Looking forward to the return of “The Following” next month on Fox? We’re still disappointed that it went so off the rails in Season 1 but will be tuning in for at least the first few episodes of Season 2. If you’re with us, here are two new teaser promos.
The acclaimed thriller starring Kevin Bacon and James Purefoy will unveil a special preview Sunday, January 19, immediately after the “NFC Championship Game” (live, 6:00 PM-CC ET), kicking off 15 heart-pounding weeks of uninterrupted episodes. The Season 2 premiere of “The Following” will air Monday, January 27 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT), following an encore of the preview (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT).
“The Following” Season 2:
Created by Kevin Williamson (“The Vampire Diaries,” “Dawson’s Creek,” the Scream franchise) and starring Golden Globe Award-winning actor Kevin Bacon (X-Men: The Last Stand, Frost/Nixon) and James Purefoy (“Rome”), Season 2 will catch up with RYAN HARDY (Bacon) in the wake of a horrific new murder spree. The FBI calls on Ryan and MIKE WESTON (Shawn Ashmore) to speak with the lone survivor, LILY (Connie Nielsen; “Boss,” “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit”), in order to help them solve the case. Ryan is reluctant to re-engage with the FBI but finds a valuable ally in his niece, MAX (Jessica Stroup, “90210”), an NYPD cop working in the Intel Division.
As the investigation proceeds, Ryan crosses paths with several complicated individuals, including LUKE (Sam Underwood, “Dexter”) and MANDY LANG (Tiffany Boone, Beautiful Creatures), which furthers his suspicion that JOE CARROLL’s (Purefoy) reign of terror is far from over.
Other new faces joining the show this year include Valerie Cruz as an NYPD cop who works closely with Mike Weston, James McDaniel as an FBI agent, Keith Carradine as a friend of Ryan, Jacinda Barrett as Julia, a disarming and alluring woman with mysterious intentions, and Lee Tergesen as Kurt Bolen, a seemingly normal family man who may harbor a dark secret.
