Fox has renewed “The Following” for a second season, according to an announcement today by Kevin Reilly, Chairman of Entertainment, Fox Broadcasting Company.
“From the very beginning, we felt Kevin Williamson and Marcos Siega had created a high-quality, edge-of-your-seat drama that could break from the pack, and it is exciting to see the audience responding,” Reilly said in the news release. “Kevin Bacon and James Purefoy have given us two of the most compelling characters on television and the entire cast is incredible. I’m delighted to have this thrill ride continue on Fox for another season.”
Six episodes have already aired and “The Following” continues with nine all-new episodes airing at 8 p.m. Mondays on Fox.
A summary of tonight’s (March 4) episode, provided by Fox, is as follows:
Joe Carroll (Purefoy), with the help of attorney Olivia Warren (guest star Renee Elise Goldsberry), makes a case against Ryan (Bacon) and the FBI to be transferred to a different facility, but Ryan suspects a larger plan may be at play. Meanwhile, Emma (Valorie Curry) and Joey (Kyle Catlett) arrive at a meeting point and come across another follower who has a secret of his own.
