The Following

Terrifying cat-and-mouse thriller The Following stars Kevin Bacon (Mystic River, Apollo 13) James Purefoy (Rome), and is executive produced by Kevin Williamson (The Vampire Diaries, Dawson’s Creek, the Scream films) and Marcos Siega (Dexter, True Blood).

When notorious serial killer Joe Carroll (Purefoy) escapes from death row and embarks on a new killing spree, the FBI calls former agent Ryan Hardy (Bacon), a psychologically scarred veteran who captured Carroll nine years earlier, after Carroll murdered 14 female students on a college campus where he taught literature. Knowing Carroll better than anyone and close with Carroll’s ex-wife, Claire (Natalie ZeaJustified), Hardy works closely with an FBI team which includes no-nonsense agent Jennifer Mason (Jeananne GoossenThe Vow) and sharp upstart Mike Weston (Shawn AshmoreX-Men: The Last Stand), and he soon discovers that Carroll was not only communicating with a network of killers in the outside world, but has much more planned than just a prison escape…

    Big shame this has gone. I really do think FOX has not done the right thing what for lower Tv ratings. Could of pick them back up in S4. It is and will always be another great Tv Program. Imo it is up there with POI all tho saying that It did get a bit worse when Joe had his downfall. But still never the less it is a great program and well written.!! Here is hoping Netflix has the balls to pick it up cause Hulu does not.

    COME ON NETFLIX do the right think and RENEW this masterpiece!!!.
