Spoilers if you aren’t caught up on The Following through Season 1! Joe Carroll is dead. Or is he? The first season of The Following left off with James Purefoy’s character dying in a fire after facing off with Kevin Bacon’s Ryan Hardy. The teaser for the series’ second season offers a pretty obvious hint that Mr. Carroll may not be as dead as he’d like people to believe.
Is Zach Hamilton the next Dexter? That's a question that remains to be answered during the final season of Dexter. It was really only just posed during Sunday night's episode - if you're not caught up, consider yourselves spoiler-warned! - as Dexter stalked the young murderer and plotted to kill him before eventually deciding to take the lad under his wing and be his Harry.
Capes are back! Or they will be at Comic-Con this year. Someone tell Edna ("No capes!"). Warner Bros. unveiled the official 2013 Comic-Con bags and they come with detachable capes. That, added to the announcement that the bags are fashioned like a backpack this year causes me some mild concern that many of us may feel compelled to run while wearing it, as such a compulsion can arise when wearing a cape.
For the passionate TV fan, it's not difficult to find great TV-related panels at Comic-Con. In fact, the real challenge is trying to figure out how to get to all of the great panels in a given day, which is virtually impossible. When it comes down to it, it's all about prioritizing. And Friday's schedule is a prime example. Is it possible to get to the Adventure Time panel at the Hilton and also make The Walking Dead panel over in Hall H?
Warren Kole showed us his tidy side in USA's short-lived cop series Common Law, and then he took things to a creepy level when he headed over to Fox for his role in the cult drama The Following. Now it looks like the actor is headed back to USA for a spot on White Collar. The USA series stars Matt Bomer as Neal Caffrey, a "white collar criminal" who now works with the FBI to help them solve crimes. Kole's set to play a recurring role in the series' fifth season,
The Following's end is near. Or the first season's end is near. Following last night's episode "The End is Near" is the final chapter of Season 1, "The Final Chapter." Ok, enough of the word play. Season 1 ends next Monday night, and after what went down this week, anything can happen. Am I alone in hoping that "anything" involves something bad happening to Emma? She's kind of due for her own misfortune, given what she's brought on others. Read no further if you aren't caught up on the The Following!
Remember in Terminator when the terminator showed up from the future and started killing lots of Sarah Connors? Well, it looks like Joe Carroll is pulling a similar stunt in next Monday's episode of The Following, except for him, it's less about eliminating anyone who might someday give birth to mankind's savior and more about sending a message to the FBI. All Claire's beware! Joe Carroll wants his wife back, and based on the promo, it looks like he's willing to kill (or have his followers kill) a lot of Claires if it means getting that message through to the FBI.
One of the biggest hits to emerge from the mid-season premieres is Fox's The Following. The slasher from Scream writer Kevin Williamson is amassing a good-sized cult of its own and has already been granted another season from the network. And to see where the craziness is headed over the next few weeks, Fox has put together this "Movie Trailer" for Season 1.
As the trailer for next week's episode reminds us, there are only eight new episodes left of The Following's first season. On the bright side, Fox has assured us that those eight episodes won't be the series' last when they announced the renewal of the suspenseful thriller yesterday. The Following will be back for Season 2. In the meantime, last night's episode marked another game changer, leaving the remainder of Season 1 full of potential for dark and disturbing things.
Fox's psychological thriller The Following has been delivering steady ratings, dipping only slightly from its series premiere of more than 10 million viewers. So while it's not especially surprising to learn that the network has decided to give it an early renewal ahead of the spring, it's certainly good news for those of us who have grown used to looking forward to Mondays to see what happens next to Joe Carroll's creepy followers and Kevin Bacon's Ryan Hardy, the man trying to track them down.
It doesn't take the astute mind of a TV critic to see similarities in this seasons two new serial killer dramas, namely Fox's The Following and The CW's Cult. Of course, there are bound to be many differences and two projects that share a strong resemblance coming out at the same time is also not a rare occurrence. It's just another in a long line of Deep Impact - Armageddon situations. Here are five other awkwardly timed television releases...
The Following delivered a particularly suspenseful episode last night. If you aren't caught up on the Fox thriller through Episode 5 ("The Siege"), read no further! If you have, then you know the show left off with a pretty fantastic cliffhanger this week. See what's going in in next Monday's "The Fall" in the preview ahead!
After three episodes earned solid ratings, The Following seems to have already gained an increasingly large one of its own but the serial killer series is as frustrating as it is entertaining. The Fox program has more than a few great performances, some thrilling sequences and enough blood to satisfy the thirstiest of horror fans, however, the writing in Kevin Scream Williamson's return to the slasher is often also the bad kind of cringe-worthy.
The second episode of The Following aired last night, giving us the next chapter of Kevin Williamson's creepy new drama series and leaving off with yet another disturbing sequence as we saw, once again, what the people in Joe Carroll's cult-like following are capable of. Check out the promo for next week's episode, "The Poet's Fire."
The Following premiered on Fox last night, introducing us to Kevin Bacon's character, former FBI agent Ryan Hardy, and the creepy serial killer Joe Carroll, played by James Purefoy. For those who didn't catch the series premiere, it's now available to watch online in all its creepy, suspenseful glory.
