Details On The Second Season Of “The Following”
I know you have heard me talk about “The Following” on Fox. It stars Kevin Bacon and it is such a great show!!!!!! The first season ended this past Monday and I am already bummed that I have to wait for the second season to start-up. If you haven’t seen this show, you need to check out season one and then get ready for season two. I did find out some information about season two that I thought I would share with you.
The Following exec Marcos Siega has hinted at a “very different” second season.
The horror drama’s first season concluded with the apparent death of serial killer Joe Carroll (James Purefoy), but The Following has been renewed for a second run by Fox.
“What I can say about season two is that it’s a very different season, but at the same time it will feel like a continuation of the story,” Siega told TVLine.”There’s no way to tell the same story again; we can’t have the exact same moments of jeopardy, because then people will get bored and it’s predictable.”
Siega also defended the decision to kill off Agent Deb Parker (Annie Parisse) in season one finale, ‘The Final Chapter’.”I knew from the day we cast Annie [Parisse] as Parker that she was going to meet some big demise,” he revealed. “But then I fell in love with Annie as a person and with Parker as a character and I wondered why we had to [kill her].”But… Parker’s death services Ryan’s Hardy’s (Kevin Bacon) character, and it’s part of the building blocks of who he is and who he’s going to become in season two.”The Following airs on Fox in the US and on Sky Atlantic in the UK – season two will premiere in 2014.
