We’re not even half way through the first season of Fox’s superb serial killer drama THE FOLLOWING yet but US TV channel Fox have already ordered a second series of the Kevin Williamson creation. Kevin Bacon headlines the continuing 15-show first season alongside Brit James Purefoy.

The show revolves around serial killer Joe Carroll (Purefoy) and a complex network of ‘followers’ who are all part of one big masterplan, one in which former FBI agent Ryan Hardy (Bacon) attempts to bring down.

The show, produced by the mighty Warner Brothers has seen a growing following itself after the pilot debuted to a viewing audience of over 20 million when it aired domestically back in January. THE FOLLOWING has also been successful on its Sky Atlantic airings in the UK, premiering just 24 hours after the US showing.

Deadline reports that the second series could air as soon as 2014.

Paul has been writing for film websites for over ten years. The Hollywood News was born out of love for film and his frustration at not being a very good filmmaker himself. Those who cannot do, write about – or so they say. Aside from the site, Paul has directed a music video (badly), has one credit to his name on the IMDb, enjoys running, driving (now that he has finally passed his test at the age of 33), and of course going to the movies.

    The Following being renewed for another season’s some great news and I’m looking forward to more episodes. I used to hate working nights at DISH because I had to get most of my shows recorded to watch the next day and fighting my timers was frustrating. I upgraded to the DISH Hopper DVR, so I can get the 4 major networks recorded with the PrimeTime Anytime feature during primetime hours. It’s made everyone happy and a great way to enhance your TV experience and no more of my timer issues.
