'Smallville' alum Allison Mack to guest-star on 'The Following'

The Following will stage a Smallville reunion in season three. Allison Mack has landed a guest-starring role on the Fox drama, EW has learned.


'The Following' is getting new showrunners

The Following is getting a quick turnover in showrunners. Jennifer Johnson, who only recently replaced creator Kevin Williamson as showrunner, is leaving Fox’s serial killer drama. Deadline first reported the news.

In the wake of Johnson’s departure a group of three—Brett Mahoney, Alexi Hawley, and Marcos Siega—will share showrunning duties under creator Williamson. Mahoney and Hawley were previously co-executive producers on the show, but will now be executive producers. Marcos Siega is an executive producer and has directed a number of episodes of the show.

Johnson joined the show in June as Williamson ceded his showrunner duties to focus on his new CBS show Stalker, starring Dylan McDermott and Maggie Q. Johnson is remaining at Warner Bros. Television, but will now focus on development.


'The Following' post-mortem: EP on who's REALLY dead, that cliffhanger, and what you WON'T see in season 3

The Following closed out its second season Monday night with a finale that closed some chapters, left several people dead, and had an ending that, executive producer Marcos Siega says, was always meant to be a taste of something different.

In the conversation below, Siega opens up about said finale, telling us who’s really dead, what we’ll see more of next season, why they filmed two endings, and why fans’ reaction to the ending surprised him and creator Kevin Williamson. READ FULL STORY

'The Following' stars open up about the latest shocking death; plus, an EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

This story contains details about Monday’s episode of The Following. Proceed with caution!

While we certainly didn’t see Lily Gray’s demise in the cards, Connie Nielsen says she saw her character’s death coming “a mile away.” From her perspective, Lily’s days were always numbered. But sad as Nielsen is to be among the casualties this season, she tells EW, “I think [she died] exactly how she came in — she came in really just outrageous and strong and unafraid.” “I feel like she went exactly the way she would have wanted to go.”

But how did she go? That’s yet another twisted chapter to this story. READ FULL STORY

Fox renews 'Mindy Project,' 'The Following,' more

Brooklyn Nine-Nine, The Mindy Project, and New Girl have all been renewed for new seasons, Fox announced Friday.

The network’s pickup of freshman comedy Brooklyn comes as no surprise, considering the Andy Samberg vehicle took a top prize at the Golden Globes in January, and both Mindy and New Girl, going into their third and fourth seasons respectively, were considered safe bets for renewal.

Fox has also renewed The Following, which will return for a third season.

“These shows are some of the best and acclaimed series on television, with influential, culture-driving stars, and some of the best, most creative talent behind the camera,” said bosses Kevin Reilly and Joe Earley in a joint statement. “All four are core assets within our 2014-15 portfolio of content, and we’re really happy to bring them back to our FOX fans for another season.”

The news comes a little over a month after Fox announced the renewal of Bones for a tenth season. Sleepy Hollow and Glee are also set to return, with the latter going into its sixth and final season.

The fates of drama Almost Human and comedies Dads, Raising Hope, and Enlisted remain undecided. For more on their odds, check out EW’s annual TV Death Watch.

'The Following': Unmasking season 2's fresh faces

Given the abundance of O-neg spilled during the first season of Fox’s The Following, it should come as little surprise that executive producers have pumped plenty of new blood into the series’ second season, premiering Jan. 19 (following the NFC Championships).

After cleaning up the splatter from the cliffhanger finale, The Following will fast-forward a year, where former FBI agent Ryan Hardy (Kevin Bacon) is recovering nicely, thanks in part to niece Max (played by 90210 grad Jessica Stroup). And the handcuffs don’t fall far from the squad car (if you know what we mean), with Max carrying on the family business of law enforcement. “It’s an important part of the setup,” executive producer Marcos Siega explains of Ryan’s relationship with his niece, who not only lends him moral support, but tactical support as well.

And Edgar Allan Poe knows he’ll need it, what with a new group of acolytes inciting murder and mayhem in Joe Carroll’s name. Watch out for the baddest baddie of the bunch, angelic-looking Luke, played by British actor Sam Underwood — no stranger to homicide best practices, having served as a short-lived apprentice to Dexter Morgan.

'The Following' season 2: Cast and EP preview 'vigilante' Ryan -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

The second season of Fox’s The Following will find Ryan Hardy (Kevin Bacon) turning over a new leaf. He’s teaching, sober, and no longer involved in law enforcement in any capacity. But as you might guess, things don’t stay that way.

“Ryan’s actually trying to put the pieces back together but he can’t get away from Joe Carroll and Joe’s cult,” previews executive producer Kevin Williamson in the exclusive video below.

The problems for Ryan start when a cult of Joe’s followers stage a terrifying attack on a subway car that leaves many people dead and Ryan hesitant to get involved in the investigation. Or so we think. “There is a Jekyll and Hyde aspect to Ryan this year,” Bacon says. “On the surface he’s really keeping it together but in the darker corridors of his psyche, maybe not so much.”

Watch the video for more scoop on the upcoming season.

Fox is putting 'The Following' season 1 online in time for holiday binge

Jacinda Barrett snags recurring role on 'The Following'

Next year, The Following will stop being polite — and start getting real.

EW has learned that Real World: London cast member turned actress Jacinda Barrett has booked a recurring guest role on season 2 of Fox’s serial killer drama. Barrett will play Julia, “a very disarming and alluring woman whose mysterious intentions send several main characters in a frightening new direction.” She was last seen on the small screen in ABC’s convoluted, quickly-canceled thriller Zero Hour.

The Following returns to Fox Monday, Jan. 20 at 9 p.m. ET.

Are we to take the melting Poe mask to mean we’re done with Edgar Allen Poe this year? Or that we’re going to meet someone who is more evil than Joe Carroll? Is the latter even possible? Check out the promos below and submit theories!

'The Following' casts '90210' star as series regular -- EXCLUSIVE

Fox’s dark drama The Following has cast two new series regulars (and potential Joe Carroll victims!) for season two.

First, 90210 star Jessica Stroup is joining the show. She’ll play Max, the niece of Ryan Hardy (Kevin Bacon). She’s an NYPD cop, currently working in the Intel Division. Max reconnects with Ryan and she becomes a valuable ally.

The Following has also hired Tiffany Boone (Beautiful Creatures), who will play Mandy, an impressionable young girl who finds herself to be the newest cult member following Joe Carroll (James Purefoy) — whether she likes it or not.

But wait, there’s more: There’s been a ton of season two additions to the show breaking in recent weeks: NYPD Blue alum James McDaniel will play an FBI agent, Homeland actress Valerie Cruz will play an NYPD cop, Gladiator actress Connie Nelson will play a love interest for Ryan and recent Dexter actor Sam Underwood will play a bad guy. The Following returns to Fox in January.
