The season three finale of ‘The Following’ on May 18 ultimately became the series finale when the show was cut from Fox’s lineup. So, did it add up to what the EP wanted?
Where was season four of The Following going to go? What would be the future of Ryan Hardy? Would he ever meet his child? These are all questions that were left in the air after the finale, but Alexi Hawley, the show’s EP broke it all down for us. Warning: spoilers ahead.
I know, you’re still reeling about your favorite shows getting canceled. However, it’s a new year of TV — and a lot of new shows are coming. So, here’s a few that you should tune into this year, now that you have some free time.
I’m still in a post-The Following hangover recovery, but I’m ready for something new. I had to say goodbye to Revenge, but I’m ready for Ryan Murphy murder back in my life. Don’t you agree? Here’s your quick guide to TV coming up (and for a refresher of everything picked up and canceled, here’s our scorecard.)
James Purefoy was ready for Joe to die — more ready than most fans! The actor, who just landed his first post-‘Following’ role in ‘Hap & Leonard,’ dissected that crazy yet ‘satisfying’ death to HollywoodLife.com.
We all knew it was happening, but the end of Joe Carroll was the end of an era on The Following — not just for fans, but for James Purefoy himself. Luckily, we got to chat with him after the episode and I hate to break it to y’all — but Joe’s really gone.
Say goodbye to Joe Carroll and hello to Hap Collins. Sundance TV has just announced that James Purefoy will star alongside Michael Kenneth Williams in the new show, ‘Hap & Leonard.’
Based on the book by Joe Lansdale, Sundance TV will soon begin filming a six-episode series, Hap and Leonard. James Purefoy, whose time on The Following, sadly came to an end on April 27, has been named the lead character Hap, a laborer who works on a plantation farm after years in federal prison for refusing to be drafted into the Vietnam War. Luckily, he has his best friend Leonard on his side.
All season long has been building up to Joe’s execution, and it took a shocking twist! ‘The Following’ said adios to a major character on April 27’s episode, and it feels very, very final. Here’s our recap!
The Following is throwing us more shockers, and Joe’s execution day proved that things are becoming more intense for Joe Carroll (James Purefoy) and Ryan Hardy (Kevin Bacon). Major developments occurred in the tenth episode of season three — and some closure also came about following a shocking death. Find out who died!
Is Ryan making a deal with the devil? It may just happen! In an exclusive look of the March 30 episode, perfectly titled, ‘Reunion,’ we see that Ryan wants answers from Joe about Strauss — and he’ll do whatever it takes to get them.
“What took you so long?” That’s the question Joe Carroll (James Purefoy) asked Ryan Hardy (Kevin Bacon) at the shocking end of last week’s two-hour special, but what’s next for the arch enemies? Well, Ryan needs a favor — and Joe never does anything without thinking of himself first. Plus, meet the brand new villain ready to terrorize NYC!
The season 3 premiere of ‘The Following’ answered many questions, but didn’t tell us what really happened between Max and Mike. So after waiting all season two for that kiss, how did Tom just swoop in? And is there hope? Well, Shawn Ashmore and Jessica Stroup say don’t give up just yet.
If we know anything about The Following, it’s that no one can ever just be happy (oh and that Joe Carroll’s never actually gone). The premiere showed just that — Max (Jessica Stroup) and Mike (Shawn Ashmore)’s romance was cut short, and she’s moved on to Tom (Gbenga Akinnagbe). We saw the awkward tension in the season premiere — and there’s a lot more of that to come.
At the end of season two of ‘The Following,’ Joe was left behind bars for good, and Ryan was ready to really start over. But we know this bromance isn’t over yet — and Kevin Bacon and James Purefoy aren’t ready to actually let go either.
The wait is finally over! The Following returns to Fox on March 2 and trust me — you’re going to want to tune in for this premiere. Joe Carroll (James Purefoy) may be behind bars, but we all know that doesn’t mean anything. So, what’s in store for Ryan Hardy (Kevin Bacon)? Luckily, HollywoodLife.com sat down with both Kevin and James to get to the bottom of the season.
The FBI is back on March 2, and even though Joe Carroll is behind bars (in maximum security), we know that these three aren’t completely safe. Here’s a look at Ryan Hardy, Agent Mike Weston and of course, Max.
Season three of The Following is less than a month away and basically, we’re on the edge our seats. In a brand new promo photo, exclusive to HollywoodLife.com, we see the powerful threesome, Max (Jessica Stroup), her uncle Ryan (Kevin Bacon) and of course, her now-ex, Mike Weston (Shawn Ashmore).
Season two of ‘The Following’ is coming to an end, but what does that mean for a newly revived Claire? We know that Joe is eager to find her, but what will he do when he does? James Purefoy spoke exclusively to HollywoodLife.com about the shocking finale to come.
Season two of the most deliciously disturbing show on TV, The Following comes to an end on April 28, but first, James Purefoy revealed what his terrifying character Joe Carroll is hoping for when he finally finds Claire (Natalie Zea).
It seems that every death on ‘The Following’ is completely shocking, but on April 21, one of our favorite followers was killed off — and we can’t wait to see how Joe Carroll will go on without her.
When it comes to Emma (Valorie Curry), there was nothing that Joe Carroll (James Purefoy) could do wrong. No matter what, she stood by him. So after her brutal murder, how will he react to the news on the April 28th season finale? HollywoodLife.com spoke to the woman behind the character to get the scoop on what we can expect from that explosive finale of The Following.
The March 24th episode of ‘The Following’ was appropriately titled ‘Teacher’s Pet,’ as we got a look at the new cult of followers that Joe Carroll has created. In an exclusive behind-the-scenes video, HollywoodLife.com is taking you on set with the cult to get a closer look.
It’s hard to keep all of Joe Carroll (James Purefoy)’s followers straight on The Following, and on the newest episode, we were introduced the dressed-in-red clan. The video below gives you a look of what went down on set while Joe was “testing some of the new followers,” as Agent Mike Weston (Shawn Ashmore) says.
On Jan. 19, the season premiere of ‘The Following’ definitely brought some twists — two huge ones, to be exact. Both of them made me realize why this show is one of the scariest on TV . . . and that season two will be even more disturbing as season one.
Spoiler alert — if you haven’t yet watched the season two premiere of The Following (shame on you), you may not want to continue reading. Or, if you like spoilers, click on in!
I have to admit that ‘The Following’ lost me last year. The murders felt too trite and gratuitous; I didn’t care about the main characters enough to want them to not die. But after screening the series’ second season premiere, ‘Resurrection,’ I can confirm that Season 2 is going to be way, way better.
Fox’s Kevin Bacon-starrer The Following is never going to hook you if you’re not a horror fan. But I am a horror fan — a huge one, in fact — and even I thought that Season 1 of The Following had major chinks in its armor. But Kevin Williamson is a great producer, and the show’s dynamic Season 2 premiere is a giant step in the right direction. Here are five reasons why The Following is better this time around.
