THE FOLLOWING: ‘Funny AND Die’ Parody Brings in Dean Winters, Michael C. Hall, Kyra Sedgwick, and More as Kevin Bacon Tries to Survive Joe Carroll

March 23, 2015 by  
Filed under The Following

THE FOLLOWING is airing two brand new episodes tonight, and that’s not the only treat fans can enjoy: the team behind the series concocted a special “Funny AND Die” parody of the series.

In the video (which you can view for yourself below), Kevin Bacon (THE FOLLOWING’s Ryan Hardy) tries to warn Dean Winters (BATTLE CREEK) about the dangers of Joe Carroll. Naturally, Winters isn’t buying it. And that’s when things start to unravel in an amazing fashion.

Check out the great video!

THE FOLLOWING Bosses on a Ryan Hardy-Centric Season 3, Michael Ealy’s New Big Bad, and More

February 9, 2015 by  
Filed under #1 featured, The Following

THE FOLLOWING: LOGO

We’re just three weeks away from the two-hour season premiere of THE FOLLOWING, and things are set to be a bit different when the show returns.

First of all, the Joe Carroll chapter of the series is over. While Carroll made it out alive (and James Purefoy’s Carroll will appear on the show)  — thanks to an alternate ending not making the final cut —  the focus of the show will shift more fully to Kevin Bacon’s Ryan Hardy. (And Ryan will have to contend with a new baddie this season.)

There’s also been a behind-the-scenes transition in showrunners, as THE FOLLOWING creator Kevin Williamson has handed over showrunner duties to a trio of show vets: writers/executive producers Brett Mahoney and Alexi Hawley, as well as director/executive producer Marcos Siega. (Williamson has been focused on CBS’ STALKER.)

I spoke with Mahoney and Hawley about the transition to showrunning THE FOLLOWING, “moving the center of the show,” why fans of THE FOLLOWING newbie Michael Ealy will be excited by the season, and more…

THE FOLLOWING: LOGO

For two seasons, Ryan Hardy’s obsession with catching Joe Carroll (and the duo’s twisted relationship) drove THE FOLLOWING’s storytelling. But now, Joe has been recaptured — and won’t be escaping — while Ryan will be facing a brand new threat in season 3.

So how will the series handle the massive shift in the show’s dynamic? And why did they ultimately opt to keep Joe alive after filming an alternate ending where he was killed? After the show’s Comic-Con panel, director/executive producer Marcos Siega and new showrunner Jennifer Johnson spoke with reporters about that, how James Purefoy (Joe) handled being in the dark about not knowing his character’s fate, and more…

So far in THE FOLLOWING’s sophomore season, the significant contact between the bad guys and the good guys has been limited (aside from Lily’s manipulation). But based on the photos from the February 24th episode, “Fly Away,” that’s about to change.

THE FOLLOWING’s Joe Carroll lives!

James Purefoy’s (Joe) return to the Fox series was hardly a surprise — after all, Purefoy “crashed” the Comic-Con panel last summer to confirm his return — but viewers got their first glimpse of a not-dead (but very bearded) Joe in the final moments of last week’s season premiere.

To get a bit of insight into what Joe has planned next, I spoke with Purefoy about his alter ego…

What happens next for Ryan Hardy? The cast and executive producers will be teasing what’s to come in season 2 during the Comic-Con panel, which is set to take place at 3:15 PM PT.

I’ll be live-blogging all of the details when the panel starts, but until then, here’s the official description of what you can expect: “Hit thriller The Following returns to Comic-Con for a second year, this time bringing the bacon to Ballroom 20. Series stars Kevin Bacon (Mystic River), Shawn Ashmore (X- Men: The Last Stand) and Valorie Curry (The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2) join creator/executive producer Kevin Williamson (Scream) and executive producer Marcos Siega (The Vampire Diaries) for a Q&A and video presentation.Season 1 left a number of casualties in its wake, including Jacob’s emotional killing of Paul, the kidnapping of Agent Parker that ended in her death, and Emma’s murder of Jacob. The explosive finale featured the highly anticipated face-off between Ryan and Carroll, ending in Carroll’s ultimate demise and leaving Ryan’s true love, Claire, hanging on for her life. From Bonanza Productions Inc. in association with Outerbanks Entertainment and Warner Bros. Television, The Following‘s second season premieres midseason on FOX.”
