Joe Carroll is potentially in the final days of his life on THE FOLLOWING, and now that he knows that Ryan Hardy has no intention of attending his execution, Joe’s going to lash out.

“You will see Joe act out in a way as a result of the fact that Ryan says he’s not coming,” THE FOLLOWING co-showrunner Brett Mahoney shared. “Joe likes to get his way. He is not one who is going to take anything lying down. So, he has a little bit of of a flip-out…it does not go well.”

Check out some photos from tonight’s hour, “Kill the Messenger”…

THE FOLLOWING is shifting its focus from the Ryan Hardy/Joe Carroll cat-and-mouse game to a more Ryan-centric show in its third season.

With the loss of Joe and his followers as the season’s central Big Bad, the show is bringing in new new faces to stir up trouble. ALMOST HUMAN’s Michael Ealy will appear this season as Theo, whom the producers teased “can be different people in different lives, and it allows him to be anything he wants to be.” And kicking off the season, there is a new couple causing mayhem for Ryan and the FBI.

THE FOLLOWING’s third season is nearly here, and that means it’s time for official cast photos. And while a fair amount of people who were involved in season 2 didn’t return for season 3 (or won’t return in the same capacity), there is only one new person included in this season’s cast shots.

Take look…

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

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

THE FOLLOWING’s Max and Mark couldn’t have ended the second season in more opposite ways: for Mark, he lost everything — his mother and twin brother, Luke, were killed, and he was on his own. (Sort of.) But Max found herself in a good spot — after she took out Luke (and Joe Carroll was officially placed under arrest), she and Mike finally acted on the chemistry that had been building all year.

But rarely do things stay the status quo on THE FOLLOWING. And since season 3 will kick off with a time jump, in the video below Jessica Stroup (Max) teased “really, really big things” are happening for the Mike/Max (one of which will be devastating for the duo), while Underwood previewed Mark having to hide in plain site, and emerging from the emotional disaster of the past year…

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…

As THE FOLLOWING’s second season concludes with Monday’s “Forgive,” Ryan Hardy and Joe Carroll are put in an unfathomable position: they have to work together to save Claire from psycho twins Mark and Luke.
