THE FOLLOWING: Alexi Hawley Teases Season 3’s New Faces

February 20, 2015 by  


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.

“We have Hunter Parrish [who plays Kyle] and Ruth Kearney [who plays Daisy] launching the season with us, and we were incredibly lucky to get them,” THE FOLLOWING co-showrunner Alexi Hawley shared. “They play this Bonnie and Clyde-like married couple [of] killers. What we loved about them is what we’re allowed to do with our show: [we] create these murderous people, who are also very identifiable in other ways; to create this couple who is actually very in love with each other, and committed to each other [and] at the same time they do these horrible things. You can’t help but be compelled by this relationship and root for them, even when you should be rooting against them. The best moments for me in the show are when you have our good guys chasing our bad guys, and you’re like, ‘I want them to get away! No! I want them to get caught!'”

But the bad guys won’t be the only one beefing up their ranks: the show has added LAW & ORDER: SPECIAL VICTIMS UNIT’s Diane Neal as an FBI agent.

“She plays somebody from Ryan’s past,” Hawley teased. “A fellow FBI agent who works out of Quantico, who is tied in with a serial killer case that Ryan is investigating midway through the season. I think that’s all I can really say about that.”


THE FOLLOWING premieres Monday, March 2nd at 9 PM on Fox.
