Golden Globe winner and Emmy nominee Kevin Bacon and UK’s James Purefoy (“Rome”) star in this terrifying new thriller from Kevin Williamson (“The Vampire Diaries” and “Scream”).

When notorious serial killer Joe Carroll (Purefoy) escapes from death row and embarks on a new killing spree, the FBI calls former agent Ryan Hardy (Bacon), a psychologically scarred veteran who captured Carroll nine years earlier, after Carroll murdered 14 female students on a college campus where he taught literature. Knowing Carroll better than anyone and close with Carroll’s ex-wife, Claire, Hardy works closely with an FBI team, which includes no-nonsense agent Jennifer Mason and sharp upstart Mike Weston, and soon discovers that Carroll was not only communicating with a network of killers in the outside world, but has much more planned than just a prison escape – and there’s no telling how many additional killers are out there.

As Hardy and the FBI team are challenged by the ever-growing web of murder around them, masterminded by the diabolical Carroll (who’s writing a novel with Hardy as his protagonist), Hardy will not only get a second chance to capture Carroll, but another shot at redemption, as he’s faced with not one but an entire cult of serial killers.

    Thanks for posting those clips! I didn’t get to watch the premier last night, and when I got to my office at DISH this morning, everyone was talking about The Following. I didn’t want to be left out of the conversation, so I logged on to DISHOnline.com. They post new FOX episodes the day after they air on TV. I watch the premier, and I was joining in on the conversation by lunch! Everyone had their own opinion, but I thought it was a good start for the show.
