THE FOLLOWING: Get A First-Look at Season 2 & Meet the New Characters
Last yearâs #1 new seriesÂ THE FOLLOWINGÂ returns for another intense, killer season on CTV, with aÂ special preview airingÂ Sunday, Jan. 19Â on CTV, directly following the NFC Championship game. The series moves to its regular timeslot ofÂ Mondays atÂ 9 p.m. ET/PT, beginningÂ Jan. 27Â on CTV and CTV GO.
Season 1 reached a deadly conclusion with a suspenseful stand-off between Ryan Hardy (Kevin Bacon) and the showâs puppet master, Joe Carroll (James Purefoy), going up in flames. The season came to a close with Hardy and Claire Matthews (Natalie Zea) stabbed by Hardyâs former lover, Molly, a Carroll follower.
Season 2 catches up with Hardy one year later at the anniversary of Joe Carrollâs death and in the wake of a horrific new murder spree, which furthers Hardyâs suspicion that Carrollâs reign of terror is far from over. Joining the cast this season are Connie Nielsen (LAW & ORDER: SVU), Jessica Stroup (90210), Sam Underwood (DEXTER), and Tiffany Boone (Beautiful Creatures):
- Connie Nielsen stars as âLily Gray,â a Soho art dealer, who finds herself in trouble. When Ryan Hardy comes to her aid, a connection begins to form which causes even more problems for her.
- Sam Underwood plays the role of âLuke,â a very complicated and dangerous young man who may or may not be a follower of the late Joe Carroll.
- Tiffany Boone stars as âMandy Lang,â an impressionable young girl who finds herself to be the newest member of Joe Carroll’s cult, whether she likes it or not.
- Jessica Stroup stars as âMax,â Ryan Hardy’s niece. And in Hardy tradition, Max is an NYPD cop, currently working in the Intel Division. Max reconnects with Ryan and she becomes a valuable ally.
How will these new characters play out in the web of Joe Carrollâs cult? And will Carroll finally finish âThe Next Chapterâ of his book?Â
