The Following will return for its second run on Sky Atlantic in January.
Psychological thriller The Following will return for its second series on Tuesday 21st January at 10pm in the UK.
The Sky broadcast will transmit the day after its American premiere. Created by Kevin Williamson, the series stars Kevin Bacon and James Purefoy.
The first season finale saw a highly anticipated face-off between FBI agent Ryan Hardy (Bacon) and notorious serial killer Joe Carroll (Purefoy), who had escaped from death row and embarked on a new killing spree. Ryan raced desperately to stop Joe before his endgame reached its deadly conclusion, ending in Joe’s seemingly ultimate demise and leaving Ryan’s true love, Claire (Natalie Zea), hanging on for her life.
Now, heading into its intense, spellbinding second series Sky Atlantic viewers will catch up with Ryan in the wake of a horrific new murder spree. The FBI calls on him and Mike Weston (Shawn Ashmore) to speak with the lone survivor, Lily (Connie Nielsen), in order to help them solve the case. Ryan is reluctant to re-engage with the FBI, but finds a valuable ally in his niece, Max (Jessica Stroup), an NYPD cop working in the Intel Division.
As the investigation proceeds, Ryan crosses paths with several complicated individuals, including Luke (Sam Underwood) and Mandy Lang (Tiffany Boone), which furthers his suspicion that Joe Carroll’s reign of terror is far from over.
