Fox has released a new featurette for Season 2 of The Following, which debuts in a special time on Sunday, January 19 at 10 PM ET, following the NFC Champtionship game, before the show returns to its Monday 10 PM time slot on January 27. Series stars Kevin Bacon (Ryan Hardy) and Shawn Ashmore (Mike Weston) reveal what has changed with their characters this season, and we also see new footage of a brutal subway murder. Take a look at the video, then read on for more details about Season 2.
Season 2 will catch up with Ryan Hardy (Bacon) one year later in the wake of an horrific new murder spree. The FBI calls on Ryan and Mike Weston (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 (James Purefoy) Reign of terror is far from over. Valorie Curry returns as Emma. Other new faces joining the show this year include Valerie Cruz as an NYPD cop who works closely with Mike Weston, James McDaniel as an FBI agent, Keith Carradine as a friend of Ryan, Jacinda Barrett as Julia, a disarming and alluring woman with mysterious intentions, and Lee Tergesen as Kurt Bolen, a seemingly normal family man who may harbor a dark secret.
