Fox Releases ‘The Following’ Cast Photos

Fox has released cast photos for its upcoming Kevin Williamson (The Vampire Diaries) helmed thriller, The Following. The series dark, psychological tone is reflected in the gritty industrial setting of the photos. Check out the gallery below to get your first look at all of the characters.

The Following stars Kevin Bacon as Ryan Hardy, a retired FBI Agent who is forced to return to his job when Joe Carroll (James Purefoy), the serial killer Hardy captured ten years earlier, escapes death row and begins killing again. To make matters worse, Carroll’s infamy and charisma have enabled him to amass a devoted cult of killers who “follow his every command.”

In order for Hardy to put an end to Carroll’s reign of terror, he’ll first have to find a way to deal with the emotional and physical trauma he has been carrying since Carroll entered his life, but this time Hardy won’t be in control of the case. He will be working alongside the young Agent Mike Weston (Shawn Ashmore) and FBI Specialist Debra Parker (Annie Parisse), who is the lead agent this time around. The investigation will lead Hardy to Claire Matthews (Natalie Zea), Carroll’s ex-wife and the mother of the killer’s son (Kyle Catlett), as he attempts to save the kidnapped victim (Maggie Grace) Carroll intended to be his last ten years ago.

The series also stars Valorie Curry as Denise, Adan Canto as Billy Thomas and Nico Tortorella as Will Wilson.

The Following premieres Monday, Jan. 21 at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT on Fox.
