Fox is doing a bit of reshuffling as far as the finale of Sleepy Hollow and the season two debut of The Following is concerned. Sleepy Hollow will now conclude its first season in a special two-hour event on Monday, January 20th from 8-10pm ET/PT.
The Following, meanwhile, will stick to its original plan to debut season two “special preview” on Sunday, January 19th with the official season premiere to kick off on Monday, January 27th (not the 20th, as originally planned).
Fox is going big with The Following, making an event out of its premiere.
Last season’s number 1 new series, returns for its 14-week second season with a special two-night season premiere event, beginning Sunday, Jan. 19 (10:00-11:00 PM ET/7:00-8:00 PM PT), following the NFC Championship Game (live, 6:00-10:00 PM ET).
The first poster for graphic novel adaptation The Scribbler has come online and can be viewed below, thanks to EW. Also inside, courtesy of THR, a season two promo poster for The Following.
In The Scribbler, Katie Cassidy (Taken) plays the title character in the John Suits-directed thriller, which co-stars Garret Dillahunt, Michelle Trachtenberg, Eliza Dushku, Gina Gershon, Michael Imperioli, Billy Campbell and Sasha Grey.
Fox has revealed another promo for The Following’s second season, this one featuring Kevin Bacon’s Ryan Hardy as he ruminates on his encounters with Joe Carroll’s James Purefoy. Ah, but then it takes a clever twist. Head inside for a look at the 30-second spot teasing what’s to come in early 2014.
After the jump, find two new teasers for Fox’s series The Following. Interpret them and share your thoughts via our comments section. What could the burning Edgar Allan Poe mask mean? No clue, but we dig the visual. Season 2 returns in January. I’m sure this is not the last of the promos, so stay tuned for more.
It has been a busy morning on Twitter for two TV showrunners returning to the grind. Both Bryan Fuller and Kevin Williamson, of Hannibal and The Following (respectively), took to their social media to alert fans that production has begun on season two of their shows. I just like the timing of both posts (Fuller tweeted a pic and then, shortly after, Williamson fired off an image). Check out the pics they ran inside. Both Hannibal and The Following return in early 2014.
Fans of The Following are still a little ways away from the season two premiere, so they’ll have to latch on to any bit of information they can get until early 2014 (when new episodes begin).
The last we heard about any season two casting, Sam Underwood (of this season of Dexter) was joining the cast. Now, actress Connie Nielsen is also boarding the series.
Nielsen has appeared in The Devil’s Advocate and will also be seen in Lars Von Trier’s Nymphomaniac. So, who is she playing in The Following?
Comic-Con brought about the news that some new characters were coming to Bates Motel in its sophomore run on A&E. In our interviews with the cast, we learned Norman was going to get a girlfriend.
Deadline reports Paloma Kwiatkowski (Percy Jackson: The Sea Of Monsters) is joining the cast to play Cody Brennan. The site describes her as “a small town party girl who befriends Norman (Freddie Highmore) and bonds with him, showing him how having fun and “acting out” can sublimate pain – at least for awhile.” Bates Motel also recently added Michael Vartan to the cast.
