While we have some time before FOX’s psychological thriller The Following is back for Season 2, multi-soap alum Kevin Bacon (Search For Tomorrow, Guiding Light) gave Daytime Confidential a few hints as to what we can expect for Ryan Hardy and Co. with the drama returns! Deranged serial killer Joe Carroll (James Purefoy) appeared to have died in the Season 1 finale, but is he really dead?
“We’re going to see an extension of the last scene of last season,” said Bacon of when the show picks back up. “We actually shot a longer scene so it continues. Last season was a cliffhanger so we’ll continue that and then you’ll see what happens when we jump forward a year. Ryan Hardy is healthie;, his heart is working. He’s running. He’s not in the FBI. He’s not drinking. He has relationships and is in a seemingly very different head space.”
