One year has passed since FBI Agent Ryan Hardy (Kevin Bacon) caught serial killer Joe Carroll on The Following. With Carroll in jail on death row, Hardy’s been able to move on, start a new relationship with Gwen (Zuleikha Robinson) and take time to breathe. That’s where Season 3 will begin. As executive producer Brett Mahoney explained, “We wanted to get him [Hardy] enough space where you could believe that he’d arrived at a place in his life where he could be a little bit happy.”
It’s going to be a short-lived happiness. Hardy and his team will be challenged right away in the beginning of Season 3 by a new series of murders. The Following airs Mondays, 9pm on Fox.
