The upcoming crime thriller stars Kevin Bacon, who is brought back to work from retirement as an FBI profiler to track down a serial killer (James Purefoy) who has created a network of murderers through a special technology. The Following will make its debut on Monday, January 21, 2013 at 9pm ET on Fox. Creator Kevin Williams revealed that he planned two seasons of The Following. "Once you see the pilot, you'll actually understand... that it actually kind of writes itself in terms of the framework of the first season. The serial killer lays it all out," he explained. "And so the first season will be watching that happen, and then we'll watch how our FBI team and Kevin Bacon's character has to constantly stay one step ahead of him." The Following also stars Maggie Grace, Shawn Ashmore, Annie Parisse and the recently-cast Warren Kole and Mike Colter.
