The Following renewed for season 3

Kevin Bacon and pals are returning for a third season of bonkers serial killer drama, The Following...

Amidst a host of comedy renewal announcements from Fox, which has just granted new seasons to Andy Samburg hit Brooklyn Nine-NineNew Girl, and The Mindy Project, was the news that serial killer drama The Following will be returning for a third run in 2015.

The show, from Scream's Kevin Williamson, stars Kevin Bacon and James Purefoy as the cat and mouse in a story of serial killers, cults and bloody, bloody violence.

The Following's first season wasn't without its problems, but the second run - according to our reviewer at least - has established itself as a grotesquely bonkers and darkly comic exploration of obsession and manipulation. Fingers crossed that its success means Mr Bacon will no longer have to pop up in those excruciating cinema ads...
