Critic Consensus: While The Following still engineers effective thrills -- and hasn't let up on the gore -- a creeping predictability has set in, reducing the number of chilling surprises.

News & Interviews for The Following: Season 2
This season instantly ratchets up the sadism with the aforementioned treatment of a comely corpse as a living doll. Unlike the first time around, that's pretty much doused my interest in playing along any further.
It's truly been an interesting change from the premise of last season.
I'm sure that Bacon knows that his wife, Kyra Sedgwick, would have solved all this in two episodes of The Closer.
Together, [Mark and Luke] make an incredible one-two punch of creepiness.
If this start is any indication of what's to come, I'm excited to watch this chilling thriller soaked in the dark and mysterious terror.
Audience Reviews for The Following: Season 2
Praise Joe! The gritty and intense crime drama The Following continues to get darker in its second season. After being drawn out of hiding, convicted serial killer Joe Carroll seeks refuge with a religious cult and begins to manipulate them into doing his will; meanwhile former FBI agent Ryan Hardy works secretly to find and kill Carroll. The season is oddly structured as the transitions between the story threats are a little stark and uneven. However, the show does an interesting job at exploring themes of religion and family, and how they can be abused and perverted. There are some rough spots throughout the episodes and some failed subplots, but Season 2 of The Following is still fresh and exciting.
