Even though "The Following" won't be back on FOX until next year doesn't mean we can't wait to hear the full cast talk about Season 2! "The Following" will hold an on stage Q&A video presentation with its cast and executive producers, including Connie Nielsen, James Purefoy, Kevin Bacon, Kevin Williamson, Marcos Siega, Shawn Ashmore , Valorie Curry. Even more excited than seeing the cast discuss the upcoming season of the hit thriller is the sneak peek video presentation! In the description of the panel, they describes Season 1's finale as the "highly anticipated face-off between Ryan and Carroll, ending in Carroll's ultimate demise."
But even if Carroll is actually dead, which I am totally not convinced of, can we really say that the fire was his "ultimate demise." Unfortunately for Ryan and Claire, Carroll will never fully be gone while his "following" is alive and well. And as we saw in the Season 1 finale, his "following" is far dismantled, meaning Carroll's work is still in progress. We thought Carroll's crazy cult was behind us until Ryan Claire were viciously stabbed by Ryan's former girlfriend, who is now a faithful Joe follower, Molly. And while Season 2 is very much a mystery executive producer, Marcos Siega has recently revealed some juicy news about the future of "The Following." Siega revealed that Carroll may not be dead, but in a shocking twist Claire may be dead after suffering multiple stab wounds at the hands of Molly.
As if the reemergence of Carroll wasn't enough, Siega teased that a new villain may be on the loose. And as for Joe's faithful "following" they are still together and still alive, in Season 2 the whereabouts of Emma may be discovered as well as the safe house for the new wave of followers. When considering the new followers, Siega stated that the audience is yet to witness Carroll's potential and reach, "if you really look at the season and look at the timeline, since the pilot, it's only been 3 and a half months. Geographically in terms of the United States, we've been in Virginia, Pennsylvania and Maryland coasts. But clearly we've set this up that we don't know how far this reaches, how many people it's touched. There's people on the West Coast. There's people in the middle of the country. Joe has acolytes everywhere."
