Is The Following season 4 finally coming?
Are you also one of those people who go home after work and watch thriller crime series to relax? Well… The Following might be the next one you should add to your watchlist. This series currently has 3 seasons but is The Following season 4 coming out soon? Keep reading to find out!
Created by Kevin Williamson, THE FOLLOWING is an American crime thriller TV series. This series tells a story about an FBI Agent Ryan Hardy played by Kevin Bacon who’s trying to recapture a serial killer named Joe Carroll.
In the first season, we get to see Carroll’s cult kidnapping his son from his former wife and how his master plan to escape custody turns out.
In the next season, a new cult is introduced and Carroll suddenly dies but is he really dead? And finally in the last season follows the life of Ryan Hardy who happens to be in a much better place.
The first season was released on 23rd January 2013 and its 15 episodes on 29th April in the same year. The second and third seasons of the series were released consecutively in the next years but there was no news of The Following season 4?
Fans were not satisfied with the finale episode released on 18th May 2015 as it ended on a cliff-hanger! They wished they could see Hardy again in action and solving more cases but sorry to tell you, The Fox has decided to cancel the show.
Why is The Following season 4 canceled?
The Following started great. Fans were so happy to receive a new crime thriller that is well executed and has an amazing cast like Kevin Bacon as Ryan Hardy, James Purefoy as Joe Carroll, Natalie Zea as Claire Matthews, Annie Parisse as Debra Parker, and many more.
Everyone was sure that they would be able to see their favorite characters on screen one more time but The Following season 4 didn’t cut. The channel decided to cancel the show, but WHY??
Looks like, the third season was not up to par for the board members. They thought that the series has lost its essence of creative writing. In the first two seasons, the two main lead characters would try to overpower each other with their cleverness and make the show more interesting but the third season lacked that.
If The Following season 4 was released, then it would have been nothing better than any average crime series and we already have loads of that.
If The Following season 4 does revive, what would be your expectations from it? do let us know in the comment section below!
