So FOX has officially cancelled the serial killer drama, “The Following”. After Season 3 which the final episode will be this coming Monday, the show will be no more. I’m usually never upset of shows getting cancelled this soon but honestly, I’m kind of upset of this show ending this soon. While the ratings has been pretty low, the show is still very popular and has a lot of fans. Why is the show’s ratings so low and the show still has a lot of fans? Well the show is streamable for Netflix and Hulu. Maybe that’s the problem with online streaming. Online streaming will hurt ratings of these TV shows, I believe. That could explain why a lot of shows has been cancelled ’cause online streaming is taking over television.
Kevin Bacon tweeted himself about the show getting cancelled and it seems that he’s just as disappointed as the rest of us.
I’m sure FOX already has a script for Season 4 but it looks like it’s gonna go in the trash now.
It really sucks, man. I thought Kevin Bacon and James Purefoy were phenomenal together. James Purefoy who plays Joe Carroll, the leading villain was one badass TV villain. That’s part of why the show is so popular ’cause of Joe the serial killer cult leader. He was one entertaining as hell villain and he’s pretty likeable kind of like Dexter in a way.
Anyway, is this end of “The Following” for good??? I’d say never say never. Since FOX is getting so many complaints, maybe they will bring the show back for a mini-series or a TV movie like they did with “24”? That could still be a possibility.
The show was great, though. I loved all 3 seasons. Just wished it could last for a couple of more.
