Now, fans can relive the thrills as Warner Bros. Home Entertainment releases The Following: The Complete First Season on DVD and Blu-rayTM on November 13th. The Following: The Complete First Season. The release includes all 15 episodes and over three hours of bonus content including five behind-the-scenes featurettes, unaired scenes, a season finale commentary and more.
Golden Globe winner/Emmy® nominee Kevin Bacon and James Purefoy (Rome) star in this terrifying thriller from Kevin Williamson (The Vampire Diaries, Scream) about an escaped serial killer, Joe Carroll (Purefoy), and the psychologically scarred ex-FBI agent, Ryan Hardy (Bacon), who returns to stop him. Working closely with an FBI team, including cult-specialist Debra Parker (Annie Parisse) and sharp upstart Mike Weston (Shawn Ashmore), Hardy unearths that Carroll was covertly communicating with a network of followers while in prison. Challenged with an ever-growing web of murders orchestrated by the diabolical Carroll, the FBI quickly learn that they are up against not one, but an entire cult of killers.
