The Following: The Third and Final Season – Blu-ray Review

The Following: The Third and Final Season

Now that serial killer Joe Carroll is safely behind bars, what’s FBI agent Ryan Hardy going to do? After two viscerally-charged seasons of The Following, Hardy now finds himself in yet another twisted game of cat and mouse that may be the most depraved and bizarre yet. Will he solve the mystery and catch the killer before they kill again?

I’ve really enjoyed The Following and hate to see it go. It reminded me a lot of another FOX series that lasted only three seasons: Millennium. Much like The Following, it was dark, oftentimes gruesome, and had a tendency to give you nightmares. To me, those are all aspects that make a series like this work.

While the series definitely isn’t for those who like their shows on the lighter side, The Following is a great series for those who don’t mind a little blood and guts mixed in with their whodunits. Kevin Bacon and the rest of the cast do a superb job, and the overall tone of the series makes for one suspenseful episode after the next.

Special features on the Blu-ray edition include:
