The Walking Dead, Nightbreed: The Director’s Cut & Hannibal Nominated in 41st Annual Saturn Awards

1 hour ago | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

They've done what they've had to do to survive on AMC's The Walking Dead, brining hope and despair to palpable life on the small screen with gritty realism every week. Covered in grime, splattered in blood, and trudging down the sun-baked backroads and brush-bordered trails this season, the stellar cast and crew of The Walking Dead have paid their dues and then some, and now they're getting a tip of the cap in return with seven nominations for the 41st Annual Saturn Awards.

Andrew Lincoln, Norman Reedus, Emily Kinney, Melissa McBride, Chandler Riggs, and Andrew J. West have all earned nominations, with the TV series itself receiving one as well. Also recognized in this year's nominations is Scream Factory's Nightbreed: The Director's Cut Blu-ray, NBC's Hannibal TV series, Only Lovers Left Alive, and many more.

Horror / Sci-Fi Round-Up: Independence Day 2, Deep in the Darkness Blu-ray / DVD, Treachery

2 hours ago | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Welcome to another horror/sci-fi round-up! This time around we have word of two big cast confirmations for Independence Day 2, details on Scream Factory's Deep in the Darkness Blu-ray / DVD release, and information on the new Blanc/Biehn Productions film, Treachery.

Independence Day 2: Last night it was revealed that the first official cast member had signed on to star in Roland Emmerich's Independence Day 2, the sequel to his 1996 film that featured massive alien-induced destruction and larger-than-life characters. It's now been confirmed that one of those characters will be coming back, as Emmerich tweeted last night that Jeff Goldblum will appear in the sequel, likely reprising his role as the brainy and dryly humorous David Levinson, who teamed up with fighter pilot Captain Steven Hiller to take down the mothership in the original film. Smith will not be coming back to reprise his role as Steven. »

The Following season 3 episode 1 review: New Blood

11 hours ago | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The Following America's craziest, most violent, unpredictable and poor taste show starring Kevin Bacon, is back for season 3...

This review contains spoilers.

3.1 New Blood

No matter where you go in New York City, there's some sort of dimly lit basement full of construction equipment. It seems like, as part of a power-saving measure, nobody ever has the lights on and they're incapable of turning them on. This, ladies and gentlemen, is the world of The Following, America's favorite dumb show about people getting shot, stabbed, strangled, and otherwise mutilated for entertainment purposes. Love it or hate it, and most people seem to hate it, this is a show that knows what it's here for, and it doesn't waste much time before jumping right into the kind of mayhem that we expect from Joe's cult of crazies.

It's a lovely wedding for Gina Mendez (Valerie Cruz) and her partner, capped off »

Last year, Fox renewed The Following for a third season -- despite the fact that the series lost a third of its audience during the second season. Will the ratings continue to fall this time around? Will The Following be cancelled or renewed for a fourth season? Stay tuned.

The third season of The Following picks up a year after former FBI agent Ryan Hardy (Kevin Bacon) and his team put serial killer and cult leader Joe Carroll (James Purefoy) back on death row. The rest of the cast includes Shawn Ashmore, Jessica Stroup, Michael Ealy, Sam Underwood, and Zuleikha Robinson.

The higher a show's ratings (particularly the 18-49 demo), the better the chances for survival. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available -- typically the following morning, around 11:30am Est/8:30am Pst. Refresh to see the latest. (more…) »

Ratings: NBC’s ‘Voice’ Dominates; Fox’s ‘Following’ Has Decent Return

3 March 2015 9:19 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Fox’s “The Following” kicked off its third season Monday with decent numbers, down from last year but above the recent timeslot average of “Sleepy Hollow.” Like everything else on the Monday schedule, though, it was devoured by NBC’s “The Voice,” which dominated the night despite slight demo declines from its week-earlier premiere.

According to preliminary national estimates from Nielsen,the Kevin Bacon drama “The Following” averaged a 1.6 rating/4 share in adults 18-49 and 4.8 million viewers overall in the 9 o’clock hour — down 20% from its timeslot premiere a year ago but matching the show’s Monday average of last season. “Sleepy Hollow” did below a 1.6 with all six of its 2015 originals, including last week’s finale (1.4).

“Following” may have a tougher time in coming weeks, though, as its “Gotham” lead-in will be airing some repeats. Last night, “Gotham” cooled off some (2.0/6 in 18-49, 6.1 million viewers overall), declining 0.3 from its 2015 high set last week. »

‘The Following’ Ratings Return Down, ‘The Bachelor’ & ‘The Voice’ Steady As NBC Wins Night

3 March 2015 9:10 AM, PST | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

It was one of those mixed nights on primetime Monday with a debut, a near end, repeats and a rising original or two. The debut was the Season 3 premiere of The Following (1.6/4) at 9 Pm after Gotham (2.0/6), with the near end being ABC's The Bachelor (2.4/7). Unsurprisingly, the return of Fox’s Kevin Bacon-led thriller series was down from its Season 2 debut of January 19 last year. I say the 63% drop was unsurprising because that previous premiere was on a Sunday at… »

Kevin Bacon on The Following, Playing an Antihero, and Footloose

2 March 2015 9:00 PM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

When we left Ryan Harding and the world-weary team on The Following last season, though they were battered and bruised, they seemed to have finally nabbed the bad guy. But of course, evil can’t truly be contained on this show. Kevin Bacon spoke to Vulture about Monday’s two-hour season-three premiere, playing an antihero, and Footloose. So we get to see you dance in the season-three premiere.   I do dance a little! It’s true. When I saw that, I was like, “What exactly do they have in mind? I hope this isn’t turning into the angry warehouse dance.” That would definitely jump the shark. But it would be entertaining. Like when you pulled out that old number for Fallon last year.Yeah, the fan reaction to that was amazing. It got 17 million hits or something like that. Can you believe that it has so much staying power? »

The Following Boss on the Return of That Fan-Favorite Terrifying-Yet-Brilliant Villain

2 March 2015 7:00 PM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

If Mark (Sam Underwood), one of the two terrifying twins from last season of The Following, wasn't crazy before, he's certainly gone off the deep end now. The sole surviving psycho twin has been laying low for six months on Fox's serial killer thriller, waiting to put his revenge plan into play on Ryan Hardy (Kevin Bacon), Mike Weston (Shawn Ashmore) and Max Hardy (Jessica Stroup) for killing his mother Lily (Connie Nielsen) last season. And while he definitely had some issues before, losing his more confident better half has left him a total mess. Now he's having full conversations with his dead brother Luke, allowing "Luke" to take over his own body and take control of the situation when »

The Following Season Premiere Recap: Wait, Who Was Driving That Car?

2 March 2015 6:59 PM, PST | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Kevin Bacon spends most of the first eight minutes of The Following‘s Season 3 premiere smiling. This is notable, because it’s the longest stretch we’ve seen the eternally tortured Ryan Hardy happy in the series to date.

And given what happens in rest of the hour, it’s likely the last time we’ll see him this way for quite a while.

What new ways have the depraved minds of the world found to torment Bacon’s beat-down alter ego? What threat lurks now that Joe Carroll is — for the moment, at least — locked away in a federal prison? »

The Following Season 3 Review

2 March 2015 6:50 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

This review is based on the first two episodes of season three, which were provided to us for review purposes prior to broadcast.

“It’s happening again, isn’t it?” asks a character of Kevin Bacon’s Ryan Hardy towards the end of The Following‘s third season premiere. The “Well, duh” isn’t explicitly stated within the show, but no doubt you’ll provide your own. Taking place a full year after the events of season two, the show picks up at Agent Mendez’s wedding, where we discover Mike and Max have separated and Ryan has a new girlfriend. Then someone mentions Joe Carroll’s imminent execution, a mysteriously ominous caterer makes a move, and The Following is back to its darkly cynical slice of confusingly watchable schlock TV. Those expecting a massive reset this season will be in for a torture warehouse-size disappointment, but anyone totally game »

Kevin Bacon finds himself in a killer’s crosshairs when “The Following” returns for its Season 3 debut on Monday.

Since we saw them last, Ryan’s niece Max Hardy (Jessica Stroup), formerly a detective with the NYPD, joined the FBI and is no longer dating Agent Mike Weston (Shawn Ashmore).

In the Age of Auteur Television, What Does It Mean to Be a Director?

2 March 2015 8:54 AM, PST | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

The role of the director in television has, historically, always come second to the writer. In the words of Marcos Siega, director/executive producer of "The Following," there's a perception of them as "traffic cops." But in an era when television keeps getting better and better, there's a shift in that perspective, especially thanks to the influx of A-list directors like David Fincher and Steven Soderbergh.   Siega comes from the other side, having worked for over 10 years on shows including "Dexter" and "The Vampire Diaries," but he doesn't mind it when the feature guys come to play. At this year's ATVfest, Indiewire sat down with him to discuss what it can mean to be an "executive producer," what he feels he does as the lead director of a show and the valuable lessons he learned from being a guest director on "Veronica Mars." Talk to me a little bit about »

"The Following" returns for Season 3 on Monday night and Ryan Hardy and Mike Weston are (at least, temporarily) free from Joe Carroll-related troubles.

"We jump forward about a year, which is the same thing that happened between Season 1 and Season 2, and I think it's kind of nice because it gives our characters sort of a year to settle into the events that have happened and we can pick up and sort of start fresh in a certain way," Shawn Ashmore, who plays Mike, told Access Hollywood.
