The Following. 2013.

The Following is an American television drama that is airing on Fox during the 2012-2013 television season. The creator and executive producer of the series is Kevin Williamson.
First episode: January 21, 2013
Network: Fox Broadcasting Company
Program creator: Kevin Williamson
Starring: Kevin Bacon, James Purefoy and Shawn Ashmore

A brilliant and charismatic, yet psychotic serial killer communicates with other active serial killers and activates a cult of believers following his every command.

The Edgar Allen Poe obsessed cultist killers are back and FBI agent Ryan Hardy is hot on their trail. The alcoholic ex agent and his team , hunt down a pyromaniac killer who is acting out on behalf of Joe Carroll. The history and present of lives of some of the killers are explored; while the history between Joe and Ryan is examined in a series of flashbacks. I found this episode to be a little rough around the edges, while a change up in characters from the first episode showed that the series is experiencing some first season growing pains. A nice twist (most could have guessed it) rounded out the episode and I am hoping The Following will level out as a series, it shows promise.
