Watch Kevin Bacon chase a cult of killers in an extended "The Following" trailer

05.15.2012by: Eric Walkuski

Yesterday we passed along some promo images from Fox's new TV thriller "The Following", which jumps from the mind of Kevin Williamson, and now we've got a trailer for the series. Said trailer runs nearly four minutes long, so consider it a very decent-sized sampling of what we can expect from the show - we probably won't get a whole lot more until the fall.

Starring Kevin Bacon, James Purefoy, Shawn Ashmore, Natalie Zea and Maggie Grace, "The Following" centers on a diabolical serial killer who uses technology to create a cult of serial killers, and the FBI agent who finds himself in the middle of it.

Based on the trailer, the show contains a bevy of familiar tropes and ideas (indeed, even the opening sequence looks a bit reminiscent of Williamson's SCREAM films), but there's potential here for something a little different as far as primetime television goes. Not sure how I feel about that clunker of a "twist" in the very last scene, however. This could venture into soap opera territory with revelations like that...

Extra Tidbit: What do you think? Does "The Following" have what it takes to be the next big genre TV series? Or does it look too derivative?
