Fox has found its villain for the third season of The Following. The first season of the Kevin Bacon lead thriller focused on serial killer Joe Carroll (James Purefoy) with the second season expanding out from there but still involving Carroll. In the third season Ryan Hardy (Bacon) will have a new adversary being played by Michael Ealy.
This is Ealy's return to Fox after the cancellation of the critically acclaimed Almost Human where he played Dorian a combat android (a DRN model police synthetic) paired with detective John Kennex (Karl Urban). The series only ran one season.
