Unfortunately, the television series “The Following” can no longer boast of the high rating and the number of its fans has fallen to almost 3 million people. Last year the executive producer Alexi Hawley was talking about his plans for Season 4, but the new episodes would be financed only if the show kept its popularity.
The renewal of Kevin Williamson’s the second television series “Stalker” is now also open to question and the predictions of experts aren’t very positive. According to unofficial data, both shows can move to another TV channels in case of closing, and Hulu as well as TNT are on the list, wishing to acquire the rights.
In Fox’s recent announcement the last two episodes of Season 3 of “The Following” show were suggested to be “the final of the television series“, but soon the given information was followed by the statement that it was a mistake and in fact Fox meant “the final of the season”.
Was it a mistake or “an accidental truth”? Will the show be renewed for Season 4?
