Golden Globe winner and Emmy® nominee Kevin Bacon and UK's James Purefoy (Rome) star in this hit psychological thriller from Kevin Williamson (The Vampire Diaries, Scream). Heading into its intense, spellbinding second season, the show catches up with a healthy and healed Ryan Hardy (Kevin Bacon) a year after the tragic events of last season. Following a horrific new murder spree, the FBI calls on Ryan and Mike Weston (Shawn Ashmore) to speak with the lone survivor, Lily Gray (Connie Nielsen), in order to help them solve the case. Having worked tirelessly to rehabilitate his life, Ryan is reluctant to re-engage with the FBI. Instead, he proceeds with his own investigation behind closed doors, and finds a valuable ally in his niece, Max Hardy (Jessica Stroup), an NYPD cop working in the Intel Division. Throughout the season, Ryan will cross paths with several complicated individuals, including Mandy Lang (Tiffany Boone) and the enigmatic Luke (Sam Underwood), which furthers his suspicion that Joe Carroll's (James Purefoy) reign of terror is far from over.

If you recall adverts for products such as the VW Golf that claim that the new version tops the older model, then this could be said of Season 2 of The Following in my opinion.
Serial killer Joe Carroll is still alive and kicking and is motivating groups of would-be killers to perform acts of outrage often with the aim of taking revenge against Ryan Hardy for originally capturing him and 'stealing' his ex-wife.
James Purefoy and Kevin Bacon continue their central roles respectively and are again the backbone of the 2nd season;as previously whatever faults there were in season 1 were overshadowed by their commanding performances,and this season gives them more depth as the story progresses.
Connie Nielsen (of Gladiator (2000) - Two Disc Set [DVD] fame)is the new love interest in Bacons life as he tries to settle into his new life away from the FBI,but never far away are the machinations of Purefoy's serial killer and his following.
It's more of the same,with some of the solid characters of the previous season giving equally pertinent support.
If you found season 1 bland and silly don't bother;some people did.There is more of the same here,with 'followers' comming out of the woodwork when you least expect it which to me added to the plot.
In conclusion I think this is an excellent follow up and adds to the 1st season if you are desperate for more.

Suspension of disbelief is vital to this series as if it is possible that you believe the characters would make these hairbrained decisions you might just be riveted. However FBI agents and policemen are rarely this daft in real life and the program ends up laughable and contemptible. The poorest decision was to make another series.

The Wire, The Sopranos, Breaking Bad, House of Cards, Deadwood, Mad Men. I could go on as apparently we are now living in a golden age of television with some of the greatest tv shows ever made according to critics and audiences alike made in the last 15 years. But I have not completed a single box set. Why, you may ask? Because I’m watching finely made productions such as The Following Season 2. A show so bad that it cannot be described as ‘so bad it’s good’ but ‘so bad it’s magnificent’. Never once while watching this season did I think, I really should get round to watching The Wire because while The Following might be terrible in the plot, believability and common sense department it sure is entertaining.

I will try and keep the spoilers to a minimum as a show this magnificent relies on its shock value and ability to thrill; it’s even described as a psychological thriller. Starting off 18 months after Joe died (he didn’t die); Clare died and Ryan Hardy almost died The Following quickly gets off the ground with a subway attack by ‘Joe’s followers’ (unlike last season where each follower had to be recruited by Roderick or at least met Joe personally these followers are freelance followers with no particular affiliation to the previous followers) that brings Joe out of retirement and leads to him shaving an amazing beard. So right away the show decides that last season’s pathetic attempt at creating plausibility should be completely ignored (this will help when Joe meets his cult).

The Following is cotton candy for the mind. If you want to watch a show that doesn’t get too overly caught up with plausibility and credibility then this is for you (loved how the van that rammed a car in the final episode is perfectly fine in the next scene).

I felt this season started off pretty slowly. There was a lot of figuring out who's who and in what capacity they're relevant etc (felt a bit 'Criminal Minds' in places). But as the season progressed, and it all started to come together, it became unmissable. Joe, while displaying a more humane side than in season one, is still at his manipulative best as he looks to rebuild his fallen empire (so to speak) with a new breed of followers more sinister than the last.

This series has so many twists, turns and memorable performances (Luke and Mark add that something extra that season one didn't have), and the final episode only served to fuel my anticipation for season 3. Looking forward to it!!
