Bosses of the channel have also ordered brand new episodes of Raising Hope and The Mindy Project.

The second season of The Following, starring Kevin Bacon, will run for 15 episodes and is likely to return to Fox during the middle of next season.

On The Following, Fox’s chairman of entertainment, Kevin Reilly, said in a statement: “From the very beginning, we felt Kevin Williamson and Marcos Siega had created a high-quality, edge-of-your-seat drama that could break from the pack, and it is exciting to see the audience responding.

“Kevin Bacon and James Purefoy have given us two of the most compelling characters on television and the entire cast is incredible. I’m delighted to have this thrill ride continue on Fox for another season.”

    That’s great news about The Following since this new show is becoming a must-watch show for me on Monday nights! I work at DISH and several of my coworkers said that they were glad to see The Mindy Project also coming back for another season. I missed The Following on Monday, but caught up with it last night since it was recorded on my DISH Hopper. It’s great that I never need to worry about missing new episodes of The Following because my DVR automatically records Fox programs during primetime, and then I can watch it at my own pace.
