(NEW YORK) -- Kevin Bacon's first-ever primetime TV series debuts Monday night on Fox.
In The Following, Bacon plays a former FBI agent, Ryan Hardy, who acts as a consultant on a case involving a serial killer whom he captured a decade ago and has escaped from death row.
The killer, played by James Purefoy, is now on the loose and plans to kill a woman whom he'd targeted before he was put behind bars. He develops a cult, or a following, in order to carry out those plans.
The Following airs at 9 p.m. Eastern time on Fox.
