..The Following season 4.
The Kevin Bacon fronted thriller has seen viewing figures fall by half over three seasons, so is it doing enough for Fox to renew this nail-biting series.

With such a high profile star like Kevin Bacon,picking up a role in a TV series it’s no wonder that Fox are keen to keep such a hot property on the books.  But it always comes down to advertising revenue and if people are not tuning in then advertisers wont spend.

Fox already have a slate of programs that are set to air over the 2015 – 2016 season ( see them here), so it may look to chop some of it’s under performing series with the The Following hovering around this area.

Its first series premiered to over 10 million viewers in the US, due to the way the first series pulled in viewers with its constant twist and turns the second season premiered to over 11 million but fell to 4.81 million for its final episode.   It seems that the second season did not grab audiences quite like the first as season 3 only saw it being premiered to 4.88 million.

The series that focus on Bacon’s character Ryan Hardy, as he goes on the hunt for psychotic serial killers, seems to have now retained it loyal fans and lost the rest.

At present the only thing that seems to be going for the series is the fact its has an international fan base, this wont necessarily guarantee its renewal though.

So will there be a season 4 of The Following, only time will tell and as  some who loves to watch it I hope so, but I wont be holding my breath.

*Update* Since writing Fox have decided to cancel The Following.
