Last night I read on Entertainment Weekly that my most favourite series, The Following is cancelled.
I couldn’t believe my eyes, so I decided to sleep on it… Maybe it was a really bad joke or a dream. The problem is, that it is not a joke as now there are several sources reporting this.
What really bothers me is how on the verified Facebook page, no one has declared this and we have no explanation. They keep promoting the next episode as if there’s no cancellation. What is this madness?
I know that what Fox cares about is their income, and the amount of viewers they get out of every episode. But don’t we deserve to know what has happened? And why kill Joe? Wasn’t it a little bit obvious that this character was close to our hearts and he brought a lot of viewers to the series? You don’t have to work in marketing to know this… No other character on the series has a twisted mind (and an accent) like he does. Nothing compares to him!
So here I am, admitting defeat. Yet another series which will stop abruptly, even when it had so much promise, and darkness to last for a couple more years! The question now is… shall I just boycott Fox? Shall I hope the series get picked up by another TV channel? Or shall I just hope that Ryan Hardy and Joe Carroll get another series?
