Fox is taking advantage of the networks’ traditional midseason hiatus with plans to roll out the first season of “The Following” across all digital and video-on-demand platforms, allowing viewers to catch up before the show returns in 2014, EW.com’s Inside TV reports.
The drama series, which stars Kevin Bacon, will be released in batches of four to five episodes each week starting Dec. 22, the story notes. The series will be available on Fox on Demand, Fox.com and FOX NOW, the piece adds.
“If that’s not enough television for you, there will also be more than 100 episodes available of both new and returning series,” including old and returning shows such as “Almost Human,” “American Dad” and “Sleepy Hollow,” the story notes. “All new series will be fully unlocked and available to view on all platforms, while returning series will require credentials from participating video providers to view on FOX NOW.”
The second-season premiere of "The Following" is scheduled for Monday, Jan. 27.
