The Following – was premiered on Fox on 21st January 2013 and it explores the quest of ex FBI agent Ryan Hardy to catch Joe Carroll and his cult. Joe was a professor and is expert in manipulating minds of people. Eventually he became a serial killer and created a group of people brainwashed (or we can say manipulated) by him to assist him. He was caught by Ryan Hardy and was in prison.

Does that solve the problem? No! He was in, but his disciples were out and were doing their job religiously in absence of Carroll. And amongst them there were some of the people whom he met in prison itself.

Hardy discovered that Carroll got his own son Joey Matthews kidnapped by his cult! He might be cooking something more than it is seen, in his mind. Why he did so? The other main characters are Carroll’s wife, one (and only) survivor. Of course there are FBI agents, a group of killers and many more characters there.
