UPDATE: Fox claim that a mistake was made in the labelling of the May 18 finale, which should have read “season” and not “series” finale. Networks rarely acknowledge cancellations, so it still remains to be seen whether the cat was accidentally let out of the bag, or a genuine mistake was made. Stay tuned for updates. Original story follows below.
Fox has gently cancelled The Following after three seasons, according to the show’s marketing material.
The network has described the upcoming May 18 Season 3 finale as the “series finale”. Allowing room for human error, this would confirm that the Kevin Bacon serial killer drama will not move forward into Season 4:
