The wait is finally over. After months of speculation and waiting, the time has come to get your final fix of The Following and even better, you can do that over the Christmas holiday season.
Excluded from our preview of December 2015 releases, The Following was almost certainly a last minute arrangement between Fox and Netflix. We predicted earlier in the year that it’d be coming during the fall. However, because the series won’t be showing a new series the release date was even more uncertain.
Why? Because of the strategy that most content providers use with their content on Netflix. 9 times out of 10, a network or content creator will release its previous years content just before the new season out to serve as a promotion tool. With The Following now being over they’re not obliged to do the same.
The short lived FOX series starred Kevin Bacon, an ex-FBI agent who reprises his role as a detective after a string of murders carried out by a convict of which he put away. It’s a gripping series that sadly was cancelled due to low-air ratings.
So after a lot of waiting and having to do a bit of digging in the Netflix library ourselves we’ve found out the official release date for season 3 of The Following on Netflix. All 15 episodes of The Following season 3 will join Netflix on December 30th, 2015.
