UPDATE 5:34pm – FOX has just announced that Backstrom has also been cancelled.
Well, it looks like the Ryan Hardy and Joe Carroll saga is once and for all coming to a conclusion.
According to TVWise, FOX has decided to cancel the Kevin Bacon led series The Following after three seasons. The finale that will air on May 18th will serve as the series finale.
An immediate hit right out of the gate for FOX in its first season, the series saw a steady decline in viewers over the next two seasons. There were also rumblings from fans and critics alike that the show was too violent.
