Fox’s The Following season two ended with Joe Carroll (James Purefoy) in custody and his followers either dead or on the run, but in season three FBI Agent Ryan Hardy (Kevin Bacon) will find out putting Carroll away wasn’t the end of the madness. Luke Gray is dead but his psychotic twin brother Mark (Sam Underwood) is still on the loose, and during an interview prior to season three Bacon promised this new season will feature some intense new villains in addition to the return of Mark Gray.

Fox brought The Following cast members to the 2014 San Diego Comic Con and Underwood teamed up with Jessica Stroup who plays Ryan Hardy’s sister, Max, to talk about what fans of the series can expect from season three.

Watch the interview:

Season Three Plot: Season Three begins one year later: Joe Carroll is awaiting execution on death row, and Ryan Hardy has moved on. Turning the page hasn’t been easy – the off-the-books investigation that led to Joe’s capture put Ryan and his team under fire. But Ryan has risen above the controversy, returning full-time to the FBI, alongside Mike Weston (Shawn Ashmore) and Ryan’s niece, Max Hardy; and finding a pure relationship with Gwen (Zuleikha Robinson). But his happiness is shattered when a new threat arises – one that will tear open old wounds and expose the sins of the past – forcing Ryan and his team to unravel a twisted web of violence before it destroys them all – while leading them to face a terrifying truth: Joe Carroll was just the beginning.

The Following season three kicked off on March 2, 2015 and airs on Monday nights at 9pm ET/PT.
