Kevin Williamson is moving on...
The Following is losing its showrunner. Deadline reports that Kevin Williamson, who created the show and has guided it since its premiere, is stepping away as showrunner and handing the reins on to Jennifer Johnson (Cold Case, Lost). The site reports that Williamson will remain "very involved" with the show; he is moving on to work on his new CBS drama Stalker which premieres this fall.
Williamson did the same with The Vampire Diaries, handing that show over to Julie Plec when he created The Following. The show will make its return at the midseason on Fox.
