Three people have stepped in to take up the series...
The Following has made a change of captains early in its work on season three. Deadline reports that Jennifer Johnson (Lost), who signed on to run the show in June, has exited and will be replaced by show writers Brett Mahoney and Alexi Hawley, along with on-set executive producer Marcos Siega. The move is said to be an amicable one and Johnson remains on staff at WB TV, where she is well-liked. The decision was made in order to fit the show's creative reins better, with those familiar with the series keeping hold on it.
The show, which stars Kevin Bacon, is still in the writing stages and thus production will not be affected.
