It would be too easy to make some kind of breakfast based pun about 'cereal' killers and , so I'm not going to bother. Especially because his new upcoming serial killer chasing TV series, The Following, is starting to look pretty darn tasty.

Bacon has made the jump to the small screen to play a former FBI agent, Ryan Hardy, who has to be re-recruited in order to track down an escaped serial killer. However, there's a twist. This murderous madman establishes a kind of serial killer apprenticeship program in order to spread his tyranny even further. Check out a 3 minute promo, and the official synopsis below!

The FBI estimates there are currently up to 300 active serial killers in the United States. What would happen if these killers had a way of communicating and connecting with each other? What if they were able to work together and form alliances as they left a trail of blood across the country? What if one brilliant and charismatic, yet psychotic serial killer was able to bring them all together and activate a cult of believers following his every command?

You don't have long until you can chow down on some Bacon. The Following will premiere on January 21 at 9/8c on FOX. Want to be kept updated with all the latest news? Well, make sure you give the [[follow]] button a whack to start following The Following.
