Bell Media hopes for a ‘Following’ to Bravo

Why the media co is moving the next season of The Following from CTV to the specialty channel.

After two seasons on CTV, Bell Media is moving Kevin Bacon’s crime drama The Following to Bravo when new episodes bow next Monday.

Viewership for the second season of the show on CTV dipped from 1.7 million average viewers in the first season to 1.3 million in the second.

Tracey Pearce, SVP of specialty and pay at Bell Media, says Bravo is a “perfect fit” for The Following because it aligns well with the other serialized dramas on the channel, such as 19-2, Criminal Minds and Homeland. 

Season three of The Following starts Monday March 2 at 9 p.m. on Bravo.
