Trivia: The Following
  • Actor Allusion: This isn't the first time a character played by Nico Tortorella was killed by his girlfriend.
  • Dueling Shows: With the CW's Cult, and also NBC's Hannibal.
  • Hey, It's That Guy!:
    • Iceman is an FBI agent. So is Sebastian Shaw.
    • Sorry, Kim, no Liam Neeson to save you this time.
    • Agent Parker was Kara Stanton in a previous life, and ADA Alexandra Borgia in another.
    • Angel Batista was Hardy's former partner.
    • Christopher Denham who plays the milita guy, has also played a character in "Sound Of My Voice" who is an investigative journalist who infiltrates a cult to make a documentary only to become a believer.
    • Dani Beck now runs an art gallery. And, ironically enough, a murder cult.
    • Sophie Girard is a serial killer.
    • Arlene Fowler is one of Joe Carroll's groupies.
    • Bodie is also a cult member.
  • I Knew It:
    • A lot of fans guessed that Carroll was still alive before they even showed him in the season two promos. They were right.
    • Likewise, many fans were proven correct when Claire turned up alive in the middle of Season 2.
  • Playing Against Type: Most of Kevin Williamson's previous works are teen-oriented fare, not super-dark murder mysteries.
  • Running Gag / Rule of Three: Meta-example with Annie Parisse (Agent Parker) since this is the third crime drama she was killed off of.
  • Too Soon: The first season got hit with this twice. The premier was pushed back after the Sandy Hook Shootings. And then the Boston Marathon Bombing caused the nearest-occurring episode to be put on at an irregular hour.
