Fox has canceled Kevin Bacon-led serial killer drama “The Following” after three seasons, TheWrap has learned.

The show follows Bacon as Ryan Hardy, an investigator hot on the heels of serial killers. The first two seasons had Hardy chasing James Purefoy’s Joe Carroll, while Season 3 saw the introduction of Michael Ealy as the new big bad.

After Season 2, show writers Brett Mahoney and Alexi Hawley and director Marcos Siega were elevated to co-showrunners under the supervision of series creator Kevin Williamson.

Mahoney and Hawley were also bumped up to executive producers.
