After joining “The Following” in June as executive producer and showrunner, Jennifer Johnson has departed the series, Deadline has learned. In her place, creator Kevin Williamson has promoted two writers and another executive producer.
Brett Mahoney and Alex Hawley, along with on-set executive producer and director Marcos Siega, will run the show. Williamson expected to stay involved with the show while working day-to-day on “Stalker.”
The creator had hired Mahoney to go to “Stalker” with him, but the writer is now jumping back to “The Following.” The show is still in the writing phase, ahead of production for its midseason return.
