When The Following returns Monday, Jan. 20, expect a major time jump between seasons. "We will jump forward a year with our surviving characters," creator Kevin Williamson said at Comic-Con, adding that the story moves away from the FBI and will be more "character-driven."

Repped by Gersh and Industry Entertainment, Tergesen starred as Tobias Beecher on HBO's Oz. Other TV credits include gigs on Longmire, Army Wives, Copper, Red Widow, Generation Kill and The Big C.
