Jennifer Johnson has exited as showrunner of Fox drama “The Following” after just three months at the helm.
The drama vet took over the reins of the Warner Bros. TV show from creator Kevin Williamson in June, but her sensibilities proved to be a bad fit with the intense thriller. With Johnson’s departure, supervising producers Brett Mahoney and Alexi Hawley are being upped to exec producer and co-showrunner status with helmer Marcos Siega.
Johnson will continue to focus on development through her overall deal with Warner Bros. TV. Deadline first reported the news of her departure.
