Many remember gay showrunner Kevin Williamson from his iconic 90s show Dawson’s Creek. Williamson also created the Scream and I Know What You Did Last Summer thriller film series and the CW’s supernatural series The Secret Circle and The Vampire Diaries. The second season of his newest series on FOX, The Following, which has received major critical acclaim, began last week. Williamson, 48, has said he knew he was gay "as far back as [he] can remember," but officially came out to his family and friends in 1992. The Following is rife with homoerotic content and is a superb thriller that is must watch TV and prime for binge-watching. On FOX Mondays at 9pm EST.

The Following charts the quest of a former FBI agent, Ryan Hardy (Kevin Bacon, who is terrific in the role) trying to catch a serial killer–who tried to kill him once before–with a murderous cult that revolves around the work of Edgar Allan Poe.
