The Following's new showrunner has departed before the new season even begins.
Johnson, who attended the show's Comic-Con panel in late July, will instead focus on developing new projects under her deal with Warner Bros. TV, the studio behind The Following. A trio of executive producers — Marcos Siega, Brett Mahoney and Alexi Hawley — will take over the day-to-day duties.
Johnson's other credits include Lost, Cold Case and Gang Related.
The Following returns midseason on Fox.
