The horror thriller will star Kevin Bacon as Ryan Hardy, a retired FBI profiler who returns to pursue his old nemesis, serial killer Joe Carroll (James Purefoy).
Alcatraz actress Goossen played FBI agent Jennifer Mason in the show's pilot, but the role will be reworked for series.
Producers are now seeking an old actress for the part of Mason, according to Deadline.
Actors still attached to The Following include Maggie Grace (Lost), Natalie Zea (Justified) and Shawn Ashmore (X-Men).
The series will air on Mondays at midseason, replacing fall drama The Mob Doctor.
