“The Following” just added another new face for Season 2 … and it’s only going to make life harder for Agent Ryan Hardy (Kevin Bacon).

FOX’s serial killer thriller has cast “Oz” alum Lee Tergesen as a guest star, The Hollywood Reporter reports.

Appearing in episode 7 of the upcoming Season 2, Tergesen will portray Kurt Bolen, described as a normal family man who Ryan Hardy suspects may harbor a dark secret.

Season 2 of “The Following” is going to have a major time jump, as executive producer Kevin Williamson revealed the show will pick up one year later, and life certainly won’t be easy for Ryan Hardy. While Joe Carroll (James Purefoy) is presumed dead, Purefoy will be back for Season 2 … though whether he will be alive or in flashbacks is still unclear. Check out the bloody Season 2 poster art here.

“The Following” returns Monday, Jan. 20, at 9 p.m. ET on FOX.
