Need a refresher on the first season of The Following before the show returns Jan. 19? You’re in luck.

The faux-news-magazine videos you see below are the first two installments of a six-part video series produced by Fox that re-tell the saga of famed serial killer Joe Carroll (James Purefoy). Future installments of the videos will be presented exclusively here on EW in the coming weeks before they debut on an upcoming revamped version of the show’s e-book, out Dec. 16.

Check them out below and resist the urge to look up old episodes of A Current Affair.

The Following returns to Fox with a two-night premiere event Jan. 19 and concludes in its normal Monday time slot Jan. 20, following the season finale of Sleepy Hollow.
