"To all the fans abroad and late watchers I'm truly sorry I retweeted a spoiler. I just wasn't thinking. Won't happen again. #MyBad," he said on Twitter the following morning.

He also posted a selfie Vine video of himself saying it, while wearing a pair of sunglasses.

"My bad, my bad, my bad," he said.

"The Following" creator Kevin Williamson did not comment about the matter but he did give a shoutout to some overseas viewers on his own Twitter page.

"Thank you for watching Australia," he said. "Hope you enjoyed the premiere! @TheFollowingFOX."
