A Revamped Sleepy Hollow Moves to Thursday Nights+ Premieres October 1st

Nicole Beharie and Sleepy Hollow go Head-to-Head with Kerry Washington and Scandal

SLEEPY HOLLOW SESON 3 DEBUTS OCTOBER 1STA newly slimmed down Sleepy Hollow (over half of season two’s cast is now gone) is set to return for its third season on October 1, according to a press release issued by Fox earlier today.

The show will relinquish its 9pm Monday night time slot to newbie sci-fi drama Minority Report, and will instead take up residence on Thursday nights at 9pm, right behind longtime crime drama Bones and opposite ABC’s political drama Scandal.

Sleepy Hollow stars Nicole Beharie (Abbie Mills), Tom Mison (Ichabod Crane) and Lyndie Greenwood, who found herself upgraded when Katia Winter (Katrina Crane) and John Noble (Henry Parrish/Jeremy Crane/Horseman of War) had their characters killed off and actor/comedian Orlando Jones (Capt. Frank Irving) decided not to return.

The newly minted team of Mills, Crane and Mills will be answering fans’ questions and previewing the upcoming season when they appear at this year’s San Diego Comic Con which takes place July 9-12.

Fox press release:
SLEEPY HOLLOW picks up after a disquieting break in the demonic action, as our heroes – ICHABOD CRANE (Tom Mison) and ABBIE MILLS (Nicole Beharie) – adjust to a world seemingly without Moloch, witchy wives, evil sons and headless ex-best friends. However, nothing is ever quite as it seems, and the eerie calm will quickly give way to the next tribulation, driven by a surprising supernatural presence that will challenge Crane and Mills in ways they never imagined.


  1. Sleepy Hollow has three episodes to convince me to watch them live over Scandal or nothing at all. They used up a lot credit with me during season two. I still can’t believe I endured 18 episodes of that crap. I see they brought in two new writers, including a black woman and man, and a new show runner. I hope that helps cause Mark Goffman and his crew of writers damn near alienated EVERY portion of the fandom.

  2. Nothing has hurt Sleepy Hollow more than being off the air for nine months. My goodness, that’s just shy of a year. People have short memories and Sleepy Hollow has never been so good that people keep coming back automatically. It needs either more episodes or shorter downtime. The Good Wife has 22,24 episodes a season and is off air at best 3 or 4 months. Fox’s short seasons hurt all their shows.
