Sleepy Hollow, a modern day retelling of the Headless Horseman tale, has been a huge hit for Fox, especially on DVR where it has been viewed by an additional twenty-three million viewers since it debuted last month.
Despite not ordering a full thirteen episodes for season one, Fox so believes in the long term hit potential of Sleepy Hollow that they have ordered a full twenty-two episodes for season two.
This is great news for Beharie, who in a recent interview credited her first primetime role to the breakthroughs recently made my actresses Kerry Washington (Scandal) and Taraji P. Henson (Person of Interest)
Sleepy Hollow airs Monday nights on Fox at 10pm EST.
If you haven’t watched yet, do tune in, if for no other reason than to support Nicole. Aside from Kerry, no other show on network television has a black female as the LEAD character.
