Fox Cancels Sleepy Hollow
While Fox was busy canceling the longstanding catastrophe known as Sleepy Hollow, its former leading lady, actress Nicole Beharie, was spotted out shaking her groove thang at Naturi Naughton’s baby shower. As I’m sure you’ve all heard by now, Fox finally took out the trash, canceling the sci-fi drama just one season after it unceremoniously killed off the national treasure we all know as Grace Abigail Mills.
Sleepy Hollow and its Ichabbie hugs- they have practically become the stuff of legends. It was the Ichabbie hug in Sin Eater that first grabbed my attention and eventually led to me becoming the filthy shipper trash I am today.
Follow-up hugs in Bad Blood and This is War would go on to become just as addicting among Ichabbie fans, so much so writers and producers of the show have actively begun shipper baiting fans using the hugs for ratings.
I wish I could get excited by these new Sleepy Hollow season 3 promo pics execs released to fans over the weekend, but I cannot.
How can I? Have you guys seen the promo images for Empire’s season two? If not, check here, here and here. Fox’s hit sophomore drama is slaying souls in support of their new season, while Sleepy execs are busy releasing the worst cropped promo images I have ever seen.
Sleepy Hollow has announced its first big decision concerning season three and it is one that is sure to doom this already struggling show to the eternal flames of cancellation hell.
Nicole Beharie and Sleepy Hollow go Head-to-Head with Kerry Washington and Scandal
A 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.
Empire stars Taraji P. Henson and Terrence Howard are covering the latest issue of Emmy magazine. Just as they did last year with Nicole Beharie and Tom Mison from Sleepy Hollow, Fox has submitted the pair for consideration in this year’s Emmy race for Best Male and Female lead in a drama series.
Emmy consideration is nothing new to Taraji who scored a nod for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Miniseries or Movie back in 2011 for her Lifetime film Taken from Me: The Tiffany Rubin Story. Howard on the other hand says an Emmy nod for anyone affiliated with the show, or the show in general, would be “Icing on the cake of an already amazing television experience.”
Rise n’ shine Sleepyheads, we’ve got some great news for ya. Sleepy Hollow’s new pared down cast of Nicole Beharie, Tom Mison and Lyndie Greenwood are all set to appear at this year’s San Diego Comic Con.
If that’s not enough to get your heart racing, we hear fans in attendance will get a sneak peak at what we can expect to see in season three.
Quiet as kept, the actors have been taping the upcoming season since mid-May and writers are now starting to give small glimpses into where things may be headed when the show returns to Fox’s line-up this fall.
