Just three episodes in to Fox’s new hit series Sleepy Hollow, and the network is already clamoring for more. According to a USA Today report, the network has already renewed the series for Season 2.
The renewal will be for 13 episodes.
The series follows recently resurrected Ichabod Crane, played by Tom Mison, and modern-day police lieutenant Abbie Mills, played by 42’s Nicole Beharie, as they attempt to save the residents of the small village of Sleepy Hollow from the mysterious forces that threaten their small town life.
In the season’s premiere episode we learned that Ichabod Crane served as an American spy under the command of General George Washington during the Revolutionary War.
Having fallen in combat, after beheading a Hessian soldier, a spell was put on him by his wife Katrina, who unbeknownst to him was a witch.
After 250 years had passed, Ichabod awakens in a dark cave with George Washington’s bible by his side.
As can be expected, the people in Sleepy Hollow were hesitant to believe his claim that he is actually from 2 and a half centuries before.
The one person to believe him was Lt. Abigail “Abbie” Mills.
Abbie had witnessed her partner, Sheriff August Corbin, beheaded by what seemed to be a headless horseman. Of course, no one in the department believed her either, especially not her captain, Frank Irving,
The series has performed well in the ratings in all demographics. It’s no surprise as it is the show creator’s intention to treat every episode as if it were a feature film.
In the next episode, entitled ‘Obscura’, Ichabod and Abbie must search for her sister Jenny, who recently escaped from a locked down psychiatric facility.
Sleepy Hollow airs Monday nights at 9:00 p.m. on Fox.
