The supernatural drama debuts its fourth season on January 6th after killing off one of its main characters at the end of season three. The cast includes Tom Mison, Janina Gavankar, Lyndie Greenwood, Jerry MacKinnon, Rachel Melvin, Oona Yaffe, Jeremy Davies, and John Noble.
At this week’s Television Critics Association press tour, Newman said he hopes the revamped version of the show will pick up more viewers:
We lost one of the core characters this year which required a real reset and it isn’t unexpected that some of the audience would have peeled off. But our hope is that with a really compelling storyline that they pitched to us that may bring people back to it. With a Friday night show, we expect a greater amount of delayed viewing than what you get on other nights of the week, and we thought there was an opportunity for word of mouth to build that show and over the course of the season to see delayed viewing bring that number up.”
Despite the show’s tough timeslot, he says FOX still loves the series:
Bringing a show out on Friday night is tough. We love the show, we think the storytelling has always been incredibly inventive, Art Ichabod is fantastic.”
