FOX is headed back to the Hollow. Today, the network announced they’ve renewed Sleepy Hollow for a fourth season.
The supernatural series follows Ichabod Crane (Tom Mison), a Revolutionary War hero who comes back to life after more than two centuries only to find himself solving mysteries with police lieutenant Abbie Mills (Nicole Beharie). Lyndie Greenwood, Shannyn Sossamon, and Nikki Reed also star.
The renewal is somewhat surprising, considering [SPOILER AHEAD] season three ended with the death of the series’ co-lead, Abbie Mills. Fans were outraged. However, the show’s executive producers have apparently already made plans for the future.
Additionally, ratings for season three dropped significantly for the drama. The season averaged only an .83 rating in the 18-49 demo and 3.065 million viewers. For comparison, season two averaged 1.55 in the 18-49 demo, with a total of 4.57 million viewers.
SLEEPY HOLLOW returns for a groundbreaking fourth season full of supernatural creatures, inexplicable events and the search for the truth about the lives of Witnesses. SLEEPY HOLLOW stars Tom Mison as Ichabod Crane, Lyndie Greenwood as Jenny Mills, Lance Gross as Daniel Reynolds and Jessica Camacho as Sophie Foster.”
What do you think? Are you a fan of Sleepy Hollow? Will you watch season four without Abbie?
