The fate of Sleepy Hollow is no longer uncertain. Today, it was revealed that FOX has cancelled the TV show so there won’t be a fifth season.
The supernatural drama stars Tom Mison as Ichabod Crane, a Revolutionary War patriot who wakes up more than 200 years after his death. The cast also includes Janina Gavankar, Lyndie Greenwood, Jerry MacKinnon, Rachel Melvin, Oona Yaffe, Jeremy Davies, and John Noble.
The FOX show’s cancellation doesn’t come as much of a surprise. Sleepy Hollow has struggled for a few seasons now and last season, the series alienated many fans by killing off a main character. Season four saw the consequences of that decision in its very low ratings. The fourth season, which ended in March, averaged a 0.50 rating in the 18-49 demo and only 1.92 million viewers, making it FOX’s lowest-rated series for the 2016-2017 season.
