FOX recently moved the supernatural series to Friday nights.
Speaking to TVInsider, Campbell said the new episodes will address where Abbie went and what’s going on:
A lot of that will be explained; a lot of where she went and what happened, and why that decision was so important to her will be explained. It obviously reflects a great deal on Ichabod Crane and to a no lesser extent, Jenny and Joe, our new team. They’re fighting something in the supernatural with Pandora and the Hidden One that they don’t understand, and the rules aren’t quite what they were with Moloch, which was just utter destruction. There’s a plan afoot [with Pandora and the Hidden One]. There’s the rise of a once-powerful old god, and [the team] finds themselves in over their heads, and they’re trying to do everything they can to not only survive, but to try and put an end to them. The first few episodes answers a lot of questions [and] it asks a lot of questions that will be answered over the back half [of the season]. And a lot of relationships that have started to develop in the first half will be very necessary for teaming together if they’re all going to fight and put this threat to bed.”
Campbell also mentioned that he’s very excited for the villains in the second half of season three:
I think The Hidden One and Pandora are very interesting Big Bads. They’ve got the remnants of an old universe, but at the end of the day, they have a very human storyline that we can all relate to. We’re excited to see how that unfolds, and how someone with that much power can have such big problems…these two people have to grapple with earthly concerns to make their plans unfold. I like the way it reflects on relationships we have embedded in the series: Crane with Jenny, Crane with Joe, Crane with Abbie, Crane with everybody. It’s a nice reflection, and not one I think you would expect from a show like this. There’s no shortage of scare, there’s no shortage of demons coming to Sleepy Hollow, but underneath that is a nice relationship story we think is pretty unique.”
Season three of Sleepy Hollow returns on February 5th, at 8 p.m. on FOX.
