Last October, FOX renewed Sleepy Hollow for a second season. It was the first season renewal of the 2013-14 season.
At the time, word was that the supernatural drama had been renewed for 13 episodes but FOX might be open to ordering more once they saw the ratings for the first few episodes of the new season.
Now, EW reports that there will be at least 15 episodes and the producers are preparing for as many as 18 installments if the network decides they want more.
Executive producer Mark Goffman says, “We look at this series as epic and every episode as needing to be epic… Every episode needs to be an adventure, and something mind blowing has to happen to our characters, with major revelations that move the story forward. We still approach it with that in mind. The more episodes you do, the harder that becomes, but I feel we are still at level where we can maintain that pace.”
Sleepy Hollow revolves around a transplant from 1790 and a modern sheriff who try to stop the Headless Horseman and other supernatural threats. The cast includes Tom Mison, Nicole Beharie, Orlando Jones, Katia Winter, Clancy Brown, John Cho, and Richard Cetrone.
What do you think? Are you looking forward to season two? Do you prefer fewer episodes in a season or more, if that means the writers have to stretch the storylines?
