FOX’s Sleepy Hollow has a tall order to fill the hole left by Nicole Beharie’s Abbie Mills, so is a genre star up to the task? We’ll find out, as True Blood and Arrow star Janina Gavankar signs onto Season 4 as Ichabod’s new partner, Diana.
FOX’s one-time breakout hit Sleepy Hollow never quite regained its head after Season 1, but the Season 3 exit of leading star Nicole Beharie seemed like a killing blow for the occult thriller. Season 4 will continue the the ride, however, as Sleepy Hollow now sets a Scully-type co-anchor for Ichabod Crane to replace Abbie Mills, along with a flurry of overhauls.
Sleepy Hollow fandom found itself in an understandable uproar by the Season 3 finale seemingly killing off co-lead Abbie Mills (Nicole Beharie), an essential chemistry that made the series possible in the first place. A fourth season subsequently seemed a longshot, but now those crazy FOX folk have decided to give it a try, renewing Sleepy Hollow to go solo in Season 4.
FOX’s Sleepy Hollow eked by to a third season under a new showrunner, a far cry from the breakout success of its first year, while series star (and its loudest online proponent) Orlando Jones was mysteriously axed from the third run. Now, Jones brazenly admits that producers fired him from the series, complicating the possibility of a return.
Broadcast TV has seen some muted ups and downs in the 2015-2016 season, though no official cancellations have taken place. Still, change is all around for FOX in 2016, banishing Sleepy Hollow to Fridays, while slotting in premieres for DC’s Lucifer, New Girl, and American Idol’s final bow.
Intellectual property is the name of the game, boys and girls, and nothing gets you noticed faster than a little character inversion. To wit, the mad scientists at CBS have hit the lab to cook up a female-led Island of Dr. Moreau TV series, based on the classic H.G. Wells novel.

Recently moving itself up to Halloween, the impending crossover of Bones and Sleepy Hollow has already left more than a few fans scratching their heads. We may finally have answers as to what brings Ichabod, Abbie, Booth and Brennan together, but what game either producers such an insane idea?
Not that either couldn’t use the publicity, but the notion of FOX’s supernatural Sleepy Hollow crossing over with the science-minded Bones struck an odd note for fans of either series. The network had originally though to stage the two-hour event later in the season, perhaps even 2016, but has apparently gotten jazzed up enough to move the crossover as early as Halloween.
The third season of FOX’s Sleepy Hollow has already undergone a bit of course-correction to reclaim its first season fervor, and it seems the next set of Bones Icabod and Abbie encounter will belong to Booth and Brennan. FOX officially has in mind a Sleepy Hollow / Bones crossover for spring, and … no, hang on. Guys, are you sure we have this right? That doesn’t make a damn bit of … oh, cra -
