Don't lose your head over cancellation woes, Sleepy Hollow fans! You've been saved from that fate yet again.
Fox just renewed the sci-fi drama for season three, E! News has confirmed. This renewal comes as a very welcome surprise. The Fox show has been struggling in ratings this season (losing 40 percent of its season one viewership), making fans worried that season two would be its last.
But with the renewal comes a bit of a behind-the-scenes shake-up. Showrunner Mark Goffman previously announced he was leaving the show, so who's taking the reins for season three?
The Glades and White Collar executive producer Clifton Campbell has joined Sleepy Hollow as executive producer for the 18-episode third season.
"Sleepy Hollow is truly inventive television," Fox entertainment president David Madden said in a statement. "The talented producers—led by Alex [Kurtzman], Bob [Orci], Len [Wiseman] and Heather [Kadin]—along with the brilliant cast, anchored by Nicole [Beharie] and Tom [Mison], have created a fantastic world that brings ‘history' to life with compelling and vibrant storytelling. I had the pleasure of working with Clifton on both The Glades and White Collar. He is an excellent producer, and we can't wait to see what this team has in store for season three."
At the end of season two, Ichabod Crane (Mison) and Abbie Mills (Beharie) were victorious in their battle over evil, but the two witnesses suffered a loss as well. Ichabod was forced to make the decision to kill his own wife Katrina Crane (Katia Winter). According to Fox, the third season will "explore how the partnership between Crane and Mills will evolve and what challenges these two witnesses will now face."
Are you excited that Sleepy Hollow is sticking around for another season?
