Sleepy Hollow Season 2, Episode 1: "Hellfire"

Katia Winter (Katrina) posted the cover page of her script for the season 2 premiere episode today -- and by the sound of it, they will still be bringing the excitement and the scary again this Fall.  Written by showrunner Mark Goffman ("Necromancer"/"Bad Blood"), and directed by Ken Olin ("The Sin Eater"/"Bad Blood"), shooting for this episode is scheduled to begin May 6th.

As the producers promised at PaleyFest, we'll be getting some new characters in season 2. It looks like there will be a new sheriff in Sleepy Hollow, reports E! Online:

There's a new sheriff in town, and she's kind of a far cry from Corbin. Described as "smart, forceful, highly trained and commanding but also has a warm and maternal side," Sheriff Vasquez apparently used to live in Sleepy Hollow before moving to Texas to work for the U.S. Border Patrol. We hear that's not a very chill job, so we're thinking she's not going to be very tolerant of the headless time-traveling supernatural nonsense that's taken over the town as of late. We'll see how that goes.

Plus, we'll also be getting another look at Ben Franklin (who made a brief appearance in "Vessel'), though I'm hoping we don't have to see him taking an "air bath" like Tom told us Ben took instead of bathing in water! Also from E! Online:

Prepare to meet another one of the Founding Fathers! The Fox hit is set to welcome Benjamin Franklin in season two. Franklin will appear alongside Ichabod in a flashback to 1775 and show off his scathing sense of humor. (The character was briefly seen in season one, but a recast is going down.)

Anyone else as excited as I am?

see the interest and art the show has inspired.” - Mark Goffman (Exec. Producer/Showrunner)

 

As we get closer to the scheduled May 6th start for shooting season 2, more news trickles in about the show. The production office has been open for a while, the writers have been hard at work for weeks, and now the out of town crew is starting to head back. It won't be long before the cast is back as well.

A new extras casting director has been chosen - Ashli Bogart Extras Casting is now on board for season 2. If you live anywhere near Wilmington, they are always looking for new faces. For information on how to register with them, the best thing to do is check out their Facebook page. It sounds like casting notices will start to come through next week.

One of my great resources of information for all production news is the Wilmywood blog, written by Sheila Brothers. Sheila has added another outlet to her list - she is now a contributor to the Community section of EW.com! She posted an article today about the production boom going on now in Wilmington and about all the sites there are to see if you plan on visiting. Click through here to read it.

Just about this time last week, we were watching the live stream of the Sleepy Hollow panel at PaleyFest, and were overjoyed to see the gang back together. Good times. It was a really fun panel, with lots of great stories about how season one got put together, and some hints about what season two will have to offer. Here are several stories and interviews that have been posted since, and links to additional articles and interviews, in case you haven't quite had your fill yet.
