Casting news broke today - Nikki Reed (13, Twilight) has joined the show in the role of Betsy Ross. Of course, in typical Sleepy Hollow fashion, nothing was really as our history books tell us it was. As showrunner Clifton Campbell (@CCInnuendo) tweeted - this is not your father's Betsy Ross. She was actually a flag-sewing, butt kicking spy, working as an operative for General Washington. Was she involved in stopping the coming apocalypse as well? Was she really chasing after Ichabod, as he'd have us believe? We'll find out when the show returns on Thursday, October 1st at 9pm.
It looks like shooting could be starting next week in their new digs in Atlanta. According to Michael Ausiello at TVLine, the show may be also working on something interesting for later in the season - a crossover with FOX's other Thursday night drama, Bones. Apparently they have figured out a way to make the worlds of each show mesh (no mean feat). It may be a crazy idea, but it's also a great promotional opportunity and a unique way to get more viewers tuning in - never a bad thing!
