Official Synopsis

SLEEPY HOLLOW
(Mondays, 9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT)

SLEEPY HOLLOW returns this fall with all-new edge-of-your-seat mysteries and adventures, as the series’ heroic duo of ICHABOD CRANE (Tom Mison) and ABBIE MILLS (Nicole Beharie) fends off the forces of evil to save not only their town, but the world.

Picking up immediately after the spellbinding events of the Season One finale, Ichabod finds himself buried alive in a coffin; Abbie is trapped in purgatory; Ichabod’s wife, KATRINA (Katia Winter), has been kidnapped by the Headless Horseman; Capt. FRANK IRVING (Orlando Jones) is behind bars for a murder he did not commit; and Abbie’s sister, JENNY (Lyndie Greenwood), is among the wreckage of a horrific car crash.

These events were due in large part to the shocking revelation that HENRY PARISH (John Noble), the trusted friend of Ichabod and Abbie, is actually Ichabod and Katrina’s son and the Second Horseman of the Apocalypse. Now, with Henry’s emergence as the Horseman of War, alongside the Headless Horseman, Sleepy Hollow has never been so close to destruction.  

This season, fans will be introduced to a myriad of new faces in Sleepy Hollow, including SHERIFF LEENA REYES (guest star Sakina Jaffrey, “House of Cards”) and the enigmatic NICK HAWLEY (guest star Matt Barr, “Hatfields & McCoys”) who add new drama, excitement and intrigue to the ever-thickening story of the mystical town. Sheriff Reyes’ no-nonsense attitude threatens Ichabod and Abbie's progress, while Hawley’s appearance in town adds romantic intrigue and a touch of scandal. For their part, Ichabod and Abbie face a new slew of netherworld evils and must combat them, at times, using fire to fight fire. Plus, the realization that their No. 1 foe is actually Ichabod's son places loyalties – and seemingly unbreakable friendships – to the ultimate test. As always, Ichabod continues to discover more about the modern world around him – from the joys of the modern-day banking system, to a new, perplexing exercise routine: yoga.

An immediate hit with fans and critics, SLEEPY HOLLOW debuted to more than 24 million viewers across multiple platforms,  making it FOX’s highest-rated fall drama premiere in 13 years. SLEEPY HOLLOW finished its freshman run as the No. 2 new drama on all of television.

The premiere season of SLEEPY HOLLOW introduced viewers to a resurrected Ichabod, pulled two and a half centuries through time to unravel a mystery that dates back to the founding fathers. Revived alongside Ichabod was the infamous Headless Horseman, who embarked upon a murderous rampage in present-day Sleepy Hollow and, to Ichabod’s alarm, was the first of many horrors to seep into the town.

Ichabod teamed up with Abbie, a “leftenant” on the police force, and the two embarked on a supernatural mission to stop the evil that awoke along with Ichabod. With the help of Captain Irving and Abbie’s estranged sister, Jenny, the pair battled witches, demons, plagues, Acolytes, the Sandman, a haunted house, the Golem, the dark demon Moloch and now, as Season Two begins, they’re in a battle for their lives. Nothing is as it seems in this fantastical world of mythology, death-defying romance, untold history, signature “Crane” humor, hair-raising evil and, perhaps, much-needed hope.

SLEEPY HOLLOW is from K/O Paper Products in association with 20th Century Fox Television. The series was created by Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci, Phillip Iscove and Len Wiseman. The series is executive-produced by Kurtzman, Orci, Wiseman, Mark Goffman, Heather Kadin and Ken Olin. “Like” SLEEPY HOLLOW on Facebook at facebook.com/SleepyHollowFOX.

As ever, though, it’s the smaller touches that make this show such a pleasure to watch. Nicole Beharie and Tom Mison’s buddy chemistry remains top notch, and even knowing there was no way this hour would end with them separated, it was still delightful to see them reunited once more. The discovery that Benjamin Franklin (Timothy Busfield) hid the Gehenna Key was a great chance for Ichabod to throw shade at a historical figure, and the few flashbacks are the usual blend of snark and National Treasure-style exposition. And the show still looks great: The effects of traveling to Purgatory are gorgeous, Moloch is creepy as hell, and that suit of armor pulled out of the wall at the end… well. It’s keen, is what I’m getting at here.

Even beyond this, the script is that blend of goofy (let’s make up some more random mythological shit to throw in!) and sharp that I’m coming to think of as the series’ greatest creative strength. (Well, in addition to Beharie and Mison.)

 

Ryan McGee, Screencrush:

‘Sleepy Hollow’ is now the funniest show on FOX. No offense to the actual comedies on that network, but in its second season ‘Sleepy Hollow’ continues to mine humor from everyone’s matter-of-fact approach to the surreal events in the show coupled with Crane’s inability to understand facets of the modern world. In lesser hands, these would turn into schlocky gimmicks. But the writers have found a way to deploy Crane’s confusion into each week’s mission, rather than simply try to cram in jokes just because Mison has chemistry with everyone (and everything) he comes into contact. (The dude has chemistry with a pen. A pen!!!)
