FOX has released its fall and mid-season schedules today in advance of their Upfront presentations in New York City this afternoon. Sleepy Hollow will be returning mid-season on Fridays at 9pm. No specific date was announced, but generally that should mean an early 2017 start for the show. Deadline is saying the network has gone back to a 13 episode order, which was so successful in Season 1.
Additionally, the executives expressed an impressive amount of support for Tom. From TVLine:
“What we know is that Tom Mison is a big star. And the Ichabod Crane character has been so central to the series and the storytelling and he feels like an original, big Fox character.
“We don’t feel like it has to be the end of the life of the show,” she added. “And while there was backlash, there was also a tremendous amount of enthusiasm from fans about the show coming back and about Tom having the ability to be the center of the series and discovering new dynamics and new relationships. It’s a very original premise and we felt like it had greater life in it and that there was no reason to end it at that point.”
The presentation is slated to start at 4pm this afternoon. Tom won't be attending the event, but any new information that comes out of it will be posted here.
