  1. Oh, I hadn’t realized Sleepy Hollow was only half a season. That is terribly disappointing. I’ve come to really like it. Also interesting about Body of Proof resurrection(possibly). I wasn’t thrilled with the reboot last season, but still liked the show.

  2. Hi Pauline! Sleepy Hollow was planned from the start to be a 13-episode season. Luckily, they’ve already been renewed for season two.

  3. You made my day with the Sherlock news! I have been waiting for season 3 ever since I caught up with season 2 ages ago.
