[Warning: General spoilers ahead.]
Y’all know I have seriously mad love for Crane and Abbie and that I really, really wanted a third season of Sleepy Hollow. It’s finally here, and it’s a scoche different, but as I’ve said all along — if the core holds, the show holds, and the Crane/Abbie bond is very much intact so I’m in.
The only remaining holdover from the first two seasons (alongside Tom Mison and Nicole Beharie) is Lyndie Greenwood‘s Jenny. At the end of last season, we dropped Katrina and Parrish. In the opening moments of the premiere, we lose one more, and soon hear that another core character is gone, too. According to press last month, we also won’t see Nick again. (DAMMIT!)
What we do get instead is the ageless Shannyn Sossamon, staying on the FOX roster after Wayward Pines, as a new potential baddie named Pandora (yes, that one), and Nikki Reed as Betsy Ross (yes, that one), who Crane of course knew, and gets to tell Jenny was so much more than “the flag lady.”
There’s a monster of the week right out of the gate, and a time jump, and a couple of fairly extreme makeovers, but thankfully the waistcoat and boots are still intact (THANK YOU). C. Thomas Howell also has a quick guest spot. The production move from Wilmington to Atlanta isn’t obvious — it is after all, the home of Mystic Falls, and S1 Beacon Hills.
Sleepy Hollow moves to Thursdays, in a ridiculously packed schedule and timeslot, at 9 pm ET/8 CT on FOX in the US, and in Canada it moves from Global to CTV two, Thursdays at 9 pm ET/PT. I am so, so glad it’s back. Here is a sneak peek of “I, Witness.”
