We’re finally getting some images from the new season of Sleepy Hollow! WHOO!
It’s getting close to the fall TV season, so I spent part of the weekend actually developing my fall TV viewing/reviewing/recapping schedule (instead of what I usually do, which is wing everything the weekend before fall TV starts).
So, for everyone who loves reading my recaps and viewpoints on TV (and like interacting with me with my live-tweeting), there’s THE OFFICIAL COLOR SCHEDULE!
(All times listed are CT since I’m in the central time zone)
Shannyn Sossamon has become a part of the Sleepy Hollow cast of characters! She’s playing Pandora, and although there wasn’t a lot of info given on her when I spoke to writer/producer Leigh Dana Jackson, I’m sure we can expect Pandora to provide Team Witness with some answers, but possibly just tons more questions. Pandora is known for her box of infinite possibilities, right?
This is possibly the most anticipated interview I’ve done in a while, and the excitement has been such that it scared me, to be honest. But here it is, the interview with Leigh Dana Jackson, one of the writers and producers of Sleepy Hollow.
For those of us who have watched Sleepy Hollow since the beginning, most of us are aware of how Season One is completely different from Season Two. I don’t need to go back into the specifics; you can just read my coverage to see what happened last year. However, Season Three promises to bring back much of the magic of Season One and then some, if you read the tea leaves of Jackson’s answers.
I was happy to write to Jackson via email about how he got started in television writing, the plight of POC characters in television, what happened during the writing process of this season, and his feelings about that Twitter situation that erupted over the word “patience.” I was also able to ask 10 fan questions out of the multitude of questions I received, and even though the questions are, basically, questions asking for spoilers, the one-word answers he does give are very enlightening and should (hopefully) last the fandom until October.
Sleepy Hollow comes back to Fox Oct. 1.
I wrote on Twitter that I wouldn’t write anymore about Sleepy Hollow until the premiere of the third season, since I kinda lost my “journalist” stance on Sleepy Hollow reporting and got way too into the fandom than I would have liked, but I do want to touch on the fact that Lance Gross has joined the cast! I’m excited to see him as Abbie’s boss (I’m assuming at the FBI).
Tons of casting news! I’m only spending a sentence on each; click the links to learn more about each item.
Disclaimer (which I’m only putting here since this is a fraught time in the Sleepy Hollow community): If you’ve got something to say in response to this article, be respectful in the comments section. Otherwise, your comment’s getting deleted. I know a lot of fans are keyed up, so I just want it known that I am a critic and a fan, and my opinions are generally that of a critic who also happens to love the show she’s watching. If this notice doesn’t apply to you, please ignore it. I just have to put my foot down preemptively.
Okay, now that that’s done, let’s get on with the news of the day, Betsy Ross.
There’s some grumbling going ’round the interwebs about Sleepy Hollow not making it to San Diego Comic Con as well as some grumbling about Betsy Ross possibly joining Team Witness (which isn’t going to happen). I’ll tell you why worrying about Betsy isn’t worth it and why the lack of Sleepy Hollow at Comic Con is actually great.
This news was issued a while ago, May 21, to be exact, but I’m just now getting around to it. Forgive me, but stuff was poppin’ for a time. Now that I’m back on my Sleepy Hollow grind, let’s take a look at what new things might be on the way for Abbie and Ichabod and why it’s time for fans to believe that the show is finally back on track.
