Sleepy Hollow @ PaleyFest: Secret Weapons, Horsemen Hopefuls and, Of Course, Skinny Jeans

Sleepy Hollow Season 2 SpoilersBad news for Crane and Mills: Sleepy Hollow‘s newest horseman of the apocalypse is calling in reinforcements.

“War doesn’t work by himself, does he?” series co-creator Roberto Orci asked the crowd at the show’s PaleyFest panel Wednesday night. “There’s a lot of amazing footsoldiers coming.”

The Season 2 scoop didn’t stop there. Throughout the evening, cast members Nicole Beharie, Tom Mison, Lyndie Greenwood, Orlando Jones and John Cho — and executive producers Alex Kurtzman, Orci, Heather Kadin, Mark Goffman and Len Wiseman — talked all things supernatural and cast an eerie eye toward the future. Read on for the Sleepy subjects they covered.

SECRET WEAPON | If and when Abbie and Ichabod reunite, the fight against evil may not be as defeated as the season finale made it seem. After all, the EPs pointed out, the duo still has Headless’ noggin… and they may use it to concoct a “new creation that our team kind of controls” that (hopefully) will fight on their side.

KID TROUBLE | Katrina and Ichabod won’t have an easy time of figuring out how to handle the bent-on-destruction Henry (née Jeremy). “It’s their son,” Wiseman said simply. “Can you kill your own son?” On a similar note, Mison said when he found out that John Noble’s character was actually Ichabod’s progeny, “I felt like an idiot” for missing all of the clues.

MO’ CHO? | When asked if he’d return — despite Andy Brooks’ multiple demises — Cho replied, “If I can come back, let’s do it.”

GET IT, GIRL | Mison confessed that he’d never heard of ‘shipping before joining the show. “It’s a good thing, apparently,” he joked — causing Jones to interject, “You should Google ‘slash’ just for fun.'” Meanwhile, if you’re an Ichabbie enthusiast, Beharie understands your motivation. “Tom is a handsome guy,” she said, coaxing hoots from the audience. “I can imagine that people are watching like, ‘Hook up, already! Hook up!'”

HORSEMEN WISHLIST | There are two open spots left on the horseman roster, and an audience member asked the panel to dream-cast the roles. The Walking Dead‘s Norman Reedus, Luther‘s Idris Elba and film actors Tilda Swinton, Javier Bardem and Clint Eastwood all made the cut.

TEE’D OFF | In solidarity with his locked-up alter ego, Jones wore a T-shirt bearing his mug shot and the words, “Free Frank Irving.”

MISON MISCELLANY | Ichabod may get behind the wheel in the upcoming season — but portrayer Mison will have to earn his learner’s permit right along with him. (Mison doesn’t drive.) Also, when an audience member pointed out that Mison’s attire for the evening closely resembled the pants Ichabod so loathes, the actor quickly corrected him. “No,” Mison said, “Tom is not wearing skinny jeans.”

    That panel was quite funny. The story of how they get Tom riding horseback was hysterical. The visual….it will not go away!

    I love the dream cast list, LOL. And “Free Frank Irving”. Nice :D. I’d be interested in seeing Mison’s reaction to slash, too :p. Also, Mison not driving makes me feel better about not driving :).
    As for the show itself, so that “new creation” idea sounds particularly intriguing. I like the sound of that. And I’m definitely curious as to how Katrina and Ichabod will handle everything with Henry-especially if they find themselves at odds over what to do. And yes to more John Cho. Agh, I’m so jealous of anyone who got to go to this panel-why is it not fall yet?

    It wasn’t the series finale but the season finale. Not like it really matters, just in case it’s a typo. Anyway, I wish it was airing sooner than this freaking fall but I definitely cannot wait.

  4. Pat says:

    Thank you Kimberly for giving me something to read about Sleepy Hollow. I cannot wait for Fall to come but in the meantime keep these little stories coming and hopefully that will make the time go by faster, at least for me.

    It sure would be nice if Fox would re-air every episode from season one this summer – I would watch every single one of them again. I love this show.

      My husband and I were just saying the other day how much we hate Mondays now that there’s no Sleepy Hollow to look forward to! I, too, hope they replay it over the summer (or put it on Netflix). Such a fun show.

    • Angela says:

      Agreed. That’d be great. Get us all pumped up for the new season once again.

  6. DiverKlein says:

    Easily the best new show to come along in like..ages. Ended way to soon and cannot wait for the season to start up

  7. I totally want one of those “Free Irving” t-shirts.

  8. Marci says:

    I would love to see Idris Elba on the show, and more of John Cho. And, yes, please free Irving!

  9. RElaxxx says:

    YES to more Undead Andy luv John Cho I wish he would turn back to his more human form yes monday nights are not the same for me anymore Sleepy Hollow and Almost Human were the only shows I watched on mondays as well as the only shows I watched on FOX The cast all looked well rested and giggly at Paleyfest I enjoy the chemistry between the five actors cannot wait for season two

    When is it back on..

  11. It’s a good idea to look for a site with an edited selection of high quality items to
    choose from. You may need to copy it later on so all of the kids and yourself can have a copy.
    After that arts and crafts festival, I went home and got a few more e-books.

    Therefore, a puppy raised with cats will most likely tend to get
    along better with the cats. Keeping your cat in one room with everything he
    needs will be less overwhelming than letting him
    loose in the house. Cats are as common as dogs, but somehow there are
    a lot of people who dislike cats more than they do dogs, but when asked
    why, their reply would be, oh, I just hate them, no particular reason.
