Sleepy Hollow is returning in a big way for Season 2, with Fox upping the number of episodes to at least 15.
Chairman of Entertainment Kevin Reilly tells Vulture that producers are prepping for between 15 and 18 episodes in the drama’s sophomore outing, up from 13 in Season 1.
“We’re in series production now,” Reilly says. “We’ve got our writers’ staff up and running. We’ll start shooting in May. … There will be no preemptions [except maybe] one over the World Series or a holiday.”
