Neil Jackson, who guest-starred as Abraham Van Brunt in a Season 1 episode of Fox’s supernatural drama, will recur heavily when the series returns this fall, our sister site Deadline reports.

Sleepyheads will recall that Jackson’s character was a close pal of Ichabod’s — and a boyfriend of Katrina’s — before an unfortunate series of events turned him into the Headless Horseman.

In addition to playing Make It or Break It‘s Sasha, Jackson also has had roles on Flash Forward and CSI, as well as in the Bond film Quantum of Solace.

Jackson’s increased screen time jibes with what executive producer Ken Olin told TVLine last year. “I would imagine that we will definitely see [Abraham] more,” he said, noting that the first season’s cliffhanger was “based on the known history of the relationship between Katrina and the horseman’s former identity.”

He added: “That story has, by no means, been told yet.”

    Is Neil Jackson hailed from England?

    I’m surprise that we aren’t seeing Jackson in more shows. I thought he was outstanding in the short lived series – Blade. If you haven’t seen the series, I highly recommend it.

    So excited for season two of Sleepy Hollow!

      Hope you like it when you do watch it. It’s a fun show :).
      I’m so happy we’re getting news stories on the next season already.

    Had no idea fans are called Sleepyheads. I can live with it. It’s better than being a fan of Benedict Cumberbatch.

    We have a long summer ahead before the return of Fall and this “Sleepyhead” will take any news on Sleepy Hollow. So thank you and keep it coming, TVLINE.com! PS–Love that you gave us a nickname.

      In no way was TV Line responsible for that nickname. Online fans have been calling themselves that from the very beginning, and then I think Orlando Jones ran with it, which sort of made it “official.”

        Thank you! Sleepyheads started calling themselves that from the jump and came up the term Sleepy Fridays when Fox would repeat the monday episodes on friday! Then it became this thing were Orlando would live tweet with the fans then the rest of the crew joined in! There have been tumblr pages dedicated to Sleepy Hollow months before the first episode even aired! The tumblr, twitter etc movement has been amazing!
