Those seven years of tribulation may happen after all: Fox has renewed Sleepy Hollow for a fourth season, TVLine has learned.
The news comes after a season that ended in April with the death of Abbie, played by Nicole Beharie, who along with Tom Mison’s Ichabod was one of the biblically foretold Witnesses at the center of the show. At the time of the finale, showrunner Clifton Campbell told TVLine that Beharie “will not return to the show as Abbie Mills,” but added that there was a “possibility” that “reflections of her will be around.”
The Season 4 cast list, confirmed by Fox on Friday, includes Mison, Lyndie Greenwood, Lance Cross and Jessica Camacho — but not Beharie, and not Nikki Reed, who TVLine has confirmed is no longer with the series.
No word yet on how many episodes Season 4 will comprise.
As the broadcast networks’ annual Upfronts Week nears, the fate of the last remaining “bubble” shows will be determined, as ABC, CBS, Fox, NBC and The CW get ready to reveal their schedules for the 2016-17 TV season. For easy reference, TVLine’s handy Renewal Scorecard keeps tabs of where each show stands, while our network-by-network Pilot Season Guide lists all of the new comedies and dramas up for consideration — some of which (including ABC’s Kiefer Sutherland-led Designated Survivor) have already been ordered to series.
During Upfronts Week, the broadcast networks take turns announcing and touting their shows and stars for the fall and midseason. NBC and Fox are up first, delivering their respective morning and afternoon presentations on Monday, May 16, followed by ABC (on Tuesday, May 17), CBS (Wednesday, May 18) and The CW (Thursday, May 19).
As Upfronts Week unfolds, TVLine will share the first trailers and photos for all of the new series, as well as continually update our Fall TV Grid, letting you know what will be on when, and opposite what (as well as denote what is being held for midseason).
