In the exclusive sneak peek above, Mison gives a quick refresher on the revamped drama’s new direction (Ichabod’s now the head of a secret, Washington, D.C.-based organization “set up to fight the supernatural”) as we watch the Revolutionary War captain and new partner Diana (played by True Blood‘s Janina Gavankar) come face-to-face with the aforementioned undercover collective… which just looks like a couple of nerds hanging out in a giant library.
Fellow cast members Lyndie Greenwood and Jeremy Davies also weigh in, with the former getting excited about the heralded return of the Headless Horseman and the latter calling his new gig a “deliciously preposterous” supernatural saga.
Mison also discusses how the death of his fellow Witness at the end of Season 3 gives him a whole new mission. “His only comfort zone in the modern world was Abbie, and now she’s gone,” he says. “He has to find himself again, and not only that, but find himself in a new city and with new people around him.”
It’s not all gloom and literal doom, though. In one glimpse of a future episode, we see Crane tackle that most evil and foul of adversaries: putting together a piece of Ikea furniture.
