Fox is doing a bit of reshuffling as far as the finale of Sleepy Hollow and the season two debut of The Following is concerned. Sleepy Hollow will now conclude its first season in a special two-hour event on Monday, January 20th from 8-10pm ET/PT.
The Following, meanwhile, will stick to its original plan to debut season two “special preview” on Sunday, January 19th with the official season premiere to kick off on Monday, January 27th (not the 20th, as originally planned).

Fox has a big winner on its hands. After its huge debut made it the network’s most successful fall drama premiere since 24 in 2001, Sleepy Hollow scored a second season.
While going head-to-head (no pun intended) with a Redcoat during the Revolutionary War, Ichabod Crane (Tom Mison) lops off his enemy’s head, but suffers a vicious wound himself. When he comes to, he’s no longer in 1783; he’s in present day Sleepy Hollow, and so is his now headless adversary. Meanwhile, a young cop named Abbie Mills (Nicole Beharie) is preparing to leave town and begin FBI training in Quantico. However, after a close call with the Headless Horseman’s axe, Abbie opts to sideline her plans, team up with Ichabod, and do whatever it takes to put an end to this cycle of evil.
Prior to a meet-and-greet with its newly amassed fan base during a panel at New York Comic Con, Mison, Beharie, Orlando Jones (Captain Frank Irving), Katia Winter (Katrina Crane), co-creator and executive producer Alex Kurtzman, and director, co-creator and executive producer Len Wiseman sat down for a series of roundtable interviews.
Sleepy Hollow is only three episodes into its run and Fox has officially ordered up a second season.
The decision was announced today by Kevin Reilly, Chairman of Entertainment, Fox Broadcasting Company.
“The show has proven to be a risk well worth taking – it’s a conceptual blast unlike anything else on television and it all holds together with inventive writing and a fantastic cast,” said Reilly. “I can’t wait for fans to experience what else is in store for this fall and even more of this wild ride into Season Two.”
This week on The BloodCast, Ryan Turek and Clarke Wolfe return after a long break to talk about the box office success of Insidious: Chapter 2 as well as the big ratings for the latest incarnation of Washington Irving’s horror classic Sleepy Hollow.
Then it’s on to film as Ryan and Clarke list and discuss their top five favorite horror movies of all time.
The pair returns to TV to talk spin-offs and they question if the glut of new television shows based on features films is replacing the need for big screen remakes.
Lots to discuss in this episode. Listen inside, or download via The BloodCast’s home at GeekNation or on iTunes!
NBC’s Dracula and Fox’s Sleepy Hollow have yielded various new promos. From the former, head inside for a look at some new imagery in the form of a still and poster.
The series premieres October 25th and stars Jonathan Rhys Meyers.It’s the late 19th century, and the mysterious Dracula has arrived in London, posing as an American entrepreneur who wants to bring modern science to Victorian society. He’s especially interested in the new technology of electricity, which promises to brighten the night – useful for someone who avoids the sun. But he has another reason for his travels: he hopes to take revenge on those who cursed him with immortality centuries earlier. Everything seems to be going according to plan… until he becomes infatuated with a woman who appears to be a reincarnation of his dead wife.
Fox has revealed a new 30-second promo for Sleepy Hollow. The show is set to premiere on Fox September 16th.
In this modern-day twist on Washington Irving’s classic, Ichabod Crane (Tom Mison, Salmon Fishing in the Yemen) is resurrected and pulled two and a half centuries through time to find that the world is on the brink of destruction and that he is humanity’s last hope, forcing him to team up with a contemporary police officer (Nicole Beharie, 42) to unravel a mystery that dates back to the founding fathers.
Len Wiseman (Underworld) directed the pilot.
