Fox will delve into a second season of the action/adventure series “Sleepy Hollow,” it 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.”
The series premiere of “Sleepy Hollow” earned a 5.0/13 rating among Adults 18-49 and drew 13.6 million viewers after three additional days of time-shifted viewing, making it Fox’s most successful fall drama premiere since the debut of “24″ in November 2001. With its encore, post-three-day playback on DVR and VOD, and its streaming on Fox.com and Hulu.com, the series premiere of “Sleepy Hollow” has already drawn an audience of more than 22 million.
“Sleepy Hollow” is a thrilling mystery-adventure drama series spanning two and a half centuries, in which a resurrected Ichabod Crane (Tom Mison) pairs up with a present-day police lieutenant (Nicole Beharie) to save the enigmatic town of Sleepy Hollow – and the world – from unprecedented evil.
From K/O Paper Products in association with 20th Century Fox Television, “Sleepy Hollow” is co-created by Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci, Phillip Iscove and Len Wiseman. The series is executive-produced by Kurtzman, Orci, Wiseman, Mark Goffman, Ken Olin and Heather Kadin. Iscove serves as supervising producer.
