NEW YORK (AP) — “Sleepy Hollow” was renewed after just three episodes last year, and star Tom Mison, who plays Ichabod Crane, calls the new season “the tricky second album.”
“Last season people were … expecting us to be terrible,” Mison says of the Fox mythical drama, which airs Monday nights (9 p.m. EDT). “Let’s be honest … (the show’s premise is) quite a bold idea. Last season: low expectations. This season: high.”
Set in modern day, Crane awakens after being killed in the Revolutionary War. He must adjust to the new time period, battle the headless horseman and prevent the apocalypse with the help of police Lt. Abbie Mills (Nicole Beharie). He’s also trying to reunite with his wife, Katrina.
Beharie says “Sleepy Hollow” will be more character-driven this season.
“This year it’s a lot more personal, and there are a lot of questions about (whether Ichabod and Abbie) can remain loyal to one another and to their cause,” she says.
