'Sleepy Hollow' producer previews new monsters, gives season 2 scoop

War is coming to Sleepy Hollow. And he bought a new outfit for the occasion.

As you’ll see from the following exclusive sketches, Fox’s delightfully insane supernatural drama is planning a second season that’ll be bigger (18 episodes, as opposed to last year’s 13), badder, and most definitely more terrifying. EW chatted with Sleepy executive producer Roberto Orci about some of the beasts who’ll be spooking Ichabod and Abbie this year—including a beefed-up Moloch, a creepy take on the Pied Piper, and a mysterious being known as the Kindred—as well as some burning questions about the season more generally. (And yes, that means Crane and Mills’ romantic status.)

EW: Is it fair to say that season two will be scarier than season one?
ROBERTO ORCI: I think that is fair to say—but without losing its humor. Some of the best humor comes out of being scared.

Season one ended with everyone in peril—Ichabod is buried alive, Abbie is stuck in purgatory, Jenny might be dead. How do you pick up those threads for the premiere?
We pick up two years later… No, I’m kidding. We’re not going to cheat that way. READ FULL STORY

'Sleepy Hollow' gets more episodes for 'epic' season 2

sleepy-hollow.jpg

If the first season of Sleepy Hollow left you wanting a little more, you’ll love what Fox has planned for season 2.

The breakout supernatural-historical thriller will produce at least 15 episodes for its sophomore season, with producers currently preparing for a potential total of 18 episodes. That’s well above the 13-episode order for season one.

The move gives producers more leeway to tell an ambitious story, which executive producer Mark Goffman says will have a war theme. Of course, more epiosdes also means that the Sleepy Hollow team has to fill more hours, and Fox has been advocating shorter seasons for dramas in general as a way of boosting creative quality. The 13-episode “cable model” is being increasingly tested by broadcast networks for certain serialized shows, while short-order “event series” such as Fox’s upcoming thriller Wayward Pines are all the rage. Goffman tells EW he’s confident Sleepy Hollow will continue to maintain the same creative and production values that fans enjoyed during its debut season. READ FULL STORY

'Sleepy Hollow' casts 'West Wing' actor as Benjamin Franklin for season 2 -- EXCLUSIVE

Sleepy Hollow is enlisting a major Founding Father this fall. Ichabod Crane will meet up with Benjamin Franklin in season 2. Fox’s breakout action-thriller has cast The West Wing actor Timothy Busfield to play “the First American” in a recurring role for the show’s sophomore season.

Fans will discover that Crane (Tom Mison) reluctantly apprenticed under Franklin before he awoke in present day upstate New York. “Last season, we created this history between Ichabod and George Washington that talked about this secret war that was part of the American Revolution,” says executive producer Mark Goffman. “This season, we’re continuing that and expanding on it with other characters. Benjamin Franklin is great because we are all familiar with so many of his contributions and now we get to pull back the veil a bit. This man founded the printing press and was responsible for so many [innovations] and now we find out he’s involved in this secret war and that Crane had a relationship with him. I’ve read several biographies of Franklin and we’re teeing off on some of his precociousness and eccentricities.” READ FULL STORY

EW has learned exclusively that the Sleepy fan favorite is set to appear in an upcoming episode of Hulu’s Los Angeles-set original series East Los High. Jones will guest as a host/announcer at a high-stakes dance competition.

East Los High, a sort of Hispanic Degrassi in that its storylines are rooted in high school drama and teen issues, is currently in production on season 2, which will premiere this summer.

Jones currently plays Capt. Irving on Fox’s Sleepy Hollow, which returns for a second season in the fall.

Fox renews 'Mindy Project,' 'The Following,' more

Brooklyn Nine-Nine, The Mindy Project, and New Girl have all been renewed for new seasons, Fox announced Friday.

The network’s pickup of freshman comedy Brooklyn comes as no surprise, considering the Andy Samberg vehicle took a top prize at the Golden Globes in January, and both Mindy and New Girl, going into their third and fourth seasons respectively, were considered safe bets for renewal.

Fox has also renewed The Following, which will return for a third season.

“These shows are some of the best and acclaimed series on television, with influential, culture-driving stars, and some of the best, most creative talent behind the camera,” said bosses Kevin Reilly and Joe Earley in a joint statement. “All four are core assets within our 2014-15 portfolio of content, and we’re really happy to bring them back to our FOX fans for another season.”

The news comes a little over a month after Fox announced the renewal of Bones for a tenth season. Sleepy Hollow and Glee are also set to return, with the latter going into its sixth and final season.

The fates of drama Almost Human and comedies Dads, Raising Hope, and Enlisted remain undecided. For more on their odds, check out EW’s annual TV Death Watch.

Sleepy Hollow wrapped up its freshman season Monday night with a finale packed full of major twists and a whopper of a cliffhanger that left pretty much every major character in a terrible, life-threatening position. (Head thee to EW’s Sleepy Hollow recap for all the details.)

With Ichabod (Tom Mison) buried six feet under (while still alive), Abbie (Nicole Beharie) trapped in Purgatory, and Katrina (Katia Winter) kidnapped by the headless horseman, executive producer Mark Goffman had a lot to answer for when we called him up after viewing the heart-stopping episode. Luckily Goffman, who penned the extraordinary second hour with fellow EP Alex Kurtzman, was more than happy to break it all down for us — and give us some early scoop on season 2!

'Sleepy Hollow': Tom Mison and Orlando Jones tease the spooky 'Vessel'

After a month hiatus, Sleepy Hollow returns Monday night (Fox, 9 p.m. ET) with an episode that star Tom Mison promises will be a scary one. “It’s a constantly tense one,” he says. “I like that the show does simmer, and then there are a few moments that jump out at you.” The hour explores more of Jenny Mills’ (Lyndie Greenwood) past, Mison teases, “and the fact that she was once possessed — who wasn’t.” As the clip below reveals, Sheriff Corbin (Clancy Brown) helped Jenny through the possession, which had an effect on her relationship with her sister, Abbie (Nicole Beharie). As for Ichabod, “As is so often the case,” Mison teases, “he suddenly remembers something from the 18th century that eludes to demonic possession, so he struts off with Abbie running along in tow to find a way of dealing with present-day demonic possession.” Though Mison tried to keep who is possessed now a secret, the show’s promos have already let that cat out of the bag. The demon wants Washington’s Bible and will use Macy (Amandla Stenberg), the daughter of Capt. Irving (Orlando Jones), as a bargaining chip. “I was trying to keep it mysterious and exciting, but yes, alright, fine,” he says, with a laugh. He also reveals that Abbie’s ex, Luke (Nicholas Gonzalez), is a part of the story: “He is also affected by demonic possession. Basically, the theme of tonight is demonic possession,” Mison quips.  READ FULL STORY
