'Sleepy Hollow' gets the comic-book treatment

The world of Sleepy Hollow—and, most importantly, Tom Mison’s hair—no longer exists only on the small screen. BOOM! Studios has created new prologues to the series in the form of digital comics, the first of which are available on the show’s Facebook page and BOOM!’s Tumblr page.

The first two prologues focus on Ichabod Crane and Jenny Mills (who we now know survived her ordeal at the end of season 1). Both pieces, which take place before the first season of the Fox show, are written by Bad Robot‘s Mike Johnson and illustrated by Matias Bergara.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, a total of five shorts are planned. And then, BOOM!’s full Sleepy Hollow comic, written by Marguerite Bennett with art by Jorge Coelho, will debut Oct. 15. The comic will also feature shorts by Noelle Stevenson.

As for the show, Sleepy Hollow returns Monday, Sept. 22 at 9 p.m. on Fox.

What to binge-watch this week: 'Sleepy Hollow,' 'Doctor Who,' 'The X-Files'

Last week, we pretty much realized that we had an illegally elected, alcoholic figurehead for a president on Scandal. This week, we march forward on our 30 Days of Binge calendar to season 3 of Scandal, and all that wine Pope drinks will sure come in handy as we see the fallout from Olivia Pope being uncovered as the president’s mistress to the media.

We also became acquainted with Michael Emerson’s excellence in creepiness as “Henry Gale” on season 2 of Lost, and watched as the islanders continue on pressing that damned button in the hatch. This week, we see what happens when the button isn’t pushed, which somehow leads to Desmond Hume (Henry Ian Cusick) getting his clothes blown off. We guess this is where ABC had to pump up that 18-49 ratings demographic. Stock up on the tissues though: things get real sad, real fast by the end of this week’s Lost binge.

Midweek is the time to start Sleepy Hollow, which stars an unusually fine Ichabod Crane (Tom Mison), considering he was just risen from the dead and all. Continuing on the science fiction theme, find out how the Daleks got their start in classic Doctor Who, watch William Shatner as a young lad in the original Star Trek series from the ’60s, and see the original stuck-on-an-island television drama, The Prisoner. Also, catch up on the 1985 anime Robotech, a space opera about an alien spaceship crashing to Earth that spans across three series.

Another animated series to hit up: Batman: The Animated Series. The animated series from the ’90s was a highlight in the midst of the notoriously kitschy and nippled Batman adaptions at the time. Continue on the ’90s bandwagon and watch the awesomeness of Lucy Lawless in Xena: Warrior Princess, and then catch up with our favorite monotone FBI agents Scully and Mulder in choice episodes of The X-Files, one of which was written by a fresh-faced writer by the name of Vince Gilligan.

'Sleepy Hollow' first look: Jenny's alive, Ichabod and Abbie reunite

The last time we visited Sleepy Hollow, things weren’t looking good for Ichabod and company. Specifically, Jeremy turned out to be the Horseman of War, a revelation he presented before handing his mother, Katrina, off to the Headless Horseman and then burying his father alive. If that wasn’t bad enough, Abbie was stuck in purgatory and Jenny was potentially dead literally on the side of the road. But things can only stay so grim for so long, right?

In the first photos from the season 2 premiere, fans get confirmation that not only did Jenny survive her run-in with the Headless Horseman, but Abbie and Ichabod won’t be apart for long. Then again, we sort of already knew that. How else would they work together to summon a new demon? Or perhaps the better question is: Why is Ichabod carrying around such a high-tech gun?

Hulu Plus lands exclusive streaming rights to 'Sleepy Hollow'

It’s a good time to be a Sleepy Hollow binger.

Starting today, the first season will be exclusively streamed on Hulu Plus in anticipation of the show’s season 2 premiere on Sept. 22. The streaming rights to the popular Fox show is a coup for Hulu Plus, which charges subscribers $7.99 a month and lets paying viewers have access to new episodes the day after airing.

Sleepy Hollow follows the heroic exploits of a risen-from-the-dead Ichabod Crane (Tom Mison) as he fights a plethora of supernatural bad guys with police lieutenant Abbie Mills (Nicole Beharie).

'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

'Sleepy Hollow' fave Orlando Jones enrolls in Hulu's 'East Los High' for guest spot -- EXCLUSIVE

Orlando Jones is getting out of Sleepy Hollow for a trip to East L.A.

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.
