Paleyfest 2014 is currently under way, and earlier this week it was “Sleepy Hollow’s” turn to tease what’s in store for fans during Season 2. We don’t have much for you, but considering how anxious we are for the return of Ichabod, Abbie, and the rest of the gang, we’ll take what we can get!
TV Guide was at the event on the 19th, and here are the highlights. Be sure to hit the link at the bottom of the page for the rest.
First off, when the show returns, there will be a few new faces in town. “With Irving [Orlando Jones] incarcerated, we have to figure out who’s going to be in charge of the law and order in Sleepy Hollow,” executive producer Mark Goffman said. Unfortunately, the new captain coming to town is NOT an ally to Abbie (Nicole Beharie) and Ichabod (Tom Mison).
As you may recall from the Season 1 finale, in addition to Irving heading to jail, currently Abbie is in purgatory, Ichabod has been buried alive, Katrina is in Headless’ clutches, and Jenny might be dead. Once some or all of them are reunited, they will find a weapon of sorts in a new character that will be a foil for the Headless Horsemen. “We’re creating a new creature that our team kind of controls but doesn’t,” executive producer Len Wiseman said. “It’s a dangerous creation that Headless will have to face… that’s as evil and scary as Headless.” How will this new creature come about? “[There’s] one element of the Headless Horsemen that they possess: his head!”
And Jenny’s fate? “You can be dead, but that doesn’t mean you’re gone,” Goffman said. Rest assured, however, we’ll get more backstory about the sisters and explore their relationship as Abbie embraces “this role as a Witness,” he added, also hinting that another dead character, Andy Brooks (John Cho), might return for several episodes.
“It’s a season about war,” Goffman said. “It’s a season about redemption.” Can War (aka Henry Parrish, Ichabod and Katrina’s son) find said redemption? “What do you do when your son [joins] the horsemen of the apocalypse? That’s what Ichabod is going to have to contemplate if he gets out of that pine box.”
“As evil as he is and what he did is, it’s still their son,” Wiseman added. “So it’s not going to be an easy one to decide what to do with him. At the end of it, can you kill your own son? That’s going to cause conflict.”
