The new promo art for Season 2 of “Sleepy Hollow” already revealed that war is coming, but what else is making its way to the supernaturally challenged town? The Pied Piper for one thing, and that’s just the beginning…
During Fox’s presentation to the Television Critics Association over the weekend, series co-creator Len Wiseman said that, along with the aforementioned Piper, we’ll also see new twists on a wendigo creature, a succubus character, and “the kindred.”
His fellow co-creator Alex Kurtzman added that these creatures will be a “manifestation of what our characters are actually going through. The inner demons are manifested as literal demons.”
So that covers the demon part of our headline. What about the surprises? Executive producer Mark Goffman teased, “We’re going to drop a few bombs in this season with Crane (Tom Mison) and Katrina (Katia Winter) that neither of them could have ever prepared for.”
Ichabod aand Abbie (Nicole Beharie), on the other hand, could gain a new ally. “We have a new sheriff in town, Lena Reyes (played by Sakina Jaffrey), and that’s going to pose a lot of cool conflict with Crane and Abbie as they try to work their way in the precinct,” Goffman said. “She has a history in Sleepy Hollow but has been with the Border Patrol.” He added that Abbie has more of a connection to the no-nonsense Lena than she knows and will learn about her own past through working with the newcomer.
There’s a bit more in TV Guide’s article so be sure to hit the link below, and look for additional scoops this week from San Diego Comic-Con, where panel attendees will see a sneak peek clip of Ichabod’s confusion over the pens that are attached to chains at the bank.
