‘Sleepy Hollow’ will not return for a fifth season after the show was cancelled on Tuesday…
‘Sleepy Hollow’ has officially been cancelled by FOX after four seasons on the network.
A surprise breakout hit when the show first debuted, ‘Sleepy Hollow’ got rave reviews from critics and viewers alike with the story focusing on a preserved-from-the-dead Ichabod Crane waking up in modern day Sleepy Hollow, New York before teaming up with a local police detective to stop all sorts of supernatural crimes while going up against the actual Horseman of the Apocalypse.
The first two seasons were well received and the show seemed to be a hit at FOX, but with a change in show runners and direction in the series for seasons three and four, the audience dwindled over time.
Following the end of season three, co-star Nicole Beharie exited the show, which was already a massive loss considering a big part of the charm of ‘Sleepy Hollow’ was the chemistry she shared with Tom Mison, who played Ichabod Crane.
The fourth season ended up on Friday nights, which is almost a death sentence for many television shows, and ‘Sleepy Hollow’ saw its ratings plummet with a shorter episode order than the first three seasons.
Now ‘Sleepy Hollow’ has officially been cancelled following the end of the fourth season several weeks ago.
