Huzzah, Sleepy Heads! We finally have some details and photos from “Sleepy Hollow’s” highly anticipated Season 3 premiere, “I, Witness.” As we’ve already learned, FOX and new “Sleepy” showrunner, Clifton Campbell, have been busy rebooting the series. Here is everything we know about Season 3 so far.
About one year has passed since last season’s phenomenal finale. Abbie has completed her training at Quantico is a full-fledged FBI agent, while Ichabod spent some time in England getting in touch with his (as we discovered in this TVLine teaser). As you can tell by the photos, both Witness also got haircuts, which is a time-jump staple. You have to admit, Tom Mison’s natural locks are looking good.
To further recap, there are four new series regulars joining the cast:
Nikki Reed stars as Crane’s sassy former flame, Betsy Ross (details HERE).
Shannyn Sossamon will portray the mysterious Pandora (more HERE). Will she be this season’s new baddie or will her box help contain the impending Second Tribulation?
As we learned earlier, Lance Gross will be Abbie’s boss, FBI special agent Daniel Reynolds. However, now we know that the two share a spicy history. According to Entertainment Weekly, Abbie and Daniel were quite an item when they trained together at Quantico. Let’s see if this guy gets Ichabod’s stamp of approval. We all know he was less than thrilled with Hawley’s overtures.
Lastly, Zach Appelman will reprise his role as Sheriff’s Corbin’s son and former Wendigo, Joe. He became an instant fan-favorite, so Sleepy Heads are thrilled to know that he’ll be helping out Team Witness full-time. Looks like Jenny Mills may have found her new BAMF partner crime (although no one will ever be able to replace Det. Frank Irving).
Now that we’re all caught up on where “Sleepy Hollow” stands, let’s get the latest scoop on the season opener. FOX has released this brief synopsis:
THE FIGHT AGAINST EVIL IS OVER…OR IS IT — FIND OUT ON THE ALL-NEW SEASON THREE PREMIERE OF “SLEEPY HOLLOW” THURSDAY, OCTOBER 1, ON FOX
With old enemies gone, Abbie and Crane are apparently moving on with their lives. However, the discovery of a mysterious tablet shows that there may be a new dark prophecy surrounding our Witnesses. The two team together, with the help of an old amulet, and continue their epic takedown of the forces of evil in the all-new “I, Witness” Season Three Premiere episode of SLEEPY HOLLOW airing Thursday, Oct. 1 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.
Get ready for another wild ride, Sleepy Heads! Season 3 is shaping up to be a stellar rebound after a shaky sophomore year. Feast your eyes on the episode photos and soak up all the Ichabbie goodness that we will soon behold.
