Hallelujah!!!!! Sleepy Heads, we finally have the promo we’ve been waiting for. After months of begging Fox to #PromoteSleepyHollow, the network has released the first trailer for Season 3 and it is a beautiful sight. Ichabbie’s back and better than ever. Watch the trailer and relish it for a moment. Did you take it all in? Good. Now, let’s get to breaking it down, shall we?
Ichabod Crane is holding lingerie! Be still our squee-ing hearts, this is too awkwardly adorable. Have no fear, Miss/Leftenant/Agent Mills, it’s not what it looks like. Oh my, Crane, what have you gotten yourself into? The look on Abbie’s face is priceless. Clearly the Ichabbie fun is making a huge comeback this season, which is wonderful because we missed having a steady dose of their banter amidst the apocalyptic drama. Last season often put Ichabod and Abbie at odds, with Katrina and Henry always being a thorn in Crane’s side and whatnot, so it’s great to see that Team Witness is unquestionably on the same page in Season 3.
The fast paced promo is appropriately set to the new hit pop song “Ex’s and Oh’s” by Elle King. It is a fun little wink at the fact that we’ll be meeting Crane’s former flame, Betsy Ross. Plus, she’s haunted by those darn “Ex’s and Oh’s”. Last season Ella Henderson sang of being haunted by demons, this Season its Ex-s. Given everything we’ve been hearing about Miss Minxy Ross, this song would totally be her jam. Right?! Just take a look at her in FOX’s new set of promotional cast photos (included in the slideshow). That costume is functional yet sexy. Pants you can leap bounds in with a bust-enhancing bustier on top. And let’s not forget that sword. Betsy is equipped to turn heads and then chop them off. Yikes! “She was my partner…in crime.” Crane quips. The Mills Sisters’ expressions say exactly what we’re all thinking. What kind of naughty secrets is the prim and proper Crane hiding? Sigh. There is so much goodness crammed into 30 seconds.
We get a quick peek of a hooded Pandora in the promo and we can see her tattooed arms in the cast photo. Those markings must be of some great significance. It’ll be interesting to see exactly what kind of role Pandora will play this season. Is she a friend or foe? Speaking of foes, we also see snapshots of some more spooky monsters. Once again, “Sleepy Hollow’s” extremely talented make-up artist, Corey Castellano, has done extraordinary work. We have chills already and can’t wait to see these creepy creatures up-close.
The baritone voiceover promises: “Secrets from the past lead to the discovery of something new.” All the info we’ve gathered so far (refresh your memory on the details HERE) reveals that people from the past will be mixing things up this season. Betsy Ross and Agent Reynolds played personal parts in Ichabod and Abbie’s respective histories. Will they open up old wounds? Pandora is a mythological force to be reckoned with, so we can only imagine what kind of ancient history she’ll reveal and possibly revive throughout the season.
“Sleepy Hollow” is setting us up for a new incredible journey. We are very anxious to go on another wild ride with our favorite dynamic duo and the rest of Team Witness. What do you think of the new promo and images? Share your thoughts below and get started on capturing those GIF-able moments.
“Sleepy Hollow” Season 3 premieres this Thursday, Oct. 1 at 9 p.m. on FOX.
