Fox’s David Madden explains ‘Sleepy Hollow’ season 4 renewal, the new setting and new stories

At Fox’s TCA session, the network’s executives were asked about the decision to renew supernatural drama Sleepy Hollow for a fourth season following soft ratings and the controversial exit of female Nicole Beharie, whose character was killed off in the Season 3 finale.

“This was obviously a very hard conversation,” Fox President David Madden said. “Crane (Tom Mison) and Abbie were the spine of the show in a lot of ways, so it was difficult to figure out if it was the right thing to do, to continue or not. But the producers pitched us an array of new characters and new situations for Crane to get into.”

Madden confirmed some rumors that the show’s setting is also changing in season 4, now moving to Washington D.C., which opens new storyline possibilities, and Mison’s TV star power.

Madden indicated that the decision to bring back the show seems to be paying off so far. “The first seven scripts are really fun,” he said. “We think there’s a lot of good new stories to tell.”

“It’s always surprising to see how the reflections of one character or another can influence the show moving forward,” Clifton Campbell added about Abbie Mills

Rachel Melvin, Jerry MacKinnon and Oona Yaffe are all the latest to be added to the cast which includes Mison and Janina Gavankar, who plays a woman named Diana. Former Justified star Jeremy Davies has been cast as “Malcolm Dreyfuss, whom the network describes as “an eccentric and outspoken tech mogul who became a billionaire before the age of 30…and has since been seeking other worlds to conquer.”

While there is no set date, the Sleepy Hollow Season 4 premiere is anticipated to air on Fox by early 2017
