James McDaniel joins ‘Sleepy Hollow’ season 3 as Abbie, Jenny’s father

Abbie (Nicole Beharie) and Jenny’s (Lyndie Greenwood) father is coming to Sleepy Hollow as reported by TVGuide.com.

“James McDaniel will play Ezra Mills in at least one episode when the Fox drama returns next year. Ezra has been estranged from his daughters ever since their childhood, when he abandoned them with their mother who was soon after institutionalized. Now Ezra has returned and wants to become a part of his daughters’ lives,” their report states.

He recently recurred on Orange Is the New Black.

Sleepy Hollow has hit a ratings valley, falling below a 1.0 ratings in October, but hasn’t been cancelled….yet.

Shows are getting more of a chance to prove themselves, noted Joe Saltzman, professor at USC Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism. He said that networks are aware of the greater options for television shows.

“The consumer no longer goes to the three networks to see what’s on the air. They use their DVR and streaming to see whatever they want whenever they want to,” Saltzman told the Los Angeles Times.

“In this modern era, it is very unlikely for one program to get an order of 26 episodes,” Saltzman said. “Orders are usually five to 10 to a dozen episodes. And if the show hits, such as ‘Empire,’ the studio or network can order up a new batch of episodes, promote them and put them on whenever they want to.”

Sleepy Hollow‘s midseason finale airs Thursday at 8/7c on Fox.
