‘Sleepy Hollow’ season 3 adds ‘True Blood ‘star Janina Gavankar as Ichabod’s partner

Fox’s supernatural drama, Sleepy Hollow, appears to have cast a new partner for Tom Mison’s Ichabod Crane. Deadline reports that True Blood alum Janina Gavankar is set for a recurring role as Diana, a new character for season 4.

Gavankar replaces Nicole Beharie, who portrayed Detective Abbie Mills, the character who was killed off in a shocking end of Season 3.

“Gavankar’s Diana is described as a single mom and former military officer who’s currently a Special Agent for Homeland Security. She’s got a tough, take-charge personality, punctuated by a wry sense of humor. She also has a softer, more caring side which emerges when she’s with her young daughter,” notes Deadline.

“Initially she doesn’t believe in the supernatural, and that creates conflicts with Crane. They also clash because they have different ways of approaching missions: While he’s methodical and research-focused, she’s active and task-oriented, which is reflective of her military training. She rarely talks about the father of her child—a person she cared for, even though she never saw a life together with him—but she’s fiercely devoted to her daughter and will do anything to protect her, an instinct Crane appreciates. After her partner goes down in the line of duty, she and Crane will find common ground in their shared sense of loss. And the two of them will quickly realize they have another important point of connection—though not one anyone would expect at first.”

Gavankar played Luna Garza on True Blood and most recently starred as Meredith Bose in The Mysteries of Laura.

Sleepy Hollow Season 4 is slated to premiere in early 2017.
