‘Sleepy Hollow’ season 3 set, Clifton Chapman replaces Mark Goffman as showrunner

Fox has given the renewal to Sleepy Hollow, with The Glades creator Clifton Campbell on board as executive producer and new showrunner, replacing Mark Goffman, who exited after two seasons.

Katia Winter SLeepy HollowRatings have fallen off greatly, from a eight million viewership to approximately half that. The 18-episode third-season will pickup with a clean slate, John Noble’s character has been defeated and Katia Winter’s Katrina appears to be lost.

“We want to get back to something that feels a little bit more episodic in nature, it has become overly serialized,” Fox TV Group chairman Dana Walden acknowledged at TCA in January. “We are trying to return the fun to it a little bit.”

Sleepy Hollow has been a signature drama for Fox and a lucrative property for the company, with strong international sales for sibling 20th TV. And it has had a lot of support at the network,” Deadline wrote.

Fox entertainment president David Madden called it “truly inventive television.” He is believed to have played a role in bringing in Campbell as new showrunner — as president of Fox TV Studios, he worked with Campbell on FtvS’ The Glades, which Campbell created and ran, and White Collar, on which he served as co-executive producer.

“He is an excellent producer, and we can’t wait to see what this team has in store for Season 3,” Madden said.

Sleepy Hollow was co-created by Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci, Phillip Iscove and Len Wiseman. Stars Tom Mison, Nicole Beharie, Orlando Jones and Lyndie Greenwood are all expected to return.
