Almost Human and Sleepy Hollow start dates

News Louisa Mellor 27 Jun 2013 - 07:30

Fox has announced its autumn schedule, including the premiere dates for new shows, Almost Human and Sleepy Hollow...

Those waiting to see JJ Abrams' new future-set crime series Almost Human are going to have to wait a little longer than usual, as Fox announces that the sci-fi show won't premiere until Monday the 4th of November. The idea, we assume, is to give the prestige show room to breathe outside of the cluster of new September and October season returns and new pilots.

Almost Human is set to take over from Bones' ninth season slot, which returns on Monday the 16th of September before moving across to Fridays in early November to make room for the Karl Urban sci-fi vehicle.

Piggy-backing on Bones' audience will be Sleepy Hollow, which also kicks off on Fox on the 16th of September.

Finally, animation fans will be able to tune in to new episodes of The SimpsonsBob's Burgers, Family Guy and American Dad on Sunday the 29th of September.

We'll bring you a comprehensive list of geek show start dates as soon as the networks have released all the info.

They're making a whole series out of the Ichabod Crane concept??

Yes, and it actually looks really good. I don't know how it will hold as a series but the trailer hinted at good things to come.

Brilliant. I'll have to keep an eye out for that.

It looks very good in advance. It's from Orci and Kurtzman who also thought up 'Fringe' with J.J. Abrams, so this could be good.

I'm not sure about Sleepy Hollow as a concept - doesn't the whole "destined to fight monsters" idea need a rest for a while?

In the last 10 years we've had Buffy, Angel, Supernatural & Grimm (and probably more I can't think of) do we need another right now?

If you've not had a chance to view the Sleepy Hollow trailer then google it, I can't see it lasting more than half a dozen episodes before being pulled, it looks corny as hell. There's a scene where the headless horseman turns around and a policeman says "I wonder if he can hear us?"

I had heard reports that Almost Human was coming onto TV screens in Q1 2014, so hearing that it will premier in November, I am very happy. I look at the show as a Fringe-replacement: same writers, same directors, same production team, (almost) same genre. I can't wait.
