Sleepy Hollow Season 4 Cast

Sleepy Hollowis going to look completely different in season four. In addition to Beharie, season three regulars Zach Appelman (Joe Corbin), Nikki Reed (Betsy Ross), Shannyn Sossamon (Pandora), Lance Gross (Daniel Reynolds), and Jessica Camacho (Sophie Foster) have all left the show. 

Tom Mison (Ichabod Crane) and Lyndie Greenwood (Jenny Mills) will be back. As for other former cast members, The Headless Horseman (Neil Jackson) will be back at some point in season four and it was just announced that John Noble will be returning in season four, presumably as Ichabod’s late son Jeremy/Henry Parrish…

Former True Blood star Janina Gavankar joins the cast as Diana, the new hot-headed badge with whom Tom Mison’s Ichabod Crane will partner, battling supernatural threats and occasionally each other, since she happens to be a staunch skeptic.

Speaking to TVLine about what that dynamic will look like, Mison said:

[Diana] has just lost her partner, and doesn’t believe in the supernatural world, and is thrust into it with a man from 250 years ago. That might sound a little familiar from maybe three years ago. So she, having lost her partner, and Ichabod loses his… there is a hole that needs to be filled, whether they will admit it or not. Janina and I seem to have found something quite nice, where we don’t want to fall straight into each other’s arms and be partners. And hopefully — I haven’t seen any episodes yet — but hopefully, that reads.

Former Lost fan favorite Jeremy Davies has also jumped onboard as a villain, playing a malevolent tech mogul named Malcom Dreyfuss. Additionally, cross-genre Fox network synergy will see Masterchef Junior contestant Oona Yaffe join the series to play Diana’s daughter Molly Thomas.

Jerry MacKinnon (Empire) will appear as Jake Wells, an “eager but slightly obsessive research analyst who works in a forgotten federal archive cataloging reports of supernatural activity.” He and Crane will become friends. Rachel Melvin (Awkward) will appear as engineering prodigy Alex Norwood, someone who works with Jake in the supernatural archives. 

As for former star Nicole Beharie, she’s recently jumped aboard a film remake of Jacob’s Ladder. However, showrunner Clifton Campbell hinted to TVLine after the airing of the April Season 3 finale that, despite her character Abbie Mills being “gone,” that Beharie could still return for guest spots – intriguingly enough, just not as Abbie Mills.

Consequently, the pitch that apparently so intrigued the big brass at Fox may very well have involved a unique manifestation of Nicole Beharie’s former Abbie Mills character, potentially reinvented as someone (or something) else for sporadic spots in Season 4.

Sleepy Hollow Season 4 Trailer

Sleepy Hollowis nearly unrecognizable in this first look at season four. The show has lost protagonist Abbie (Nicole Beharie), cast a new leading lady in Janina Gavankar, and relocated to Washington D.C. That’s right: Sleepy Hollowno longer takes place in Sleepy Hollow.

The promo is heavy on the supernatural action, while also introducing Gavankar’s Agent Diana Thomas. Apparently, she hasn’t binge-watched the first three seasons of the show. “Demons don’t exist,” she says in the trailer. Boy is she in for a rude awakening. Check out the promo below…

Sleepy Hollow Season 4 Release Date

Sleepy Hollowseason 4 premiered on January 6th, 2017 at 9 pm.

Sleepy Hollow Season 4 Renewal

At the Television Critics Association summer press tour, Fox entertainment president David Madden revealed the mindset behind this most surprising of reprieves for Sleepy Hollow. It certainly wasn’t an easy decision, especially with so many downsides to consider with Tom Mison’s lost-in-time Colnonial-era-sent slayer of the supernatural Ichabod Crane seemingly left with little purpose. As Madden explains of the state of the series after the exit of Beharie’s Abbie Mills:

“This was obviously a very hard conversation. Crane and Abbie were the spine of the show in a lot of ways, so it was difficult to figure out if it was 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.”

Presumably, the ideas pitched by the producers were intriguing enough to make Madden and the rest of the Fox brass take note and consider the formerly buzz-heavy Sleepy Hollow – undoubtedly damaged by multiple seasons of sloppily executed storylines and sagging ratings – as a budget-heavy branding that is still worth salvaging. The oft-discussed upcoming overhaul of the series – migrating the show’s setting away from its titular small New York town to Washington D.C. – was pitched to Fox execs, as were the initial scripts. As Madden explains:  

The first seven scripts are really fun. We think there’s a lot of good new stories to tell.
