'Sleepy Hollow'

Posted on

How can last fall’s sleeper hit recover after a finale that left nearly every character in mortal peril? Simple: The premiere will ”pick up two years later,” according to co-creator Roberto Orci. Wait. What?! ”No, I’m just kidding,” he continues. ”We’re not going to cheat that way.” (Phew.) Instead, Orci promises a tightly planned season that will ratchet up the show’s signature crazy quotient by raising its monster game. These exclusive sketches show three of the beasts who’ll be spooking Ichabod Crane (Tom Mison) and Abbie Mills (Nicole Beharie) this year: a beefed-up Moloch, who’s preparing for war (”He wants to look his best in case he manages to set foot completely into our world,” says Orci); a terrifying take on the Pied Piper; and the Kindred, who’s sort of like Sleepy‘s version of Frankenstein’s monster. ”It’s great when you have a Big Bad who can help you,” Orci teases. ”But also, you can’t control some things when you unleash them.”
