Sleepy Hollow Renewed for Season 4

at .

Do you think this was part of the prophecy?

Even though Abbie Mills, one of the two biblically prophesied witnesses, lost her life before the Sleepy Hollow Season 3 finally, Season 4 is on the way.

Fox made the decision to renew the supernatural series earlier today.

And in not-so-stunning news, Minority Report and Second Chance have been canceled. Officially.

Honestly, it feels weird finding a photo to promote the new season of Sleepy Hollow featuring only one of the two (former) leads.

It always felt as if Abbie and Ichabod were a team. Abbie grounded Ichabod in his new time frame. They were of one mind.

Much like the fans of Stana Katic on Castle, fans of Nicole Beharie similarly do not see a show without Abbie.

Most people cannot imagine Sleepy Hollow without her presence.

At the time of the finale, showrunner Clifton Campbell told TVLine that, while Beharie wouldn't return to the show as Abbie Mills, there might be "reflections" of her around if the show got a fourth season. 

Whatever that means.

And, here we are. The show is getting a fourth season.

Does anybody really expect Beharie to want to stick around in some reflective capacity? If she wasn't feeling the character while she was Abbie Mills (that was the rumor), why would she feel good about playing a reflection of the character?

The cast of Sleepy Hollow Season 4 will consist of Tom Mison, Lyndie Greenwood, Lance Cross and Jessica Camacho. Nikki Reed, who played Besty Ross, has also left the series.

Also at the time of the finale, the producers noted they had some exciting scenarios and new avenues they wanted to explore. 

I sure hope so, as they're down one witness. The story must take a new turn.

The question is, are you still interested?

Is Tom Mison as Ichabod Crane enough of a draw? Has Lyndie Greenwood as Abbie's sister been given enough to do that she can take Abbie's place?

What new scenario would would grab your attention and keep you tuning in each week?

Sleepy Hollow Quotes

Abbie: Who is he? When's the last time you saw him?
Ichabod: When I cut off his head.

Police Detective: Do you admit to cutting off his head, yes or no?
Ichabod: Nooo. First I shot him, then he rose back up. Cutting off his head seemed the next logical step.
