Fans of Fox’s Sleepy Hollow and Bones are going to get a special early Halloween treat when the shows come together for crossover episodes. Fox announced that on October 29, 2015 Bones‘ Brennan (Emily Deschanel) and Booth (David Boreanaz) will meet Sleepy Hollow‘s Ichabod Crane (Tom Mison) and Abbie Mills (Nicole Beharie), and that meeting will lead to a joint investigation.
“When the idea came about to create this crossover event for fans, our writers’ room was immediately energized,” said Clifton Campbell, executive producer/showrunner of Sleepy Hollow. “The creative freedom to merge these two worlds which, at face value, seem so different; but at their core have such striking similarities – mystery, intrigue and methodical deduction, wrapped up in such strong character partnerships – was a challenge that we all welcomed, and we believe that fans of both series will be very satisfied by the result. It was a terrific collaborative experience across the board and we are eager to see the fan reaction to Ichabod and Abbie working alongside Brennan and Booth.”
“The Bones/Sleepy Hollow crossover is like a great episode of The X-Files, where the Bones hour is the Scully, logic-based perspective and the Sleepy Hollow hour is more Fox Mulder-esque,” stated Michael Peterson, executive producer of Bones. “Put them together, and it’s going to be a great two-hour event that fans of both programs are going to love.”
Here’s the details on the special October 29th crossover event:
“On Bones (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT), the grisly discovery of human remains lead Brennan and Booth on a hunt for clues, during which they encounter Ichabod Crane and Abbie Mills, searching for answers of their own. Realizing that they are after the same evidence, they team up to solve the mystery. Then, immediately following on Sleepy Hollow (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT), the intrigue continues as Ichabod’s old nemesis is back from the dead. Ichabod and Abbie need advanced forensic help and expertise to stop him and turn to Brennan and Booth to unlock 18th century secrets using 21st century science.”
