Sleepy Hollow fans have the answer they’ve been waiting for: Fox will be bringing back Sleepy Hollow for a fourth season. The supernatural drama spent the final episodes of season three killing off major characters, including lead actress Nicole Beharie who played Abbie Mills. Beharie had wanted off the series but that didn’t lessen the negative response from fans after Abbie was killed off in the season three finale. The death of her character was also thought to have spelled the end for the series because the chemistry between Beharie and Tom Mison (who plays Ichabod Crane) has always been what drives the series. However, the season three ratings were high enough at 4.8 million average viewers that Fox opted to renew the series for another season.

In addition to Mison, Sleepy Hollow stars Lyndie Greenwood as Jenny Mills, Jessica Camacho as Sophie Foster, and Lance Gross as Daniel Reynolds. The series premiered on September 16, 2013 and was co-created by Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci, Len Wiseman, and Phillip Iscove.

The season four plot: Sleepy Hollow returns for a groundbreaking fourth season full of supernatural creatures, inexplicable events and the search for the truth about the lives of Witnesses.
