BreatheCast – Sleepy Hollow returns on prime time as Fox renewed the show for Season 2. An interview with Zap2It, lead actors Tom Mison and Nicole Beharie revealed that the 18-episode season would present more tricky and more difficult challenges for them.
Ichabod’s imprisonment in a coffin and Abby’s asylum in the Season 1 finale left Ichabod and Abby confined in more ways than one, it is expected that their relationship was once again tested. When Zap2It cornered Beharie at Hollywood Forever Cemetery on June 2, the actress said that rebuilding their partnership is a “natural progression.”
“I think, for me, you’d better be different when you come out of Purgatory! If he’s banging on the door, trying to get out of the box, Abby is like, ‘You’re not getting rid of me! I’m here. And we’re going to do this and we’re going to succeed as best we can.’ So I think she is turning into a stronger person, trying to get out,” said the 29-year-old American Violet actress.
On the other hand, Mison’s character has more drama unfolding when Season 2 premieres late Fall, especially since Ichabod’s wife has ran off with another man. “…when you just think about the actual things that Ichabod found out — his wife’s a witch, she knew about everything that’s caused his life to be miserable now, she’s now gone off with her ex — she didn’t choose to — the son he never knew he had is now the Second Horseman of the Apocalypse,” he told Zap2It.
Sleepy Hollow Season 2 premieres on Monday, September 22 at 9 PM on FOX.
