Newswire: Sleepy Hollow loses all of Orlando Jones (not just his head)
If you’re not a Sleepyhead (that’s what the fandom is called) but you’ve always meant to check out Fox’s Sleepy Hollow, good news: it was just renewed for a third season. If, however, your desire to watch hinged on seeing Orlando Jones in the supernatural drama, sorry—Variety reports that Jones will not be a part of the season three cast.
Sleepy Hollow was a surprise hit for Fox when it premiered in 2013, but the second season suffered from too many characters and a deviation from the central relationships between Ichabod Crane (Tom Mison), Abbie Mills (Nicole Beharie), and Jones’ Captain Frank Irving. Season two brought Crane’s wife (a witch, naturally) to town with their daughter, and the show—which had previously been praised for its diverse cast—seemed to be nudging out key players to focus on the Cranes’ marriage.
Believe it or …
