SLEEPY HOLLOW: Heather Kadin Previews Season 3’s Big Bad, Mining Abbie/Ichabod’s Relationship, and More
While we're still months out from SLEEPY HOLLOW returning to our television screens, the writers are currently hard at work crafting the upcoming third season. And though the second season went through a few rough spots, the writers are aiming to go back to what worked, versus trying to completely reinvent the show. "I don't think it should feel as much as changes, as a return to what we loved in season 1," SLEEPY HOLLOW executive producer Heather Kadin shared. "Obviously there are changes in the sense Katrina's not there, Henry's not there, Irving's not there. But we really want to bring back the fun in the relationship between Abbie and Crane." "I think the big focus is going to be, how do we get back to what people love?" she continued. "How do we give Abbie a real journey? How do we give Crane a real journey? How are those things both independent and complimentary of one another? And we also have to expand the world, so what are we saying about Sleepy Hollow as a place, as a mythology, but also telling closed-ended stories?" Though there were indications earlier this year SLEEPY HOLLOW might end up more episodic, Kadin indicated there shouldn't be any sort of drastic shift coming.

WAYWARD PINES: Chad Hodge Teases ‘Get Ready for the Ride of Your Life’
[caption id="attachment_82047" align="aligncenter" width="590"] Cr: Frank Ockenfels/FOX[/caption] Fox is debuting WAYWARD PINES -- the network's newest event series -- tonight, and the twisted drama (based off the Blake Crouch trilogy) is deliciously fun. The show follows a Secret Service agent, Ethan Burke (played by Matt Dillion), who ends up in Wayward Pines while trying to track down a couple of missing agents. (One of whom is his ex-lover/former partner.) Unfortunately for him, once he arrives, he finds out he can't actually leave the town...and the residents have to obey some very specific rules while they're staying there. While the series sets up a fair amount of questions about what's going on, WAYWARD PINES also pays off with answers well before the ten-episode arc ends...and they're not the sci-fi-esque answers you might expect. "Everything adds up," WAYWARD PINES showrunner Chad Hodge shared of the eventual reveal, which remains the same as what played out in the book series. "And it's so mind-blowing, and it's actually something that could happen. It's very grounded. There's a huge payoff, and absolutely worth it." I spoke with Hodge about getting involved with the WAYWARD PINES world, the long road to air, and more...
