SLEEPY HOLLOW: Orlando Jones Won’t Be in Season 3

SLEEPY HOLLOW has lost yet another cast member: Orlando Jones (Frank Irving) won’t return for the upcoming third season, Variety is reporting. (Reps for the show have yet to respond to a request for comment. Update, 1:12 PM: Fox has no comment on the report.)

The show has undergone a massive overhaul in recent months. Not only were Katia Winter’s Katrina and John Noble’s Henry written out, but the series also lost its showrunner, Mark Goffman. (Clifton Campbell was named SLEEPY’s new showrunner when the show was renewed for season 3.)

That leaves only Tom Mison (Ichabod), Nicole Beharie (Abbie), and Lyndie Greenwood (Jenny) signed on for SLEEPY HOLLOW season 3.

Irving’s fate was very much up in the air for much of season 2, as he, unwillingly, signed away his soul to Henry, and then “died.” But by the end of season 2, he was whole, and seemed to be a part of the team.

As one of the few characters remaining when season 2 ended, Mison noted at the time that the four characters would bond together as a new family unit.
“At the end of the finale, you see him, effectively, with his new family: Abbie, Jenny, and Irving,” Mison said. “They’re really the only things he has in his life now. Everything is gone now. When he came out of the grave in the pilot, pretty early on, he knows that although his wife is purgatory, there is still that connection. Now he has nothing. Except for this new family. I think that will also be a fun thing to explore.”
What do you think of Jones no longer being a part of SLEEPY HOLLOW?
