SLEEPY HOLLOW at PaleyFest: The Producers Tease New Characters in Season 2

March 20, 2014 by  


When SLEEPY HOLLOW’s first season concluded, showrunner Mark Goffman teased that in season 2, “we get to populate the town with a few more characters.” And now that the writers have started crafting season 2, the executive producers teased a little bit of what’s to come during the show’s PaleyFest panel.

“War doesn’t work by himself,” executive producer Roberto Orci teased. “There are a lot of amazing foot soldiers that are coming. Some are familiar and also amazingly original.”

But to make things fair, the good guys will also have a new bonus face that they bring into the fight, too.

“One of the things we wanted to bring to life was who best to be in a war with the horsemen, [so the show is] creating a new creature that actually our team kind of controls,” director/executive producer Len Wiseman explained. “[That creature] is a dangerous creation Headless will actually have to come to face with…[we’ll] create a character that is as scary and evil as Headless.”

How will they go about doing this? The EPs reminded fans that Ichabod, Abbie, and co., have one key item of Headless’ that could be quite useful: his head.

And while there will be a good amount of creatures/supernatural beings that are added into the mix, there will also be a few new human faces in season 2.

“We have some supernatural characters and we have some [human] characters,” Goffman said. “Some people who will be populating the town as well. With Irving incarcerated, I think we’ll have to figure out who will be in charge of the law and order in Sleepy Hollow.”

“And to prosecute [Irving],” Orci added. “This person will be very not on [Irving’s] side. They’ll put [Irving] through the ringer.”

Are you excited for new faces in SLEEPY HOLLOW season 2?
