SLEEPY HOLLOW: Tom Mison on Fan Support and His Season 3 Wishes

March 23, 2015 by  


It’s been a month since SLEEPY HOLLOW ended its second season, and in that time, the show has been renewed for a third season and nabbed a new showrunner.

“There was a lot of concern from viewers about season 2 — that it had drifted away from [what made it special in] season 1,” SLEEPY HOLLOW star Tom Mison (Ichabod) acknowledged. “A choice was made, a path was taken, to explore certain aspects of these characters. And we’ve done that. We’ve got to know them through these circumstances, and now these circumstances are over, and now we’ll explore a different part of them, and they’ll have a different quest, a different journey.”

While the show’s renewal was in jeopardy, fans rallied to support it, including pushing the hashtag #RenewSleepyHollow on Twitter — a fact that was noticed by Mison.

“It’s incredibly flattering,” he said. “I survived the shoot [of SLEEPY HOLLOW season 2], but I will say, I survived only just…it was particularly grueling, and long, and to see it’s paid off, that people still hold it very, very close to their hearts means an awful lot. To see a real outpouring of support, it makes it all worth it.”

For Mison, one of his season 2 highlights was something a bit unexpected.

“Give me Timothy Busfield (Ben Franklin), naked, and flying a kite, and I’m a happy man,” he laughed. “To explore Benjamin Franklin, what a treat!”

“I hope…we’ll see much more of him [in season 3],” Mison continued. “In fact, I have pitched an episode that I hope gets in: I’d like to see an 18th century heist with Ichabod, Jefferson, and Franklin. Mainly because I’d like to see Steven Weber (Thomas Jefferson) and Tim Busfield bickering while picking a safe. That’s my dream.”

For modern Ichabod, Mison’s dreams are a bit more grounded.

“I do think we need to get him a motorbike,” he said. “I would like to see the Ichabbie-mobile. Maybe Abbie riding the motorbike and Ichabod riding in the side car, that’s how they get around.”

Well, stranger things have happened…

What do you hope happens in SLEEPY HOLLOW season 3?

    So glad for Season 3!!!
    I love the mixture of modern and Revolutionary!!!
    It’s a treat to see Ichabod and Abbie wade through circumstances, all the while keeping their personalities and ideals.
    Looking forward to more Sleepy Hollow!
    (PS If Tom Mison ever recorded some or all of the Canterbury Tales in Middle English, I’d buy the CD. His voice is very wonderful.)
    And so glad to see the Mills sisters again.
    This is one show where race simply is left in the dust, and great characters and story-telling prevail.

    Annie and Ihacbod getting closer and a Harley would be kool.

    Seeing Abbie and Ichabod begin a romance together. Light at first then blossom there after. They look good together. I love the show!

    I am so happy Sleepy Hollow was renewed! I love this show! I love how Abbie and Ichabod put their heads together to solve seemingly unnatural unsolvable problems! It would have been a horrific shame on broacanceleddcast TV, especially Fox-TV if the show was canceled.

    I love the show so much congrats tom

    I love Ichabod and Abbie as much as the next SH fan, but I love the IDEA of a romance between them rather than an actual romance. DO NOT PUT THEM TOGETHER! That is a recipe for disaster…or cancellation. It’s the tension that keeps us coming back.

  11. CAL on March 25th, 2015 12:20 pm

    The show would not benefit from a romance between Ichabod and Abbie. Putting the main characters in a relationship has ruined many a good show. MORE HEADLESS HORSEMAN PLEASE!!! The show got away from him. And humanizing him so early did not help matters either. And some don’t agree, but bring back Katrina, I liked her character.

  12. FrannT on March 25th, 2015 7:50 pm

    I agree, the tease of Abbie and Ichabod is far more interesting than the actual romance would be. I’m sooooo happy about season 3, but please NO MORE KATRINA!

  13. Sha on April 3rd, 2015 2:12 am

    So happy that this show is renewed!!! It is truly unique and exciting to watch!!! There is wonderful chemistry between the characters of Abbie and Ichabod!!! I enjoy how they vibe as Ichabod adjusts to life in this century, while solving mysteries. I truly adore the comedy in this show; all while providing drama, action, and mystery! There is an untold LOVE STORY here…yes the tension between the two characters is nice…but it does need to EVOLVE!!! AND did I mention that there is CHEMISTRY with these two…LOL!!!

  14. Mari on April 3rd, 2015 6:34 am

    OMG- I’m super thrilled to find out that there will be a Season 3. Can’t wait now!!!

  15. Anita April 5th on April 5th, 2015 1:07 am

    I love this show can’t wait for season 3 to start.

    We LOVE Sleepy Hollow! So you are having a hard time thinking up something new? I have an idea, but first lets recap Katrina is dead, Henry is dead, the Chief got his soul back, the headless horseman got his head back, and that evil side kick of Henry’s is dead. SO – since all of these characters are from the past, except for the Chief, the spells or killings can only last until the next full moon (unbeknowns to everyone else). They each reserface meaner than ever and Abby & Ichabod are digging into the books even deeper to find a way to rid the world of these forever. The police chief, being from this generation remains normal and with his soul in tact. He even goes back to work as the chief again.

    I love this great show, it indeed interesting, it touched every aspect of life both natural and physical even religion references was not left out… Gonna buy the the next seasons

  18. Castielle Elorea on April 28th, 2015 12:31 pm

    Best quote of the show so far — Ichabod Crane: [At the wheel of Abby’s SUV] “I have faced many enemies on horseback. Horsemen without heads. Even discovered my own son is the apocalyptic horseman of war. Thus, how challenging must it be to guide the power of 300 horses using only one’s own right foot?”
