It’s official: Fox’s BONES and SLEEPY HOLLOW will cross over on Thursday, October 29th.

So how the heck is this going to work? The network released episode teases for both hours: “On BONES (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT), the grisly discovery of human remains lead Brennan (Emily Deschanel) and Booth (David Boreanaz) on a hunt for clues, during which they encounter Ichabod Crane (Tom Mison) and Abbie Mills (Nicole Beharie), searching for answers of their own. Realizing that they are after the same evidence, they team up to solve the mystery. Then, immediately following on SLEEPY HOLLOW (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT), the intrigue continues as Ichabod’s old nemesis is back from the dead. Ichabod and Abbie need advanced forensic help and expertise to stop him and turn to Brennan and Booth to unlock 18th century secrets using 21st century science.”

“When the idea came about to create this crossover event for fans, our writers’ room was immediately energized,” new SLEEPY HOLLOW showrunner Clifton Campbell said in a statement. “The creative freedom to merge these two worlds which, at face value, seem so different; but at their core have such striking similarities – mystery, intrigue and methodical deduction, wrapped up in such strong character partnerships – was a challenge that we all welcomed, and we believe that fans of both series will be very satisfied by the result. It was a terrific collaborative experience across the board and we are eager to see the fan reaction to Ichabod and Abbie working alongside Brennan and Booth.”

“The BONES/SLEEPY HOLLOW crossover is like a great episode of THE X-FILES, where the BONES hour is the Scully, logic-based perspective and the SLEEPY HOLLOW hour is more Fox Mulder-esque,” said new BONES co-showrunner Michael Peterson. “Put them together, and it’s going to be a great two-hour event that fans of both programs are going to love.”

Now that you know what’s planned, are you excited for the BONES/SLEEPY HOLLOW crossover?

    After almost jumping the shark so many times in the past, if you have to do it, you may as well do it right. Jump the zombie-shark.
    But no, I’m not excited. Hovering somewhere between disgust and disinterest, I think…

    Excited? Not in the least. this is an atrocity. Two shows so distinct on their foundations (hard science/Bones vs magical/Sleepy Hollow) there is NO decent way they can cross. They are doing nothing but throwing SH into the toilet. They already did that sadly with Bones
