The wildly popular drama Sleepy Hollow returns on Sept. 21 for its sophomore season and is ready to pile on the twists. Ichabod (Tom Mison), Abbie (Nicole Beharie), Frank (Orlando Jones) and more are back, and we can’t wait to see what crazy direction the show goes this season. Here’s 5 spoiler-y tidbits to look forward to! Buckle up, it’s about to get nuts.
‘Sleepy Hollow’ Season Two Spoilers
1. Evil takes hold.
At the end of last season, Ichabod found himself trapped in a box, while Abbie was stuck in purgatory. In the new season, these two do manage to find a way out, but are instantly greeted by evil.
They’ll be dealing with the Sin-Eater (and son to Ichabod and Katrina) Henry Parish (John Noble), the Moloch and more.
Will Ichabod and Abbie be able to save themselves and their loved ones?
2. Expect the unexpected.
“I really think people are going to be shocked by how we start up,” executive producer Mark Goffman said in a preview. “They’ll think one thing is going on, and in typical Sleepy Hollow manner, flip it on its head.”
3. There’s flashbacks galore.
Ichabod’s relationship with George Washington was so yesterday. This season, we’ll see Ichabod’s interaction with another founding father! “We get to learn more about his relationship with founding fathers this season,” Tom explained in a preview. “We see Benjamin Franklin, played by the brilliant Timothy Busfield.”
4. Ichabod and Abbie’s relationship is explored.
We continue to hold out hope that Ichabod and Abbie will eventually realize their true feelings for each other, and their relationship will be further explored in the new season.
“Their relationship is at the core of everything we do,” executive producer Mark Goffman told TVLine. However, “There are going to be some real trust issues [this season].”
Well, Ichabod’s wife Katrina is now in the picture and she will “drive a wedge between Crane and Abbie,” TV Guide reports.
5. New details on Abbie’s past.
We’ve already gotten a huge glimpse into Ichabod’s life in flashbacks, and it looks like we’ll getting a deeper look into Abbie’s past.
“We sort of start to unearth what’s going on with her family, her mother, her sister, her history, how she came to be a witness, how [Abbie and Ichabod are] connected,” Nicole told TV Guide. “And I think in the process of doing that, they realize what’s making them stronger in a way,” Beharie reveals.
Sleepy Hollow’s second season premieres Sept. 22 at 9 p.m. ET on FOX.
