Sleepy Hollow will be without one of its core cast members when the series returns for its upcoming third season. As first reported by Variety, Orlando Jones is leaving the Fox supernatural drama ahead of Season 3. Jones played Captain Frank Irving on Sleepy Hollow. Although Frank initially didn’t believe Ichabod (Tom Mison) and Abbie (Nicole Beharie) about the supernatural events happening in town during the show’s first season, he quickly became their ally and continued to be one throughout Season 2. Sleepy Hollow was a major critical and commercial success for Fox during its first season, but the show saw a major decline in both its ratings and in critics’ praise during its uneven second season. Although a third season of Sleepy Hollow was by no means a guarantee, the show was picked up for Season 3 back in March, but a new showrunner, Clifton Campbell (The Glades), was…

Try not to lose your heads, “Sleepy Hollow” fans — Variety has learned that Orlando Jones (who plays fan-favorite character Frank Irving) will not be returning to the Fox show for its upcoming third season.
Jones isn’t the only one exiting the series after season two — showrunner Mark Goffman departed the supernatural drama ahead of its season three renewal and will be replaced by Clifton Campbell (“The Glades”).
“Sleepy Hollow” was co-created by Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci, Phillip Iscove and Len Wiseman. It stars Tom Mison as Ichabod Crane and Nicole Beharie as Abbie Mills as two unlikely allies who must band together to prevent the apocalypse. Kurtzman, Orci, Wiseman, Campbell and Heather Kadin serve as executive producers on the new season.
Fox had no comment.

Following a ruling last month that the Television Academy would only consider half hour shows eligible for the comedy category at the Emmys, a panel of nine analysts have now begun handing down the rulings for exemptions in the selection process. The panel, which was set up to determine the category assignment of hour-long shows that appealed their placement in drama, has now ruled, as per Variety, that the Fox show Glee, the Showtime series Shameless, and the CW series Jane The Virgin can compete as comedies at the upcoming primetime Emmys. The decision will apply to all categories, from Acting to Directing, and so on.
One show that notably wasn’t granted a waiver, however, is the Netflix serial Orange Is The New Black. The series, which revolves around the inhabitants of a women’s prison, was categorised as a comedy at last year’s Primetime Emmys, where it picked up three wins. »

Good news, Sleepy Hollow fans: season three, with a new showrunner and production location, has just been confirmed by Fox…
After an interesting second season - which saw a shift towards episodic storytelling rather than serialised - Sleepy Hollow has now been picked up for a third season by Fox.
Although showrunner Mark Goffman has departed the show (he took a deal at CBS), fans will surely still be excited to see it continue. The Glades’ Clifton Campbell has been handed the task of steering the next batch of episodes.
Sleepy Hollow joins a Fox 2015-16 slate that is already getting rather full – Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Family Guy, The Simpsons, Empire and Gotham have all already been confirmed for further episodes, too.
There hasn’t been an announcement to state otherwise, so at the moment we would expect the 18-episode format of season 2 to remain intact. We would expect all the core cast to return, »
Earlier this month, Sleepy Hollow showrunner Mark Goffman left the series after two seasons. The show's ratings were way down in season two and word was that the network would cancel Sleepy Hollow if a suitable replacement showrunner couldn't be found.
A supernatural police drama, Sleepy Hollow follows Ichabod Crane (Tom Mison), a patriot who was killed 230 years ago. He finds himself resurrected in modern day and partners with a female police lieutenant. Unfortunately, the Headless Horseman has also returned. The cast includes Nicole Beharie, Orlando Jones, Katia Winter, Clancy Brown, John Cho, and Richard Cetrone.
Here's the renewal press release:
"Sleepy Hollow" Picked Up »
Fox has committed to more outings of its mystery-adventure series Sleepy Hollow, as today the network announced that the show has been granted a season 3 renewal. The third season has been earmarked for 18 episodes which are set to further explore Ichabod Crane’s relationship with Lieutenant Abbie Mills. It will also mark the introduction of new showrunner Clifton Campbell.
Campbell, creator of The Glades, takes over the position from Mark Groffman. The former showrunner is thought to have exited due to poor ratings during its second season, which saw a staggering 40% drop following a promising debut season.
With a fresh set of eyes serving the tale of Crane and his cohorts, Fox’s President of Entertainment David Madden is confident that the show will continue to break the mould:
‘Sleepy Hollow’ is truly inventive television. The talented producers -led by Alex, Bob, Len and Heather- along with the brilliant cast, »

Ichabod and Abbie will live to fight evil another day, as it was announced today by Fox that Sleepy Hollow has been renewed for a third season. Like the show’s second season, Sleepy Hollow Season 3 will consist of 18 episodes, but unlike the show’s first two seasons, the series will be headed by a new showrunner, as Fox has agreed to a deal that will have The Glades‘ Clifton Campbell taking the reigns.

In addition to being the creator of A&E’s The Glades, Campbell has also served as an executive producer on White Collar, »
