Sleepy Hollow‘s ever-expanding Season 3 cast is about to get even bigger. Jessica Camacho, who plays Sophie Foster on the supernatural drama, made her Sleepy Hollow debut earlier this month and has now been upgraded to a series regular. The Hollywood Reporter was the first to break the casting news. For those who want to know more about Sophie, The Hollywood Reporter describes Camacho’s character as “a mysterious, sexy and highly intelligence rogue player in the world of high-end artifacts trading who plans on challenging Jenny (Lyndie Greenwood) and Joe (Zach Appelman) in their quest for the Shard of Anubis, a mystical artifact and this season’s Holy Grail.” Camacho’s promotion to series regular is just the latest in a string of casting changes for Sleepy Hollow in Season 3.

Sleepy Hollow‘s Season 2 finale left Ichabod minus his witchy wife and surly, sorcerer son… and musing a fenestella’s worth of unanswered questions.
“Coming out of Season 2, and with a lull in the evil, like Abbie, he was also asking questions about, ‘How do I fulfill my destiny as a Witness and still find a place in the modern world?” says showrunner Clifton Campbell (The Glades), who took the series’ reins after executive producer Mark Goffman left in May.
When the supernatural drama returns tonight (Fox, 9/8c), we’ll begin to learn what Crane and Abbie Mills, his partner in apocalypse avoidance, »
Gross plays Daniel Reynolds, a Quantico-trained and political savvy FBI special agent and Abbie's new boss with whom she's worked before.
Appelman will reprise the role of Joe Corbin, the son of August Corbin (Clancy Brown), a marine who was cursed as a Wendigo. In this season he'll join Jenny to look into his father’s work to help Crane & Abbie.
The third season of the show is undergoing a creative reboot under new show runner Clifton Campbell ("The Glades") who is steering the show back towards the less plot heavy, lighter and more character-centric tone of the show's first season. The series is slated to return October 1st.

USA Network is planning an early 2016 takeover for “Colony,” the family-centric espionage drama from Carlton Cuse and Ryan Condal, the cabler announced Wednesday morning ahead of its Television Critics Association press tour panel.
The thriller, which reunites Cuse with “Lost” costar Josh Holloway and also stars “The Walking Dead’s” Sarah Wayne Callies, will premiere at 10 p.m. Jan. 14 after two hours of the WWE live-action series “Smackdown.” USA promoted the series heavily at Comic-Con, where it offered perks like free Uber rides in branded military vehicles.
USA is also using the Nov. 10 return of its popular comedic reality series “Chrisley Knows Best” as a lead-in for its new Donny Deutsch series “Donny!.” The “soft-scripted” series follows the ad exec and former “Big Idea” host and is meant to take a “satirical look at the media, wealth and modern romance.”
The full premiere schedule is below.

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…

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, »
