I will be perfectly honest; I have not seen the Sleepy Hollow TV series. It has been one of the series that I have been meaning to watch for some time, but I have still not seen an episode.

I have heard excellent things about the first series and somewhat mixed responses to the second. The series is expected to return for its third season in the fall, with an 18-episode run.

However, it seems that this new series, will be without one of the main characters. Orlando Jones, who plays the part of Captain Frank Irving, has announced that he will not return for Series three. No reason has been given for Jones’ departure, though I’m sure we will find out in the coming days.

This is not the only change to befall Sleepy Hollow. It was also announced that the current show runner, Mark Goffman, would be stepping down and Clifton Campbell will be taking up his position.

In response to this, Fox President, David Madden, stated: “Sleepy Hollow is truly inventive television… The talented producers – led by Alex, Bob, Len and Heather – along with the brilliant cast, anchored by Nicole and Tom, have created a fantastic world that brings ‘history’ to life with compelling and vibrant storytelling. I had the pleasure of working with Clifton on both The Glades and White Collar. He is an excellent producer, and we can’t wait to see what this team has in store for Season three.”

These are two major shake-ups to occur on show in very quick succession. Only time will tell what effects they will have on the show.

My name is James and I am a long time fan of Movies, TV and Comics. I am currently a student, wrapping up my education at Aberystwyth University. I have an undergraduate degree in film and television and I’m working on my Masters in scriptwriting. My personal favourite comic character is the Green Lantern (Hal Jordan), and I view the film adaptation as one of the most horrifying experiences I have had in a movie theatre. As far as film and television go, I am usually willing to give any genre a try, as long as the project is well executed.
