Sleepy Hollow Takes Break - Will Return 11/4 with John Noble

Five episodes in and I think we can safely say that Sleepy Hollow is a hit, so fans are not pleased the show will be taking a break for the next couple of weeks due to the World Series. 

Next week Fox will rerun the pilot episode (which, according to our entirely unscientific poll here, seems to be the fan favorite), then Blood Moon the week after that.  In between, there will be a Sleepy Hollow marathon of all 5 eps on Saturday, October 26th starting at 1pm on FX. 

Plus, we have one more #SleepyFriday, with the re-airing of "John Doe" this Friday.  If you are on Twitter, be sure to check in while watching -- some of the producers and cast have been live tweeting and answering fan questions, which has been great fun.  Sadly, after that, Fox plans to discontinue the Friday re-runs, leaving many despondent fans.  If you are one of them, you can sign this petition to encourage Fox to keep the Sleepy Hollow Friday re-runs on the schedule.

The next new episode, "Join, or Die," will air on November 4th.  This episode will be the much anticipated first for John Noble, of Fringe fame, who will be a recurring character.  Noble will play Henry Parrish, a Sin Eater (a what?), who may be able to help Ichabod stop the impending apocalypse, and become a father figure of sorts to Ichabod as well.  James Frain (Grimm) also appears.  Take a look at the promo:

Sleepy Hollow Hits NY Comic Con Tomorrow

Tomorrow, the cast and producers of Sleepy Hollow will be at NYCC for their panel at 2:45, hosted by EW's Kyle Anderson.  In their first appearance since the premiere and second season renewal, we'll probably get to see some new clips and there will be a Q&A session as well.  After the panel, there will be a free autograph session.  Perhaps there may even be a Headless Horseman or two wandering around. 

Sign a Petition to Keep Sleepy Fridays!

If you are on Twitter, and a Sleepy Hollow fan in the US, you have undoubtedly come across #SleepyFridays.  The show re-airs on Fridays, giving us Sleepy Heads a chance to catch the episode again, and to enjoy the Twitter stylings of the Sleepy Hollow writers, producers and cast, most of whom have gotten on Twitter to live tweet, answer fan questions, or generally just cause some trouble (I'm looking at you @chitraelizabeth).  All the tweets are tagged with #SleepyFridays. It is tremendous fun.

Sadly, next Friday (10/18) is the last scheduled Sleepy Friday!  Fox has no more scheduled after that -- unless we can persuade them otherwise.  If you'd like to keep Fridays Sleepy, please click through to this petition and sign.  The petition will be sent to Fox in hopes we can convince them to keep letting us get our Ichabod Crane fix twice a week.

Sleepy Hollow Premieres in the UK to Record Ratings

Last night's premiere episode of Sleepy Hollow gave the Universal channel its highest ratings since 2005, and was their highest rated premiere ever, according to Broadcastnow.co.uk

The show also got some great reviews, with the Metro giving the show 4 out of 5 stars GQ UK  had this to say:

With it's ludicrous premise, you're either in for a good ride or a long trip to snoresville - thankfully we're gifted with the former. Sleepy Hollow strikes the right balance with believable special effects (significantly more impressive than SHIELD) and a strong enough cast that can slip in and out of the serious and light-hearted moments. With Orlando Jones (Evolution) and John Cho (Star Trek) in the supporting cast, there's a lot of potential for a fun, knowing show that television has been missing for a long time.
