Season 2 of Sleepy Hollow is a Go

Sleepy HollowAfter just three episodes, FOX’s Sleepy Hollow (Mondays at 9 p.m. EST) has been renewed for a second 13-episode season.

As IGN’s Eric Goldman notes, this move is more typical for cable than network TV, where extra episodes are generally ordered to extend the first season before renewal. What that means for the show or network TV in general remains to be seen, but focused 13-episode seasons make sense for a show that has set itself up for a seven-year arc. In theory, keeping the seasons tight (by US TV standards) could prevent it from becoming just another procedural drama, with clear seasonal story arcs and minimal filler. Here’s hoping!
