Sleepy Hollow Renewed for Second Season

Fox has ordered a 13-episode second season of Sleepy Hollow, making the fantasy thriller the first fall debut to be renewed for a sophomore run. Renewal arrives just three episodes into the series’ first season. Sleepy Hollow ranks as Fox’s most successful fall drama premiere in more than a decade. The production, which is based out of EUE/Screen Gems Studios in Wilmington, began shooting in the region in late July and will continue until mid-December. In addition to the Port City, the production has shot in New Bern, Burgaw and other surrounding areas, including twice at Tryon Palace. Earlier this year, the series shot its pilot episode in Charlotte, Salisbury and Gastonia. The first season of Sleepy Hollow is expected to have a direct in-state spend of more than $25 million while making available approximately 5,000 job opportunities, according to the N.C. Film Office. ‘Sleepy Hollow’ Renewed by Fox for Second Season (Variety, Oct. 3)
