Fox's Sleepy Hollow is the ultimate fish-out-of-water story — and yet, it's a tale that many viewers will be familiar with.
In this version of the classic story, Ichabod Crane (Tom Mison) wakes up in present day Sleepy Hollow after being frozen in time for 250 years, and the police department — including town sheriff Abbie Mills (Nicole Beharie) and her new boss Capt. Frank Irving (Orlando Jones) — are hesitant to believe Crane's claims. But when a Headless Horsemen, whom Crane was enlisted to track down in the past, begins ravaging the present day, Abbie and Crane team up to fight the forces of evil.
Sleepy Hollow brings the Four Horsemen (one of them Headless!) to Fox

Night Shyamalan miniseries Wayward Pines to follow in July — Reilly declared, "The one-size-fits-all business is over."
Move over, vampires and werewolves: Sleepy Hollow's Ichabod Crane is the new timeless character in town.
On the new Fox drama, Ichabod Crane (Tom Mison) is frozen in time, awoken to partner with Sleepy Hollow's sheriff (Nicole Beharie) to solve the mysteries of a town ravaged by the battle between good and evil.

In the final part of our farewell to Fringe, producers and cast discuss the episode that took Fox's sci-fi series in an entirely new direction: into the future. The series has always been known for its offbeat 19th episode, but its final one took the viewers on an adventure to Observer-occupied 2036, in which Peter, Astrid and Walter were freed from amber by Peter and Olivia's grown-up daughter Etta. In the race to the series finale, what's left of the team will attempt to reset time in hopes of ridding the world of Observers...
