It looks like Ichabod is going to have to come face-to-face with a former flame in the upcoming season of Sleepy Hollow. Nikki Reed has been cast as Betsy Ross, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Though we know her for creating the nation's first flag, Sleepy Hollow's incarnation of the seamstress is described as "sexy with an unsuspecting physical prowess," who may wield a needle and thread by day, but by night is a dynamic colonial insider and a secret operative within George Washington's ring of spies.

"We are all very excited to welcome Nikki Reed into the world of Sleepy Hollow," co-creator Len Wiseman said. "Nikki's the perfect choice to bring a smart and sexy edge to our show's twisted version of American icon, Betsy Ross."

The Twilight star will even get to join husband and Vampire Diaries star Ian Somerhalder in Atlanta where both series film.
