Fox cancels locally produced 'Sleepy Hollow' after 4 seasons

Fox announced Tuesday that the locally produced horror series Sleepy Hollow is being canceled after four seasons.

Sleepy Hollow, a modern take on the classic Washington Irving tale, 'The Legend of Sleepy Hollow,' centered around the time-displaced Ichabod Crane, played by Tom Mison, who initially worked for George Washington as a double agent in 1781 before being magically transported to 2013 via arcane means after beheading a horseman.

Once awakened in the 21st Century, he works in the city of Sleepy Hollow, NY, with police lieutenant Abigail Mills (Nicole Beharie), to prevent the "end of days," which is tied to the horseman he beheaded in 1781, who is also alive in the 21st Century.

The first two seasons of Sleepy Hollow were filmed in Wilmington, N.C., while the third and fourth seasons relocated production to metro Atlanta.

According to Deadline, domestic ratings were questionable by the end of season three, but a strong international showing allowed the network to give a go-ahead to a fourth season for the series, rounding out the show with a total number of 62 episodes by the end of the fourth season, which concluded in March.

Tuesday, the network also canceled Rosewood after two seasons. The police procedural series starred Morris Chestnut as a private pathologist working for the East Miami Police Department.

Fox will announce its new shows for the 2017 fall season at its upfront presentation on Monday afternoon.
