Sleepyheads, someone at FOX loves you: Instead of making you wait a week in between the two halves of “Sleepy Hollow’s” first season finale, the freshman hit will now conclude with a two-hour installment on Monday, Jan. 20.
But there’s some bad news along with that good news: Unfortunately, the two-hour “Sleepy Hollow” means “The Following” premiere will now have a week-long gap instead. Season 2 of the serial killer drama was scheduled to debut after the NFC Championship Game on Sunday, Jan. 19 and continue on the next day, but the second episode will be pushed to Monday, Jan. 27 instead.
In the first hour of the “Sleepy Hollow” finale, “The Indispensable Man,” Ichabod and Abbie will uncover a shocking truth surrounding George Washington’s death while Captain Irving makes a life-changing decision for his family. In the second hour, “Bad Blood,” something extremely vague happens: “the battle between good and evil comes to an explosive head — sacrifices must be made, worlds collide, loyalties are tested and the town of Sleepy Hollow will never be the same.” Just so you know, that’s PR-speak for “crazy s*** goes down.”
