Lance Gross is one new face this season of Fox’s “Sleepy Hollow” who will be introduced as Abbie’s (Nicole Beharie’s) FBI boss Daniel Reynolds. According to IMDB, he’ll be appearing in all 18 episodes this season.
A character that will be a series regular, Gross’ Reynolds will be “reunited” with Abbie when he’s assigned to Sleepy Hollow.
Other Season 3 castings include Nikki Reed (“Twilight”) as Betsy Ross, and Shannyn Sossamon (“Wayward Pines”) as a mysterious newcomer named Pandora.
The supernatural drama returns to Fox on a new night to start, tomorrow, Thursday, October 1 at 9/8c, competing directly with “Scandal.” That’s going to be an intriguing ratings battle. I’m looking forward to seeing the numbers.
Ahead of tomorrow’s return, Fox has released 3 clips from the series: an all-new opening title sequence, although it doesn’t appear to be terribly different from the previous one; a clip featuring star Nicole Beharie whose character has apparently moved up from the sheriff’s department and on to bigger things; and a 3rd clip featuring Shannyn Sossamon as Pandora.
Also here’s your setup for the upcoming courtesy of Fox: “SLEEPY HOLLOW returns for a spellbinding third season of action, intrigue and “Ichabod-isms.” When ICHABOD CRANE (Tom Mison) first awoke from a 250-year slumber, he teamed up with ABBIE MILLS (Nicole Beharie), a “leftenant” on the Sleepy Hollow police force. For two seasons, this unlikely pair of “witnesses” has followed clues from throughout history to try to stave off the apocalypse and save the world, by fighting demons, warlocks, wendigos, the Weeping Lady, the Kindred, a Succubus and the Reavers. The startling conclusion of Season Two left the duo with a decisive, albeit heartbreaking, victory over evil, as both Katrina Crane (Katia Winter) and Henry Parrish (John Noble) – Crane’s wife and son – were slain. Season Three picks up after a disquieting break in the supernatural action. Abbie finds herself at a crossroads and looking for her next career challenge, while Ichabod is eager to learn more about the country he helped to found – beyond the limits of Sleepy Hollow. However, as always, nothing is ever quite what it seems, and the eerie calm will quickly give way to the next tribulation, driven by a surprising supernatural presence that will challenge this duo in ways they will never see coming. With Abbie’s sister, JENNY MILLS (Lyndie Greenwood); and the introduction of BETSY ROSS (Nikki Reed), a strong and smart woman from Ichabod’s past; FBI AGENT DANIEL REYNOLDS (Lance Gross), the new “boss” in town with a connection to Abbie; the return of JOE CORBIN (Zach Appelman); as well as the appearance of the mysterious PANDORA (Shannyn Sossamon), SLEEPY HOLLOW may never be the same.”
