‘Sleepy Hollow’ producer Mark Goffman has chose to exit the series before any potential order for a third series is announced by Fox.
The series was a hit in its opening year, but the audience eroded during the second season.
Hollywood Reporter has revealed that Goffman, who oversaw day to day production on ‘Sleepy Hollow’ is making a move to CBS Television thanks to a new deal that he’s signed.
Under the two-year overall deal, Goffman — who joined ‘Sleepy Hollow’ after the pilot as showrunner — will supervise and develop new projects for the studio.
“We are thrilled to be in business with Mark. He is a highly regarded showrunner and has emerged as a unique voice that crosses worlds and genres,” said Julie McNamara, executive vp drama development at CBSTVS. “We look forward to a successful creative collaboration in the coming years.”
The news comes after the producer wrapped production on ‘Sleepy Hollows’ second season in February.
In terms of ‘Sleepy Hollow’ there is no news from Fox on whether it has been picked up for a third season or not, but it has been suggested by the shows star Tom Mison that a third season would probably involved some form of reboot for the series in order for it to continue. So we’ll just have to wait and see what happens.
