It would seem that the producers of ‘Sleepy Hollow’ have listened to some of the issues that fans have been having with season two, and are about to take action.
Fox executive Dana Walden revealed at this weeks TCA Press Event that the series is to change creatively and have a more episodic feel as it moved forward. She added that she loves the show and is hoping that these changes can help increased the audience numbers for it.
“We’re excited about some creative changes on the show, which will bring it back to something that feels a little more episodic in nature and that has closure, and doesn’t feel quite so serialised,” Walden told reporters (via Collider).
“But we really love the show. We love [Sleepy Hollow stars] Tom Mison and Nicole Beharie. They have fantastic chemistry.
“We feel like it’s a really unique series, and I’m hopeful it will come back.”
When asked about the changes Walden agreed with the section of the shows fan-base that feels that it has gotten a little too serialized this season.
“It’s very difficult on a show like this to hit the exact right balance of procedural storytelling, characters and ongoing character relationships and mythology.
“We felt, honestly, just watching the show as passionate viewers and as partners on the show that it got a little too serialised, and all of the creators and executive producers acknowledge that. So, as part of our diagnostic process on any show, we look at it and tried to determine what was working and what wasn’t working.
“There’s still a lot about it that works extraordinarily well. We are trying to return the fun to it a little bit… It’s all about calibrating the show and not making dramatic changes.”
