Talk about ending a first season in a big way. "Sleepy Hollow" did that and more, and we took the opportunity at San Diego Comic-Con to get the scoop on what's coming up in season 2. On Wednesday, July 30, we posted our video interview from the press room roundtable with Orlando Jones, Lyndie Greenwood and executive producer Alex Kurtzman.
They had a lot to say about season 2, so check out the video above or here. Keep reading for some highlight from the interview from Jones, Greenwood and Kurtzman.
"We left last season on such a crazy cliffhanger for everybody. We really wanted to do that to put everybody in the worst possible situation and then figure out how we were going to get out of it," Kurtzman explained. "One thing we can promise is that there are not going to be any easy answers for how everybody gets out. …There will be a lot of surprises, a lot of new twists and turns. Our cast will find themselves in a bunch of precarious situations what will be difficult to get out of. I think you can count on more insanity." That said, you can count on season 2 having the same tone as season 1.
Jones previewed that Irving will still be dealing with the aftermath of being locked up. "I'm really emotional about it. …I think for everybody, that's a really individual set of circumstances," when it comes to being locked up. "I think it's a really difficult position, knowing what he knows now, and realizing he didn't act sooner, and he was so skeptical, so I think it's more tortuous in his own mind."
Of course, something fans always want to know is how long a show can go and how much is planned out already. The EP explained that while you always want to know where you're going, it's best to leave room for surprises. So how is it going for "Sleepy Hollow"? "It's sticking to plan, but we've found a lot of new and interesting surprises along the way for the new season, which has been great. It's going down the same road that it went last season, in terms of our pre-planning." And how far out do they have planned? "We know where we're going at the end of the season," Kurtzman shared. "We have not yet worked out all of season 3, but we certainly know what we're setting up."
"Sleepy Hollow" season 2 premieres Monday, Sept. 22 at 9 p.m. on FOX.
