The second season of FOX's breakout hit Sleepy Hollow
won't be coming until the fall, but there's already some new information on who will be coming back. According to Deadline
, the show has promoted recurring guest stars John Noble and Lyndie Greenwood to series regulars for Sleepy Hollow
's second season.
Greenwood plays Abbie Mills' not-so-crazy sister Jenny, who appeared in 10 of the first season's 13 episodes. Her promotion isn't much of a surprise, but it does confirm that she'll be back after the finale's cliffhanger left her suffering in a car crash caused by the Headless Horseman.
Noble only appeared in three episodes from the first season as Sin-Eater Henry Parrish, though the big, shocking twists at the end of the season certainly suggested that he wasn't going anywhere. In the Sleepy Hollow
season 1 finale, it was revealed that Noble's character was actually Jeremy Crane, the son of Ichabod and Karina, as well as War, the second horseman of the apocalypse.Season 1 Finale Recap: The Shocking Truth About War>>
The first season of Sleepy Hollow
only featured four series regulars: Tom Mison as Ichabod Crane, Nicole Beharie as Abbie Mills, Orlando Jones as Captain Frank Irving and Katia Winter as Ichabod's wife, Katrina. All four will presumably return for the second season.
For Noble, this marks his return to being a series regular on FOX after spending five years on Fringe
. Greenwood, meanwhile, spent three seasons on the CW's Nikita
before joining Sleepy Hollow
was a surprise hit in its first season, premiering with over 10 million viewers and ending still above 7 million, with very large increases from DVR viewership.
