‘Sleepy Hollow’ Producer Addresses Season 2 Critics

"Last season we were 13 episodes; this season we went to 18," he explained.

‘Sleepy Hollow,’ which for my money was the break out show of 2013 has seemingly lost some of its appeal this year and fans have been extremely critical about how the second season has been progressing.

In a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly the shows Executive Producer Mark Goffman defended the show and asked fans to stay with it because their viewership will be rewarded.

“Last season we were 13 episodes; this season we went to 18,” he explained. “So we’re growing. We’ve done some things differently this year; we have new cast; we have tried some different storytelling.

“We take a lot of really big swings on this show. Some of those work really well – and we’re adjusting and evolving as the season goes.”

A lot of fans have objected to the apparent sidelining of Nicole Beharie’s character Abbie Mills, but Goffman asked for viewers to “trust” the Sleepy Hollow writers.

“We’re excited to tell a lot more stories about both Jenny [Mills, Abbie’s sister] and Abbie,” he said.”We have a plan we put together, a really fun season arc, and…. things are going to be thrown into flux in a way that I think is really exciting – leading to a whole new trajectory for the back half of the season.”

Sleepy Hollow airs on Mondays at 9/8c on Fox. In the UK, the series airs on Universal Channel.
