Ichabod Crane is back on “Sleepy Hollow’s” newest season to settle his score with the Headless Horseman. Season 2 is kicking off its premiere episode on Monday, Sept. 22, 2014, at 9:00 p.m. on FOX. The all-new season will see the return of Benjamin Franklin, played by guest-star Timothy Busfield, but not the Franklin we all seem to know. Read on to find more about this story.
The premiere will pick up where we left off, with Ichabod buried alive by his own son in a coffin, Abbie trapped in purgatory as she sacrificed herself to free Ichabod’s wife, Katrina, who was captured by the Headless Ride while Hessians got Jenny. On the other hand, Henry/Jeremy, The Horseman of War, is preparing for, well, war obviously.
According to Entertainment Weekly, the episode will also see the return of Timothy Busfield as Benjamin Franklin revealing that he’s quite well informed about the epic battle, but it turns out he is Ichabod’s mentor all along. A flashback will reveal that Franklin’s kite and lightning experiment was not just to harness electricity, but in fact, the key he used in the said experiment holds a much deeper secret. As to all keys, this key can unlock something of greater importance.
Season 2 will introduce new characters — both natural and supernatural. Sakina Jaffrey will play the role of a new sheriff named Leena Reyes, and a new horseman might appear in the said upcoming season. He is described as a tall guy who is really skilled with swords, stunts and horseback riding.
“Sleepy Hollow” is a supernatural police drama television series, a take on a modern-day retelling of the 1820 short story “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow” by Washington Irving. It follows the story of Ichabod Crane, played by Tom Mison, a man-out-of-time who was brought back to life with the Horseman in the 21st century and his partner Lt. Abbie Mills as they try to solve the mysteries revolving around the Horseman.
