'Sleepy Hollow' Loses Its Head And Won't Be Back For Season Five

Sleepy HollowIt appears that the adventures of Ichabod Crane in the modern era are over. Fox has decided not to renew Sleepy Hollow for a fifth season according to Variety. While a fan favorite in its first few seasons Sleepy Hollow the ratings began to drop off considerably. It wrapped up its fourth season with significantly lower ratings.

The fantasy-cop drama saw its ratings plummet in season four, averaging a 0.5 rating in the 18-49 demo and 1.9 million total viewers — down 40% in the demo and and 37% in viewers from season three.

The show has had a rocky start since the end of the second season. Showrunner Mark Goffman left after the second season and the show received a decent amount of bashlash for killing its female lead Abbie, played by Nicole Beharie. The show never really recovered and now won't be given a chance unless another network picks it up.
