  • In Memoriam: ‘Sleepy Hollow,’ ‘Pitch,’ and Other Shows We’ve Lost This Season

    It’s that time of year again — when networks decide which shows are being renewed and which ones have to move on to that big TV box in the sky. While favorites like This is Us and The Big Bang Theory have already been officially renewed, some shows have gone the way of the dodo, and will live on only in our hearts and on our DVRs.

  • 31 Genre Show Producers on the Heart of Their Series

    Over the last month, executive producers of more than 30 current genre shows have taken part in Yahoo TV’s “Why Genre Shows Matter” survey, either via email or by phone. We’ve learned which genre show was the first to resonate with them, which genre show they believe deserved more Emmy love, which current genre show they think is tackling an issue well, and, if they were a Buffy the Vampire Slayer fan, what moment, episode, or arc best explains why in honor of the show’s 20th anniversary.

  • 15 Genre Shows That Helped Shape TV Today

    What was the first genre show to resonate with you? 1. HBO owes a “thank you” to The Incredible Hulk. Because when you’re a skinny, nerdy 10-year-old, you wish you could transform into a painted green Lou Ferrigno and beat the living s–t out of anyone who makes you angry.

  • ‘Sleepy Hollow’ Preview: ‘Moving Forward Is Something People Who Fight Evil Have to Do’

    Ichabod Crane contemplates his new surroundings in ‘Sleepy Hollow’ Season 4. Showrunner Clifton Campbell feels your pain about the loss of Abbie Mills (Nichole Beharie), who sacrificed her life for her time-traveling comrade, Ichabod Crane (Tom Mison), at the end of last season. “We think we’re presenting an iteration of Sleepy Hollow that they will love and find very familiar.

    It’s time for the Yahooies, Yahoo TV’s second annual reader-voted awards honoring the best — and sometimes worst — of 2016. Each day through Dec. 16, we will announce the nominees for one category, with an accompanying poll. The winners will be crowned Monday, Dec. 19.

  • NYCC: Tom Mison on Abbie’s Absence From ‘Sleepy Hollow’ Season 4: ‘She Casts a Long Shadow’

    When Fox’s supernatural series, Sleepy Hollow, returns for its fourth season in 2017, time-traveller Ichabod Crane (Tom Mison) will have a new homebase (Washington D.C.), a new partner (Department of Homeland Security agent, Diana Thomas, played by Janina Gavankar) and a new mission: find the witness who can fill the Abbie Mills-shaped hole in his life. Abbie (Nichole Beharie), of course, shuffled off this mortal coil at the end of the third season, a controversial development that didn’t please the show’s fanbase.

  • ‘Sleepy Hollow’: Janina Gavankar Cast As Ichabod Crane’s New Partner

    Ichabod Crane (Tom Mison) has a new partner. 'True Blood' alumna Janina Gavankar is set for a recurring role in Fox’s drama series 'Sleepy Hollow.'

  • 'Houdini & Doyle': No Magic In These Mysteries

    Magician and escape-artist Harry Houdini and Sherlock Holmes creator Arthur Conan Doyle did, apparently, know each other in real life, but it seems unlikely that they solved mysteries together for however long the new Houdini and Doyle manages to stay on the air. The new hour, premiering Monday on Fox, positions Houdini (Michael Weston) as the smart-alecky American skeptic, and Doyle (Episodes’ Stephen Mangan) as a gullible believer in the supernatural: They’re opposites attracting, paired up to investigate crimes that stump the police. To demonstrate this, the duo is assigned a British police officer (Rebecca Liddiard) to keep them in line—because you just know the Brits were hiring a lot of young women in key capacities at the turn of the 20th century.

    How’s that for a season finale?

  • 'Sleepy Hollow' Postmortem: Showrunner Talks Abbie's Fate, What's Next

    Warning: This article contains spoilers for the ninth episode of Sleepy Hollow’s third season. It is a truth universally acknowledged that death is rarely permanent on Sleepy Hollow (unless your name happens to be Katrina Crane). So when paranormal investigator Abbie Mills disappeared through a hellbound portal at the end of the midseason finale, the show’s fanbase was 90 percent sure (okay… maybe 70 percent sure) that she wasn’t gone for good. “Our fans are sophisticated enough in genre and have a strong enough relationship with this show to know that anything is possible in Sleepy Hollow,” admits showrunner Clifton Campbell.

    'The Muppets' reboot is back with a new showrunner, 'Sleepy Hollow' returns, 'American Crime Story' debuts, and more.

  • 'Lucifer' Review: Oh, Burn In Hell

    Lucifer: Oh, Burn In Hell The most obnoxious show of the new year thus far, Lucifer traduces the character created by Neil Gaiman and developed by writer Mike Carey in the Lucifer comic-book series. The new show, premiering Monday on Fox, turns him into a smug twerp who delights in humiliating many perfectly nice, ordinary people as well as the bad guys he catches as an aide to a cop. The opening scene, traditionally designed to introduce us to the main character and the tone of the show, does its job well.

  • The 23 Best TV Moments of 2015

    In 2015, television made us laugh, it made us cry, it made us text friends “OMG?!” There were so many incredible moments that we couldn’t stop talking about on Twitter, in the office kitchen, via Skype with our moms. Related: The 26 Best TV Episodes of 2015 There were hilarious musical numbers like “Pinot Noir” on Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt and Kristen Wiig’s “Chandelier” dance at the Grammys. We stopped breathing for a few minutes during thrilling fights on Justified and Daredevil.

  • Lyndie Greenwood Teases a 'New Direction' for 'Sleepy Hollow'

    Sleepy Hollow is always a hotbed of activity — paranormal and otherwise — but tonight’s episode will prove especially eventful for one particular resident of the not-so-sleepy burg: Jenny Mills. The butt-kicking, magic-hunting sister of local law enforcement officer Abbie Mills (Nichole Beharie), Jenny (fan favorite Lyndie Greenwood) has been somewhat sidelined this year, relegated to helping new guy on the block Joe Corbin (Zach Appelman) adjust to life as part of Sleepy Hollow’s Scooby Gang.

  • 'Bones'/'Sleepy Hollow' Crossover Review: Creepy Halloween Fun

    When I heard that the producers of Bones and Sleepy Hollow got their idea to cross their shows’ universes over from the Simpsons/Family Guy crossover, I thought, gee, they really don’t understand what real life is in Hollywood, do they? Bones’ Temperance Brennan and Seeley Booth are, by now, a comic couple, forever exasperating each other amusingly, in a show surrounded by other characters who roll their eyes and make wisecracks over dead bodies. By contrast, Ichabod Crane and Abbie Mills are — well, Crane is a fictitious creation (by Washington Irving) whose existence in the “real” world of Sleepy Hollow is assumed to make some corporeal sense. Now, don’t quote me on this, because the plot gets both historically entangled with alternate readings of the Revolutionary War and the mythologies of both of these TV shows, but the key crossover mechanism is that the corpse the Bones cast was squinting over belongs to a General Howell who at a certain point gets reanimated by Sleepy Hollow villain Pandora.

  • 'Bones'/'Sleepy Hollow' Crossover Sneak Peek: Ichabod Crane Flunks Halloween (and Bowling)

    OK, so we’ve heard all the buzz about the Bones/Sleepy Hollow crossover, but here’s one thing we never thought we’d see: Ichabod Crane in bowling shoes.  In this exclusive sneak peek clip from “Dead Men Tell No Tales,” the Sleepy Hollow episode of the Bones/Sleepy Hollow crossover event, Ichabod Crane (Tom Mison) misses the spare, as well as his opportunity to change things up in the wardrobe department on Halloween.  Related: Behind-the-Scenes Photos from the ‘Bones’/’Sleepy Hollow’ Crossover Sure, those bowling shoes make him look like an “Italian circus performer” (his words), but Crane’s cosplay is pretty weak as he tries to convince Abbie, Jenny and Joe (Nicole Beharie, Lyndie Greenwood, Zach Appelman) that he’s actually dressed as a U.S. president for Halloween. Can you figure out who?

  • Exclusive Behind-the-Scenes Photos of the 'Bones'/'Sleepy Hollow' Crossover Event

    It’s one of the fall’s most anticipated TV events: Oct. 29′s Bones/Sleepy Hollow crossover, which begins with newly-minted FBI Agent Abbie Mills (Nicole Beharie) and Ichabod Crane (Tom Mison) traveling to the Jeffersonian in the 8 p.m. hour of Bones, “The Resurrection in the Remains,” and concludes with Booth (David Boreanaz) and Brennan (Emily Deschanel) visiting Sleepy Hollow in 9 p.m.’s “Dead Men Tell No Tales.” Enjoy this behind-the-scenes look at the two worlds colliding.

  • How TV Is Celebrating Halloween 2015

    It’s October, so you know what that means. Halloween is about to take over the small screen. There’s nothing quite like costumed comedy, and for this season, TV’s funniest characters have pulled out all the stops, with costumes that include Predator, Mr. T, and a cannibalistic serial killer costume worn by an unlikely trick-or-treater.

  • ‘Sleepy Hollow’: Nikki Reed on Betsy Ross’s Past

    Although Sleepy Hollow’s dynamic duo of Ichabod Crane and Abbie Mills are fictional, the show always surrounds them with real figures from American history. Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, and George Washington have all appeared in previous seasons of Fox’s paranormal procedural, and Season 3 has added another historical luminary: Betsy Ross, played by Nikki Reed. Related: ‘Sleepy Hollow’ Season 3 Brings Back the Humor Only this isn’t the Betsy Ross you know from our own timeline… largely because we don’t know that much about her, apart from the whole “sewing the first American flag” thing.

  • ‘Sleepy Hollow’ Showrunner Promises a More Fun and Fan-Friendly Season 3

    Paranormal investigators Ichabod Crane (Tom Mison) and Abbie Mills (Nicole Beharie) have battled a number of freaky monsters during the first two seasons of Sleepy Hollow, from the Headless Horseman to the demon Moloch. When they reunite for the show’s third year, though, they’ll be confronting a creature that’s far more intimidating: unhappy fans. Last year, Sleepy Hollow fell victim to the dreaded “sophomore slump,” with convoluted storylines, an increasingly dense mythology, and unpopular characters steadily eroding the series’ once-mighty ratings and, worse still, its once-devoted fanbase. The carnage wrought by Season 2 eventually claimed multiple victims, including Ichabod’s wife — and chief object of fan derision — Katrina (Katia Winter, who was fully aware of her unpopularity), who died in the season finale; fan favorite Frank Irving (Orlando Jones), who came back from the dead, only to leave the series between seasons; and showrunner Mark Goffman, who was replaced during the hiatus by Clifton Campbell.

  • Warning: Don't Eat and Watch These Shows

    There are certainly some very obvious offenders: Penny Dreadful, American Horror Story, and The Walking Dead, with their depraved combo of blood, guts, and creepy crawlies, are easily the first that came to mind for most of the Yahoo TV staff.
