Fox president Dana Walden has blamed serialization for Sleepy Hollow‘s Season 2 woes.
However, a third season will likely see Sleepy Hollow become more episodic, with Walden claiming that the show has become “overly serialized,” per Deadline:
“On Sleepy Hollow, we are going to wait a little bit longer [before renewing]. We are excited about some creative changes on he show. We want to get back to something that feels a little bit more episodic in nature, it has become overly serialized. We are trying to return the fun to it a little bit. This is all about calibrating the show, not making dramatic changes. Hopefully it will come back as well.”
Seriable believes the “overly serialized” tag is over simplifying the show’s actual issues.
