Mark Goffman has left Sleepy Hollow as the show waits to discover whether it has a Season 3 future.
Goffman, who served as EP/showrunner for the supernatural drama’s first two seasons, has departed following a turbulent second season which saw the show’s storylines come under fire.
Per Deadline, Goffman is moving to CBS TV Studios where he has signed a two-year overall deal to oversee and develop new projects.
Julie McNamara, CBS TV Studios’ EVP of Drama Development, said:
“Mark is a highly regarded showrunner and has emerged as a unique voice that crosses worlds and genres.”
Despite Goffman’s departure, Sleepy‘s prospects of Season 3 are still considered fairly high, though Fox will mandate a more procedurally-weighted third season.
The powers that be are currently head-hunting for a new showrunner to oversee Sleepy‘s potential third season. Stay tuned as Sleepy‘s future becomes clear in the days and weeks ahead.
