Sleepy Hollow - Season 4 - Casting Underway for New Female Lead + 2 More Series Regulars Exit *Updated*

Update: 2 more Series Regulars Have Left as the Show Moves Setting to D.C.

Sleepy Hollow‘s Season 4 revamp is looking more like a wholesale overhaul, one that extends well beyond the arrival of a new female lead.

Lance Gross and Jessica Camacho — who played FBI boss Daniel Reynolds and agent Sophie Foster, respectively — will not be returning as series regulars, TVLine has learned exclusively. Camacho is expected to make a guest appearance or two, while Gross will not be back at all. They join the previously departed Nicole Beharie (Abbie), Zach Appelman (Joe), Nikki Reed (Betsy) and Shannyn Soss (Pandora).

Gross and Camacho’s departures dovetail with the series’ decision to shift its setting from Sleepy Hollow, N.Y. to Washington, D.C., where Tom Mison’s Crane will find himself working alongside a new rag-tag crew, including the previously reported Anna, endearingly eager research analyst Seth and a female MacGyver by the name of Rosa. Casting is also underway for a new male Big Bad.

Sleepy Hollow‘s upcoming fourth season will be rated X.

The first details have emerged about the Fox drama’s retooled post-Abbie era, and the show’s fresh direction boasts several parallels to the network’s paranormal juggernaut The X-Files — beginning with Crane’s new partner in crime.

In the wake of Nicole Beharie’s departure at the end of Season 3, TVLine has learned that Sleepy Hollow is introducing a new female series regular opposite returning leading man Tom Mison. The character, Anna — like Abbie and X-Files‘ Scully before her — is a raging supernatural skeptic, which, per the casting breakdown, “creates conflicts with Crane.” The single mother and former military officer recently began working in the Secret Service’s “Basement,” a low-priority X-Files-like division.

“She’s got a tough, take-charge personality, punctuated by a wry sense of humor,” reads the description. “She’s a born leader, but she also has a softer, more caring side which she rarely shows.” Anna is “fiercely devoted” to her 11-year-old daughter Stella, a protective instinct Crane respects and appreciates.
