Fox Schedules Two-Hour Season Finale for Drama Series EW
Fox is letting its feelings be known about a drama series that has been a ratings success for the network, and will reward the show with a two-hour season finale. EW.com's Inside TV reports that the network will juggle its schedule to fit in the special two-hour block of “Sleepy Hollow.”
The freshman series, starring Nicole Beharie, Tom Mison, Orlando Jones and Katia Winter, has been a rare new scripted hit for Fox this season.
The network has also scheduled a two-hour block of "The Following."
“Fox is shifting around its midseason dates (again) and this time making room to double-pump ‘Sleepy Hollow’ on Jan. 20," the story reports. "Then Fox will air two hours of ‘The Following’ on Jan. 27 (an encore of its post-NFC Champion ‘preview’ episode from the 19th, followed by the dark thriller’s official regular premiere). To be clear: We’re still getting the same number of total hours of ‘Hollow’ (13), only now the last two episodes will run back to back."
