Fox has cancelled the supernatural drama, Sleepy Hollow, after four seasons, writes Deadline.com.
The show, based loosely on the Washington Irving story, starred Tom Mison as Ichabod Crane, an 18th Century soldier who suddenly awakes to find himself in modern-day Washington, D.C. While there, he discovers his enemies from 1787 have transported themselves as well and he proceeds to investigate their actions.
RottenTomatoes.com gave season one of Sleepy Hollow a score of 77 out of a possible 100, meaning 34 of 44 reviewers surveyed liked the show.
However, the ratings have sharply declined over the last four seasons, from a high of nearly nine million for the premiere episode in 2013 to less than three million for the now series finale which aired March 31, 2017.
Deadline.com notes that the show’s fate may have been sealed when it was moved to Friday nights for season four, a notoriously difficult time to generate viewers.
