The idea is that as the show goes forward, there’s a new paradigm, which is: Crane has now officially realized the hope that both Washington and Benjamin Banneker had for him that he would one day be a part of the Vault. And you know Jenny and Diana would absolutely now be officially a part of it, and Jake [Jerry MacKinnon] and Alex [Rachel Melvin] would continue on. So it sets up a paradigm of a more official use of our team in going after [the supernatural] with the help of the U.S. government. We would definitely find ways to twist that and turn that. I thought the actress who played the president did a great job, so we would love to have her come back, but I think it’s more about giving them a new, more official role.
However, while Metzner is eager to continue the series for “many many, many” seasons, he acknowledges that this could be the end for Ichabod Crane and friends, noting that it’s “a great place to leave the series”:
I really hope that fans see that and that they are happy with it and that they feel like his journey has come to a positive place of fruition. I love the character and the world around him, and I really hope it does continue. I think there are many, many, many stories yet to be told. But if not, I hope that everyone knows that Crane is in a really good place. The moment he has with Diana where they’re walking toward us with this determined step — I hope that fans take that with them as a positive moment that either will be built on or is a great place to leave the series.
Is this the end of Sleepy Hollow or can the series survive another season on FOX? Stay tuned for the answer…
