“Sleepy Hollow” fans can officially rejoice! After a long hiatus from our favorite supernatural drama, the Fox series proved it’s closer to debuting its Season 2 premiere by leaking the formal title of episode one: “Hellfire.”
Talk about burning hot news!
“Yeah, it’s getting real now… (Season 2, Episode 1 of @SleepyHollowFOX),” Albert Kim, a writer/producer for the show, wrote on Twitter alongside a snapped photo of the premiere script.

The image shows that the anticipated premiere will be written by Mark Goffman and directed by Ken Olin, so you know it’s going to be good. But what can fans expect to go down in the first episode of Season 2? Well, according to reports, “Hellfire” might leave a few characters battered and bloody.
"It's a season about war," Goffman said of Season 2 during PaleyFest. "It's a season about redemption."
To bolster his statement, a casting call has been released to the public in hopes of finding actors to appear as potential Revolutionary Era soldiers.
Do you think you have what it takes to fight alongside Ichabod? If you answered yes, here’s everything you need to know about what the job entails from payment to appearance criteria:
According to the casting call, “Sleepy Hollow” is looking for Caucasian men, preferably Revolutionary war reenactors, from the ages of 18-50 in the Wilmington, NC area to fight the good fight in the Fox series.
“Sleepy Hollow” then stated the specifics they’re looking for in their actors:
“We need men who can fit Jacket Sizes 38-44 (please note that these are very fitted costumes and true to size so if you are larger than a 44 we will most likely not be able to use you). Must be willing to be clean shaven and not have long sideburns. ABSOLUTELY NO FACIAL PIERCINGS, NO VISIBLE TATTOOS ON NECK, FACE AND HANDS.”
The dates the actors are need are Monday, April 28 and Tuesday, April 29 for a costume fitting, Tuesday, May 6 for a Battle Sequence Rehearsal and Wednesday, May 7 for the actual filming of the battle scene.
“The actual date of filming for the battle scene is WED MAY 7TH (PLEASE KEEP IN MIND THIS CAN ALWAYS CHANGE AND IF IT DOES WE Will CONTACT YOU ASAP). If selected we ask that you be available for what could be a 12+hr day. Call time may start VERY VERY early in the AM. The pay is a guaranteed $64 for up to 8 hr and time and a half after 8 hr. I know some of you live outside of Wilmington and understand if you do not want to commute for all the dates listed. Please keep in mind that we do not cover travel or housing expenses,” the casting call explained.
“If you are available for MAY 7th you MUST be available to attend a paid Battle rehearsal on Tuesday May 6th. I don’t know how long you would be needed so again we ask that you be available all day for the rehearsal. You will be paid $64/8 for THAT rehearsal day as well.”
