Warning: There's a major spoiler for the season 3 finale of Sleepy Hollow in this article.
The writers for the Sleepy Hollow television series made a bold move by killing off Abbie Mills (Nicole Beharie) in the season 3 finale, leading some fans to predict that Fox will soon cancel that series. Does that speculation have any merit? Let's find out by taking a look at a few facts:
As of this writing, Fox has yet to publicly renewannounce season 4.
According to showrunner Clifton Campbell, Nicole Beharie will not return as Abbie Mills should that series continue.
The third seasons live 18-49 demographic rating averaged 0.7 on Friday nights. That's considered decent ratings for its timeslot.
I'm predicting that Fox will order one more season to see if they can maintain a 0.7 rating in the key 18-49 demographic. If that series loses further viewers, it'll most likely be canceled after the fourth season.
