One of FOX’s biggest series, “Sleepy Hollow,” hit the ground running with an epic freshman season that garnered ratings rivaling the premiere of 24. It immediately found a faithful, loyal and passionate fandom, affectionately called “Sleepyheads”, who have showed their ‘Sleepy Love’ with ferver. Neilsen Ratings listed the fandom as the 8th most influential on social media. And it’s no wonder. Season two was a tumultuous one to say the very least, yet thanks to the fandom’s influence on social media, Executives stepped in and changes were made which was reflected during the second half of the season.
Although the changes were made, it seemed as though it might be too late as FOX delayed announcement of a third season. “Sleepyheads rallied with the ‘Renew Sleepy Hollow’ campaign and created a petition, that proved fans still wanted another season with over 3x the amount of signatures than the goal. Did this help FOX make the decision to keep the show? Only the Executives know, but Sleepyheads were ecstatic when the announcement was made. Since then, fans have kept the show front and center via social media through the long hiatus with numerous online twitter parties, interactive contests and chatter as to whether a romance will blossom between ‘Ichabbie’ (smush name for Ichabod and Abbie), Ichabod’s hair, Abbie’s new FBI threads and new cast,” Chrissy Piccolo
