Even though “Sleepy Hollow” may not have a huge presence this year at San Diego Comic-Con, it is still a thrill to have some news coming out about the upcoming fourth season!
According to a report coming in now via TVLine, Janina Gavankar of “True Blood” fame has been brought on to play the part of Diana in what is at least at first going to be a guest-starring role. She will be effectively Ichabod Crane’s new partner, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that she is all that similar to Abbie Mills by any means.
The official character description for her role is as follows:
“A single mom and former military officer who’s currently a Special Agent for Homeland Security. She’s got a tough, take-charge personality, punctuated by a wry sense of humor. She also has a softer, more caring side which emerges when she’s with her young daughter. Initially she doesn’t believe in the supernatural, and that creates conflicts with Crane. They also clash because they have different ways of approaching missions: While he’s methodical and research-focused, she’s active and task-oriented, which is reflective of her military training … She rarely talks about the father of her child — a person she cared for, even though she never saw a life together with him — but she’s fiercely devoted to her daughter and will do anything to protect her, an instinct Crane appreciates. After her partner goes down in the line of duty, she and Crane will find common ground in their shared sense of loss. And the two of them will quickly realize they have another important point of connection — though not one anyone would expect at first.”
This new season is more than likely going to prove itself to be challenging, but that doesn’t have anything to do with Gavankar herself. Instead, she simply has to contend with the notion that many fans are going to still be upset over losing Nicole Beharie from the show, and it could be tough to win them over and convince them to watch. Here’s to hoping that she figures out a way somehow.
