It is being reported tonight that Fox has decided to cancel Sleepy Hollow. The news comes just over a month after the mystery drama aired its Season 4 finale. Considered to be on the bubble for a couple of years now, the network's move to end the show does not come as much of a surprise.

Sleepy Hollow premiered back in 2013 and was a strong addition to Fox's prime time lineup for its initial 13-episode run. Unfortunately it could not keep up that level of momentum during Season 2, though it maintained a respectable level of viewership that easily earned it another pickup. Things were not looking as good by the end Season 3, but despite being the network's lowest-rated drama it was brought back once again. The recently-concluded Season 4 saw the show's lowest ratings numbers yet, which sealed its fate.
