EP Opens About Janina Gavankar's Character As Diana Thomas In 'Sleepy Hollow' Season 4

The producers made sure that they clearly stated that although there will be few changes, "Sleepy Hollow" Season 4 will be "back to basic" on its return. Indeed, the character of Abbie (Nicole Beharie) has been a big part of the show, but they aim to stay to its true spirit. They, too, promised that they will continue to stick to the important things "Sleepy Hollow" still has, like the humor and horror that will be seen adapted by Diana Thomas (Janina Gavankar).

The coming of Diana Thomas in "Sleepy Hollow" Season 4 is to bring the "grounding force." "To reintroduce this idea of how weird this universe is," the executive producer Albert Kim said, as per Deadline. Janina Gavankar, too, talked about her character as the Indian-American single mother who will do everything for her child. "We're all very complex people and we don't have to constantly talk about their race," she explained.

John Noble Returns As Henry Parrish?

Meanwhile, TV Guide noted the return of John Noble in "Sleepy Hollow" Season 4 as Henry Parrish. The 68-year-old star will play as the son of Ichabod Crane, although it is not yet announced how his return will be made.
