‘Sleepy Hollow’ and ‘Bones’ Plan Crossover Event

Two of TV’s favorite odd-couple partnerships may get the chance to meet during the 2015-2016 season. Sources confirm that Fox is planning to bring characters from “Sleepy Hollow” and veteran procedural “Bones” together for an upcoming crossover event, although details on when the crossover will air and which characters may be involved remain under wraps.

According to Variety sister site TVLine, which first reported the crossover, “the EPs at both shows have an inventive idea in place that organically merges the vastly different ‘Bones’ and ‘Sleepy’ universes.” While the crossover was initially planned for a fall debut, “logistical issues” necessitated the postponement of the meet-cute until spring.

Sleepy Hollow” is moving from its former Monday timeslot to Thursdays at 9 p.m. in the fall, leading out from “Bones,” which has occupied the 8 p.m. Thursday berth since last season.

“Bones” stars Emily Deschanel (Dr. Temperance “Bones” Brennan) and David Boreanaz (former FBI Special Agent Seeley Booth), while “Sleepy Hollow” stars Tom Mison (Ichabod Crane) and Nicole Beharie (Lt. Abbie Mills). “Sleepy Hollow” recently announced the addition of “Twilight” star Nikki Reed as a series regular for Season 3.

Fox declined to comment on the news.

“Bones” Season 11 and “Sleepy Hollow” Season 3 will premiere Thursday, Oct. 1, on Fox.
