Sleepy Hollow fans are already aware that the show is back from Oct. 1 on FOX.

New details on the premiere episode have just landed on the ScreenSpy news desk, indicating that the season 3 opener will find both Abbie and Ichabod at a crossroads following the momentous events of the last finale.

Catch the details below.

SLEEPY HOLLOW returns for a spellbinding third season of action, intrigue and “Ichabod-isms.”

When ICHABOD CRANE (Tom Mison) first awoke from a 250-year slumber, he teamed up with ABBIE MILLS (Nicole Beharie), a “leftenant” on the Sleepy Hollow police force. For two seasons, this unlikely pair of “witnesses” has followed clues from throughout history to try to stave off the apocalypse and save the world, by fighting demons, warlocks, wendigos, the Weeping Lady, the Kindred, a Succubus and the Reavers.

The startling conclusion of Season Two left the duo with a decisive, albeit heartbreaking, victory over evil, as both Katrina Crane (Katia Winter) and Henry Parrish (John Noble) – Crane’s wife and son – were slain.

Season Three picks up after a disquieting break in the supernatural action.

Abbie finds herself at a crossroads and looking for her next career challenge, while Ichabod is eager to learn more about the country he helped to found – beyond the limits of Sleepy Hollow.

However, as always, nothing is ever quite what it seems, and the eerie calm will quickly give way to the next tribulation, driven by a surprising supernatural presence that will challenge this duo in ways they will never see coming.

With Abbie’s sister, JENNY MILLS (Lyndie Greenwood); and the introduction of BETSY ROSS (Nikki Reed), a strong and smart woman from Ichabod’s past; FBI AGENT DANIEL REYNOLDS (Lance Gross), the new “boss” in town with a connection to Abbie; the return of JOE CORBIN (Zach Appelman); as well as the appearance of the mysterious PANDORA (Shannyn Sossamon), SLEEPY HOLLOW may never be the same.
