Current season and renewal expectations
Season 3 of Sleepy Hollow premiered on the FOX channel in the US on Thursday, October 1, 2015 at 9pm ET/PT and it is set to consist of 18 one-hour episodes. Sleepy Hollow has been nominated for many awards, including NAACP Image Awards, People's Choice Awards and Saturn Awards, although unfortunately has never won any. The ratings have also come down quite significantly since the series debut: if season 1 averaged 8.6 million viewers, in season 2 Sleepy Hollow averaged just 6.1 million viewers, which was a 30% decline. The season 3 premiere episode drew in only 3.46 million viewers and we have a feeling that this might be the end for the supernatural drama series.

UPDATED May 14, 2016: A ratings hit in its freshman season, Sleepy Hollow has since then had lost some of its audience, averaging approximately 4.8 million viewers per episode and a 1.4 rating in the 18-49 adult demo. It is, however, still set to remain on Fox's programming slate for a fourth season. The decision follows the departure of one of the series' co-stars Nicole Beharie, whose character was written out in the third season finale due to her long-standing desire to find a way to leave the show.
