I shouldn't even be writing this article as someone who bounced on Sleepy Hollow in the middle of Season 2.
Why did I leave?
Well, I saw the "switch-up" coming when a slew of new writers were brought in for Season 2. Once they made their lack of regard for the black female lead character (and the actress herself) apparent, I saw no reason to stick around. Prior to their actions, it was evident that Abigail "Abbie" Mills, played by Nichole Beharie, was a vital character. She was a co-main lead, and she made an excellent "straight man" to Tim Mison's Ichabod Crane.
