Recently we found out about a bizarre set of ‘Bones‘ and ‘Sleepy Hollow‘ crossover episodes that are in the works and now we’ve got a few details about them! While the two seem to be completely off base in going together, the description that is given of the two episodes actually make this sound as if it could feasibly work. This is assuming that Crane and Mills don’t share exactly what they are looking for with Brennan and Booth. First up, though, we did find out that the event itself is scheduled for October 29th which is much sooner than we had originally speculated.
What should be of interest to fans is how ‘Bones’ Executive Producer Michael Petersond describes the crossover:
“The Bones-Sleepy Hollow crossover is like a great episode of The X-Files, where the Bones hour is the Scully, logic-based perspective and the Sleepy Hollow hour is more Fox Mulder-esque. Put them together, and it’s going to be a great two-hour event that fans of both programs are going to love.”
Maybe it’s with ‘The X-Files‘ revival coming but that has me actually a little excited.
Here is an official synopsis of the ‘Bones’ episode that will kick off the crossover:
On Bones, the grisly discovery of human remains lead Brennan and Booth on a hunt for clues, during which they encounter Ichabod Crane and Abbie Mills, searching for answers of their own. Realizing that they are after the same evidence, they team up to solve the mystery.
Following that will be the ‘Sleepy Hollow’ episode that brings things to a close:
Then, immediately following on Sleepy Hollow, the intrigue continues as Ichabod’s old nemesis is back from the dead. Ichabod and Abbie need advanced forensic help and expertise to stop him and turn to Brennan and Booth to unlock 18th century secrets using 21st century science.
According to ‘Sleepy Hollow’ Executive Producer Clifton Campbell:
“When the idea came about to create this crossover event for fans, our writers’ room was immediately energized. The creative freedom to merge these two worlds which, at face value, seem so different; but at their core have such striking similarities – mystery, intrigue and methodical deduction, wrapped up in such strong character partnerships – was a challenge that we all welcomed, and we believe that fans of both series will be very satisfied by the result. It was a terrific collaborative experience across the board and we are eager to see the fan reaction to Ichabod and Abbie working alongside Brennan and Booth.”
It sounds like the team behind these shows latched onto the idea and really had fun putting it together. Hopefully the excitement translates to a fun on screen crossover that we can all enjoy.
Are you looking forward to seeing the cast of ‘Bones’ and ‘Sleepy Hollow’ working together? Do you think we’ll get a couple of episodes with a mood straight out of ‘The X-Files’ or are these two shows just far too incompatible to work together? Share your thoughts below!
