Fox has confirmed that the upcoming “Bones” and “Sleepy Hollow” crossover event is set to debut on October 29th and revealed the basic details of what’s in store in the two-part special episode during the Television Critics Association press tour this week.
The “Bones” episode sees Brennan and Booth encountering Ichabod Crane and Abbie Mills who’re trying to solve the same murder. In the “Sleepy Hollow” episode, Ichabod’s former nemesis is back from the dead and they need Brennan and Booth’s advanced forensic expertise to help stop him.
“Bones” exec producer Michael Peterson describes it as: “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.”
