Fox hit will run on the online subscription streaming service the day after new episodes air on TV
Here’s some news for horsemen without TVs to lose their heads over: Hulu Plus has acquired the exclusive streaming rights for Fox’s “Sleepy Hollow.”
The subscription-based online network began running the drama’s first season on Friday.
Going forward, a day after new episodes air on the broadcast network, Hulu Plus will have them on its own platform.
Season 2 of “Sleepy Hollow” premieres Sept. 22 on Fox, when it will be paired with the network’s highly anticipated Batman prequel, “Gotham.”

“Sleepy Hollow” stars Tom Mison, Nicole Beharie and Orlando Jones, among others and was co-created by Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci, Phillip Iscove and Len Wiseman. It’s executive-produced by Kurtzman, Orci, Wiseman, Mark Goffman, Ken Olin and Heather Kadin.
“Sleepy” was a breakout ratings and cult hit for Fox last fall. Its two-part January season finale at 8 p.m. earned a 2.2 rating in the advertiser-sought 18-49 demographic. At 9, “Sleepy” scored a 2.4.
