Nicole Beharie‘s Abbie Mills may be dead, but “Sleepy Hollow” is actually very much still alive.

Fox has renewed its supernatural drama for a fourth season, a show that many (once again) thought would head to the graveyard instead.

Sans former female lead Beharie, “Sleepy” stars Tom Mison as Ichabod Crane, Lyndie Greenwood as Jenny Mills, Lance Gross as Daniel Reynolds and Jessica Camacho as Sophie Foster.

The 20th Century Fox Television and K/O Paper Products series hails from Alex KurtzmanRoberto OrciLen Wiseman and Phillip Iscove. The first three executive produce the show, as do Clifton Campbell, Albert Kim, Russell Fine, Heather Kadin, and Raven Metzner.

On Thursday, Fox axed “The Grinder,” “Grandfathered,” “Bordertown” and the already shelved “Cooper Barrett’s Guide to Surviving Life,” “Minority Report” and “Second Chance” — all after just one season.

Earlier this week, the network ordered the following five pilots to series: “Lethal Weapon,” “APB,” “The Exorcist,” “Making History” and “The Mick.” Previously, Fox picked up “The Pitch,” about the first woman to play Major League Baseball.

Fox is due to present its fall 2016 schedule to advertisers on Monday at the Beacon Theatre in New York.

The network finished third this season in the key 18-49 TV ratings demographic, and fourth among total viewers.
