"Bones" and "Sleepy Hollow", the two of the most popular shows, are all set to come together for a special crossover episode. Fox has announced that it will air around Halloween. Fans must be excited to watch the special episode.
During the show's panel at ComicCon, Fox's executives Gary Newman and Dana Walden shared details about the crossover eipsode and how the characters of the two shows will work together to solve a new case.
Apparently, the special episode of "Bones" will start at 8pm with Ichabod Crane (Tom Mison) and Abbie Mills (Nicole Beharie's) teaming up with Seeley Booth (David Boreanaz) and Brennan (Emily Deschanel) to solve the mystery behind a series of unearthed human remains.
This will be followed by "Sleepy Hollow" at 9pm, where Ichabod and Abbie look to Booth and Brennan's forensic skills after Ichabod's arch enemy comes back from the dead.
The official synopsis (via Screen Rant) for the "Bones/Sleepy Hollow" crossover reads:
"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. 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."
In a recent interview, executive producer of "Sleepy Hollow" Clifton Campbell and executive producer of "Bones" Michael Peterson shared their excitement over the crossover episode. In fact, Peterson even compared the crossover with "The X-Files".
"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," he said.
Campbell, on the other hand, spoke about the work they put in to bring these two shows together. "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," he said.
"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," Campbell added.
"Bones/Sleepy Hollow" special crossover episode will air on 29 October on Fox.
