*Although Nicole Beharie had reportedly wanted to leave “Sleepy Hollow” for a while before her character Abbie Mills was killed off in the Season 3 finale, fans who took issue with the death of her character are now outraged that Fox had the nerve to renew the show without her.
Fox announced Friday that “Sleepy Hollow” was picked up for a fourth season, which birthed the hashtag, #IWontBeWatchingSleepyHollow.

#iwontbewatchingsleepyhollow because Abbie Mills deserved more than being confined to the role of magical negro.

#iwontbewatchingsleepyhollow because they took the hero’s story of a blk female lead and made it about carrying the white male lead forward

Let me tell you some tea about #SleepyHollow.
If the writers would’ve killed the white man, the show would’ve been canceled.
