Slowly they return, the clean-shaven, square-jawed heroes of yore, displaced for so many years now by their darker, more intricately conflicted brethren - the detectives with one foot on either side of the law, the pill-popping acerbic doctors and philandering, power-mad family men. The broadcast networks pivoted first; the leads of shows like NBC's "Grimm," Fox's "Sleepy Hollow" and ABC's "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. " are good guys through and through. Now AMC, the fledgling powerhouse that branded itself with the moral ambiguity of "Mad Men" and "Breaking Bad," and the bleak and ever-shifting convictions of "The Walking Dead," is entering the straight-up hero business.

The headless horseman will be around awhile longer. Fox has ordered a second season of "Sleepy Hollow," its hit debut fall drama. The show, a quirky, modern take on Washington Irving's legend of Ichabod Crane, opened to an audience of more than 10 million viewers on its first night, and increased to 13.4 million over the next three days. Counting views through Web streaming, video-on-demand and digital video recorders, more than 22 million people have watched the first episode. It was the network's most successful fall drama premiere since "24" debuted in 2001, Fox said.  FULL COVERAGE: Fall TV preview 2013 “The show has proved to be a risk well worth taking," said Kevin Reilly, Fox's chairman of entertainment.  Typically, a broadcast TV series runs as a series of 22 episodes.

When Fox's "Sleepy Hollow" became a hit this season, critics and viewers were so bowled over by its crazy-great premise - Ichabod Crane as a colonial war hero! Back to fight the Four Horseman of the Apocalypse! - that another revolutionary aspect of the show was often overlooked. It has four non-white main characters. Yes, Tom Mison's resurrected British-turned-Colonial soldier serves as the story's center, but "Sleepy Hollow" is also led by police detective Lt. Abbie Mills (Nicole Beharie)

The fall TV season just getting underway is studded with some big movie names. "21 Jump Street" helmers Phil Lord and Chris Miller directed the pilot of cop sitcom "Brooklyn Nine Nine," screen actors James Spader and Toni Collette anchor the dramatic thrillers "The Blacklist" and "Hostages," and Joss Whedon created buzzy Marvel series "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” But perhaps no show comes with a deeper cinematic pedigree than "Sleepy Hollow....

Turns out the Headless Horseman can gallop the ratings distance, at least in Fox's supernatural series "Sleepy Hollow. " A thoroughly modernized retelling of Washington Irving's horror classic "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow," the series has quietly become the kind of hit that network TV executives dream about -- and that Fox desperately needs as it confronts sharp viewing drops for its singing contest "The X Factor. " Why quietly? Well, when you look at the week-to-week numbers, "Sleepy Hollow" might not seem all that impressive.

Fox's new drama "Sleepy Hollow" is a mix of horror, humor, detective story and love story that producers hope viewers get their head around. "Our mission is fun, to be fun and entertaining," said Len Wiseman, a co-creator and executive producer of the show. "We really want to find the right balance of horror and fun. " The drama is a modern twist on the Washington Irving classic about the infamous Headless Horseman who terrorizes Sleepy Hollow. Its high-powered creative base includes co-creators/executive producers Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci ("Star Trek" and "Transformers" franchises, "Fringe")

It looks like Fox's new spooky police drama "Sleepy Hollow" got off to a screaming start Monday night. According to preliminary numbers from Nielsen, the series premiere drew more than 10 million viewers and more than doubled ratings from last year's debut of "Mob Doctor" in the same time slot.

Up and down, in and out, no other show has been so instantly lauded and rigorously criticized as Showtime's terrorist thriller "Homeland," which came to its third season close Sunday night. Over the course of three years and countless plot twists, CIA operative Carrie Mathison (Claire Danes) and former POW turned terrorist turned operative Nicholas Brody (Damian Lewis) became the modern-day Romeo and Juliet, star-crossed lovers beset by forces outside their control, often seeming at cross-purposes.

Forget #followFriday. It's #renewalFriday over at Fox. The network announced it has picked up comedies "New Girl," "Brooklyn Nine-Nine," "The Mindy Project" and thriller "The Following" for the 2014-15 season. "Brooklyn Nine-Nine," "New Girl" and "The Mindy Project" are part of the network's Tuesday comedy block. Toplined by Andy Samberg, "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" has performed modestly in its freshman season, averaging just over 5 million viewers, but has a few golden statues on its side -- it won two Golden Globes earlier this year, for the show and Samberg.

"Sleepy Hollow. " Thank heaven that World Series is over; after a three-week baseball-imposed hiatus, Fox's hysterically historical monster mash is finally back. And as the latest installment includes an appearance by Mr. John Noble ("Fringe," "Lord of the Rings"), it will no doubt be worth the wait. Noble plays a Sin Eater, someone who can take on the transgressions of the recently dead (a creature last seen, perhaps, in the Heath Ledger film "The Order"). Teasers promise that a search for a missing Ichabod Crane (Tom Mison)

Abbie Mills, the supernatural drama opened to 10 million viewers - making it the network's most successful fall drama premiere since “24” debuted in 2001.
