The Wilmington-filmed drama's pilot episode drew in 10 million viewers, making it Fox's highest-rated fall drama premiere in six years. It also earned a 3.4 rating among adults 18-49 years old, and beat out ABC's Dancing With the Stars, which earned a 3.2 rating.
Regarding whether or not the show will continue to film in Wilmington, a show spokesperson said, "There have been no talks about switching location at this time."
The show is described as a modern-day twist on the Washington Irving classic, The Legend of Sleepy Hollow. In the show, Crane is resurrected 250 years later as humanity's last hope.
Sleepy Hollow airs Monday nights at 9 p.m.
