Between 15 and 18 eps seems a strange number given it's usually 22 - 24 for a full season.

But still better to have to few eps so they can keep the quality up then to have to pad things out, resort to bottle shows/clip shows etc.

Actually, these days it's increasingly common for shows to have 13-episode seasons.

Which only highlights the oddness of 15 to 18 episodes.

Re: Sleepy Hollow (Spoilers)

15-18 episodes allows for a show to share a timeslot with a 13-episode mid-season show while cutting down on the number of reruns.

Lots of shows have seasons/ series around that length. Burn Notice and Leverage being two recent examples that spring to mind

Re: Sleepy Hollow (Spoilers)

Rizzoli & Isles seasons are just 15 eps long on TNT.

IIRC, the Spartacus franchise had seasons 6-13 eps long on Starz.

Orange is the New Black is just 13 eps on Netflix.

( ETA: Oops! Forgot to mention the short seasons on SyFy, such as Warehouse 13)

Of course, since OitNB and Spartacus eps are usually 60 minutes long, that's like 1 1/2 of a usual (42 minute long) network show.

No, I think it illustrates that season lengths are becoming increasingly flexible. There is no rigid standard anymore.

Apparently Black Sails' season is only 8 episodes long. Frustrating.

I think Fox will probably do a Breaking Bad / Mad Men and have a 16 episode season and break it into two seasons.

I doubt it. That arrangement works on cable, but it would be problematic on a broadcast network.

Eight to ten episodes is now the standard length for a season on premium cable.

Re: Sleepy Hollow (Spoilers)

I think they will do 8 episodes in the fall, with a two week break for baseball, and then in the spring, March 20th to May 20th, give or take.

If it works on cable (which it doesn't really work, AMC is just cheap) then why wouldn't it work on Fox?
