A Sleepy Hollow Community
Monday 9:00 PM on FOX (Returning Fall 2015)

Another surprising figure from the past is popping up on Sleepy Hollow, and this time we're not talking about Benjamin Franklin.

The Mentalist alum Aunjanue Ellis has been cast as Abbie and Jenny's mom, Lori Mills, TV.com has confirmed.

Abbie and Jenny were both taken from Lori as children because of Lori's mental condition, and subsequently wound up in foster care. The girls thought their mother was crazy and possibly dangerous, and were also led to believe that she had taken her own life 16 years ago. However, new information will soon help the sisters learn the truth about mommie dearest.

The casting was first reported by Entertainment Weekly.

Best known as Madeline Hightower on The Mentalist, Ellis is also set to star in the upcoming BET miniseries Book of Negroes.  

Sleepy Hollow returns for Season 2 on Monday, September 22 at 9pm on Fox. Are you excited to meet Abbie's mom?
