It remains to be seen if ABC will move forward with its forthcoming 'Once Upon A Time' spinoff series, now changing its title from 'Once: Wonderland' to the mouthful of 'Once Upon A Time in Wonderland,' but the cast continues beefing up. Now joining the cast is 'Wonderland's' new "Red Queen," but will she be as integral to the plot as the recent memorable portrayal from Helena Bonham Carter?
Once Upon A Time
A few weeks prior, rumors emerged that ABC's 'Once Upon A Time' had grown large enough to birth its own spinoff, focusing on Lewis Carroll's Wonderland with Sebastian Stan's Mad Hatter at the helm. Those rumors ultimately proved unfounded, though 'Once' creators Eddy Kitsis and Adam Horowitz did clarify that a potential presentation for a spinoff would move forward centering on classic heroine Alice. Now titled 'Once: Wonderland,' for the moment, are you ready to meet the new cast of the 'Once Upon A Time' spinoff?
A few weeks ago we heard the somewhat distressing news that 'Once Upon A Time' creators Eddy Kitsis and Adam Horowitz had begun eying a spin-off series around the fan-favorite Mad Hatter character, albeit one that would likely move forward with a new actor given Sebastian Stan's commitment to 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier.' Producers ended up downplaying those reports, but has the spin-off decided to move forward with a new 'Wonderland' focus? And might industry vet Jane Espension be behind it?
Late last week we were surprised by the rumors that 'Once Upon a Time's' producers had quietly begun plotting a Mad Hatter-centric spinoff, potentially re-casting busy 'Captain America: The WInter Soldier' star Sebastian Stan, but whether for damage control or not, it seems the rumor has largely been debunked. 'Once Upon a Time' creators Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis have publicly commented on the prospect of a Mad Hatter spinoff, but what are the chances of it actually happening?
While The CW preps a potential spin-off for 'The Vampire Diaries,' and 'The Office' quietly turned down Dwight Schrute spin-off 'The Farm,' it seems ABC's 'Once Upon A Time' could soon get in on the spin-off game by developing a new series around its popular portrayal of 'Alice in Wonderland's Mad Hatter. And while as much as Sebastian Stan fans would love to see the actor in his own series, filming commitments to 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier' may necessitate that the role be recast.

For as much as we love 'The Walking Dead,' we know not to get attached to too many characters, lest they be ripped screaming from the prison walls or even Woodbury.

Find out who the actress will play on 'Once Upon A Time' inside, and what it might mean for 'The Walking Dead!'
Much as we're enjoying the break from our hectic lives post-Christmas and pre-New Years, us TV fans are ready to get back into the swing of things.

Rose McGowan with magical powers? Stop us if you've heard this one before. In any case, 'Once Upon A Time' fans know that, like its spiritual predecessor 'LOST,' the ABC fairytale series likes to dip into the past to showcase new sides to its characters. The latest to recieve the flashback treatment will be none other than the evil(er) queen Cora, set to be played by none other than Hollywood actress Rose McGowan!

Barely half-way into its first season, and we've already seen 'Arrow' take on the likes of Deathstroke, China White, Deadshot and the Royal Flush Gang, and soon to cross paths with fellow vigilante The Huntress (Jessica De Gouw), but what kind of villain might Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) face in 'Once Upon A Time' and 'Alias' star David Anders? Might the latest guest star prove to be 'Arrow's biggest bad of all? And who could be behind the mask of this "Dark Archer" we're hearing about?
Part of the appeal of ABC's fairytale drama 'Once Upon A Time' lies in its inclusion of multiple fairytale characters, from Disney to Grimm, all in one story. The second season alone has featured the introductions of Mulan, Captain Hook and Lancelot, with the potential for others such as the Aladdin characters going forward, but what, if any characters are out of bounds? Could the series manage to include even recent Disney creations, like 'Pirates of the Caribbean's' Jack Sparrow?
