Once Upon A Time
Boy, it's been a busy couple of weeks for ABC's 'Once Upon A Time.' Not only have several recurring characters been upgraded to series regulars, and Disney characters Mulan and Sleeping Beauty been added to the mix, but now at least three more classic characters have been added! Plus, what 'LOST' stars (that's right, multiple) are being eyed for new roles?
Any fan of ABC's fairy-tale themed Sunday hit 'Once Upon A Time' knows that the show largely creates its own continuity, but borrows plenty from the classic Disney adaptations of various literary princesses. 'Once Upon A Time' has shown us classic princesses ranging from Snow White to Belle to Cinderella, but now we've learned that season 2 of the critically-applauded series will add two more famous female heroines to the ranks! Who are they, and what actresses will be behind the magic?
Now that the proverbial cat (possibly even the literal, we don't watch the show) is out of the bag for residents of 'Once Upon A Time's Storybrooke, it's open season for existing characters as the show moves into its second season. We already learned that we'd be seeing a lot more "Red" for season 2, so who's the next 'Once Upon A Time' star to be be upped to series regular for the fall?
In some cases, seeing red isn't necessarily a bad thing. Especially when that red is 'Once Upon A Time's Meghan Ory, AKA Ruby, AKA Little Red Riding Hood! Well, we hope you like seeing Red, because you're going to be seeing a whole lot more of Meghan Ory when the second season of 'Once Upon A Time' premieres this fall. Does that mean we'll be seeing her wild side as well?
Now that both 'Community' and 'Fringe' have been officially saved for cancellation, it feels like most TV-goers can breathe actual sighs of relief, few other series coming so close to the bubble. Still, after NBC and FOX's laundry list of pickups, things have been curiously quiet on the front of ABC. ABC maintains less bubble series to be sure, but how much longer until we can expect relief? No longer!
At this point I'm starting to wonder if FOX even filmed a 'House' series finale, or if in fact the May 21 swan song "Everybody Dies" will simply consist of previous 'House' footage stitched together, with Hugh Laurie digitally added for witty one-liners and acerbic retort. It worked for 'Airwolf,' so why not here? But whatever you believe, it seems that the good doctor's final outing has picked up yet another previously departed 'House' alumni.
