ABC's series 'Once Upon a Time' has already plowed through a hefty number of fairy tale characters and stories in its three seasons on the air, so it wasn't a huge surprise when the show decided to add in some newish tales -- it was, however, a bit of a shock that they had snagged Disney's smash hit 'Frozen' to make the leap to the small (and live-action) screen.
Once Upon A Time
We've already heard the major networks revealing when their shows would finally premiere for the fall 2014 season, and now ABC has finally brought up the rear. Find out when Marvel's 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' will return for season 2, as will new episodes of 'Once Upon a Time,' 'Scandal,' and all your ABC favorites with the fall 2014 premiere schedule!
We were as surprised as any to learn that ABC's fairy tale mashup 'Once Upon A Time' would dip into more recent fare with an appearance from 'Frozen''s Elsa, Ana and Kristoff, but those expecting to see Idina Menzel or Kristen Bell reprise the roles may be left in the cold. 'Fringe' star Georgina Haig has landed the role of 'Frozen''s ice queen Elsa, while the fairy tale has also cast the season 4 roles of 'Once Upon a Time''s Anna and Kristoff.
ABC has become the next in line to divulge their fall 2014 schedules in advance of the Upfront presentation this week, and while the list leaves off any major surprises, Marvel fans would do well to learn that new series 'Agent Carter' will indeed serve as a smaller series bridge between the first and second half of 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' season 2.
While we're more concerned with ABC's renewal of Marvel's 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' and an official series order for 'Agent Carter,' the network had plenty more to offer in advance of its Upfront presentation next week. Not only will such staples as 'Modern Family' and 'Scandal' return, but freshman comedy 'The Goldbergs' has officially earned an additional season, in addition to such pilots as 'Guardians of the Galaxy' star Karen Gillan's 'Selfie.'
Well, we have to give it to ABC's 'Once Upon A Time,' they certainly go all out when it comes to voice talent for the series. Where such previous vocal guest stars as The Who's Roger Daltrey and 'Dexter''s John Lithgow have given life to iconic fairy tale characters, dope shock rocker Marilyn Manson will next loan his throaty pipes to play the mysterious Shadow of Neverland, a much darker character than we've come to remember from the stories.
Gritty fairy tale re-imaginings for everyone! With 'Once Upon A Time' due to begin its third season in the coming weeks, spinning off into 'Once Upon A Time in Wonderland' shortly thereafter, ABC has put its stock in developing limited series 'Esmeralda,' a re-imagining of the classic 'Hunchback of Notre Dame' tale in the vain of Chris Hemsworth-Kristen Stewart thriller 'Snow White and the Huntsman.'
Summer may be gone, but who cares? It’s TV time! Fall TV 2013 will prove among the more exciting seasons in recent years, including everything from Marvel’s ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ premiere to the return of our beloved ‘Walking Dead’ for season 4, but with so many options to choose from, which TV is really must-see?

Far and away one of the more exciting aspects of 'Once Upon A Time's Comic-Con 2013 panel proved to be the brief teaser revealing that fairy tale icon 'The Little Mermaid's Ariel would surface in the third season. Now, ABC reveals that 'Animal Practice' star JoAnna Garcia Swisher will don the flippered tail, but what twist will 'Once' put upon the character?
Almost immediately after ‘Once Upon a Time in Wonderland,’ Comic-Con 2013 attendees were treated to the panel proper for ‘Once Upon a Time'! Series creators Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis returned to lead a panel comprised of the entire cast, including such new additions as Captain Hook (Colin O'Donoghue) and Baelfire (Michael Raymond-James)! So, what surprises did the ‘Once Upon a Time ‘panel conjure up for us?
