'Once Upon A Time' Gets ‘Wonderland’ Spinoff
Once Upon A Time may have a new spinoff on the way called Once: Wonderland, following Alice and company in the time before the curse.
The role of Alice has already been assumed by Road Kill’s Sophie Lowe, Entertainment Weekly confirmed. She’ll join the growing cast of Michael Socha (Being Human) as the Knave of Hearts and Peter Gadiot who will play Alice’s love interest, Cyrus.
Once: Wonderland will be introduced to an audience in a small test presentation featuring the cast that Once creators Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz are putting together. The pre-curse Wonderland Once spinoff will film in Vancouver and will debut after Once wraps its second season.
Once creator Kitsis is quick to clarify that the spinoff, if it comes to fruition, will be atypical. They don’t necessarily plan for the series to have more than one season. “The idea is not a spin-off in the traditional sense — another five-year, 22-episode series,” Kitsis revealed to EW. “It’s much more in the vein of an American Horror Story, with a beginning, middle, and end.”
