Once Upon a Time in Wonderland to Premiere Fall 2013 Before Grey’s Anatomy
Get ready, Oncers. Come this fall, you’ll have two shows to obsess over on the ABC 2013-2014 line-up! ABC announced today that its Once Upon a Time spin-off, Once Upon a Time in Wonderland, will premiere in Fall 2013 — before Grey’s Anatomy! Originally, the series was supposed to air during OUAT’s scheduled mid-season break, but it looks like those plans have changed.
Once Upon a Time in Wonderland will air on Thursday nights at 8 p.m. EST this fall. The series, created by Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz, tells a “tale of a strange new land that exists on the other side of a rabbit hole.”
The spin-off will be set in Victorian England and follow Alice (Sophie Lowe) as she ventures down the rabbit hole. But when she returns and tells her family about all the wonderful things she saw — an invisible cat, a hookah smoking caterpillar, a white rabbit, etc. — everyone thinks she’s insane! So her doctors aim to cure her with a treatment that will make her forget everything, but as much as Alice tries to put the experience behind her, she can’t help but recall the painful memory of the genie she fell in love with and lost forever — the handsome and mysterious Cyrus (Peter Gadiot).
Thankfully, “the sardonic Knave of Hearts (Michael Socha) and the irrepressible White Rabbit (John Lithgow) arrive to save her from a doomed fate.” Together the trio will go back to Wonderland, where anything is possible.
And Oncers, don't worry: Once Upon a Time will air at its normal time, Sundays at 8 p.m. EST on ABC.
