Once Upon a Time Spoilers: Will We See The Wizard of Oz? Show Bosses Reveal…
Once Upon a Time has traveled to many different lands in its two seasons, but will the cast be following the Yellow Brick Road anytime soon? Show bosses Adam Horowitz and Eddy Kitsis spilled the magic beans on The Wonderful Wizard of Oz’s potential future on the show recently, and we don’t know how to feel.
Considering there are two different Oz-themed shows in the works — SyFy’s Warriors of Oz post-apocalyptic series and CBS’ Dorothy medical drama — it seems like the wrong time to add a third to the mix. Adam and Eddy dished to TVLine that Neverland is their focus now and they “don’t really feel the pressure” to explore another land.
“We’ve always loved Oz — we’ve talked about it, we’ve hinted at it,” Adam noted. “And if and when we get to it, we have the way we want to do it.”
In true OUAT fashion, that means putting their own spin on the classic tale and “trying to do something new to it without reinventing the wheel.”
It sounds like we can all breathe easy that we won’t be juggling Oz with Storybrooke, The Enchanted Forest, Neverland, and Wonderland (in the spin-off Once Upon a Time in Wonderland) — at least not this season. But hey, we wouldn’t mind seeing Dorothy & Co. waltz into at least one of our current realms, especially if it means Toto shows up. C’mon, Pongo needs at least one animal friend, right?
