Sorry Neal, we're over being sad — because we just found out Once Upon a Time is set to get a new series regular in Season 4 who will take all the pain away.
Entertainment Weekly reports that Michael Socha is set to take his Once Upon a Time in Wonderland character, The Knave, to the main ship now that Wonderland has gotten the axe. Although this is not a completely done deal — after all, OUAT hasn't even officially been picked up for Season 4 — EW's sources seem confident that the OUAT producers will bring Michael on board if the show does get another season, which seems highly likely.
As longtime fans of Michael (if you've never watched the BBC version of Being Human, you really should) and massive supporters of The Knave, we couldn't be happier to hear this news. The Knave brings a good mix of snarky humor and genuine kindness, and we have a feeling he'll blend right in with the OUAT cast.
So far, there's no word on if the producers are also considering bringing Sophie Lowe's Alice to Storybrooke. It's possible Wonderland will end with Alice and Cyrus going off on adventures together, so it might not make sense for her to land in our world permanently. If that's the case, we do hope she'll at least drop by now and again to see her old traveling bud, The Knave.

Once Upon a Time airs Sunday nights at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
