The TV Gods are taking fairytale lovers into the world of Wonderland. A spin-off based on the “Once Upon a Time” characters has been confirmed.
The spinoff will be based on the Mad Hatter, and will introduce three new characters — the kind-hearted Alice of “Alice in Wonderland,” Amahl, the man with a positive outlook, and The Knave, the adventurer.
“We do have an idea that may or may not take place in Wonderland that will definitely have some new characters,” said Edward Kitsis, co-creator of “Once Upon a Time.” “But at this point, it’s just kind of us tinkering in the laboratory, so we’re kind of trying to keep it secret before we unleash it.”
The “Wonderland” pilot is scheduled to film next month. It is still unclear if Sebastian Stan will be reprising his role as the Mad Hatter, since Stan appeared to be unable to commit to a new series. However, Kitsis said they would not be recasting anyone in the series.
