ABC has canceled Once Upon a Time in Wonderland, TVGuide.com has confirmed. The Once spin-off will air its series finale next Thursday at 8/7c.
A promo following its penultimate episode also noted that next week's episode will be the series finale.
ABC's partnership with Marvel is continuing at a good pace. On Friday's Television Critics Association winter TV previews, ABC entertainment head Paul Lee announced that the character of Lady Sif from the Thor films will cross over to Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
Here's an exclusive clip from Thursday's episode of Once Upon A Time in Wonderland, which finds Alice and Will, the Knave, confronting a fire-breathing dragon. The scene was shot on location outside Vancouver at Alouette Lake in Golden Ears National Park. "I love being out here," the show's Alice, Sophie Lowe, told me on set. "We had to start out here at 4 a.m. when it was still pitch dark, but when the sun came out we discovered how beautiful it is. Even though we have to deal with rain and planes, I definitely enjoy location shoots more than our green screen scenes."
During breaks in filming, the cast set out on their own to explore the park's wonders. "I'm from the middle of England with grey skies and no water or sun, so I'm always wandering off into Vancouver's forests," says Michael Socha (Knave Will). "I'm just glad I haven't bumped into one of those bloody bears yet!"
Once Upon a Time in Wonderland airs Thursdays at 8/7c on ABC.
Here's one reason to celebrate ABC's decision to stick with its struggling Once Upon a Time in Wonderland. The spin-off has just closed a deal with Barbara Hershey to reprise her popular Once Upon a Time role as Cora, The Queen of Hearts.
