The potential ONCE UPON A TIME quasi-spinoff is starting to take shape: a representative for ABC confirms that Michael Socha has been cast as one of the leads in the upcoming pilot presentation for an Alice in Wonderland-centric spinoff.

There’s no definitive timetable for when we might see this potential spinoff, but if ABC likes what they see, Horowitz and Kitsis insisted earlier this month that they wouldn’t be recasting Sebastian Stan as the Mad Hatter, and the intention was for this to be a one-off, limited series type of thing.

Are you hoping we get to explore more of the Wonderland world in a potential spinoff?
