'Once Upon a Time' postmortem: Showrunners talk chilly villainess and the future of Storybrooke

EW was desperate for more information about Sunday night’s Once Upon a Time season closer — and happily, showrunners Eddy Kitsis and Adam Horowitz didn’t give us the cold shoulder. Read on to learn all about why things shook out as they did — and how the pair decided to bring in the show’s newest Big Bad. (Or, to be more accurate, its new Big Misunderstood. Caution: Spoilers ahead!)

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: Take me through the decision to add Elsa to Once.
Eddy Kitsis: We saw the movie, and collectively, the whole entire writers’ room just loved it. It was our favorite film. What we loved so much about Elsa was she was perceived to be a villain, but of course we understood she was misunderstood. And the only one who understood that was her sister. That was a very thematic thing for us, which is a misunderstood character who everyone perceives to be bad. READ FULL STORY

Once Upon a Time has a royal birth coming up — and EW has photos from the delivery room.

Here’s a series of exclusive shots from the pivotal scene, which is like a fictional dress rehearsal for real-life couple Goodwin and Dallas.

MICHAEL-SOCHA.jpg

Wonderland fans, your wish is close to coming true: The Knave of Hearts is headed to Storybrooke. Actor Michael Socha is expected to join Once Upon a Time as a series regular next season.

This is not yet a done deal because Once Upon has not been officially renewed. While the Sunday fantasy drama is considered a lock by insiders to return, ABC hasn’t announced any of their 2014-15 pick-ups yet. When the order comes in, we’re told producers will exercise their option to bring aboard Socha, who charmed viewers on Once Upon‘s spin-off this season Once Upon a Time in Wonderland.   READ FULL STORY

'Once Upon a Time in Wonderland' canceled: Which land should ABC spin-off next?

once-upon-a-time-in-wonderland

The fairy tale’s over. Once Upon a Time in Wonderland is not coming back next season.

This is no surprise given its performance, but ABC confirmed the news Friday. The network actually told fans Thursday night that next week’s episode was the “series finale” instead of “season finale,” but interestingly the news is just really taking off now (when “only” 3.3 million watch a show, guess it takes a while for the news to spread).

The Once Upon a Time spin-off was conceived as a stand-alone one-season story, but the hope was a new tale in the same world could launch next season. All the episodes will have aired. The show struggled throughout its run at 8 p.m. on Thursday nights. The Sunday night flagship series Once Upon a Time, while not officially ordered for next season, is fully expected to continue.

UPDATE: And just because Wonderland has been canceled doesn’t mean Once Upon couldn’t spin-off again. So that’s our poll: Which Disney-owned land should Once Upon spin-off next? READ FULL STORY

'Once Upon a Time': Jennifer Morrison talks ditching Neverland for Oz -- and Emma's epic love triangle

[Ahoy, Oncers: We've got some spoilers ahead.]

Flying monkeys! Surprise(ish) pregnancies! Another curse! Clearly, there’s a lot to unpack from Once Upon a Time‘s midseason premiere — but thankfully, EW had the opportunity to chat with OUAT star/savior Jennifer Morrison after we’d seen the episode. She couldn’t answer every burning question… but she could tease some pretty interesting details about the fairy tale series’ journey into Oz.

Read on to learn why the woman who plays Emma Swan might miss Neverland, what makes this half-season’s villain so wicked, what the future holds for a certain presumed-dead fan favorite — and, of course, how Morrison feels about Nealfire (Michael Raymond James) and Hook’s (Colin O’Donoghue) battle for Emma’s heart.

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: The end of the last episode before the break seemed a bit like it could have marked the end of the show. Did you guys feel like that at all? It was very definitive.
JENNIFER MORRISON: Yeah. I think that Eddy [Kitsis] and Adam [Horowitz, Once's showrunners] did that on purpose. I think they were looking at the cable model, where they do 10 to 12 episodes [per season], and that’s a really definitive length of time to tell a story. Because of the way we were going to air this year, they had an opportunity to do two half-seasons, basically. And so they wanted the end of that half of a season to really feel like a definitive end, and then dangle the carrot for the next arc. And the second half of the season is completely different. We have a totally different villain, we have a whole different world we’re dealing with.

'Once Upon a Time': Lana Parrilla previews 'a very different' Regina

Neverland is ancient history for the gang on Once Upon a Time, which returns tonight after a three-month hiatus. Lana Parrilla, for one, is happy to have the island behind her. “It was getting quite dirty for everyone,” jokes the actress who plays The Evil Queen/Regina.

Emotionally, though, things remain as messy as ever for these characters. In this second half of the third season, they will find themselves contending with Zelena, the Wicked Witch (Rebecca Mader), a villain the likes of which has never been seen on the show, according to Parrilla. “She’s fighting for different reasons,” she says. “The Evil Queen wanted revenge — something happened to her and and she wanted to hurt [someone] because of it. This is a different situation because Zelena wants what other people had that she didn’t have….She has a connection to a character on the show, and that’s why she’s arrived. She’s out to hurt someone.” READ FULL STORY

'Once Upon a Time' sneak peek: Snow and Regina battle flying monkeys -- VIDEO

Fact: Flying monkeys are terrifying.

The proof is in this exclusive sneak peek below from Sunday’s episode of Once Upon a Time, the show’s first new episode in three months. In the clip, which is the first extended peek at the iconic creatures, Regina and Snow find themselves fleeing from the danger and trying to take cover.

It’s a short-but-sweet look at the show’s return, which EP Adam Horowitz recently said will feature “a lot of the big touchstones from [L. Frank] Baum’s books,” but with a Once spin. “There’s some fun surprises and hopefully interesting takes on that world that involve many of those people,” he said.
