Can you tease how Amelia will fit in on Grey’s Anatomy next season? — Carla
How she’ll fit into Grey Sloan will all depend on whether or not Derek takes the D.C. job, which causes some “frustrating complications,” executive producer Shonda Rhimes tells me. But Amelia will make a surprising connection at the hospital, just not with who you’d think. “There’s a moment early on when she finds herself the keeper of some secrets that Richard didn’t necessarily want her to know by being at an AA meeting that he didn’t know she was at,” Rhimes says. “It draws her into the world in a deeper way than she anticipated.” Hmm, I wonder what that secret could be.

The Hot Seat: 'Once Upon a Time' bosses answer burning questions

With Frozen’s Elsa and Anna coming to Once Upon a Time next season, it’s easy to forget there’s still a whole town of Storybrooke residents who are dealing with their own issues next season.

To find out the answers to that and more, EW put executive producers Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis in The Hot Seat, where they have the option of answering your questions from Twitter with “Yes,” “No” or “Can’t say.” Get the scoop below.

Spoiler Room: Scoop on 'Pretty Little Liars,' 'Once,' 'Castle,' more

Welcome to the Spoiler Room, a safe place for spoiler addicts to come on a weekly basis to learn what’s coming next on their favorite shows and, hopefully, get a few of their own questions answered. If you want scoop on a specific show, send your questions to spoilerroom@ew.com.

We are two weeks away from the Pretty Little Liars season-five summer finale with producers already teasing a #FatalFinale. And considering that, at this time last year, fans found out about Ezra’s pretty little secret and everything changed, there’s no telling what the writers have in store for us this year. I hopped on the phone with executive producer Joseph Dougherty, who wrote Tuesday’s penultimate episode, to chat about what the next hour (or two) has in store.

'Once Upon a Time' extended season four synopsis: 7 things we learned

The world of Once Upon a Time will soon come back to life—and with plenty of new faces in tow.

ABC has just released an extended synopsis of the show’s upcoming fourth season, which will introduce Frozen’s Elsa, Anna, and Kristoff, as well as Once Upon a Time in Wonderland’s Will Scarlet. (His reunion with Robin Hood should be interesting, since the two didn’t leave each other on the best of terms.)

What’s in store for the residents of Storybrooke? Here are the seven juiciest details we learned from the new logline:

Epic tales of the endless struggle between good and evil don’t always leave a lot of room for laughs. That’s where this video comes in.

Below, see an exclusive first look at Once Upon a Time‘s season-three gag reel, a short, sweet montage of your favorite fairy tale characters (including Ginnifer Goodwin’s Snow White, Joanna Garcia’s Ariel, Lana Parilla’s Evil Queen Regina, Sean Maguire’s Robin Hood, and, of course, Colin O’Donoghue’s Captain Hook) getting goofy on the set of ABC’s magical fantasy.

Photos: 'Once Upon a Time' reveals Elsa, Kristoff, and obviously the reindeer

When it comes to reindeer, you know at least one. Technically, you probably know nine. But now, you definitely know 10, because a new charming caribou has entered the wintry ring. This fall… coming to a TV near you… it’s… SVEN.

The lovable reindeer is part of a whole slew of characters from the smash Disney movie Frozen, who will be joining the cast of ABC’s fairy tale saga Once Upon a Time for a large arc this fall. Snow Queen Elsa, friendly neighborhood mountain man Kristoff, wide-eyed bridezilla Anna, and the villainous (both in personality and in sideburns) Hans are among the ensemble who will join the show when season four hits the air on September 28. And, of course, the actors playing them (Georgina Haig, Scott Michael Foster, Elizabeth Lail, and Tyler Jacob Moore) will also be involved somehow. The storyline will also feature Elizabeth Mitchell in a still-mysterious role and John Rhys-Davies as patriarchal troll Pabbie.

Finally, after months of anticipation and Tumblring, ABC has unveiled the first official photos of some of these Frozen favorites in costume. We don’t know what’s going on, exactly—the Frozen arc picks up some time after the film’s events have already occurred—but we can sure guess! READ FULL STORY

Tyler Jacob Moore, John Rhys-Davies join 'OUAT' in 'Frozen' roles

The introduction of Frozen‘s Elsa really was just the beginning: After her blonde braid made its appearance in the Once Upon a Time finale, there have been numerous other chilly additions to the cast, from Anna and Kristoff to, most recently, a troll king and a human prince.

EW has confirmed that actor John Rhys-Davies, who played Gimli in the Lord of the Rings series, has joined the Once cast as the voice of Pabbie the Troll King, with Shameless‘ Tyler Jacob Moore officially signing on as the morally questionable Prince Hans.

Once Upon a Time returns Sunday, Sept. 28 at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.

Giant 'Once Upon a Time' Comic-Con billboard teases 'Frozen' storyline

Once Upon a Time fans going to Comic-Con won’t be able to miss this tease to next fall’s big storyline: a large building-wrap poster giving another Frozen hint.

For more, see our deep-dive interview with OUAT showrunners Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis giving some exclusive details about their season 4 plan.

'Once Upon a Time' is casting Prince Hans from 'Frozen'

Anna better look out, because a Frozen prince is headed to Once Upon a Time.

EW has confirmed that OUAT is in the process of casting for the role of Prince Hans, another name that Frozen fans will recognize. In the film, Hans was the charming prince who seemingly swept Anna off her feet. But let’s just say that he was later revealed to have some questionable motives. According to TVLine, which first reported the news, we will meet Hans in the third episode of season 4.

The addition of Hans brings the Frozen character count on OUAT to four, following the casting of Elsa, Anna, and Kristoff.

Once Upon a Time returns Sunday, Sept. 28 at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.

ABC: Here's why 'Once Upon a Time in Wonderland' didn't work out

once-upon-a-time-in-wonderland.jpg

ABC Entertainment Group president Paul Lee has a theory about why Once Upon a Time in Wonderland didn’t work out. The network executive suggests the Once Upon a Time spin-off was undermined by its time slot. Originally, ABC planned to run the Alice in Wonderland-inspired fantasy series during Once‘s winter hiatus. It ultimately opted to air Wonderland Thursdays at 8 p.m. leading into Grey’s Anatomy instead—which has been a tough hour for the network in recent years, with several shows struggling to gain traction in the slot (particularly up against CBS’ top-rated The Big Bang Theory). This fall, ABC will execute its original plan by running fairy tale musical comedy Galavant in the OUAT “gap.”

“I would have given [Wonderland] a better chance had I done what we’re doing with Galavant and put it in the gap,” Lee told reporters at the Television Critics Association’s press tour in Beverly Hills on Tuesday. “We wanted to build a night of empowered women, and we were excited about the show, disappointed we didn’t bring an audience to it … I think we should have tried that one in the gap. I think we would have had a better chance with that.” READ FULL STORY
