Hey, you never know, they could end up doing just that. They said this season's story is supposed to be wrapped up in one, and with they way things constantly change, they could want to do something brand new in another season.

But they also said that they would have a new story for season 2. So if picked up we would still be in Wonderland unless Once Upon A Time In: is the main show that can change.

I just remembered... Naveen Andrews used to be in a relationship with Barbara Hershey. Cue the Jafar/Cora shipping.

If we get future seasons, the cast and setting will stay the same, but the stories will change.

As an equivalent example for anyone wondering how that's going to work, I cite Clive Cussler's Dirk Pitt novels. Each volume in the series features the same cast of characters and the same basic setting and themes, but tells a complete close-ended story.

I like that idea that they plan on telling a close ended story every season but I really wish it was more like American Horror Story and we bounce around to different worlds each season. We could get one for Oz, Neverland, Agriba, Narnia etc.

I think the thing that probably might discourage them from doing that is the cast they've assembled. If they really like the cast they've put together for Wonderland, there's really no way to recycle the cast for the next season like they do on AHS, which takes a very Twilight Zone approach to anthology storytelling. If they really like Sophie Lowe as Alice, it's not like they can turn around and go "Well, she could be Dorothy Gale, too!"

I don't think there's a lack of possibilities here, though. We already know that Genie mythology is being mashed-up with Wonderland stuff this season, so who knows what they'd be able to whip out this season or beyond. OUAT can only cover so many worlds.

There's always a chance too that they could use this cast to go to other worlds as well. It looks like the White Rabbit is able to make portals to other worlds and lands, and we know some are like connected in the same world too, so there a chance that this could bring in characters that we might not get to see in the main series.

Yep. And according to TV Line's write-up on the pilot presentation...
Spoiler!!! Click to Read!:
It starts with the Knave (Michael Socha) in Storybrooke, interacting with Leroy around the time that the Wraith attacked. So somehow, probably due to the White Rabbit, he hops from our world to Alice's world to Wonderland.

Yeah, I think they're relying too much on the romance aspect with those posters, and not enough on the Wonderland imagery/mythology. When OUAT premiered they put out character posters identifying each of them clearly and making it clear what kind of show it is, instead of putting Snow and Charming frenching on a castle balcony or something.

Obviously the romantic aspect of the show is a big one, but still... then again, they might be doing it to appeal to the soap-loving, Shonda audience that will be there for Grey's and Scandal. We'll see, I guess...

The reason they're putting the emphasis on the romance is because that's what the show is about at its core. Cyrus and Alice's love story is what is driving the entirety of the story. It's the reason the Knave and the Rabbit break her out of the institution, and it's the reason she goes back to Wonderland in the first place.

Obviously. Still, it being the core of the story doesn't mean it's the best way to promote the show.

That doesn't make any sense to me. How else would you promote a show where the romance between two characters is the central core and driving thematic engine except to focus on said characters and their romance?

They discussed how John Ligthow's White Rabbit is a series regular character. I wonder if we'll ever see Ligthow on screen, like perhaps the White Rabbit was once human, similar to Jiminy.

'Once Upon' team talks Jafar: No parrot!
by James Hibberd on Aug 4, 2013 at 4:37PM

How will ABC’s Once Upon a Time in Wonderland‘s version of Jafar differ from Disney’s Aladdin version?

Showrunners Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz dropped some hints about how Naveen Andrews’ character will be integrated into the Once universe during their Television Critics Association press tour stop in Beverly Hills on Sunday.

“First off, like any character we introduce, we approach it from [asking] how do we humanize [the character], what’s the way to make it real relatable and grounded, and then we find an awesome actor,” Horowitz says.

“We wrote this part for [Andrews],” Kitsis says. “We knew we wanted Jafar, we knew we wanted Naveen. Similar to what we do with Once Upon a Time, no villain is just born evil, they’re made evil. For us, that is the story of Jafar, the story of what is driving him to need this power. With Naveen, we know he can break your neck with legs — as we saw in Lost — but he can also make you cry.”

“It’s about two big things,” Horowitz adds. “What does he want? And how did he get the way he is in order to want that thing?”

The showrunners added that Jafar will have an “uneasy alliance” with the Red Queen. There is something she wants that Jafar can help her get. “Like any partnership with two villains, neither trust the other,” Kitsis says. “Like all our characters, what she truly wants is something she cannot get through magic and power alone.”

Will Jafar’s sarcastic parrot Iago be in it?

“No parrot but staff!” Kitsis says.

Also: New potential character alert! The showrunners teased they’re interested in perhaps adding the ferocious Jabberwock from Alice’s adventures.

Wonderland Bosses Talk Pilot's 'Missing' Scenes, Solve Scheduling Mystery, Share Mad Hatter Plan

If you were among those who at last month’s Comic-Con saw the 20-minute “drama presentation” that sold ABC on Once Upon a Time in Wonderland, you basically laid witness to the first half of the new series’ premiere.

After Alice breaks out of the asylum into which her father had her committed, “We’re going to actually go [back] into Wonderland” in that first episode, cocreator Eddy Kitsis explained Sunday at the Television Critics Assoc. press tour in Beverly Hills. There, “You are going to meet Jafar (played by Lost‘s Naveen Andrews), get more of the Red Queen (Emma Rigby) and get more a sense of that world.”

Co-showrunner Adam Horowitz meanwhile clarified the scheduling plan for what he and Kitsis dubbed a “psychedelic romance,” seeing as an ABC press release suggested Wonderland would finale by the time the reality series The Quest claims Thursday’s lead-off spot on Jan. 2.

Working off an order of currently 13 episodes, he said, “The plan would be to tell a whole string of episodes in the fall, and then we come back after The Quest to finish up the story for this season.”

Other hot topics from Wonderland‘s TCA panel:

* The plan stands to have Barbara Hershey at some point reprise her Once role as the Queen of Hearts, in flashbacks. As for Rigby’s frosty Red Queen, she will share “an uneasy alliance” with Jafar, seeing as they each have specific reasons for keeping Alice from reuniting with the genie Cyrus.

* In addition to the hookah-smoking caterpillar (again voiced by Roger Daltrey) and the White Rabbit (a series regular character voiced by John Lithgow), “You will see the Cheshire cat in the pilot,” Kitsis shared. Explaining the casting of Lithgow (who replaced Paul Reubens) as the time-conscientious bunny, Kitsis said, “John brings an incredible depth. There are layers to the character and his backstory that we want to reveal.”

* Although Sebastian Stan is in high demand and currently unavailable for an encore on either Once series, Kitsis said, “We’re never going to have a Mad Hatter not played by Sebastian.”

* The EPs explained that the events of Wonderland take place concurrently with original Once — which raises the question of how then Alice can live in Victorian England. “It’s not historical Victorian England; it’s fictional Victorian England,” Horowitz said. As with other realms visited on Once, Wendy Darling’s England, Dr. Frankenstein’s world and such “are lands of story” removed from time.
