Master storytellers Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz ("Lost," "Tron: Legacy") invite everyone to Storybrooke, Maine, a small town that probably won't show up on one's GPS, but it's a place where magic is coming!

To ensure that no one in fairytale land – especially Snow White – had any more "happily ever afters," Evil Queen Regina cast a curse which trapped the fairytale characters, frozen in time, and brought them into our modern world. Although still alive, they had no knowledge of their former selves and were sleepwalking through life – ageless -- for 28 years, until a savior arrived in the form of Emma Swan. Unbeknownst to Emma, she was the daughter of Snow White and Prince Charming, who had whisked her out of fairytale land and into our world as an infant to save her from the curse. Abandoned as a baby, Emma's life was anything but magical; her last job was as a bail bondsperson, but she mostly drifted without much of a life plan. When her 10-year-old son, Henry -- whom she had given up for adoption years earlier -- appeared on her doorstep with a book of fairytales and a wild story about how Emma was the progeny of fairytale characters trapped in a town called Storybrooke, she thought he was crazy. But curiosity got the better of her, and when she brought Henry back to the town – where Regina, ever the control freak, had made herself mayor and was also Henry's adoptive mother -- Emma soon discovered that Storybrooke was more than it seemed. Over time she came to believe the stories were true, began to see cracks in the curse, and was finally able to break it.

Reality and myth were merged as the fairytale characters began awakening, once the curse was lifted, and remembered who they were. But to their dismay they were not transported back to fairytale land. And to make matters worse, Rumplestiltskin – aka Mr. Gold – in an effort to gain the upper hand in his power struggle with Regina, introduced magic into the town. In fairytales magic has its place, but in our world it can have unfathomable consequences. Now the fairytale characters must contend with magic in their quest to find a way home, as new fairytale characters are revealed, old acquaintances are revisited, and some we had come to believe could be trusted will turn against their own kind.

"Once Upon a Time" stars Ginnifer Goodwin as Snow White/Mary Margaret, Jennifer Morrison as Emma Swan, Lana Parrilla as Evil Queen/Regina, Josh Dallas as Prince Charming/David, Emilie de Ravin as Belle, Jared S. Gilmore as Henry Mills, Meghan Ory as Red Riding Hood/Ruby and Robert Carlyle as Rumplestiltskin/Mr. Gold.

CASTING & GUEST STARS
  • For Once Upon A Time episode 3.01 and recurring in several episodes, the roles of Rufio and Thief are being cast. Rufio is in his teens, and is a mischievous and devious Lost Boy, and the Thief is in his 30s and steals magic from Rumpelstiltskin in order to save someone he loves. Source.
  • OUAT are currently casting for the role of Violet. It’s a recurring role, starting in Episode 3.03. She is in her 20’s, and is a head-strong party girl and often lands in trouble due to her inability to pass up a challenge or a prank. Source
  • Exclusive: Once Upon a Time Welcomes Back Giancarlo Esposito — But as Which Character?


SET PICS




Magazines and Press



SEASON 3 SPOILERS
  • Dina: I am going through Once Upon a Time withdrawals. Got any scoop on what to expect?
    A trip to a new land…possibly a permanent one! "They sort of set up that we are maybe heading to another land. They've teased that at the end of season two," Jennifer Morrison teases of season three. "I will be interested to see how we are all impacted by that new land. I think whenever we're in a place where everyone's relationships are impacted by their environment and it heightens the stakes for everyone, it becomes very interesting drama." Source
  • Question: Any intel on Once Upon a Time‘s casting of Peter Pan? —George
    Ausiello: The role of Peter Pan will be played by… a dude! “I can confirm that it will be a male playing the part,” exec producer Adam Horowitz tells TVLine. Beyond that, “Anything to do with that casting we don’t want to talk about, because that would be a big spoiler. Our approach to Peter Pan is one we’re super-excited about. Since Season 1, the Peter Pan mythology was something we wanted to do, but we couldn’t because of the rights issues. Once they were dealt with, we were able to finally go to town and open that world up. We started with Captain Hook, and we knew we wanted to build to what we’re about to do in Season 3.” Source
  • What’s going to happen to Storybrooke on Once Upon a Time? —Lauren
    NATALIE: Just because most of the ABC’s fairy-tale drama’s main characters went through a portal to Neverland does not mean we won’t be seeing Storybrooke next season. In fact, Emilie de Ravin, whose Belle has been left in charge of the town, confirms that she’ll continue to be a series regular in Season 3. The Lost alum also notes that even though Belle’s memories are allintact, it doesn’t mean she’ll write Mr. Gold off for his actions while she was Lacey. “She was going along with it though, so therefore you can’t blame him if you’re the one saying, ‘Kick that guy’s a—,” she says, noting that Belle will be devastated about his absence when the show returns. “But also she’ll gain her strength back and she’ll have to if she’s going to protect an entire town.” Source
  • Is it just me, or do you think Hook has feelings for Emma on Once Upon a Time? Any scoop on them would be awesome! –Kelley B
    You know my stance on the whole Emma thing: What guy wouldn’t? But where Hook is concerned, seeing as he’s now on a journey with two eligible bachelorettes, the Jolly Roger might transform into the Love Boat. “It’s probably about time he sort of found another love in his life,” Colin O’Donoghue shared with me at season’s end. “But if it was a toss-up between [traveling companions] Regina or Emma, I’m not sure exactly who he’d go for.” Given that Emma is currently reeling from the loss of Neal, “Maybe he’ll have fun with Regina, while he’s waiting for Emma,” the pirate’s portrayer ventures. “Who knows!” Source
  • Do you have any scoop on the "home office" on Once Upon a Time? — Jennie
    The home office wanted to destroy magic in our world, but that doesn't mean that Peter Pan isn't part of it. Speaking of the mysterious organization, executive producer Adam Horowitz promises pay-off. "We're going to explain pretty quickly what it is and how, as we showed in the finale, Greg and Tamara were unwittingly working for Peter Pan, and how that all connects." It was curious that they were so against magic, right? Source
  • Does Once Upon a Time plan on telling the current stories of the characters in Storybrooke, or will Season 3 focus on Neverland and the Enchanted Forest? –Ellie
    In case my previous scoopage on this subject did not reassure you that, as the headline said, “Storybrooke will not be forgotten,” I just confirmed that Emilie de Ravin is still a series regular for Season 3. Thus, it sounds like Belle will certainly have Maine events of her own to deal with back home.
    Will Once Upon a Time explain how Mulan and Aurora helped Phillip get his soul back from the wraith? –JJ
    Series cocreator Adam Horowitz confirms that yes, that burning question will be addressed during Season 3 — and likely on the sooner side, I reckon, since Jamie Chung and Sarah Bolger have midseason pilots (NBC’s Believe, ABC’s Mixology) to get to! Source.:
  • Question: Do you have any info on who will be Peter Pan in next season’s Once Upon a Time? —Wolf
    Ausiello: As we previously reported, the producers are hoping to keep the casting of Peter Pan under wraps — maybe with an eye on a big Comic-Con reveal? But while on the subject of Neverland, the ABC drama is also filling the heavily recurring role of Rufio, aka the teenage leader of the Lost Boys. The character, per lore, is described as forever youthful, mischievous and harboring a penchant for clever games — but behind his playful façade lurks a petulant child twisted enough to destroy anyone who crosses his path. King Joffrey, call your agent!
    Question: Plz plz plz let me know when Once Upon a Time Season 3 starts! I’m addicted to this series and can’t wait to find out what happens next. –Logan
    Ausiello: ABC — the last broadcaster to announce its fall premiere dates — isn’t in any rush to do so, so instead can I placate you with a plum piece of scoop? Sources tell me that Robin Hood will resurface in Season 3, but will be played by a different, yet-to-be-cast actor, seeing as Tom Ellis (Merlin) isn’t available for a recurring run. Who’s your pick to “rob” Ellis of his role? Anyone know what Matt Smith’s up to these days? Source
  • Tinker Bell's Turn
    Clap your hands if you believe in fairies, Once Upon a Time fans! And if you clap loudly enough, you might just get to meet Tinker Bell. With the action moving from Storybrooke to Neverland in Season 3, Peter Pan's favorite fairy is expected to play a significant role. In keeping with Once tradition, viewers will discover that Tink shares a surprising connection to one of the regulars. I do believe in fairies! I do! I do! Source
  • Question: Are the rumors true about Once Upon a Time introducing Tinker Bell? —Bonnie
    Ausiello: I’ll answer that question by describing to you the new character of Violet and letting you draw your own conclusions. How about that? Vi is a mischievous twentysomething whose penchant for troublemaking belies the heart of a true survivor. (Interesting side note, especially for Hook if she is Tinkerbell: She never lets a slight go unpunished!) Source
  • Do you have any Regina-related scoop for Once Upon a Time Season 3? –ZsaZsa
    And how! With an eye on the upcoming run, series cocreator Adam Horowitz tells us, “We may find out that perhaps, just perhaps, there is a special someone out there for Regina.” Source

It's too bad they need to recast Robin Hood already. I thought the actor who played him was alright, and would have liked for him to keep the spot.

I suppose they're going to make up some story like he used the magic wand to change his and Marian's faces, so they could hide from the Sheriff and Rumpelstiltskin.

As far as I know, no-one has said that they are recasting Robin Hood.

I have no idea what Robin is back for and when will his return hit the screen. Is it about the wand he stole from Rumple or the baby that was yet inside of his wife's belly the last time he was seen on the run from the local sheriff's manhunt?

Maybe he'll show up in Storybrooke to help Belle with the home office.

Okay, I didn't see that Ausellio spoiler, so scratch what I said. Personally, I don't see much reason to bring back Robin Hood, especially if they have to recast the role.

I never saw the point in all the hype for the character in the promos to begin with.

Belle doesn't need anyone's help to deal with potential threat from the home office. Her man's cloaking spell is enough to protect SB from the world outside if Belle enacts it as instructed. I believe in its power and function.

Unless they're already there. It's a big town. And all due respect to Belle, she was in the asylum all those years. She wouldn't notice someone in Storybrooke who didn't belong there.

I think it's going to take more than a cloaking spell. Otherwise what else is there for Belle to do in this new arc of hers? She's obviously not going to Neverland any time soon, I regret to say.

Yeah, it sure sounded like Robin Hood considering they used the same casting info.

I wasn't all that impressed with the actor playing him. Emilie said something about him coming back. I kind of got the impression that she would see him or work with him, but I could be wrong.

I guess Robin could be in FTL still and meet up with Neal. But I wonder if he could be in SB and just not seen till now. There are others there, I'm sure, who have been there and we just haven't seen them yet. Also, Adam said "who will Belle meet?" Marian didn't really make an impression on me. Can't even think of the actress. So I wonder if she is coming too.

About the HO, I think it's very possible they've had a person on the inside for quite awhile. So the cloaking spell wouldn't matter. They would already be there. The person may have even been in FTL. I don't think anyone in town knows every other person, so they could have had a person from the outside there all along and didn't know it.

Why would there be a triangle with Robin? Last I saw he and Marian were having a baby. Besides, he and Belle have history since she saved him. I'm sure they could become friends without anything happening.

Although, it's also possible that the curse took Marian and her baby, but left Robin in FTL. So he tries to find a way to Storybrooke along with Neal. And they can relate to each other since they're both trying to get back to the women they love and their children.

So I see how it could go either way.

I just don't trust these guys. I don't think there would be honestly. I edited that part out of my post, lol. But who knows what happened to Marian? I guess it's possible Marian could be in SB and RH in FTL. Or Robin could be in SB and Marian in FTL. I just found them both kind of bland but maybe with another actor and giving him an actual story it would be better. I always liked the RH story though so that could be interesting.

I can't picture Belle ever being attracted to someone else so no, I can't see her falling for anyone.

It would be funny if Neal keeps meeting up with people Belle saved in FTL. I just was not impressed with the guy playing RH, but then they really didn't give him much to do.

And didn't they kind of refute that RH would be coming back right away? I guess maybe Emilie wasn't supposed to say anything.

I was just thinking about Adam saying who would Belle meet? So she must meet someone. And I guess it could be RH. Does that mean "Keith" will be back too?

I think the dynamic between Neal and Robin would be interesting, since they were both thieves. But at the same time I also think Belle and Robin would make a cool team up. Especially if Keith tried to make a bid to be the town's new Sheriff.

Like I said, could go either way, or neither way at all.
