"Once Upon a Time" gets better each season, but sometimes viewers of a popular series can worry that the story will get old. However, fans of the fairy tale show don't have to worry. According to a Jan. 3 report by KpopStarz, the second half of season 3 will have a "compelling new mode of storytelling."

A few new characters will be joining the fairy tale family. Rebecca Mader is playing The Wicked Witch and Alexandra Metz will be Rapunzel. The two are rumored to be making their introduction in episode 15, which is the same episode that viewers will meet Lawrence, who is described as an "uppity, know-it-all" servant who has a French accent, which sounds a lot like Lumiere. Christopher Gorham is set to appear on the show also, but his role is being kept under wraps.
As for Rumple and Belle, it turns out that he didn't die after all or perhaps will be brought back to life somehow. Co-creator Eddy Kitsis said that the pair will be in the same world for quite a while and their relationship will be explored "in whatever state that is."
"Once Upon a Time" co-creator Adam Horowitz told TV Line that fans can expect,
"...a compelling new mode of storytelling… and exciting new variation on things we've done before."
In other "OUAT" news, fans are speculating that The Wicked Witch is related to Regina, a promo clip reveals that The Wicked Witch will be walking towards Storybrooke, which was supposed to be erased by the curse, and Emma holds something in her hand and says, "it's not possible," which indicates that she may find out that fairy tales and magic are real. KpopStarz wrote that another promo clip shows someone being rushed into a hospital and the doctor attending to him resembles Dr. Frankenstein.
"Once Upon a Time" returns on March 9.
