On Friday, March 28 Entertainment Weekly exclusively broke the news that the ABC drama "Once Upon a Time in Wonderland" has been canceled after one season. The series was a spin-off of the popular ABC drama "Once Upon a Time," that followed fairytale characters in a small town as they try to return home.
The spin-off series was announced after the success of the original series, but failed to bring in the same amount of viewers. The thirteen episode series premiered in late 2013 and was based on the story of "Alice in Wonderland," from the book by Lewis Carroll. The new series takes place in the same world as the original, and features crossovers between the two shows.
The final episode of the series will air on Thursday, April 3 at 8 p.m. on ABC. The series was created to tell new stories each season, like the formula used by the FX drama "American Horror Story," but now that won't be happening. The series managed to bring in just over three million viewers a week on it's most popular episodes.
The original series is about to wrap up its third season on ABC, and is expected to be picked up for a fourth season due to high ratings and viewership although no formal announcement has been made. The series has teased introducing more Disney characters from "Frozen" and villains from its popular movies in later episodes and seasons to move the story forward.
