According to Hollywood.com, the answer is “maybe.” More after the jump.
The show, which originally was going to debut as a mini-series during next winter’s Once Upon a Time hiatus, has been picked up as a full series and has been moved up to debut in the fall. So the network must have a lot of confidence in the show. If you watch the trailer, you can see why. The show looks fantastic.
And now, for the question that fans most want to know: Will Sebastian Stan, who played the Mad Hatter and his Storybrooke alter-ego Jefferson in Once Upon a Time, be coming back? For a long time, from what we heard, it sounded like the answer was “no,” that he couldn’t be in the new show because his schedule was too busy. But now there is at least a glimmer of hope. OUAT — and OUAT in Wonderland — creator Edward Kitsis, quoted in an article published today in Hollywood.com, left the door open a crack:
As for Sebastian Stan, the Mad Hatter that fans have already come to know and love in Once, Kitsis says that infamous role in Wonderland all depends on the actor’s busy schedule. “If Sebastian has a week, we’ll take it,” Kitsis says, adding, “[But] he could be free when Wonderland wraps. We’d love to have him back.”
Do I hear a squee?
