ABC will be airing a one-hour special called Wicked is Coming starting at 7:00 p.m. on Sunday, March 9, 2014 — that’s right before the first post-break episode airs at 8:00.
The special will feature interviews with cast members and producers (and, presumably, lots of clips from past shows). The official description: “The special will take a look at the role that family plays in the show, our heroes’ journey from breaking the curse to the ramifications of magic in our world, travelling to Neverland to save Henry from an evil Peter Pan, and their upcoming battle with The Wicked Witch of the West.”
The narrator is Dan Stevens from Downtown Abbey (which I still haven’t seen yet!).
The long (very long!) version of the press release is copied verbatim after the jump. (contains some spoilers) Continue reading →
Promo that aired March 24 (after end of last new episode) for The Price of Magic and 2×19 Lacey
The network says this special — the “retrospective” Once Upon a Time: The Price of Magic — which will air on Sunday, April 14, on ABC the week before the show returns with a new episode — “will take a look back at how the residents of Storybrooke have fared since their fairytale memories have been restored.” It will offer “inside scoop” from show creators Eddy Kitsis and Adam Horowitz, who will also “tease what’s upcoming in the exciting final four episodes of the season.”
In other words, it sounds like the special will basically be a clip show covering what’s happened so far in Season 2 along with some behind-the-scenes footage and a few hints about what’s coming next.
