ABC spin-off “Once Upon a Time in Wonderland” was destined to be canceled but was officially told so on Thursday night when it was announced that the next episode was no longer the season but the series finale (yeah, there’s a big difference!!!).
Granted, the show was meant to only last one season, but there was the hope that it could be renewed for new plot lines.
The series, which was a tangent to ABC favorite “Once Upon a Time,” had quickly declining ratings (now at only around 3 million viewers).
What’s frustrating though is that the concept was there but the execution (mainly the affects) weren’t.
While it won’t really harm it’s original series, it might prevent additional spin-offs of the show, making so many opportunities go to waste. We really wanted to see a series in Oz!!!
Of course only time will tell if any more spin-offs are out of the question, but at least for know we know that the next adventure in wonderland will be it’s last.
Watch (or don’t) the series finale next thursday at 8 PM on ABC.
