Description: In Victorian England, young and beautiful Alice (Sophie Lowe) tells an impossible tale of a strange new land that exists on the other side of a rabbit hole. An invisible cat, a hookah-smoking caterpillar and playing cards that can talk are just some of the fantastic things she’s seen during her adventure. Surely this troubled girl must be insane. Her doctors intend to cure her with a treatment that will make her forget—everything. Alice seems ready to put it all behind her, especially the painful memory of the genie she fell in love with and lost forever, the handsome and mysterious Cyrus (Peter Gadiot). But in her heart Alice knows this world is real, and just in the nick of time the sardonic Knave of Hearts (Michael Socha) and the irrepressible White Rabbit (John Lithgow) arrive to save her from her fate. Together the trio will take a tumble down the rabbit hole to a Wonderland where nothing is impossible. ABC.com

Why Was It Cancelled? This spin-off from Once Upon A Time had the odds against it going into its first season. ABC scheduled it in the difficult Thursday 8 PM EST hour where that network had not had much success in some time and where both The Last Resort and Zero Hour sunk the prior season. As expected, Once Upon A Time in Wonderland bowed to poor ratings and it saw its numbers sink from there. It was originally billed as a limited run series (though with the potential to continue it if the ratings were good), and ABC decided to go no further with the show. It will likely get tacked on to the eventual syndication run of Once Upon A Time, though.
