ABC Cancels Once Upon a Time in Wonderland

By Kaitlin Thomas

ABC has sent Alice and the rest of Once Upon a Time in Wonderland down the metaphorical rabbit hole to its death, according to TV Guide. The ratings of the spin-off of the network's popular fairy-tale series Once Upon a Time smelled worse than a rain-soaked Cheshire Cat: Last night’s episode pulled in only 3.3 million viewers for a measly 0.9 rating in the 18-49 demographic. While those numbers might've cut it on The CW, they were nowhere near high enough for ABC. 

I'd be remiss if I didn't point out that Once Upon a Time in Wonderland was always meant to exist as a self-contained, single-season story about Alice's (Sophie Lowe) attempt to save the love of her life (a genie named Cyrus played by Peter Gadiot). However, the producers hinted last August that if the show was successful, it had the potential to earn a second season that would feature an entirely new adventure. Now that its chances of success are smaller than Alice after a few sips of shrinky juice, the series finale will air next Thursday, April 3 at 8pm.

    You would think that many stay home on a Saturday night to try a/the show out on that night since there is never ever anything good to watch. I will be missing some of the characters but not all. Another show that I like has faded into the sunset. Total bumme!

    it's a decent show. but i think the woman who played the queen was miscast.
    she's not a bad actress but having her play the queen is a role that just didn't suit her i don't think. in short it had promise i think.

    ABC has got to do Once Upon A Time: The Mickey Mouse Club Show.

    Ratings ignore downloads, streaming etc. The whole system is archaic.

    This is what I've been saying all along.

    Eventually shows will be watched mostly online, the TV execs need to get with the 21st century.

    I thought the story was coming to its natural conclusion anyway. Through I feared they have tried lay the foundations to extend the current plot lines.
