Show Summary

Our story begins as many tales of imagination begin . . . . "Once Upon a Time" . . . . only this time it is, "Once Upon a Time in Wonderland". Yes, Wonderland a land filled with marvelous and fantastic places and characters, teeming with adventure and mystery, a land where a beautiful young girl once went . . . . but no one would believe her tale. In fact they tried to say she was a bit insane, troubled, lost in her imagination.

The time was Victorian England and the young and beautiful Alice (played by Sophie Lowe) was about to have her memories forcibly removed by her doctors. That strange land that existed of all places . . . . on the other side of the rabbit hole. A strange place, a place with an invisible cat, a White Rabbit (played by John Lithgow), talking playing cards, a hookah smoking caterpillar, and of course we cannot forget to mention the Red Queen (played by the very lovely Emma Rigby).

Alice knows however that her doctors are about to make her forget all about Wonderland. Alice is especially ready to forget the painful memories of Cyrus the genie (played by Peter Gadiot) who she gave her heart to and yet lost forever when she returned to the "real" world. Perhaps Alice is insane as her doctors would have her believe, perhaps Alice did imagine it all, yet down deep in her heart she knows it was real; but who will save poor Alice from losing all the memories she holds deep in her mind and in her heart?

The White Rabbit along with the Knave of Hearts (played by Michael Socha) arrive just in time to prevent Alice from losing her memories. Now it is time for Alice and her friends to return to Wonderland, so down the three of them tumble, yes down the rabbit hole they go and Alice can continue her marvelous tale of "Once Upon a Time in Wonderland".

  • Great ending to a show :)

    I just loved this show, I have watched Alice, Cyrus, Will and Anastacia struggle week after week. I have suffered with them, hoped for them and was very pleased to have it end like this. The good guys win and the bad get their punishment. I will miss them. Great ending indeed :)

    And who does not want a happy ending :)



    I also want to applaude the writers, actors and others involved. They did a fantastic job making me love, watch and believe. Ofc i could pick on things, but i'm not going to. All in all this has been a great journeymoreless
  • Great show in its own right

    I think Wonderland would've been better received if it had been aired when OUAT was between seasons, the 2 shows don't really compliment each other, Wonderland is darker and more grown up than OUAT but it's an amazing show, such a pity it has been cancelled!

    Also Alice and Will make much more sense than Alice and Cyrus... And Emma Rigby is just lovely :-)
  • A good story

    9.0
    It's a very good story but sometimes you see that it is animated and that is to bad, i would love to see that it is more real!
  • Great idea poorly executed

    I want to like the show, I love Once Upon a Time, but if not for the name you'd never know the two shows had any relation. The writing is bad, it comes off as a very bad rushed teenage drama book. The actors have moments of greatness, but overall are mediocre at best (Jafar is usually good, but the Red Queen is usually overacted and bad). If you like a bad love story it's a great show, if you want substance and story lines look elsewheremoreless
  • LOVE!!!

    To be honest after watching the original OUAT I did not really care for OUAT in wonderland. But I decided to give it a chance and watch the episodes. I instantly fell in love. what the writers did with the story was amazing. Every love story was very well thought out. I really don't understand why people are disliking this so much, i mean its not much different from the original. I would love more from this spin off because i am so into this story line. PLEASE DO NOT CANCEL THIS SHOW!! I want more!moreless
  • THE END

    Once Upon a Time in Wonderland Series Finale Review: And They Lived... On, in Once Upon a Time, If They Possibly Could

    Wonderland's finale was as slapdash, needlessly complicated, and confounding as the rest of the season... in a great way.
