Jane Espenson reveals a host of princesses awaits Once Upon A Time season 2

Looking forward to Once Upon A Time season two? Thinking how do we move on from THAT finale?

Consulting producer Jane Espenson has given a few hints about what we can expect from the fantasy series upon its return:  “We’re picking up right where we left off, but where we left off was in the middle of a veer in a different direction.”

Reiterating there will be no time jump – but definite change: “Season 2 will be different than Season 1.”

Espenson also revealed to TVLine that new characters have been discussed at length, with Ariel aka The Little Mermaid (not the washing powder) being the frontrunner: “I would hope Ariel would join the show,” adding, “She’s one we’ve definitely talked about.

“There are a whole lot of princesses we haven’t seen — like Aurora, Rapunzel and Jasmine,” she adds. “And it’s hard to look at that list without going, ‘Well, what about Goldilocks?!’ And they’d all be good, because what we do is take them and go, ‘Well, the thing you never knew about Little Miss Muffet is… ‘”

Once Upon a Time is currently airing Sundays in the UK on Channel 5.
