Frozen’s Princess Elsa is coming to Once Upon A Time in season 4 and fans have a lot of questions before the show premieres in the fall. Will she be the new icy villain coming to Stroybrooke for vengeance? Not exactly. The executive producers made it clear that they want to honor the character that everyone has fallen in love with. She’s not evil, just misunderstood. Wait, isn’t every villain just ‘misunderstood’? That’s what makes them evil right? Like Zelena wouldn’t have been trying to enact the travel-back-in-time curse if her mother never gave her up and Rumpel didn’t choose her step-sister!
So why is Elsa coming to Storybrooke? What is her agenda? We know she escaped from Rumpels closet of magical object/magic he didn’t understand so what is her magic exactly? Can she make hell freeze over on earth? What was her relationship with Rumpel? And last, but definitely not least, who is going to play the new princess?
While the actress hasn’t been cast ye (the executive producers are taking a little well-deserved hiatus) we have in mind some ladies we’d love to join the small screen. Jennifer Morrison (who plays Emma Swan) admitted to MTV News that she would love Idina Menzel or Kristen Bell, who voiced Princess Anna and Elsa for the movie, to play the part of the icy royal. With their busy schedules, we’re not sure if that’s entirely feasible.
Personally, I’m not a fan of Kristen Bell so I don’t really want her to be a princess of any sort on OUAT and
Adele Dazeem Idina Menzel doesn’t really fit the part for me either.
Here’s some ladies that we think could definitely pull off the icy look.
- Diana Agron– She would make a terrific ice princess. And with Glee coming to an end (let’s be real, their ratings suck) this could just be perfect timing. Plus, her facial features totally fit into the fantasy world. Agron has yet to comment on the casting buzz, but fans have made some killer fan art featuring Agron in full Arendelle attire.
- Amanda Schull– Are you sure she isn’t actually Princess Elsa? Really?? You had me fooled! Schull is best known for her role as Meredith, the student that’s been sleeping with her professor aka Aria’s father on Pretty Little Liars. She has a lot of free time now considering A chased her out of town. The fan art that has Schull in Elsa attire looks so real. And so promising! Plus, we know that she can play a mean girl pretty well. Let’s hope the producers take our advice to heart!
- Sarah Michelle Geller– She was kick ass as Buffy the Vampire Slayer. We know she has a good track record of being on a longtime, supernatural show. While she was the hero on it, we think she could totally handle being the misunderstood villain for a change. She would totally kill it as Elsa. Plus, she needs something a stable at this point. Her first small-screen show Ringer, didn’t make it to season two and neither did her comedy with Robin Williams, The Crazy Ones.
- Elizabeth Mitchell- Personally, I don’t see her as Elsa but she’s totally a contender because she was on Lost. And we know the producers of Once looooooove the people of Lost. I swear, half of that island has been in Storybrooke/ The Enchanted Forest. Plus her show Revolution just got booted so Ms. Mitchell might have some free time on her hands before moving on to bigger things! The odds also might be in her favor.”Once has always been a beautiful home for people who were stranded on the island,” said Kitsis. And Horowitz is aware that there are many folks who would totally love to see Mitchell in that role!
- Blake Lively– Princess? Check! Blake Lively is no stranger to the small screen. I mean she basically built her career from Gossip Girl. Ever since the show ended, she hasn’t really been scoring any major roles. While she did want to do more movies, I feel like this would be the perfect role for the new Ms. Reynolds. I’m sure that Elsa will not be a long-term character. Much like Zelena she will cause her mischief and come to terms with her fate and move on at the end of the season. Plus, Blake would totally rock the long icy dress and blonde curls.
Who do you think should play Elsa? Who would like to see play her? Sound off in the comments below!
Now, onto the spoilers! While co-creator Eddy Kitsis admitted that everyone is taking a break from writing the next season, here’s some things we can look forward to.
Elsa and Rumpelstilskin
Not much has developed on this front except that its obvious these two have a history. “It seems like they’ve crossed paths,” Kitsis said. And you know crossing paths will Rumpel always has consequences. In this case, getting locked up in a chamber for years to come.
Other Frozen characters?
“We would be very disappointed if Elsa was the only one from that world that you saw. Who else may appear, we’re not ready to tell you just yet,” Horowitz admitted.
On the season 3 finale, Emma came back from the past and brought back Marian. Marian is Robin Hood’s wife, whom he thought died many years ago. Truthfully, she probably did, but when Emma went back in time she saved from Regina’s prison and brought her back to the present not knowing who she was. While Regina finally got her happy ending with Robin Hood, it was quickly taken from her when he was reunited with his wife. Now the question is, how does this affect Regina? Will she become evil again? Will she be intent on destroying Emma? It’s really unfortunate because these two have really bonded over Henry.
“Regina’s greatest villain is her own weakness. We want to see how she handles this setback. Does she revert to her old ways? Does she continue on a new path? And also, how does Emma react? Does Emma feel the guilt like her mom did when she found out about Daniel? All that messiness is what we want to get into. We think it’s more complicated than her returning to her vault and killing Emma — unless, of course, she returns to her vault and kills Emma,” Horowitz explained.
As for Robin Hood
Kitsis and Horowitz explained that we will see him struggle with his feelings for both Regina and Marion, his wife. When we left off the two had a blossoming relationship. Regina finally let her wall down and let love in. That’s something she was terrified of doing. She embraced Robin’s child as her own and it seemed like things were finally going to turn around for the once evil queen. But now, Robin Hood has his wife back and he has to make a choice. Does he go back to the woman he once loved, whose kid he’s been raising, or does he stick with the woman he recently fell in love with. The one Tinkerbell told him was his one true love? Gosh, I hope its the latter.
Emma and Hook!
Well their an item now. Emma finally embraced her feelings for Hook and let love in. It was perfect. But on this show, nothing stays perfect for too long.
“What we saw in the finale was the beginning of something, which could go in many different ways and many different avenues down which they could go. It’s not like they’re going to suddenly go to order Chinese and watch Netflix. There’s going to be some challenges ahead and we’re going to have to show you some surprises about where the two of them go,” said Horowitz.
Baby Neal and the Charming’s
We can’t forget that the Charming’s now have a brand new bundle of joy. Literally, it all just seemed to good to be true. How will they deal raising a newborn?
“It will be interesting for them to have a newborn because we’ve never seen them have that experience. They had to put Emma in a wardrobe and she came back to them 28 years later. Don’t forget — they both share one heart. We still have to dive into what that means,” Kitsis explained.

Luke Mitchell Joins ‘Chicago Med’ for Season 9
Let’s all give a warm welcome to a new doctor coming to Gaffney!
Chicago Med is adding Luke Mitchell to the cast, according to Deadline.
The Originals and Blindspot actor will reportedly appear as a character named Dr. Mitch Ripley, described as an “early thirtysomething male Emergency Department doctor” with a past connection to Dr. Charles, played by Oliver Platt.
Word on the street is Ripley has a “troubled background,” which is why he crossed paths with Charles back in the day… and it seems like it might lead to some friction for the two.
He will recur on the medical drama with the potential of being upgraded to a series-regular come season 10, likely pending the reaction from fans.
The former Big Sky star is set to make his debut in the premiere episode of season 9 airing on January 17.
Of course, his addition is necessary as Chicago Med said goodbye to a handful of major cast members over the course of the previous seasons, including Brain Tee who played Ethan Choi, Nick Gehlfuss who starred as Will Halstead, Guy Lockard as Dr. Dylan Scott and Asjha Cooper in the role of Vanessa Taylor.
As of now, the returning cast includes S. Epatha Merkerson (hospital head Sharon Goodwin), Marlyne Barrett (charge nurse Maggie Lockwood), Dominic Rains (Dr. Crockett Marcel), Steven Weber (Dr. Dean Archer) and Jessy Schram (Dr. Hannah Asher).
Season 9 will consist of a 13-episode season, shortened due to the WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes.
‘La Brea’ Canceled at NBC—Here’s What It Means for Season 3
La Brea has officially been canceled by NBC.
The series is gearing up for a third and final season, which will also see fewer episodes.
The news was announced on November 20, and while it’s not what fans wanted to hear, NBC is at least giving fans closure.
The final six episodes will premiere on January 9, 2024. It will be a lead-in to the season’s final two episodes of the hit fall drama Found.
The first and second seasons consisted of 10 and 14 episodes, respectively. The WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes then forced NBC to release the actors from their contracts.
With six episodes to tie up loose ends, let’s hope that the storyline will be wrapped up in a sufficient way that answers any and all questions and leaves fans feeling satisfied.
Zyra Gorecki, who plays Izzy, shared the news on her Instagram, writing, “I’m truly so proud of the work everyone put into #LaBrea Season 3. It was an absolute joy to be a part of. Thank you guys for all of your support these past three years.”

The cast also includes Natalie Zea, Eoin Macken, Jon Seda, Nicholas Gonzalez, Chiké Okonkwo, Jack Martin, Veronica St. Clair, Rohan Mirchandaney, Lily Santiago, Josh McKenzie, Tonantzin Carmelo and Michelle Vergara Moore.
La Brea was NBC’s latest sci-fi series that transported audiences and some Los Angeles residents to 10K B.C. via a mysterious sinkhole. At the center of it is the Harris family, who are eventually reunited when it’s revealed that the patriarch Gavin (Macken) has deep connections to the prehistoric timeline.
As you await the third season, here’s a little season 2 finale refresher!
Is There Going to be a Season 2 of ‘Goosebumps’?
As Goosebumps wrapped up its first season on Disney+ on Nov. 17, things ended on quite a shocking cliffhanger, leading fans to question if a second season was in the works.
And it seems like season 1 is just the start as there are definitely plans to continue on with the series featuring the same cast, which includes Isa Briones, Ana Yi Puig, Zack Morris, Will Price, and Miles McKenna.
With the first chapter closed, a second chapter will explore the aftermath of Briones’ massive decision (you can read our review right here), but first, Disney+ needs to renew the season officially.
As of writing, Goosebumps has not been renewed for season 2, however, everything was created with the intention of there being additional episodes.
And naturally, since the series takes inspiration from the popular R.L. Stine novels, there’s the question of which books will be adapted next to explore the aftermath of Kanduu’s devious plan.
Disney released the first season ahead of Halloween, dropping the first five episodes all at once on October 13 before adopting a weekly release format, which kept up the intrigue.
Through the course of 10 episodes, fans created a special bond with the give teens trying to save their town of Port Lawrence from a tragedy that connected to their parent’s past and included their new high school teacher, Mr. Nathan Bratt played by Justin Long.
Once Disney renews the series and announces a premiere date (which can happen as the WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes are over), we’ll update this post accordingly!
