ABC Considers Once Upon a Time Spinoff, Recasting Show's Mad Hatter Role

Once Upon A Time, Sebastian Stan ABC

Once Upon a Time's Mad Hatter may get his own fairytale ending.

ABC is considering creating a spinoff centered around the character, and in a twist, replacing the actor who originally played the role in the fantasy TV drama, an ABC rep confirms to E! News. 

We dropped some spoilers this week for what's coming up on Once Upon a Time.

Sebastian Stan played the Mad Hatter during his six-episode stint on the show, but because he reportedly wasn't available to commit to a full spinoff series due to scheduling conflicts, ABC has begun to search for a new leading man for the possible show, according to Deadline

The former Gossip Girl star made his debut on Once Upon a Time in season one, in an episode called "Hat Trick" which showed off the world of Wonderland.

So, tell us, what do you think about ABC moving forward with a Mad Hatter spinoff without Stan? Who do you think should replace him? Sound off in the comments.
