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. 

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.
