Now that the Frozen characters have been on Once Upon a Time for a while, the hullabaloo surrounding their appearances has died down. Now, ABC is back to adding veteran—and dare I say more nefarious—characters from the Disney canon.
We’ve compiled a list of the current TV shows that we feel have officially jumped the track. They’ve been on too long or maybe their characters have started to make nonsensical decisions. Perhaps their writing staff has been cut due to budget restraints. Whatever the reason, these are the nine shows on TV that are officially off the rails.
ABC’s Once Upon a Time has been all about Frozen this fall, creating episodes that pick up soon after the events in Disney’s hit movie. However, moving forward, the show will go back to pulling from the rest of Disney’s lengthy character lineup. This week, ABC signed on a brand new actress for a recurring role.
Last spring, Once Upon A Time creators Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz began working with Disney to figure out a way to bring the wildly popular Frozen characters to the small screen. The plot takes the original characters from the franchise and reimagines them in the world Once Upon A Time has created.
ABC’s fairytale drama, Once Upon A Time, has made a big show of the fact that characters from Frozen will pop up during Season 4. Over the last few months, there’s been plenty of hullaballoo surrounding the Frozen casting news, but this week ABC has finally put together an official trailer for the new season of the hit series. In it, we get some weapon shots from the likes of Snow, Charming and Hook, some wry comments from Regina and a look at a glistening and glimmering Storybrooke, courtesy of Frozen’s Elsa.
The series recently added two more formerly animated characters for Season 4, as Shameless star Tyler Jacob Moore will cast as the dashingly devious Prince Hans, and veteran actor John Rhys-Davies (the Lord of the Rings franchise) has been cast as the wise rock troll Pabbie.
Georgina Haig is playing Elsa, and she rocks the right braid and dress. Fans who saw last season’s big finale episode, which took a peek at Elsa’s dress, probably already knew the show was going to be faithful to the costuming in the movie; still it’s nice to see the official look.
There’s no doubt that Disney’s Frozen has become a bit of a phenomenon. The movie has already made more than a billion dollars for the entertainment company, and its related products and songs have lined toy aisles and held a steady spot on the airwaves for months. The characters are so popular, Once Upon A Time producers Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz decided to add them to the ABC drama this fal
ABC's Once Upon a Time has found its Anna and Kristoff. The Frozen characters will make the transition from animated to live-action in the form of newcomer Elizabeth Lail and Greek veteran Scott Michael Foster in ABC's popular live-action fairy tale-inspired drama series. The announcement was made today following word last spring that there would be a Frozen crossover happening during Season 4.
ABC has released its 2014-2015 lineup. It includes a slight move for Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., which will return for Season 2 this fall, but will air an hour later than usual. Meanwhile, Scandal and Grey's Anatomy have been shifted up on the Thursday night schedule.
ABC and Disney are really great at cross-promoting popular franchises. Once Upon A Time is another series that has brought newfound relevance to some popular Disney characters. The latest character to join the Once Upon a Time cast is a cold character from Frozen, a character who will play a bigger role in the show’s Season 4.
While we might have expected renewals for shows like Grey's Anatomy, Scandal and Modern Family, the fate of some of ABC's new series was a bit less certain. But word is coming down the pipeline for many of them, and it's good news for Resurrection and The Goldbergs, which join Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. among ABC's freshman series that will be back for Season 2 in the 2014-2015 season.
The end is near! Scandal, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Castle and other ABC series' season finales have been scheduled. ABC announced the finale dates today, starting with The Neighbors, which will wrap up its second season in April. The finales that follow include Scandal, Last Man Standing, Resurrection and Once Upon a Time.
More is not always better. Contrary to what those fine folks over at AT&T would have you believe, there is a limit to the amount we can handle of most things. Remember that chubby kid from Matilda? He learned there’s such a thing as too much cake after that heinous principal force fed pounds of it to him.
If you’re a Sunday night drama on ABC or CBS, you’re probably having the best day ever. Because the numbers are in and dramas are all on the upswing, gobbling viewers away (even when the footballers are at play). Sorry, comedy — looks like Sunday just ain’t your day. The last night of the weekend has become a hotbed for dramatic activities and with the revelations from this weekend’s ratings it’s safe to assume that comedy should just look to broadcast itself elsewhere.
