Once Upon a Time returns on September 29, 2013. The third season will give eleven episodes without break, a winter hiatus, and then eleven more episodes without break. We’ve heard OUAT will return on March 9 to finish the third season.
At San Diego Comic-Con, Michael Raymond James (Neal) and Kitsis and Horowitz again referred to 300 and “a couple hundred” years tied to Baelfire and Rumplestiltskin.
Kitsis and Horowitz said that Peter Pan was always their favorite, and they’re thrilled to have the legal issues out of the way.
Colin O’Donoghue (Hook) said that his character’s personality was inspired a little bit by The Dread Pirate Roberts, from The Princess Bride.

Lana Parilla (Regina) said her favorite kill coming is coming in the third season. This doesn’t mean it’s the most significant, but perhaps her favorite method or most fulfilling thus far. We think this could be Greg.
Kitsis and Horowitz said, “we’ve seen the shadow … but we haven’t seen Peter Pan.” It seems that Robbie Kay has been cast as Peter Pan. K&H said Peter Pan may be scary, but didn’t necessarily indicate evil. He has a complicated past.
There will be different areas of Neverland, some of them familiar, but with K&H’s spin. In Neverland, “anything can happen.” Could this mean that death is not possible? After all, death would seem an escape from Neverland, which no one leaves.
We’ll meet Tinkerbell in the third season, but “You have to believe to see her.” She also has “a surprising connection to someone” to someone who was on the panel: Hook, Neal, Belle, MM, Emma, David, Mr. Gold, and Regina. The likely candidates are Hook or Neal, because of their past in Neverland. But that wouldn’t be “surprising.”
Season three’s focus will be on Neverland. This is a place you can only face your past, because there is no future. So we’ll see a lot of character exporation as the characters face their pasts.
Emile de Ravin (Belle) will still be a regular. Maybe #BelleforMayor? There seemed to be a hint that Belle and Rumple may not find their happy ending, or just a tease that it would be played with.
K&H said it would be great to see Jorge Garcia (Anton the giant) again, but he may not be available.
There was a reason Neal landed in Enchanted Forest, and we’ll learn that in the upcoming season.
About the mermaid Regina was looking for, Kitsis hinted, again, that anything can happen in Neverland.
We’ve also heard that we’ll see Sidney Glass or the Genie again in season three.
Hunter also shared some casting news.
