‘Once Upon A Time’: Wicked Witch Arrives In New Season 3B Promo

Watch the latest ‘Once Upon A Time’ promo and share your thoughts. We promise, it’s wicked-good.

“Wicked is coming…” Never before have three words — and 12 seconds of faceless footage — gotten me as excited as this new promo for the second half of Once Upon A Time‘s third season. The video, which first aired in the final days of 2013, features Rebecca Mader waltzing into Storybrooke as none other than the Wicked Witch of the West.

Despite the Wicked Witch being one of the most popular characters in literary history, very little is known about what she’ll be up to on Once Upon A‘s sister site TVLine is speculating that she’ll turn out to be the sister of Storybrooke’s resident sorceresses Regina (Lana Parrilla), but that has yet to be confirmed.

News of Rebecca’s casting first broke in early December, when many fans — myself included — speculated that she’d be playing notorious fur aficionada Cruella de Vil. Her identity was finally revealed in the promo following the Dec. 15 midseason finale.

As always, Once executive producers Adam Horowitz and Eddy Kitsis are keeping much of season 3B under wraps, but we do know a little bit about what we can expect when the show returns in March.

Along with the Wicked Witch’s arrival, we’ll also witness the return of several fan-favorite characters, including Prince Phillip (Julian Morris) and Princess Aurora (Sara Bolger). No word yet on whether or not we’ll see Aurora’s admirer Mulan, but considering Jamie Chung‘s busy schedule — she’s on the new NBC series Believe — I wouldn’t hold my breath.
