‘Once Upon a Time’ season 4 spoilers: When will the cast return to work?

Once -This has been a nice holiday season for everyone, but for many, Sunday really marks the end of the road for many on vacation. This includes quite a few in the world of TV, and you can count the cast and crew of “Once Upon a Time” among them.

In a post on Twitter, one of the new additions in Victoria Smurfit (Cruella de Vil) confirmed that she is going to be coming back “in a matter of days” to kick off filming again for the ABC show. She has a very big role in the entire second half of this season, and if you are a longtime fan of “101 Dalmatians,” hopefully you are going to enjoy her take on the character, as well. It will contain some familiar elements, but quite a bit different to better establish her origin story.

One of the interesting things about the way in which this show is airing in 2015 is that by the time it actually returns for the final 11 episodes on Sunday, March 1, it is going to be pretty far along in production. The show takes longer to film than it does to air, and when you consider the special effects, the outdoor scenes, and everything else that needs to be done in Vancouver, it is pretty amazing that they are able to do 22 episodes at all (which is in some ways 23 due to “Smash the Mirror”).

We are going to have some further updates soon related to “Once Upon a Time,” so stay tuned.
