If you love some of the recurring characters featured on the first season of “Once Upon a Time” then the following story is probably going to make you rather happy. After all, who wouldn’t want to see more Sebastian Stan?
According to a new report from TVLine, Stan will be returning during the show’s second season as Jefferson and his alter ego the Mad Hatter. However, it’s not currently clear just when he will be turning up, or how many episodes he will be involved in. The last we saw him, he was desperate in part to try and enact some revenge on Regina due to what she took away from him — but of course, it was rather complicated and he was operating as a double agent of sorts.
Jefferson is just one of many familiar faces from season 1 who will be turning up again — Emilie de Ravin and Meghan Ory were each promoted to series regulars, and we know that Giancarlo Esposito would like to come back if his schedule from “Revolution” allows it to happen. Meanwhile, some new faces coming on the show this year include Colin O’Donoghue (Captain Hook), Sarah Bolger (Sleeping Beauty), and Julian Harris (Prince Phillip).
Stan has been featured this summer on USA’s “Political Animals,” but given its low rated the “limited series event” is unlikely to be picked up for additional episodes despite boasting an all-star cast including Sigourney Weaver and Josh Wolk.
