Once Upon a Time’s mid-season finale was emotional to say the least. We see Dark Swan desperately trying to save the love of her life Hook from the darkness and the only way to save him and everyone else she loves is to kill him. At the end of the episode we see our heroes on their way to the underworld to save Killian and bring him back, and that could mean only one thing… Hades is coming to Storybrooke!

That’s right season 5b has found their villain, king of the underworld Hades! The actor portraying the fiery villain is Ally McBeal actor Greg Germann.

He will premiere in the first episode back from hiatus.

It was also revealed in November that the show had cast Jonathan Whitesell and Kacey Rohl as Hercules and Megara set to appear in the 13th episode of season 5b.

So it really comes as no surprise that they would be looking at the ruler of the underworld as their big bad.

Other than the residents of Storybrooke traveling to the underworld to save their beloved pirate we don’t really know what kind of role the new cast will play in the new season but it sure is sounding good!

Once Upon A Time returns Sunday March 6.

What do you think about the casting? Are you ready to see the story of Hercules come to OUAT?
