ABC's unveiled the first trailer for Once Upon a Time: Wonderland. It's a spinoff of the popular drama that brings fairy tales into the modern day. Wonderland sets itself apart by taking place in Victorian England. It centers on Alice as she tells her story of love and loss in a magical land.

As you might expect, not everyone believes her account. When Alice tells her family about a place with an invisible cat, a hookah-smoking caterpillar and playing cards that talk, they find it hard to believe. Can you blame them? Because of that, she's placed into a mental facility.

Alice yearns for freedom but can't forget about Cyrus ((Peter Gadiot), a genie she fell in love with. She assumes he's dead but learns he's actually alive and kicking. With the help of the Knave of Hearts (BBC's Being Human's Michael Socha) and the White Rabbit (John Lithgow), she returns to Wonderland on a mission.

Once Upon a Time: Wonderland will air Thursdays at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC. 

Will you be tuning in to the spinoff?
