ABC has had to pull back the Once Upon a Time season 3 cast photos due to unexpected fandom backlash.
Once Upon a Time fans love their show and its characters, and have reportedly responded so negatively to the season 3 cast photoset that ABC has pulled the photographs from their press site.
Thus writes SpoilerTV, referencing the negative response on their own comments section as well as social media outlets Twitter and Facebook.
On Tumblr, fans have likewise been expressing their disappointment with what is deemed the poorly photoshopped, recycled-looking stills.
One Tumblr user writes, “I’m kind of disappointed in them. I was expecting a little more creativity.”
You can still see the full set of Once Upon a Time season 3 promotional images on SpoilerTV, and judge for yourself.
Was ABC right to pull these images back, and do you think we’ll see more carefully crafted images soon?
Once Upon a Time season 3 premieres Sunday, September 29, airing at 8/7c on ABC. The first episode is titled “The Heart of the Truest Believer.”
