Once Upon a Time is getting a visit from one of the gods of hell, the Greek lord of the underworld, Hades. When the series heads to hell in the 100th episode, they'll be greeted by Greg Germann as Disney's version of Hades.

The character appeared in Hercules, voiced by James Woods in the 1997 Disney animated film. EW revealed Germann's look, including the signature blue flames atop his head, with some quotes from those involved.

"Anything goes," Germann said of the character. "The creators bring him to life on the page with the same out-of-the-box unpredictability that they bring to the rest of the show. They strike the perfect balance between keeping things grounded and letting things fly — sometimes literally."


Going into the underworld means they'll also see some characters who've shuffled the mortal coil return, including Cora, Cruelle de Vil, and Peter Pan, played by Robbie Kay fresh off his run of Heroes Reborn.
