Wonder is an American fantasy television series that premiered on September 26th 2017 on NBC. The series takes place in Wonderland, a realm with the Underlands, the setting of Lewis Carroll's novel Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, from which the show borrows characters and elements.

Premise

In this fantasy series, Wonderland is embroiled in a civil war. The rebellion, led by Hatter (the former Knave of Hearts with a passion for headwear) and his second in command The March Hare (an anthropomorphic humanoid rabbit), want to remove ruthless The Queen of Hearts from power. But the saviour of the rebellion, prophesied by the Caterpillar, is nowhere to be found. Driven mad by the pressures of fronting a war, Hatter launches a mission to find the destined saviour using the vague clues they have and he forms a taskforce comprising of The White Rabbit, Mrs Dormouse, Tweedle Dum and Tweedle Dee. Oblivious to Hatter's plan, The Queen prepares for a realm-wide massacre.
