The Little Mermaid is making a comeback during Once Upon a Time Season 4 and Poseidon is leading the charge.
Ernie Hudson (OZ, The Secret Life of the American Teenager) will be portraying King Poseidon, and there's a bit of a surprise on the way, as well.
Hudson will make his first appearance as King Poseidon in Once Upon a Time Season 4 Episode 15. In addition to being a powerful deity, he'll also be the father to Merrin Dungey's Ursula!
As a part of the overall story arc, JoAnna Garcia Swisher will also be returning in her role as Ariel.
