The Underworld is a realm on ABC's Once Upon a Time. It is a place where souls of the departed travel to after they die when they have unfinished business, and is identical to Storybrooke.


Former Visitors


  • The Underworld is based on the legendary afterlife from Greek Mythology.
  • The Netherworld is supposed a realm between life and death. In a way, the Underworld is also a sort of limbo, and the souls that go there usually either move on to Mount Olympus or someplace far worse.
  • Regina nicknames it "Underbrooke", due to its uncanny resemblance to Storybrooke.
    • Hades made the Underworld resemble Storybrooke to impress Zelena, who wanted to cast the curse.
