She will appear in Once Upon a Time Season 3, as the show descends into Neverland.

Creator Adam Horowitz revealed the enchanting news Friday afternoon via Twitter:

"So thrilled to welcome @JoAnnaLGarcia  to the #OnceUponATime family as our Ariel!

"Can't wait to bring you under the sea!"

Joanna Garcia, 34, also Tweeted Friday, "Excited 2 share that I'll be swimming to @OnceABC as 'Ariel'! So honored 2 play such a beloved character!"

With Once Upon a Time Season 3 kicking off Sunday, September 29 on ABC, the show's producers have been teasing fans with the identity of Ariel for months.

Was the casting worth the wait? We can't imagine it won't be ...

No word yet on if Prince Eric will also make an appearance.
