“Archeology is the search for fact, not truth. If it’s truth you’re interested in, Dr. Tyree’s Philosophy class is right down the hall. So forget any ideas you’ve got about lost cities, exotic travel, and digging up the world. We do not follow maps to buried treasure, and “X” never, ever marks the spot.”
It’s not long until Once Upon A Time returns to our screens for its seventh season, and it’s all change for some of our favourite characters!
In these newly released photos, it shows off some familiar faces and a couple of new ones too…
Lana Parilla returns as the not-so Evil Queen in season 7 and is only one of three of the original cast to returns as a regular this season. It is believed that Regina will be living as a bartender called Ronnie in the character’s new home of Hyperion Heights. We have also been promised that Regina’s days of evil are definitely still behind her!
Colin O’Donoghue returns as Captain Hook and one of the main mysteries this season will, of course, be “What happened to Emma Swan?” as the last we saw of Hook and Emma was them settling into married life but with Emma Swan actress Jennifer Morrison only returning for one episode in season 7, what will become of her husband? Well, it’s been confirmed that Hook will be taking the job of a police officer called Rogers in Hyperion Heights.
The last member of the original cast to return for season 7 is, of course, the shows most popular anti-hero, Mr Gold, played by Robert Carlyle. Little is known of what will become of Mr Gold in Hyperion Heights, but last month it was revealed that Emelie De Ravin will be returning to the series for a couple of episodes who played Gold’s wife Belle, as will Giles Matthey who plays the couples son Gideon, let’s hope Gold is finally putting his family before magic!
Finally, we have this gorgeous family portrait of newcomers Andrew J. West who will be playing an adult version of Henry Mills; who was played by Jared Gilmore in the first six seasons of “Once” and who will return for cameo appearances in season 7. Next to Henry is Dania Ramirez, who will be playing a brand new version of Cinderella, who is also the mother of Henry’s daughter Lucy, who will be played by Alison Fernandez and who was glimpsed in the season 6 finale going to meet her father and bring him on board for another adventure!
We know that Lady Tremaine, the evil stepmother of Cinderella is the big bad of season 7, and we also know that we finally are meeting Princess Tiana from Princess and the Frog and an updated version of Rapunzel.
Once Upon A Time, Season 7 will return to ABC on October 6 in its new Friday night slot in the USA and October 11 on Netflix in the UK.
