What’s This TV Show About?
A fairy tale drama airing on the ABC television network, the seventh season of Once Upon a Time stars Lana Parrilla, Robert Carlyle, Colin O’Donoghue, Andrew J. West, Gabrielle Anwar, Dania Ramirez, Alison Fernandez, and Mekia Cox. The many guest stars this season include former series regulars Jennifer Morrison, Emilie de Ravin, Jared Gilmore, and Rebecca Mader.
Once Upon a Time, season seven, is a reboot of the story fans watched during the series’ first six installments. With Emma (Morrison), Snow (Ginnifer Goodwin), Charming (Josh Dallas), and Belle (de Ravin), off the canvas and young Henry Mills (Gilmore) now an adult (West), the page has turned. Now, seasoned Enchanted Forest denizens must help Henry and his daughter, Lucy (Fernandez), battle evil and return hope to their world and ours. And of course, they’ll have to deal with yet another pesky curse.
