What’s in store for the new season of Once Upon a Time? Recently, executive producers Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis spoke with Entertainment Weekly about season seven of the ABC TV show.
The upcoming season will see the fantasy drama reboot itself with new characters and a new storyline that centers on an adult Henry (Andrew J. West). The cast also includes Dania Ramirez, Adelaide Kane, Mekia Cox, and Rose Reynolds in addition to returning stars Lana Parrilla, Robert Carlyle, and Colin O’Donoghue.
At Comic-Con, it was revealed that Regina (Parrilla), Hook (O’Donoghue), and Rumple (Carlyle) will be the victims of a new curse in season seven of Once Upon a Time. Speaking to EW, EP Horowitz says the curse comes from the show’s new villain, Lady Tremaine (Gabrielle Anwar):
As often is the case on Once Upon a Time, there’s more than meets the eye to what we know about the character. Lady Tremaine doesn’t like Cinderella very much and she’s got an agenda. But there is something broiling beneath that’s personal and painful that is driving all of this.”
She’s somebody who wants to get to the top and will use any means necessary. So why it’s important for her to be royal, why it’s important for her to crush everyone else, is the story of the year. In true Once Upon a Time fashion, evil isn’t born, it’s made, and we’ll see that with her as well.”
The new season of Once Upon a Time premieres on ABC on October 6th at 8 p.m. ET/PT.
