THE END: Fairy Tales Series ONCE UPON A TIME Will Get Its Happily Ever After in Season Seven

Once Upon a Time will come to an end with season 7.

From showrunners Adam Horowitz and Eddy Kitsis.

In many ways Once Upon a Time got its series finale in season 6 with Emma Swan’s wedding to Killian “Hook” Jones. Season 7 is an extra, with some familiar characters in some unfamiliar roles.

Adult Henry (Andrew J. West)’s adventures in a new Fairy Tale Land result in a new curse for him and his family as well as his adoptive Mom Regina (Lana Parrilla), his grandfather Rumplestiltskin (Robert Carlyle) and his stepfather’s doppelganger Wish Realm Hook (Colin O’Donoghue) — Regina is Seattle bar owner Roni, Rumple is Seattle detective Weaver and Wish Hook is his detective partner Rogers in the fictitious neighbourhood of Hyperion Heights.

The next twelve episodes will wrap up their stories in Hyperion Heights and the new Fairy Tale Land and give almost everyone their happy endings. Hopefully in Storybrooke.

I’ll never forget the day I walked in to audition as Evil Queen Regina for Eddy and Adam. I was wearing all black (of course) and had this crazy, dreadlock looking wrap draped over my shoulders. I had no idea where this pilot was going to go but I knew it was something special. I walked out of the audition room and down the hall was an old photograph of the OG Evil Queen herself. I knew then, something magical was about to begin. It’s been 7 years now and I couldn’t be prouder of what we all have created. Adam and Eddy had this crazy idea in their minds years ago and it turned into a fantastical phenomenon. This show has touched so many people’s lives, changed them for the better, has inspired us to grow in ways we never could’ve imagined. It’s brought hope, joy, friendships and love to so many. I am lucky and blessed to have been a part of it for 7 years. I want to thank the cast, our incredibly, hard working crew and the writers for your dedication and hard work over the years. Thank you to the studio and network for believing in us, supporting us and giving us a home to tell our stories. But most importantly, I want to thank our fans. We honestly wouldn’t be here without your love, support and loyalty to ONCE. Thank you for standing by us all of these years. We hope we’ve made you proud and that the magic this show has brought in to your lives never dies. Thank you for all you’ve given back to us in return and always remember to keep that magic alive. Signed with love, respect, gratitude and honor, Lana ❤️ #OUAT 🙏

While the showrunners stopped short of promising a return of all the original cast, the series finale will feature “some familiar faces from the first six years”.

Filming of season 7 is expected to wrap April 2nd in metro Vancouver.

Note: I’ve covered Once Upon a Time since they filmed the pilot with Emma Swan and her yellow VW Bug in 2011.

New episodes of Once Upon a Time return Friday, March 2nd.
