Once Upon a Time Season 7 status is still up in the air. There is a possibility that the series might not return this fall, and if it returns too, Jennifer Morrison, who plays Emma Swan aka the savior, might not headline it.

An unconfirmed report claims that Jennifer Morrison has signed her new contract for a potential Once Upon a Time Season 7, but she has signed as a part-timer, which means she is likely to appear in limited episodes. Vancouver-based Larry Andreutti posted on his Twitter feed the contract status of Jennifer Morrison, Lana Parilla (Regina/Evil Queen), and Colin O'Donoghue (Captain Hook), Spoiler TV reports. ABC or the cast members have not officially confirmed anything.

According to Andreutti, Colin O' Donoghue and Jennifer Morrison have signed their new contracts, but the latter has signed part-time. And Lana Parilla has agreed to sign her new Once Upon a Time contract with certain conditions.

As reported previously by Inquisitr, Ginnifer Goodwin and Josh Dallas told a Vancouver-based autograph collector-seller that they would be happy to guest star in a new season of Once Upon a Time if they were invited. He posted on his Instagram account that the two stars, who are married to each other in real life, were signing autographs on their final return to Vancouver, where the filming of the series takes place. The post has since been deleted, but someone took a screenshot of the original post.

Meanwhile, replying to fans on his Twiter feed, co-creator Adam Horowitz says that he hopes that there is Season 7 of Once Upon a Time.

TV Line, on the other hand, reported that despite low ratings, the Season 7 reset might see the series premiering this fall.

There's hope within ABC that a much-buzzed-about Season 7 reset could breathe new life into the waning franchise.
"Regardless of what we decide to do at the end of this season, I think [co-creators Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis] think they would put a little bit of a bow here, and then there is a next piece that comes after that. There will be a little bit of closure in this particular narrative."

Andrew J. West and Alison Fernandez have been roped in to appear as guest stars in the final episode. TV Line described West's character as someone who was once an optimistic man but has now become friendless and a cynical recluse.

"A strong yet vulnerable leading man in his late 20s to mid-30s, a gent who was once optimistic and hopeful but now is a friendless, cynical recluse. That said, he still possesses a dormant, deep-seated spark of hope that waits for the right person to reignite it."

Once Upon a Time airs Sundays on ABC.
