Fans were upset when it was announced that Jennifer Morrison (Emma), Emilie de Ravin (Belle), Ginnifer Goodwin (Snow), Josh Dallas (Charming), and Rebecca Mader (Zelena) would not be returning to Once Upon A Time. Jared S. Gilmore is also not coming back, but Andrew J. West will be playing an adult Henry in the new season.
Now there is news about building the new cast. According to Deadline, several new additions have been announced. Who is joining OUAT in Season 7?
Dania Ramirez from Devious Maids is coming on board. So is Gabrielle Anwar, which some fans might know from Burn Notice. Both are series regulars, but who they will be playing is still being kept a tightly held secret. However, some viewers are wondering if one of them will be the mother of Lucy, Henry’s daughter.
As for recurring roles, Mekia Cox of Chicago Med, Rose Reynolds from Wasted, Adelaide Kane of Reign have been selected to join the new season of Once Upon A Time. Just like with the series regulars, no details of who they will play or character descriptions have been provided.
Along with Henry, OUAT Season 7 will continue with Hook (Colin O’Donoghue), Regina (Lana Parrilla), and Rumple (Robert Carlyle). The showrunners have promised fans that they will find out what happened to the disappearing characters. They will be mentioned and all have agreed to appear in at least one episode of the new season. However, that doesn’t mean they will be seen.
The new season will focus on Henry finding out he has a daughter. Many are wondering if he truly doesn’t remember Lucy or if he is pretending. It sounds a lot like in the first season, when Henry showed up at Emma’s door. She acted like she didn’t know she had a child, too. Eventually, the truth came out and he ended up with more than one mother.
