It’s a ladies world in Once Upon A Time Season 7.
With most of the original cast departing the show – some by their own decision, some not so much, the ABC show had to repopulate before Season 7. And hey, it’s kind of good that they’re doing it with some diverse actresses, even if it also feels a bit like too little, too late.
Among the actresses joining the show, according to TVLine, are Gabrielle Anwar (Burn Notice), Dania Ramirez (Devious Maids), Adelaide Kane (Reign), Mekia Cox (Chicago Med) and actress Rose Reynolds (Poldark).
Season 7 of the show will revolve around a grown-up Henry (Andrew J. West) and his daughter Lucy (Alison Fernandez). The logline insists that “the residents of the Enchanted Forest face their greatest challenge yet” as theEvil Queen, Captain Hook and Rumplestiltskin join forces with Henry and Lucy “on an epic quest to once again bring hope to their world and ours. Along the way, fairy tale characters new and old search for true love, find adventure and once again take sides in the struggle of good against evil, as classic tales are once more twisted and reimagined.”
The show will return to ABC in a new timeslow this fall – Fridays at 8/7c. No premiere date has yet been announced.
