'Once Upon a Time' Creators Give Season 7 Hints & Details

The season six finale of Once Upon a Time aired last night and six of the main cast members had their final episode on the ABC series. Now, the creators of the show are opening up about the upcoming seventh season, which will essentially be a reboot.

Edward Kitsis says the upcoming season will “kind of” be a reboot while Adam Horowitz says he hesitates to use that word.

“We’re more thinking about it as a hybrid of a lot of things,” Adam told THR. “We’re paying homage to the original premise, but there are certain characters who are returning and some who are not. It’s a combination of a lot of things, but what we’re trying to do is go in a new direction but stay true to the spirit of what the show has always been.”

There was a major time shift in the finale that introduced us to an adult Henry, played by The Walking Dead‘s Andrew J. West, whose long-lost daughter Lucy arrives at his door and leads him into a journey to save his family.

“We want to keep under wraps how we get to Henry grown up and what that means for Regina (Lana Parrilla) and Hook (Colin O’Donoghue) and Rumple (Robert Carlyle), who are returning regulars. There’s stuff that we’re excited to unveil, but it’s not about recasting so much as we’re hoping to open up the universe more,” Adam added.

Now that we know Henry has a daughter, you can expect to meet his daughter’s mother!

“[Lucy's] mother and Henry will be a very epic love story in the tradition of Once Upon a Time, just like his grandparents. We can’t forget, he’s the grandchild of Prince Charming, which technically makes him Prince Charming Jr,” Edward said before Adam added, “Junior junior. Prince Charming III.”

    How can Hook return and not Emma… seriously seasons of watching their love story and finally they get married and now Hook is returning but not Emma. I love me some Captain Hook but I can’t imagine they didn’t get a happily ever after. Good luck to this show going fwd….

    Say what you want. I’m super excited for season 7! Yes I’ll miss seeing Emma and Zelena and Belle and the Charmings and teenage Henry but it still looks like a fun season! Regina has always been my favorite character so I’m excited she’s returning!

    I kinda get the feeling Moana is Lucys mother.

    Im sad that so many of my favs have left the show now after season 6 but im super interested in seeing where they go with Henry and his daughter. Im worried it wont go down too well with the hardcore once fans not having Emma around. I dont really understand how they can have hook in Season 7 but not Emma unless they split and she moved away during the time gap. The finale showed Henry/Lucy in the enchanted forest at the beginning of the episode so they go back their at some point. Maybe Emma stayed with her parents in the EF.

    I’ve always looked forward to watching this show. However as the seasons progressed it seemed that J.Morrison & J.Gilmore were the two worst actors on the cast; they spoke their lines like their mouths were wired shut and were about as expressionless as cardboard cutouts. My only hope is that Season 7 won’t be a repeat of the last 6 seasons.

    They’ll likely come up with some storyline of Emma dying during childbirth, leaving Hook a widower.
