Once Upon a Time season 7 is not yet confirmed, but that’s not stopping four stars from extending their contracts.
Once Upon a Time stars are not letting a renewal stand in the way of their negotiations. According to EW, four of the series’ leading stars are already working on their contracts.
Jennifer Morrison, Lana Parrilla, Colin O’Donoghue, and Robert Carlyle are the first of the original cast seeking a return in season 7.
While these core four characters have the potential to drive the series into the future all on their own, Once Upon a Time is an ensemble show.
Ginnifer Goodwin (Snow White), and her real life Prince Charming, Josh Dallas are not in talks at this moment. Neither are Jared Gilmore (Henry Mills) or Emilie de Ravin (Belle French). There is no need to raise alarm quite yet.
However, talks of these negotiations pose the question — what will season 7 look like?
‘Once Upon a Time’ season 7 renewal speculation
Earlier this year, creators Adam Horowitz and Eddie Kitsis were still pitching their ideas for season 7 to the network. Included in their rough idea was the potential to use season 7 as a reset. Anyone who watches Once Upon a Time is well aware that the storylines of the current cast are so twisted it’s hard to tell where one person’s backstory ends and another begins!
With a new cast, new stories, and maybe a new realm, the possibilities are endless. This is a rich world, but in order to make progress into the wealth of untapped potential, it might be time to cut ties with some of the current heroes.
Even without the promise of season 7, the creators are gearing up to bring some fresh faces into the mix. Andrew J. West (The Walking Dead) and Alison Fernandez (Jane the Virgin) will join in the season 6 finale.
But let’s focus on the present. There are still plenty of questions Once Upon a Time has left to answer to in season 6! What actually happened to David’s father? Will the Evil Queen remain a snake? And what exactly will the musical episode entail? Stay tuned, Oncers!
