Get ready to see some new faces in Storybrooke (or, um, maybe Hyperion Heights?)
Among the cast members joining the series when it returns this fall is Reign star Adelaide Kane, whose CW drama just wrapped up last month. She’ll be joined by Burn Notice alum Gabrielle Anwar, Premium Rush’s Dania Ramirez, Chicago Med’s Mekia Cox, and Wasted’s Rose Reynolds.
The casting announcement comes just days after Horowitz shared two script teases from the first episode of season 7, titled “Hyperion Heights,” which revealed that despite the many changes coming to OUAT, the drama will still pick up in Storybrooke when it returns. Though, it remains to be seen whether it will continue to be set there considering the season 6 finale introduced fans to an adult Henry (played by newcomer Andrew J. West) residing in Seattle.
With the departure of many OUAT vets back in May — including Jennifer Morrison, Ginnifer Goodwin, Josh Dallas, and more — fans have been eager to find out how the series will reboot itself come season 7. The latest round of casting news certainly provides a big clue, and indicates that the show will be introducing a host of new (hopefully) fan favorite characters to round out the returning cast, which includes Colin O’Donoghue as Hook. However, fans will have to be a bit more patient to find out who the new actors have been cast to play — and whether any of them will be portraying classic Disney characters.
