The reboot is not the only change in “Once Upon A Time” season 7. The show reportedly has a different air time. The TV series will air on Fridays moving forward instead of the regular Sunday slot the fans are used to.

According to a report by Entertainment Weekly, the show will air on Fridays at 8 p.m. ET. The length of the season will continue to be the same as before at 22 episodes. The writers are currently working on the script, and production is yet to begin in Vancouver. The producers are yet to announce an exact release date.

Series regulars Ginnifer Goodwin (Snow White), Josh Dallas (Prince Charming), Jared Gilmore (Henry Mills), Rebecca Mader (Wicked Witch) and Emilie de Ravin (Belle) have said goodbye to the show. However, fans could still get to know what’s happening with these characters, since the producers can bring them back in the future if the story demands it. Jennifer Morrison will be reprising her role of Emma Swan in the upcoming season, but she will only appear in one episode.

One way the show will explain the absence of these characters is through a new curse, and judging by the way grown-up Henry (Andrew J. West) does not recognise his daughter, the new curse may have led to amnesia for everyone except Lucy (Alison Fernandez). Some veteran characters like Mr Gold (Robert Carlyle) will be seen in a new city assuming new identities.

In many ways, “Once Upon A Time” season 7 is similar to the first season. Just as young Henry (Jared Gilmore) fought hard to convince his mother about the nature of things in Storybrooke, Lucy will have to make her father believe in her and help save their family and friends.
