“Once Upon A Time” season 7 is a new journey that starts years after the final battle in season 6. Flashbacks will be used to give fans a glimpse of what exactly happened in the past few years, and how those events are connected to the story now.

Viewers already have an idea about what some of the veteran characters on the show are like. Over the years, it has revealed different sides of the characters, their past regrets and more. However, there may be more skeletons hiding in their closets that may come tumbling out as the story continues.

Speaking with Entertainment Weekly, Executive Producer Adam Horowitz said that the advantage of having characters that live for hundreds of years is that they can pick different eras of their lives and focus on that part to tell the current story. The producers have used this formula before, and they will continue to use flashbacks as a tool to tell new stories.

Henry Mills (Andrew J. West) is the main hero of the TV series going forward. His daughter Lucy (Alison Fernandez) has brought him a new book, with a plea to help save their family. The next season will have a new adventure as the two characters take a journey to save their family from another curse.

Some of the familiar characters who will be returning include Hook (Colin O’Donoghue), Regina and the Evil Queen (Lana Parrilla), and Mr. Gold (Robert Carlyle). All these characters are suffering from the new curse, so they will be seen in a new avatar.

Filming of “Once Upon A Time” season 7 will begin in July. The cast and crew will be returning to Vancouver, but the set will not be for Storybrooke. The story has moved to a new fictitious town.
