“Once Upon A Time” season 7 may be shifting base to a new city, but the premiere episode will begin in a familiar place. Executive producer and writer Adam Horowitz has confirmed that the show will begin in Storybrooke.

Close on the heels of revealing the title of the first episode, Horowitz teased another picture of the script. The picture (see below) reveals the first act, which begins at the main street of Storybrooke.

The producers appear to be teasing the audience. The TV series has gone for a reset, which will take viewers to a new city for new stories. However, the transition from Storybrooke to the new city may be slow.

According to a report by Entertainment Weekly, Horowitz has confirmed that even though fans will not get to see some familiar characters next season, it doesn’t mean that the show will not talk about them at all. The producers plan to reveal what has been happening with these characters.

Since some of the main ones like Emma (Jennifer Morrison) will not be returning, the writers may use anecdotes and dialogue of the regular characters to reveal the state of the missing ones. The main returning characters include Mr Gold (Robert Carlyle), Regina (Lana Parrilla) and Hook (Colin O’Donoghue).

A grown-up Henry Mills (Andrew J. West) will be the main hero going forward. The plot revolves around his daughter, who has a new book of stories, and the fight against a new villain and curse.

The title of “Once Upon A time” season 7 premiere episode is “Hyperion Heights.” Although the producers haven’t teased any details about the significance of the tile, it is possible that this is the city taking the place of Storybrooke going forward.
