With ABC bringing the curtain down on Once Upon a Time this May after seven seasons, the network has announced that it is bringing back former stars Josh Dallas (Prince Charming), Ginnifer Goodwin (Snow White), Jennifer Morrison (Emma Swan) and Emilie de Ravin (Belle French) for the series finale.
“Seven years after we set off on this magical journey, we prepare to say goodbye to the cast, crew and writers that made the ‘happily ever after’ that is Once Upon a Time possible,” reads a statement from creators Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz. “We couldn’t think of a more fitting way to say farewell than by reuniting so many of the characters that our fiercely loyal fans spent years with on their adventures. We hope everyone joins our Once family, old and new, for what we hope will be the sendoff of a lifetime befitting this stellar cast and its incomparable fans.”
Once Upon a Time’s cancellation was announced last month amid falling ratings for the seventh season, which marked a quasi-reboot for the show after much of its core cast left when their contracts expired at the end of season six.
The series finale of Once Upon a Time, titled ‘Leaving Storybrooke’, will air on May 18th, and also features Jared Gilmore (Henry Mills), Bev Elliott (Granny Lucas), Tony Amendola (Marco), Lee Arenberg (Leroy), Joanna Garcia (Ariel), Robbie Kay (Peter Pan), Sean Maguire (Robin Hood), Victoria Smurfit (Cruella De Vil), Keegan Tracy (Mother Superior) and Rebecca Mader (Zelena).
