AceShowbiz - More familiar faces are back to Storybrooke to help bid farewell to "Once Upon a Time". Jennifer Morrison, Josh Dallas, Ginnifer Goodwin and Emilie de Ravin are all set to reprise their roles as Emma Swan, Prince Charming, Snow White and Belle respectively.
"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," executive producers Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis confirm the foursome's return. "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."
The four actors join previously announced returning stars for the series finale, including Jared Gilmore (Henry Mills), Bev Elliott (Granny), Lee Arenberg (Grumpy), Tony Amendola (Geppetto), Keegan Connor Tracy (Blue Fairy), JoAnna Garcia Swisher (Ariel), Robbie Kay (Peter Pan), Sean Maguire (Robin Hood) and Victoria Smurfit (Cruella de Vil).
Morrison, Dallas and Goodwin appeared on the show since the pilot, while de Ravin was added to the cast halfway through season 1 before being promoted to a series regular in season 2. They exited the series at the end of season 6 ahead of the rebooted seventh season, but Morrison and de Ravin appeared in one episode earlier this season.
Lana Parrilla (Evil Queen/Regina Mills/Roni), Colin O'Donoghue (Captain Hook/Killian Jones/Rogers) and Robert Carlyle (Rumplestiltskin/Mr. Gold/Weaver) are the only original stars who stay as series regulars for the seventh season. Meanwhile, Rebecca Mader, who has appeared as Zelena/Wicked Witch since the third season, will also appear in the season ender as her guest arc continues into the final episodes.
"Once Upon a Time" airs Fridays at 8 P.M. ET on ABC. The series finale is set to span over two weeks, May 11 and May 18, with the newly announced returning stars appearing in the latter hour aptly tittled "Leaving Storybrooke".
