The future of once upon a timeSeason 7 remains to be seen until ABC officially announces its renewal. As it has been said that the show will feature a reset, some deem that it will also reduce its growing cast. However, it is not yet sure who among the show’s characters are going to take their final bow. Thus, it has been said that its stars are now in negotiations to be in the next installment if ever it will push through.

Stars now in discussion

Sources told Digital Spy that the fairytale television series’ original characters, Jennifer Morrison (Emma Swan), Lana Parrilla (Regina Mills), Robert Carlyle (Mr. Gold), and Colin O’Donoghue (Captain Hook) from the second season, are now in talks with the network to extend their contracts.

In fact, Morrison believes that she will be still part of the next installment as she has a “fierce loyalty to the show.” The 37-year-old actress explained that she is very protective of her character as it brought too many good things in her life. Thus, she has no intention to leave her role that has been a big part of her.

However, there is no word if the agreements of other characters, like Ginnifer Goodwin (Snow White), Josh Dallas (Prince Charming), Jared Gilmore (Henry Mills), and Emilie de Ravin (Belle) will be extended. But not because they are not part of the negotiations, they won’t be in the next chapter. Anyhow, ABC has yet to comment on the issue.

The show’s reset

ABC has yet to renew “Once Upon a Time” Season 7, but the show’s creators Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis earlier assured that the current season won’t be the end.

To recall, the network’s Chief Channing Dungey talked about the future of the show at the Television Critics Association press tour in January.

She explained that the television series’ creators are eyeing the next season to be a “springboard in a new direction.” Dungey also explained that this doesn’t mean that they won’t be bringing the show’s original cast back.

“It’s just, how do you kind of hit the reset button in a way that gives you an opportunity to expand the stories that we’re telling?” she said. “Whenever there’s change, there’s always a transition.”
