As she bids farewell to the French and Scottish courts of the CW's Reign, Adelaide Kane is trading her crown for a possible chance at happily ever after. Though if you ask us, that final scene with Francis looked pretty happy!
Kane is slated to join the cast of Once Upon a Time along with four other actors. The ABC show is moving into its seventh season and plans to reboot the entire franchise while keeping a few familiar faces. As we previously reported, several cast members are leaving Storybrooke. including leading lady Jennifer Morrison, Wicked Witch Rebecca Mader, Beauty Emile De Ravin, and others.
According to TV Line, Kane joins the fairy tale cast with almost half a dozen other actors, including Gabrielle Anwar (Burn Notice), Dania Ramirez (Devious Maids), Mekia Cox (Chicago Med), and Rose Reynolds (Poldark).
The actress' roles were going to be announced at ComiCon next week, but reports say the news will be released at a later date instead. But ABC has not left us high and dry! We have some clues to keep us guessing until the big reveal:
- Both Anwar and Ramirez will be "full-fledged series regulars."
- Kane, Cox, and Reynolds will have recurring roles
SPOILERS AHEAD! Do not read on if you have not finished last season!
The end of last season saw a little girl traveling from what we assume to be the Enchanted Forrest (or similarly enchanted area) into the hustle and bustle of a modern city. She rides a bus, clutching a storybook, and ends up knocking on an apartment door. An older and jaded-looking Henry Mills (played by Walking Dead's Andrew West) opens the door to hear that the young girl is his long-lost daughter, and that magic is in danger.
Didn't we already hear this story? Isn't this how Once Upon a Time started all those years ago?
According to TV Line, "The official logline for the “reset” warns that “the residents of the Enchanted Forest face their greatest challenge yet” as Parrilla’s Evil Queen, O’Donoghue’s Captain Hook and Carlyle’s Rumplestiltskin join forces with Henry and Lucy “on an epic quest to once again bring hope to their world and ours."
What do they mean "once again bring hope"? How did they lose hope? How will Adelaide Kane fit into all of this?
Once Upon a Time will return this Fall on Fridays at 8/7c.
