'Once Upon a Time': Here Are the Stars Returning for the Series Finale (So Far)
In addition to original star Jared Gilmore, a few other fan favorites will be back as ABC closes its fairy tale drama.
As ABC prepared to close the book on Once Upon a Time, a number of familiar faces are making their way back to the fairy tale drama for its final episodes.
As previously announced, the fairy tale drama will end with its current seventh season. The series finale — fittingly called "Leaving Storybrooke" — will air May 18 on ABC. And the drama from showrunners Adam Horowitz and Eddy Kitsis will feature a number of familiar faces returning for the final two episodes.
Here's a round-up of everyone confirmed to return. THR will update this page as more information becomes available.
Jared Gilmore was previously confirmed to reprise his role as Henry for the series finale. "He's in a lot of ways the heart and soul of the show," co-creator Horowitz said. "He grew up literally on the show and it's really wonderful to see him back. I hope the audience enjoys. We feel like we have a fun adventure."
Bev Elliott will be back as Granny.
Tony Amendola will reprise his role as Geppetto/Marco.
Lee Arenberg is returning as Leroy/Grumpy/Dreamy.
JoAnna Garcia will reprise her role as Ariel.
Robbie Kay is returning as Peter Pan.
Sean Maguire will reprise his role as Robin Hood.
Victoria Smurfit will reprise her role as Cruella De Vil.
Keegan Tracy will reprise her role as Blue Fairy/Mother Superior.
Missing from the list, at least for now, are original stars Jennifer Morrison and Ginny Goodwin, who were among the fan favorites who exited the series after season six. "There's an open invitation for every actor who's been on the show to come back in the finale and so we'll see who's available," Kitsis said last month. "If the real question is will the final couple hours remind us of the first six years, then the answer is yes, but does that mean everyone's coming back? No, because they're real people with real lives and we can't force them to anymore. We try!"
For her part, Goodwin recently signed on to star in ABC comedy pilot Steps, which is produced by the same studio behind Once Upon a Time (ABC Studios). That at least makes a return more likely since she returned to work for the same company.
Once Upon a Time airs Fridays on ABC.
