The latest news about the Once Upon a Time season 7 cast could mean the exit of one of its lead characters. What’s in store for the fantasy series?
The TV series is on hiatus now and season 6 will not be back until March. Yet fans already wonder about its renewal for a seventh season.
Their fears seemed to worsen after the recent comments of ABC boss Channing Dungey. Indeed, her hints could mean many changes to the show in general. Yet can the show move forward minus one of its stars on the Once Upon a Time season 7 cast?
Emma’s Fate on Once Upon a Time Season 7 Cast
Jennifer Morrison has been with Once Upon a Time since the start. Her character Emma Swan is one of the key players in the story. Undeniably, the role has become special to her, TV Guide reports.
Alas, it would seem another obstacle could stand in the way of Morrison being part of the cast of Once Upon a Time season 7. Apparently, the actress’ contract with the series ends in April.
“My contract ends in April on Once Upon a Time, I don’t know what that means. They haven’t picked up the show officially yet — they might, they might not,” Morrison said during a podcast interview with The Drop-In.
“We are just waiting now to see if the network decides to continue with the show — and if they do continue with the show, if they’re going to rework it to be something else, or if they’re going to invite people to stay. We’re just in a holding pattern right now,” Morrison added.
Morrison Decision Hinges on ABC Decision
Early on, Morrison admitted her reservations at playing the character forever. Yet now she said her decision to carry on would depend on the direction ABC chooses to go with.
“… it’s more about a life decision, and I don’t even know how to make that life decision until I know what ABC even wants,” Morrison added. As of writing, no further statements about the show’s status came from the network.
To date, TVLine reports at a possible musical episode on the Once Upon a Time TV series during its current season. Back in 2011, OUAT lead star Morrison also teased about the likely musical outing installment. However, ABC has yet to comment on the story.
