As the trailer says, this season will see the folk of Storybrooke enter a whole new world – Camelot!.. (you really would have thought they’d save the ‘whole new world’ strapline for when they eventually introduce Aladdin at some point… but I digress…) Unlike with Monty Python, Camelot is not such a silly place in this iteration, with more swords, arrows, and of course, King Arthur (Liam Garrigan – 24: Live Another Day, Strike Back). Joining King Arthur is of course Merlin (Elliot Knight – Sinbad, By Any Means), Lancelot (Sinqua Walls – Teen Wolf, Power), and Guinevere (Joana Metrass – The Man from U.N.C.L.E.). Also new to the show is Merida (Amy Manson – Torchwood, Being Human) from Disney/Pixar’s Scottish Highland animation Brave.
This season should shake things up with Emma (SPOILER…) becoming the new Dark One at the end of last season. Will she manage to keep the darkness under control or become a villain herself?
The new season starts on 27th Sept in the US, and, although not confirmed, should (assuming it follows the same pattern as last season), be on Netflix UK on the 28th Sept.
