Latest “Once Upon a Time” news revealed that Archie Hopper will return to the upcoming season after his disappearance from the two previous seasons.
ABC’s “Once Upon a Time” will welcome again Raphael Sbarge to their line of characters as he is set to return for the roles of Jiminy Cricket’s alter ego Dr. Archie Hopper.
According to TV Line, “Once Upon a Time” series co-creator Adam Horowitz has already confirmed the latest news saying that Dr. Archie Hopper, “our favorite cricket-shrink is going to find himself with a new patient.”
Dr. Archie Hopper last appeared in the “Once Upon a Time” season 4 with the episode entitled Rocky Road while the storyline of Frozen was being done.
His missing in action from the hit drama show has paved the way for Raphael Sbarge to also appear in TNT’s “Murder in the First,” “Hawaii Five-O, iZombie,” “NCIS: Los Angeles” and “Better Call Saul.”
Another arrival will be Sinbad the Sailor and Scheherezade.
Sinbad is said to be a character with an inner kindness but had his faith and leadership lost.
Scheherezade, on the other hand, is a person who is not backing out in a fight and can surpass the challenges that come her way.
“Whether the two of them know each other or are working for Mr. Hyde isn’t stated, but the characters are not traditionally villains,” the report noted.
As with some spoilers for the coming season, Lara Parrilla, who plays as Evil Queen, told Hollywood Life, that the characters will have be experiencing a different kind of adventure.
“The other heroes — Hook, the Charmings and Zelena — are pulled into a portal,” she said. “They get pulled into this portal and enter this new world that we haven’t seen.”
“Once Upon a Time” season 6 will premiere on September 25.
