Ding Dong the Witch Isn’t Dead! Rebecca Mader Returns to ‘Once Upon a Time’ as Zelena!
The Witch is back ladies and gentlemen. Rebecca Mader will be reprising her infamous role as Zelena the Wicked Witch during the Season 7 of ‘Once Upon a Time’ on ABC. Mader is returning to the role she debuted in season 3 and she had previously announced she was leaving at the end of season 6.
Details about her role in season 7 have not been released yet. It will be a different story for the incredible witch since Zelena sacrificed her magic in season 6 to take down the Black Fairy.
During an interview with EW, Mader was asked if she felt like there was more Zelena story to tell in season 7. “Yeah, definitely,” Mader said, noting she would just hope Zelena would get her powers back. “I would think season 7 would be me trying to get my powers back without trying to kill anyone or whatever, blah, blah. Come on. Hashtag redemption.”
Mader joins an already awesome cast of returning characters young Henry (Jared Gilmore), Emma (Jennifer Morrison). Belle and Gideon (Emilie de Ravin and Giles Matthey)
‘Once Upon a Time returns’ to ABC on Friday, Oct. 6 at 8 p.m. ET
