Wicked always wins!

"Once Upon a Time" Season 7 is starting soon, with a lot of new characters in a new setting. Last we heard, from Rebecca Mader (Zelena) herself, she was not going to be involved in Season 6. But there must've been a new spell cast over at ABC, because TVLine revealed that she will be part of the 2017-2018 season after all.

And Mader won't just in one episode like Jennifer Morrison (Emma Swan). Instead, TVLine reports that the former series regular will return "for multiple Season 7 episodes." They said it's not clear if she'll again be playing Regina's sister Zelena/The Wicked Witch, since there are so many character twists in the new season. There's also a new Wicked Witch. So we'll have to stay tuned.

Mader issued a statement to TVLine:

"I am beyond thrilled to be returning to make magic with my beloved 'Once Upon a Time' family. I'm excited for this next chapter."

Here's the heartfelt post she shared in May when she thought she would not be back:

"Once Upon a Time" Season 7 starts Friday, Oct. 6 on ABC.
