"Once Upon a Time" Season 5 will focus on the struggles faced by major characters, including Prince Charming aka David Nolan (Josh Dallas) and Snow White aka Mary Margaret Blanchard (Ginnifer Goodwin), in bringing back Emma Swan (Jennifer Morrison) from darkness.
Although the saviour of Storybrooke will possess some evil powers, she will not completely turn out to be a villain in the upcoming sequel.
Executive producer Edward Kitsis has already revealed that Morrison's character will have a split personality in the fifth season of "Once Upon a Time" and she will be struggling with issues of being a saviour and the new dark one.
As the new Dark One struggles with her dual personality, his son Henry Daniel Mills (Jared S Gilmore) is likely to find a love interest. "He's an awkward, young child. Like all 13-year-old boys, they have to navigate their way through the minefield of first dating," teased Kitsis.
Meanwhile, showrunner Adam Horowitz revealed that Emma's parents Prince Charming and Snow White will cross the lines to save their daughter from darkness, according to Entertainment Weekly.
However, it remains to be seen if King Arthur (Liam Garrigan) will lend a helping hand to the couple in finding Merlin aka Sorcerer (Elliot Knight). Actor Josh Dallas previously teased that Camelot will play an important role in Charmings' life.
"Camelot is going to be a huge part of the Charmings' life, particularly Charming. You're going to see him bro out with King Arthur in a big way. You're also going to see Charming at his most heroic, which is going to be fun," TV Guide quoted him.
In a similar vein, Kitsis said, "I would say it's a bromance that's just as special as Arthur and Guinevere Charming."
To know more about the future of Emma Swan and her family in "Once Upon a Time" season 5, fans of ABC fairytale series can mark their calendar to watch the premiere episode of season 5 on Sunday, 27 September, at 8pm.
