Once Upon a Time…There Was a Place Called Storybrooke

Barbara Barnett’s Once Upon a Time coverage.

Come with me to Storybrooke, a New England town that is much more than it seems. It is here that Emma Swan (Jennifer Morrison, House, Star Trek), a young bail bonds collector reconnects with her 10-year son Henry, a baby she gave up years earlier. Once Upon a Time returns this fall on ABC, and the magic is BACK. Join me as we unveil the magic of the town and its cast of characters, familiar fairytale characters now living alive and well in Storybrooke. Follow the latest developments, weekly episode commentaries, reviews and interviews with the cast and creative team. Join our live chats and their occasional guest stars to discuss the show and story lines. What’s next for Emma, now that the curse is broken? How will Rumple get his revenge for what the Evil Queen has done to his beloved Belle? What does the presence of magic do the citizens of Storybrooke? Will they all live happily ever after? Not likely, but stay tuned.
