Once Upon a Time Season 3 doesn’t start production until July 12, but that doesn’t mean showrunners Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis aren’t already laying out the narrative framework for what will hopefully be another epic season. Which character will be getting a lot of play in Season 3?

Plenty of Regina stuff being planned,” Adam tweeted yesterday. This may seem kind of obvious, given that Regina/The Evil Queen (Lana Parilla) has always been a focal point of the show, but there are so many characters and storylines floating around these days, we’ll gladly take any affirmation we can get. Plus, we’re still reeling from the excitement that she didn’t die in the Season 2 finale. (We’ll admit it. We thought she was a goner for a few minutes there.)

If anyone needs a refresher (it’s been days upon days), Regina finished Season 2 on board the Jolly Roger, bound for Neverland to rescue Henry. Her crewmates: Charming, Snow, Emma, Rumple, and Hook. Quite the crew, if you ask us. If you ask Adam, he says, “Just because you want the same thing, doesn’t mean you agree on the methods. And that’s going to be some of the drama there. Despite the fact that they all want to save Henry, they have a long and difficult history with each other that they need to deal with.”

We wonder if Regina will be making any further steps on Redemption Road following her self-sacrificial move in the Season 2 finale. We think it earned her some good will with the Charmings, but who knows how far that will go. After all, she did put the entire town in danger in the first place.

Are you glad to hear Regina will be getting plenty of screen time in Season 3? Let us know in the comments below!
