A truly magical night is coming our way on Sunday, September 30.

Just before the premiere of Once Upon a Time Season 2, fans will be treated to a one-hour special, Once Upon a Time: Magic Is Coming, narrated by actor Giancarlo Esposito (Sydney/Magic Mirror).

According to ABC, the special “will explore the series in a way that will bring new viewers up to date — but which current viewers will also find illuminating — in anticipation of the exciting second-season premiere.”

“The special will take a look at Emma Swan’s journey into Storybrooke and her destiny to break the Evil Queen’s curse, which sent the fairytale characters into our world with no memory of who they once were. Backstories and secrets of Snow White, Prince Charming, Rumplestiltskin, Red Riding Hood and others will also be revealed. In addition, the special will give a glimpse into what’s upcoming for Season 2 — magic!”

This OUAT love comes on top of the Season 1 repeats ABC has been running on Sunday nights. Plus, news just came out that Season 1 is now streaming on Netflix Instant — and that’s in addition to the DVD set, which is also newly available. So magic is not only coming, it’s coming from all directions in every shape and form. And we love it!

Catch the special on ABC at 7 p.m. ET/PT on September 30.

Once Upon a Time Season 2 premieres on September 30, 2012 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
