The Once Upon a Time writers aren't being shy about introducing new characters on Season 2.

We've already met Sleeping Beauty (Sarah Bolger), Mulan (Jamie Chung), and the sadly soul-sucked (though hopefully not dearly departed) Prince Philip (Julian Morris), and Captain Hook has been tapped as a series regular for the second half of the season.

Another newbie we'll be meeting is Sir Lancelot, who's not exactly a fairy tale character, but whatev. Now, new photos from Season 2, Episode 3: “Lady of the Lake” not only give us a closer look at Lancelot in costume (as you can see in the photo above), but also give us a glimpse at who he'll be spending time with.

Yep: That's Mulan! As the ABC caption for the photo explains, "Emma and Mary Margaret, with the aid of Mulan, Aurora and brave knight Lancelot, attempt to find a portal that will bring them back to Storybrooke." It sounds like their not-so-merry band of wanderers will just get bigger as time goes on.

Are you excited for Lancelot, or is this one new character too many?

Catch the next new episode of Once Upon a Time on Sunday, October 7 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
