With the news that Once Upon a Time is coming to an end after seven seasons, many have been wondering which former actors will appear before the show concludes. 

At a press screening for the spring premiere, it was confirmed that former series regular Jared Gilmore would be returning in a guest starring role for one episode. 

What Do We Do? - Once Upon a Time Season 6 Episode 11

"We're very excited to have Jared back," co-creator Adam Horowitz told reporters.

"He's in a lot of ways the heart and soul of the show. He grew up literally on the show, and it's really wonderful to see him back. I hope the audience enjoys. We feel like we have a fun adventure."

"He is getting into college, and he's grown up, and it's a crazy thing," said co-creator Edward Kitsis.

"We're really excited to have him back. I think in the opening of the year when we saw him get on that motorcycle; it was like a different Jared. We're going to show an episode with him before that in Storybrooke with Regina."

"It's a college tour. Who doesn't want to go on a college tour with the Evil Queen? She plays beer pong like nobody."

Once Upon a Time Season 7 was a reboot of sorts for the ABC drama. 

Gilmore left the series along with Jennifer Morrison, Josh Dallas, and Ginnifer Goodwin after Once Upon a Time Season 6, and it paved the way for several new additions.
