With the residents of Storybrooke on the hunt for Merlin, and Once Upon a Time also introducing other Camelot players King Arthur and Guinevere, it should come as no surprise that Lancelot will return in season 5.
EW has learned exclusively that Sinqua Walls (Teen Wolf, Power) will once again suit up to recur as the former knight of the Round Table, though it’s unclear whether he’ll appear only in flashbacks or also in present day.
“Oh man, you can’t go to Camelot and not see Lancelot,” executive producer Edward Kitsis told EW when conducting our special Comic-Con edition of Hot Seat, which will be out the week of the big event in San Diego.
Lancelot was first introduced during the second season via flashback, where we learned he was a disgraced knight because of some woman—likely Guinevere. In the present, Cora (Barbara Hershey) claimed to have killed Lancelot and taken on his appearance in a bid to escape the Enchanted Forest with Snow White (Ginnifer Goodwin) and Emma (Jennifer Morrison). But we never saw his body, so there’s a slight chance he could still be alive.
Once Upon a Time returns Sunday, Sept. 27 at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
