Once Upon a Time is gearing up for its sixth season, and we know the Evil Queen is back and Aladdin and Jasmine are being introduced, but a logline for the new season has dropped a big clue about what else is coming: Emma (Jennifer Morrison) unearths a life-altering secret — what is it?! Read below:

As Once Upon a Time returns to ABC for its sixth season, so does its classic villain—the Evil Queen. Creators Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz invite you to join everyone’s favorite fairytale characters as they face-off against this supercharged enemy.  


When Regina split herself in an attempt to eliminate her evil half, she unwittingly released the Evil Queen. Now the Evil Queen is back and ready to leave a trail of destruction in her wake. Meanwhile, Regina is quickly learning that destroying her dark side won’t be that easy, especially when dealing with the consequences of having unleashed the Queen on Storybrooke. Emma learns a life-altering secret that could have serious consequences for her family and loved ones. While the heroes grapple with what Emma is confronting, Henry welcomes the new arrivals from the Land of Untold Stories by pledging to help them complete their tales. But when Snow White, Prince Charming, Regina, Captain Hook and Zelena become entwined in these untold tales, they find themselves haunted by their own unfinished pasts. Meanwhile, after handing Storybrooke over to Mr. Hyde, Mr. Gold continues his quest to wake Belle from her self-induced sleeping curse, in hopes of reuniting with both her and their unborn child.


This season our heroes will be met with many surprises, including Aladdin (Deniz Akdeniz), a former Savior who may be able to offer Emma just the help she needs, Jafar (Oded Fehr), Princess Jasmine (Karin David), the Count of Monte Cristo (Craig Horner) and Morpheus (Giles Matthey).

Once Upon a Time returns Sunday, Sept. 25 at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.

Everything you’ve ever read about fairy tales is true—the residents of Storybrooke are living proof.
