Once Upon a Time‘s upcoming rebooted seventh season finally has a premiere date.

The ABC fairy tale drama will return Friday, Oct. 6 at 8 p.m. ET, as revealed during a hologram activation at Comic-Con.

Following the exits of six main castmembers, the new season — which will initially be paired with Marvel’s Inhumans on Friday nights before Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. returns — will focus on an adult Henry Mills (Andrew J. West) and his daughter Lucy (Alison Fernandez), as well as Regina (Lana Parrilla), Hook (Colin O’Donoghue), and Rumple (Robert Carlyle). Plus, there will be five new members of the cast, one of whom is playing Henry’s wife/Lucy’s mom, and a new iteration of Cinderella.

Here’s the logline from ABC: “After six seasons, the residents of the enchanted forest face their greatest challenge yet as the Evil Queen, Captain Hook, and Rumplestiltskin join forces with a grown-up Henry Mills and his daughter Lucy on an epic quest to once again bring hope to their world and ours. Along the way, new fairy tale characters and old search for true love, find adventure, and once again take sides in the struggle of good against evil, as classic tales are once more twisted and reimagined.”

Stay tuned for more Once Upon a Time scoop when the cast and executive producers head to Comic-Con on Saturday.
