Rebecca Mader announced via social media that she will not be returning as Zelena for season 7 of Once Upon a Time.
ABC made it official that the fairy tale drama will be returning this fall in a new revamped version of the show. Over the past few weeks, news has been breaking of character exits. Ginnifer Goodwin and Josh Dallas announced they were not in contract renewals for their roles. Jennifer Morrison announced that she had decided to leave at the end of season 6.
The latest wave comes form somewhere wicked. Rebecca Mader took to social media late last night to break the news that she was not returning, due to “creative decisions”. Also known as, the powers that be not realizing a good thing until it’s gone. See full memo from Bex below.
Rebecca brought a certain spice to the Wicked Witch. Watching her overcome her jealous ways to have a family has been such a treat. Regina and Zelena’s relationship has gone through the pits of hell, literally, and came out strong. Shame that there won’t be any more of these moments.
Sunday’s episode will give more of an insight into this creative decision. Bex, good luck with your future endeavors. Wherever you go, you’re going to rock it. You will be missed.
