The last time fans saw the Huntsman (Jamie Dornan) on "Once Upon a Time," Regina the Evil Queen (Lana Parrilla) had crushed his heart and seemingly killed him.


But apparently, the Huntsman is not so dead and he'll be returning to the hit ABC series in March, reports Entertainment Weekly.

Kitsis said the episode will include "an exciting reveal" about the Huntsman and Horowitz added that "It's always important for us to not repeat ourselves." Whatever that means.


Horowitz also said fans can expect Emma to be more royal by the end of Season 2. "(Emma's) fairy-tale heritage ... is going to play a larger role," he said.


"Once Upon a Time" returns Sunday, March 3, at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
