Once Upon a Time Scoop: Eion Bailey to Return as 'Pinocchio' in Season 4

Westworld Eion Bailey

Once Upon a Time is knocking on wood — again.

Eion Bailey will reprise his role as August (aka Pinocchio) in multiple Season 4 episodes, starting with Episode 14, which is titled “Enter the Dragon,” TVLine has learned.

In Season 2’s “Selfless, Brave and True,” August died (from a magical Taser wound?) while trying to warn Emma about Peter Pan’s minion Tamara. Blue was able to save him, but only in the form of his seven-year-old self.

Since August is just a young lad now, it’s likely Bailey will appear only in flashbacks — perhaps some connected to the storybook’s sought-after author? After all, August is also is credited with adding pages to the tome (namely, the story of Pinocchio).

Once Upon a Time resumes Season 4 with Episode 13 on Sunday, March 1, at 8/7c.
