It may or may not be “Mulora,” but there will definitely be a same-sex love affair in Once Upon a Time‘s upcoming fifth season.
“We know that [the LGBT] community has been a big supporter of the show, and we would love to be able to tell a love story that reflects that,” executive producer Eddy Kitsis said Friday at a press screening of the Season 5 premiere.
Added EP Adam Horowitz: “We want the show to reflect the world as it is now. Whether that’s going to be with any particular character” — Mulan being the obvious choice given her previous feelings for Aurora, and her return to the action this fall — “we’re not going to say.”
Kitsis, meanwhile, confirmed that the ABC fantasy series will make good on that desire to explore a same-sex relationship. “It is something we’re going to do this year,” he revealed.
“It’s something we think is due and important to do on the show because it’s the world we live in,” Horowitz explained.
Once Upon a Time returns next Sunday, Sept. 27 at 8/7c on ABC.
Once fans, do you think Mulan will be the character at the center of the arc? Who else would you like to see explore an LGBT love story?
