“The doctor will be in.”
TVLine has since confirmed that Anders will in fact reprise his role as Dr. Whale (aka Victor Frankenstein) in an upcoming episode of Season 5, which premiered this past Sunday.
News of Anders’ encore comes on the heels of TVLine reporting that Meghan Ory will be back for multiple episodes as Red/Ruby and Once announcing that Jamie Chung will be back for an arc as Mulan.
Anders made his Once debut in the series’ third episode when Dr. Whale tended to David, as the amnesic Prince Charming emerged from his coma. He last appeared toward the close of Season 3, to deliver Snow White’s baby.
The Alias alum currently is a series regular on The CW’s iZombie, where he plays the formerly undead Blaine.
