The Belle of the ball is back — if only for one more spin.
Emilie de Ravin will reprise her role as Beast’s beauty in the fourth episode of Once Upon a Time Season 7, EW.com reports, “to provide an update on Belle.”
It was announced in May that six key cast members would not be returning for Season 7, including de Ravin, Rebecca Mader, Ginnifer Goodwin, Josh Dallas, Jared Gilmore and Jennifer Morrison (who also will be back for one episode).
Once Upon a Time Season 7 will premiere Oct. 6, now airing Fridays at 8/7c.
