Outlaw Queen lovers, get ready! Sean Maguire will be returning to ‘Once Upon A Time’ to reprise his role as Robin Hood, and the actor admits in a new interview that the appearance will give fans ‘closer’ on Robin and Regina’s relationship!
“I can’t tell you much because I don’t know a great deal just yet,” Sean, 40, told Nerdist. “I just know how Robin is going to make an appearance and where they have suggested where this little story arc is going to go. It was a very interesting idea and I thought it was very appealing. I think it’s going to give the audience a bit more closure on this character and the relationship he had with Regina.”
Sean’s character was killed off in season 5 by Hades while he was protecting Regina. Robin’s death devastated fans, especially since it seemed Regina would never get her happy ending. It wasn’t easy saying goodbye to his Once Upon A Time family, and Sean is excited to get another chance to play Robin again.
“It was so nice to get a call asking you to come back to anything, really,” he said. “It is not something you normally get to do on many shows, and generally I don’t try to go back but Once Upon a Time has been a very special little chapter in my career and the friendships I’ve made there, it’s not just a job. This one was a bit more a part of my life.”
Sean will appear in multiple season 6 episodes, but Robin Hood is NOT coming back from the dead. The show’s producers told Entertainment Weekly that Robin Hood’s storyline will be “unexpected and surprising.”
