    • Once Upon a Time Revival Set for 2020 Release at Disney+

      InfoboxPlainTitle

      On February 6, 2018, the Once Upon a Time fans were shocked to hear that the ABC hit show was going to end with its current season seven. Now, we can exclusively confirm that — after months of discussion — the show is going to get a season eight on a new home: Disney+.

      However, there's another twist on this tale: Original executive producers/showrunners Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis will not return to their duties. Instead, new showrunner Matheus Ribeiro will helm the fairytale drama series' revival.

      When asked about the revival, Ribeiro said that "It has been a great honor to work alongside Disney+ on bringing back such a remarkable show. This is the beginning of a new partnership that will expand the Once Upon a Time Universe and, there was no better way to start it than with a 16-episode season 8."

      Our sources confirm that the season will be split into two halves, both set to be released in 2020. There has been no news on returning cast members, but according to Ribeiro, we will hear more about it "within the next few days".

    • Once Upon a Time Revival: Lana Parrilla, Colin O'Donoghue to Return — Is Jennifer Morrison Coming Back?

      209JoinMeForADrink

      After last night's announcement that Once Upon a Time is getting a season 8 on Disney+, many fans wondered who was going to return to the show.

      Now, we can exclusively confirm that series leads Lana Parrilla and Colin O'Donoghue will reprise their roles as series regulars in the upcoming eighth season. Parrilla portrays Regina Mills, the Evil Queen. She is the only original cast member left, after the death of Robert Carlyle's Rumplestiltskin at season 7 finale. O'Donoghue, meanwhile, joined the show early in season 2 in a recurring role, and was promoted to regular midway through the season in the role of Captain Hook, until his character left the show after season 6 with his true love, original series lead Emma Swan (Jennifer Morrison). However, while Morrison left the show alongside her character, O'Donoghue didn't and, instead, portrayed his character's Wish Realm counterpart, a role that he is set to reprise on the revival.

      When asked about Morrison's possible return, new showrunner Matheus Ribeiro said that "There are no current plans for Emma to return, and the reason why she's absent will be revealed early in the season." However, as Ribeiro states, "an appearance down the road is not completely ruled out."

      Once Upon a Time returns in 2020.

    • Once Upon a Time Revival: Three More Vets Return

      703Promo23

      It looks like Lana Parrilla and Colin O'Donoghue are not the only Once Upon a Time season 7 regulars returning for season 8.

      After teasing their returns on Twitter earlier today, Andrew J. West and Dania Ramirez are officially joining the upcoming revival as regulars. West joined the show on the two-part season 6 finale, portraying the adult Henry Mills, previously portrayed by Jared S. Gilmore on the first six seasons, while Ramirez joined the show in the following episode, portraying Jacinda, a new iteration of Cinderella.

      However, they are not the only series regulars returning to the show. Mekia Cox, who portrayed Tiana on the seventh season is also returning. Cox's Tiana was originally a recurring character, and was promoted to series regular starting with the fifth episode.

      With West, Ramirez and Cox returning to the show, alongside previously announced Lana Parrilla and Colin O'Donoghue, this makes Alison Fernandez the only season 7 regular whose status is still unclear and, as of now, there's no clue on whether or not Fernandez is returning to the show.

    • Rebecca Mader Returning To Once Upon a Time Revival — First Casting Descriptions Revealed

      312WickedAlwaysWins

      Something wicked this way comes... And no, I'm not talking about the Disney movie. Rebecca Mader is officially returning to the Once Upon a Time revival — as a series regular, no less.

      The Lost alumna fist joined the show in a recurring role on the second half of season 3 in the role of Zelena, the Wicked Witch of West. She later returned to the show on the second half of season 4, and was promoted to series regular for season 5. Mader did not return as a series regular for the show's rebooted seventh and final season, but she recurred on seven episodes, including the finale.

      But she's not the only character who's joining the revival. We can exclusively confirm that the show is casting two new characters, one in a recurring role, while the other one is a full-fledged series regular.

      First up, the fantasy drama is casting a new series regular, named Amber, described as a brave yet kind woman in her mid-20s, who is determined to fight for her family, however, in order to do that, she must face demons from her past first.

      The other role being cast is Sara, a vengeful woman in her late-30s to early-40s who once had everything she could ask for, until she lost everything she loved the most.

      Once Upon a Time stars Lana Parrilla, Colin O'Donoghue, Andrew J. West, Dania Ramirez, Mekia Cox and Rebecca Mader, and returns in 2020.

    • Once Upon a Time Promotes Four To Regulars; Casts Adult [SPOILER]

      722SeeingRogers

      Once Upon a Time's upcoming season 8 has promoted four fan-favorites to series regular...

      Season seven additions Rose Reynolds and Tiera Skovbye are returning to Once Upon a Time as power couple Alice and Robin Hood. Reynolds joined the show on the season 7 premiere, while Skovbye made her first appearance nine episodes later. They both played important roles on the latter half of the season.

      Another season 7 return is Adelaide Kane's Drizella, who also joined the show on the season 7 premiere in a major recurring role. Drizella's last appearance was in the fifteenth episode of the season.

      But Drizella is not the only Tremaine set to appear in the upcoming revival...

      Last week, it was announced that the fantasy drama was casting a new series regular, whose casting call name was Amber, described as a brave yet kind woman in her mid-20s, who is determined to fight for her family, however, in order to do that, she must face demons from her past first. Now, we can reveal that Crystal Reed (Gotham, Swamp Thing) has been cast as Amber... aka the adult version of Anastasia, previously portrayed by Yael Yurman on season 7.

      Also returning to the show is Giles Matthey's Gideon. The son of Emilie de Ravin's Belle and Robert Carlyle's Rumplestiltskin first joined the show on season six in a recurring role, and made his last appearance during his mother's funeral on season 7's Up-inspired episode "Beauty".

      Once Upon a Time stars Lana Parrilla, Colin O'Donoghue, Andrew J. West, Dania Ramirez, Mekia Cox, Rose Reynolds, Tiera Skovbye, Adelaide Kane, Crystal Reed, Giles Matthey and Rebecca Mader, and returns in 2020.

    • Once Upon a Time Casts How to Get Away with Murder Star In a Recurring Role; Two Former Mains Set to Recur

      iJ5GQZ9.jpg

      Once Upon a Time's eighth season has cast How to Get Away with Murder star Amirah Vann for a season-long arc.

      Vann, who is mostly known for three-season role as Tegan Price on ABC's How to Get Away with Murder has joined the cast of Once Upon a Time's upcoming revival as the new iteration of the Queen of Hearts in a recurring role. Her character was described as "the devious queen of Wonderland who doesn't accept the creation of the United Realms."

      Once's revamped seventh season introduced new versions of characters we had seen before. One of these characters was Alice (promoted series regular Rose Reynolds). Even though Alice played an important role on season 7, we never got to see her story in New Wonderland. With Vann's casting as the Queen of Hearts, it is safe to say that Alice's backstory will be revealed.

      Also set to recur in the upcoming season 8 are original cast member Jared S. Gilmore and season 7 regular Alison Fernandez. Gilmore, who plays young Henry Mills and its Wish Realm counterpart, Sheriff Henry, was one of the six actors who departed the show at the end of season 6. He returned to season 7 in a recurring role. On the season 7 finale, Wish Henry was seen with the Storybrooke's deputy sheriff badge, and it is now confirmed that we will see Sheriff Henry's story as sheriff when the show returns.

      After joining the show at the end of season 6, Alison Fernandez, who portrayed Lucy, Henry and Cinderella's daughter, was upped to series regular for season 7, and was the only season 7 main whose status was not clear yet. Now we can confirm that, while Lucy is back, she is no longer a series regular.

      Once Upon a Time stars Lana Parrilla, Colin O'Donoghue, Andrew J. West, Dania Ramirez, Mekia Cox, Rose Reynolds, Tiera Skovbye, Adelaide Kane, Crystal Reed, Giles Matthey and Rebecca Mader, and returns in 2020.

    • Once Upon a Time: New Boss Spills the Tea on Upcoming Season 8; Gabrielle Anwar Among Five Returning Cast Members

      711HandItOver

      Once Upon a Time's season 8 is coming soon and new showrunner Matheus Ribeiro has joined us for a Q&A to tease what's next for what is expected to be the beginning of a new phase of the Once Upon a Time Universe:

      First of all, I'd like to thank you for this interview.
      Thank you for inviting me!

      Ok so, can you reveal the theme of this upcoming season?
      Ok... The theme is: "What's next?". We will see these characters wondering what's next for them after the end of the previous season and I believe it is an interesting theme, since they finally got their happy endings, and so we are going to question some stuff regarding their happy endings, but we will also question who those characters were.

      And what can you tease about Regina's arc? Will she be dealing with those questions as well?
      For once in her life, she's not. Regina is fully happy, which is something that never happened with her before. Regina's arc is learning how to be the Good Queen. She is a character who's always learning and evolving, and now she has to learn how to be a good ruler.

      At the end of season 7, the Realms of Storytelling were united into one big realm. How is this going to affect the story you are telling this year?
      Well, this is one of the major points, actually. We are going to deal with the fallout of this merge and there is one specific character — the Queen of Hearts — that is not satisfied with the merge, and that's how our story begins.

      When it was announced that the show was returning, you said that moving the show to Disney+ is "the beginning of a new partnership that will expand the Once Upon a Time Universe". Are there any spin-offs in the works? Maybe a Once Upon a Time in Wonderland revival?
      I can't really talk about this, but I'd love to work on spin-offs, and on a sequel season to Once Upon a Time in Wonderland.

      What can you tell us about Gideon's return?
      Well, not much actually. I'm really excited for his story. He is getting a true love and he is part of a really famous story that was never on the show.

      Before we end this, is there any scoop you would like to give us?
      Ok... Maybe some returning characters?

      Yes, please
      Ok so, I can exclusively tell you that we will see more of Lady Tremaine, Gothel, Dr. Facilier and Cinderella's mother Cecelia, as Gabrielle Anwar, Emma Booth, Daniel Francis and Cindy Luna are returning in recurring roles, while Yael Yurman is returning as young Anastasia for the season premiere, who is titled "The United Realms".

      Any release dates planned?
      We're aiming for a February 2020 release.

      Once again, thank you for answering those questions. I'm looking forward to see what's next for all those characters
      Thank you! Always a pleasure

      Once Upon a Time stars Lana Parrilla, Colin O'Donoghue, Andrew J. West, Dania Ramirez, Mekia Cox, Rose Reynolds, Tiera Skovbye, Adelaide Kane, Crystal Reed, Giles Matthey and Rebecca Mader, and returns in 2020.

      703Promo23

      As Once Upon a Time's revival nears its release, many questions have been raised, but none of them had answers — until now:

      Nick Branson wrote:
      What can you say about Gideon and his new love interest?

      "Gideon's love interest has already been cast! You will hear about the casting in a few weeks." says new showrunner Matheus Ribeiro, but don't expect Gideon's love story to take an easy path, "As usual, in our show, things are never that simple, so Gideon's love story will be as epic as they come, and yet, it will be hugely romantic. It is a story about helping each other grow, and I'm really excited to reveal this story to all of you!"

      Truest Believer wrote:
      What can you tease about the Queen of Hearts?

      "The Queen of Hearts [portrayed by recurring guest star Amirah Vann (How to Get Away with Murder,Underground)] is the antagonist of the first three episodes, who serve as a bridge to the rest of the season. However it is not the end of the Queen of Hearts. We have lots of plans for her, and we don't intend to let go of her anytime soon".
      Bonus scoop: Once Upon a Time has cast three new Wonderland-related recurring guest stars, and an announcement is coming soon.

      X-Men Are Cool wrote:

      What is the time jump after Season Seven?

      "In short, season 8 takes place one year after the creation of the United Realms, but you should expect a proper explanation of the timeline on the season premiere."

      Winged Pig wrote:

      Anything on Anastasia?

      "How about her centric episode? Anastasia's backstory will be revealed really soon... As in, as soon as the show returns." Ribeiro confirms. "During the upcoming season premiere, titled "The United Realms", we'll not only get to know Anastasia's adult self [portrayed by new series regular Crystal Reed (Gotham, Swamp Thing)], but also find out how Anastasia fits into a fairytale that has been teased in the show for a long time." Ribeiro also adds that the episode will "explore new layers of Anastasia's personality and relationships."

      ONCEFanandHappyHippo wrote:

      Any scoop on Zelena's arc this season?

      "The last time we saw Kelly, she was in a pretty different position than the one she is when our story starts", Ribeiro reveals, adding that "her season 7 arc was getting her happily ever after, however, when the story picks up [HUGE SPOILERS AHEAD] Kelly and Chad are no longer together. Something happened and now Kelly doesn't believe she deserves to live happily ever after, and that's what we're exploring this year. She needed someone to believe in her in order to get redeemed.  Now she needs to believe in herself."
      Bonus scoop: Ribeiro also confirms that, amid last year's sexual misconduct allegations, Kip Pardue is not reprising his role on the revival.

      Once Upon a Time stars Lana Parrilla, Colin O'Donoghue, Andrew J. West, Dania Ramirez, Mekia Cox, Rose Reynolds, Tiera Skovbye, Adelaide Kane, Crystal Reed, Giles Matthey and Rebecca Mader, and returns in 2020.

      • I'm considering using the format that ONCEFanandHappyHippo uses on his season. I had originally intended to use it on my OG season 8, but I never did.
      • Another thing I'd like to share is that I'm halfway through the script writing. I'm currently on page 34.

    • Here it is! Episode 4. I'm overall satisfied with the episode. It sets up many storylines for the rest of the season and officially kicks off the main arc of the season. I really hope you like it.

      This section is a detailed recap of this episode. There are major spoilers. Click to expand.

      The morning after the battle against the Queen of Hearts, Regina is in her room at the Royal Castle, brushing her hair. Someone knocks at the door, and she opens it. In the floor, lies a dead body. Regina is scared, and tries to wake the person. Then, she finds a note in the body, saying “MISSED ME, MY QUEEN?”.

      In Henry and Jacinda’s apartment, they are getting ready to go to the Elphame Academy for the election of the new fairy queen. Henry gets a phone call. It is Regina. She tells him what happened, and he says that he’ll talk to Sheriff Henry about it.

      In flashbacks, in the New Enchanted Forest, Ella is having dinner with Drizella, Marcus and Lady Tremaine. Someone knocks at the door, and Marcus opens it. It’s the King’s guards. They arrest Marcus for treason. Cinderella and Drizella are super scared and crying, worried about their father.

      Rogers is in his apartment with Kelly, Margot and Tilly. The newlyweds are leaving for honeymoon. They are going to Peru. Rogers is leaving too. He’s going to meet Sabine at Granny’s. They’ll have breakfast together. In Granny’s, Rogers and Sabine are having breakfast. Sheriff Henry calls Rogers. He explains what happened and tells Rogers to meet him at the Royal Castle.

      In the Elphame Academy, we see the outcome of Anastasia’s spell from the previous episode: She summoned her mother’s spirit. Victoria asks what she’s doing there, and how. Anastasia says that she was trying to find a way to bring Victoria’s spirit back to the Land of the Living so they could be together for a little bit longer. Victoria says that Anastasia made a huge mistake. She can't be out of the Land of the Dead for long. Anastasia tries to undo the spell but, to her surprise, it doesn’t work. Victoria’s spirit is trapped in the Land of the Living.

      Ivy wakes up in the Tremaine Manor. Her phone rings. It’s Anastasia. “I need you, Drizzy. I did something… Something bad.”

      In the Royal Castle, Regina, Henry, Kelly, Jacinda, Sheriff Henry, Rogers and Sabine are discussing what to do. They agree that it is best, for Regina’s protection, if she goes to the Elphame Academy with Kelly, Jacinda and Henry, as originally planned, while Rogers, Sabine and Sheriff Henry are going to stay and investigate what happened

      In flashbacks, in the New Enchanted Forest’s Castle, Lady Tremaine tells the King that Marcus is a traitor, who has been working as a spy for King James. The King thanks her for her information, and she leaves. In the Tremaine Manor, Lady Tremaine tells Cinderella and Drizella that she heard that Marcus was a traitor and that he’ll be executed in the morning by the Prince. Cinderella runs to her room, crying, and is surprised to see a fairy, who introduces herself as her Fairy Godmother.

      Regina, Henry, Kelly and Jacinda arrive at the Elphame Academy. They are all amazed with the school. Gideon and Tiger Lily welcome them. Gideon says that he’ll take them to the place where the voting will take place, because the Headmaster wants to meet them. On the way there, Henry notices Leroy, and goes talk to him. Leroy says that he’s there to deliver what the dwarfs collected in the mines. As Leroy and Henry catch up, Astrid arrives, to take what Leroy brought, and Henry notices that both Astrid and Leroy are ashamed.

      Ivy arrives at the Elphame Academy, and is shocked to see her mother’s spirit there. She asks what exactly is going on, and Anastasia explains. Ivy says that they need to find a way to send her mother back. Anastasia replies by saying that she knows who might help. Ivy, then, has weird visions, and almost falls on the ground. Ana asks if she’s ok, and she says that she just got dizzy.

      Gideon takes the heroes to the voting place, where the Headmaster meets them. Jacinda is shocked to recognize the Headmaster as the Fairy Godmother who once helped her in the past.

      In flashbacks, the Fairy Godmother explains to Cinderella that she is there to help her be happy. Cinderella asks for help on saving her father. The Fairy Godmother, then, says that she can’t do that. Marcus’ fate is already written. Cinderella tells her to go away, and says that she’ll do it by herself.

      In present day, the Fairy Godmother explains to Jacinda that she survived Lady Tremaine’s attack all those years ago, but she couldn’t interfere anymore on Cinderella’s life, because she was already on the path that she was meant to be. The Fairy Godmother, then, announces to all the fairies that the voting process is about to begin.

      After Astrid leaves to vote, Henry asks Leroy what happened between him and Astrid. He explains that she decided to be a fairy, and so, couldn’t be with him, and that they never talked to each other again. Henry encourages him to not give up on her, because he knows true love when he sees it, and these two are meant to be. Leroy says that he’ll think about it.

      Rogers, Sabine and Sheriff Henry use a location spell to discover who wrote the letter. They follow it, and get to a cottage in the Enchanted Forest. When they enter it, the mysterious attacker hears them and escapes. They find a bunch of drawings of Regina. Sabine, then, finds a letter, that was being written by the attacker. She reads it and says that they should take it to Regina.

      Regina, Jacinda, Kelly and Gideon watch as the fairies vote to decide who will be the next fairy queen. Regina notices Tinker Bell among the fairies voting. Anastasia arrives, to ask for Gideon’s help. Jacinda notices that she’s distressed by something and decides to follow them. When she arrives in Anastasia’s room, she’s shocked to see Victoria’s spirit.

      In flashbacks, on the day of Marcus’ public execution, Cinderella hides among the crowd, in an attempt to save her father. When the Prince is about to stab Marcus, she attacks the Prince, but Marcus tells her to run. The guards surround her, but she’s able to attack one of them and escape -- not before seeing the Prince stabbing her father to death.

      Regina is standing, watching as many other fairies vote. Tiger Lily approaches her, and says that she should talk to Tinker Bell, since she was one of the first persons who believed in Regina, and she’ll be happy to see how much Regina changed.

      After the voting, Leroy approaches Astrid and tells her that he didn’t give up on them yet. She says that some couples are just not meant to be. He, then, explains that he thinks they are meant to be, but she needs to give him a chance first. She promises him that she’ll think about it.

      Victoria’s spirit is clearly surprised to see Jacinda there, and Gideon explains that they can’t keep a soul away from the Underworld. They need to send her back as soon as possible. Luckily, he knows a spell that can send her back. He leaves to go get the ingredients, and asks the girls to prepare the room. Victoria is surprised to see the three sisters working together, and asks what happened. Anastasia tells her that they are one big family now. Gideon returns with ingredients and they perform the spell. He, then, leaves, so they can say goodbye to their mother

      Regina goes to Tinker Bell. Tinker Bell congratulates her on the whole Good Queen of the United Realms thing. Regina thanks her for believing in her in the first place. Tinker Bell says that, for a long time, she was skeptical that Regina could actually redeem herself, but she’s really happy to see that Regina did change. The Fairy Godmother appears and asks for everyone’s attention. She says that, after counting all the votes, the new queen of the fairies is… herself. She promises them to continue the work that Blue was doing, and protecting the realms, as a good fairy queen must do.

      Victoria says goodbye to Anastasia, Ivy and Jacinda. She apologizes to Jacinda for all her mistakes. Now, she sees how she ruined Jacinda's life, and she's happy that Jacinda is happy again. She's also proud of the three of them, and how they've grown closer. Victoria closes her eyes, and goes to the Land of the Dead. When she opens it, though, she is not in the Underworld, but in a much better place. She looks back and sees Marcus, who kisses her. She asks where they are and he says that they are in the Mount Olympus. She asks how she got there. She killed Marcus. He says that the girls needed to forgive her, and now that they did, she was ready to move on, and that he is not angry at her for getting he killed. He is happy that she redeemed herself. She kisses him again, and says that she is sorry, and that she will never forgive herself. He says that, lucky for her, he's there to show her how.

      In flashbacks, one week after the funeral, Lady Tremaine tells Cinderella that now, she must sleep in the attic, since Drizella wants all bedroom for herself. Cinderella, still sad, simply nods. She turns back and starts going upstairs, but Tremaine tells her to sweep the floor after she takes her stuff to the attic. In the attic, Cinderella cries, mourning her father, and the Fairy Godmother appears, promising that she’s there for her -- always.

      Gideon promises to Anastasia that her secret is safe. He understands why she did what she did, because he was once like her. She thanks him for his support.

      In their place, Jacinda tells Henry about what happened with Victoria, and that she’s happy that she could finally forgive her. Henry is happy for her. She says that, even though she was a monster for a long time, Victoria was her mother for most of her life, and that while she’s happy to get Cecelia back, she’s also happy to forgive Victoria, and ready to move on to the next chapter of her life, where the Tremaines are not her enemies, but her family.

      Rogers, Sabine and Sheriff Henry show Regina the note they found. It says “LET ME GRANT YOU A WISH”. Regina says that she knows who’s doing it: Sidney Glass.

      Back in the Tremaine Manor, Ivy experiences the same visions again, and a more clear one now: the Coven's lair. She rides a horse to the Coven's lair, and when she gets there, she finds Gothel’s journal. She reads it. There are pages about all the Coven members; Gothel, Seraphina, Madame Leota, the Blind Witch, the Hedge Witch, Drizella, and finally, the page about the last member of the Coven was ripped. Suddenly, she hears a noise, and turns back to see "I'M COMING FOR YOU, TRAITOR" written in the wall.

    • Once Upon a Time Spinoff Anthology Series In Development At Disney+ — Plus, Three Actors To Recur on Season 8

      101Clock2

      It seems like the Onceverse's stories are far from over.

      Once Upon a Time boss Matheus Ribeiro is developing a new spin-off anthology series.

      The currently untitled series, if ordered, will air on Disney+, and will "revisit old characters and locations, as well as new ones", says Ribeiro.

      "I'm really excited to show you another corner of the Once Upon a Time Universe, and I think you'll enjoy it too." Ribeiro adds.

      Even though the potential series is untitled, our sources confirm that the production title of the series is Once: Chronicles.

      Meanwhile, Once Upon a Time is welcoming three new, major recurring cast members to its eighth season. Alexandra Daddario (American Horror Story: Hotel, Why Women Kill), Oliver Jackson-Cohen (Emerald City, The Haunting of Hill House) and Phoebe Tonkin (The Originals, Westworld) are set to recur on multiple episodes on the show's eighth season.

      Daddario, who is set for a five episode-arc, with an option to return in a potential season 9, will portray the last member of the Coven of the Eight, as confirmed by the season 8 trailer. Daddario is set to debut in the midseason finale, titled "No One Mourns the Wicked".

      Jackson-Cohen and Tonkin will portray well-known characters Tarzan and Jane, from Tarzan of the Apes and Disney's Tarzan.

      Once Upon a Time stars Lana Parrilla, Colin O'Donoghue, Andrew J. West, Dania Ramirez, Mekia Cox, Rose Reynolds, Tiera Skovbye, Adelaide Kane, Crystal Reed, Giles Matthey and Rebecca Mader, and is currently streaming the first four episodes of its eighth season on Disney+.

    • Hi y'all.

      First of all, I'd like to say I'm sorry for delaying another episode, but I really need to do it.

      The reason why I'm delaying it is because I really want to enjoy the last episodes of my favorite reality (it ends on April 23) and I need to catch up on all my shows.

      That said, there will be a mini-hiatus, and my season will return on April 26, I promise lol.

      But I really want to keep releasing content, so I'll open a spoiler room, and will answer questions until the hiatus is over.

      Thanks for understanding.

    • Hi everyone. I have some news. Unfortunately, I won't be able to release the episode as planned. I got some unfortunate news today that are going to take me away from the project for awhile. Me and my family, we have COVID-19 symptoms. So far, we're doing ok, and we'll get tested in two days.

      As expected, these are the kind of news that just disrupt all your plannings. While I'm pretty confident about the results -- even if we test positive, I feel confident -- I'm going to take a break until I get the results. If I test negative, I'll continue the season as I get the results, but if I test positive, I'll take a longer break until I completely heal.

      I'm so sorry to have to announce that with you, but thanks for understanding.
