Mild spoiler pertaining to the next season of Once Upon a Time below!

If you’ve been wondering what will become of Henry Daniel Mills in the upcoming seventh season of Once Upon a Time, then fasten your seatbelts, because an interesting spoiler has just arrived at your door.

Actor Andrew J. West will be taking over the role as the adult Henry, and executive producer Edward Kitsis tells Entertainment Weekly he will be working as … wait for it … an Uber driver. Well, sort of. In the fantasy Seattle town of Hyperion Heights, they’re known as Swyft drivers, FYI.

“He is an Uber driver,” Kitsis tells EW. “He wrote one book called Once Upon a Time that we’ll realize has all the stories from the first six seasons, but it did not do well, no one bought it, and he’s a guy that’s kind of down on his luck looking for his place in the world.”

Set many years after the last season's events, this time round things will be led by the grown-up Henry Mills, who is now father to a 10-year-old girl named Lucy. Kitsis explains: “Henry had the heart of the truest believer, and when we meet him he no longer believes, and it’s up to his daughter — who he doesn’t even realize is his daughter — to help him find his belief again.”

As well as Ubers, there’ll also be an abundance other familiar technologies, Kitsis says, including “juice bars and Instagram and robots.” Well, it’s certainly an upgrade on Storybrooke. We'll also be finding out more on the Queen-formerly-known-as-Regina (Lana Parilla) and the cop version of Captain Hook (Colin O'Donoghue) living in contemporary Seattle.
