Fans of the ABC TV fantasy series Once Upon a Time will be able to satisfy their cravings for the show long before the second season resumes this fall.

This week, production began for the surprise first-season hit TV show, which centres around a woman who lives in the town of Storybrooke, Maine (real-life Steveston, B.C.) and doesn’t recall her fairy-tale origins, and that of the characters around her. It’s her son—who she gave up for adoption and is reunited with at the start of the first season—who tries to jog her memory, and he finally met with success toward the end of the inaugural season.

But this week’s shooting wasn’t in Richmond, but did take place elsewhere in the Lower Mainland, a source told The Richmond Review.

Shooting in Steveston is set to resume mid-week next week, and that means the fishing village will undergo another transformation, with store fronts rebadged, the show’s many stars returning, and a Storybrooke sheriff’s vehicle and family VW Beetle rolling through town again.
