With her run as Pam de Beaufort having recently ended, Kristin Bauer van Straten is headed back to Once Upon a Time.
Entertainment Weekly has exclusively learnt that the True Blood star will return to her role as Maleficent in the second half of OUAT's fourth season.
Bauer is said to return as a recurring guest star for a big arc - could she be the big bad for the remaining season four episodes?
Maleficent was last seen in the season 1 finale when she was stuck in dragon form and locked away under the clock tower until she was slain by Emma but then was seen again at the end of season 2 in zombie form.
Once Upon a Time returns for Season 4 September 28 on ABC.
