“Does that mean more Sarah Bolger and I do hope Mulan returns.”
Potentially, like the article said
so here’s hoping this means the show will dive more into her [Maleficent] past, as well as Aurora’s history.
we’ll find out further from either Adam and Eddy or Sarah herself once they get to that point in filming the episodes.
'True Blood' star Kristin Bauer van Straten returning to 'Once Upon a Time' for major arc
Kristin Bauer van Straten has booked a return trip to Once Upon a Time.
EW has learned exclusively that the True Blood alum will reprise her dastardly role as villain Maleficent during the second half of Once’s upcoming season.
Could this mean that Maleficent will be season 4’s other big villain after the Frozen storyline? It’s unclear as of now, but Bauer will be back as a recurring guest star for a big arc, so here’s hoping this means the show will dive more into her past, as well as Aurora’s history.
The last we saw of Maleficent, she was locked away in a cave under the clock tower, stuck in dragon form until she was slain by Emma in the season 1 finale. She then came back in nightmarish zombie form at the end of season 2.

“About OUAT S4: I still hope that one day we will get a proper Aurora centric episode with Maleficent and everything. We have never see OUAt's version of Sleeping Beauty, though it's such a classic!”
That’s the dream! The writers have a habit of setting stories up and leaving them with loose ends. It happened with LOST so it’s not too surprising that if we don’t get any sort of episode or closure on it (Like seriously, how did they revive Phillip and where is the baby?)there’s no word on if they’ll be back in Storybrooke for season 4 or not, time can only tell.
