Jamie Dornan, Once Upon a Time, Returning StarsABC

Calling all Once Upon a Time fans! 

If you, like us, are still not over Sheriff "Skinnyjeans" Graham's (Jamie Dornan) untimely death on the ABC fairy-tale drama, you're probably craving some more of that Huntsman hottie. 

And ever since his old bosses, OUAT showrunners Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis, and his former costar Jennifer Morrison told us that they wanted Dornan back on the show, we've been dying to know...

Is Dornan going to return to OUAT and reprise his role? Does he even want to?!

"I love those guys, Adam and Eddy, they're like family to me," Dornan told a small group of reporters at the 2015 Winter TCA Press Tour. "I was actually filming something on the same lot as them just before Christmas. But I don't know, [Graham] is kind of dead!"

Of course, when we reminded Dornan that death hasn't stopped other characters from returning, either through magic or via flashbacks, he agreed that there is a potential for Graham to either be resurrected or show up in flashbacks.

"I know there are ways and means [to bring Graham back], but that's something I'm not privy to," Dornan said. "I know the hardcore fans want it, as well."

Morrison previously told us that she'd love to work with Dornan again on OUAT.

"We're still good friends, and obviously Jamie has quite the schedule," Morrison said at the OUAT season premiere back in the fall. "But we're hoping that someday there will be a moment where he's available to come back and reprise some flashbacks of Sheriff Graham."

We're still bummed that the showrunners' plans to bring Dornan back for a season three arc didn't pan out due to timing.

"Last year, when he did ‘Welcome to Storybrooke' for us, it was fantastic to have him come back," Kitsis said. "He's a friend of ours, he's a friend of the show and unfortunately, this year, he goes right from the movie to The Fall, so there was no–because they were shooting [Fifty Shades] in Vancouver, we were hoping to…"

"And it's funny…his part was always conceived as that seven-episode arc in the first season…with the hope we could bring him back here and there as we've done," Horowitz added. "But…it's gratifying that everyone seems to have responded so well to his talent."

Now it's your turn to weigh in, OUAT fans: do you want to see Dornan's Sheriff Graham/Huntsman return?
