ABC has officially decided to end their fantasy series Once Upon a Time after season 7.
“Seven years ago we set out to create a show about hope, where even in the darkest of times, a happy ending would always be possible. But we never imagined the happy ending that was actually in store for all of us — years and years of adventure, romance, magic and hope,” said creator Adam Horowitz in a statement.
“We’re so grateful to our brilliant collaborators — the cast, crew and writers — as well as our partners at the studio and network for making this journey possible. But most of all, we want to thank the fans. Their fierce loyalty and devotion was the real magic behind Once Upon a Time. We hope they join us for these last few hours as we journey to the Enchanted Forrest for one more adventure.”
The show experienced a metaphorical blood bath at the end of season 6 after many cast members left the show. Since then, Once Upon a Time’s future had looked bleak. And the move to Fridays didn’t help.
