Last season, Once Upon a Time saw a boost in the ratings thanks in part to the show’s Frozen storyline. How will the show do this time around? Will the ratings rise or fall? Cancelled or renewed for a sixth season? Stay tuned.
Once Upon a Time follows the continuing adventures of fairytale characters whose tales unfold between their storybook world and Storybrooke, a small town in Maine. The large cast includes Ginnifer Goodwin, Jennifer Morrison, Lana Parrilla, Josh Dallas, Emilie de Ravin, Colin O’Donoghue, Jared S. Gilmore, Sean Maguire, Rebecca Mader, and Robert Carlyle.
