What’s This TV Show About?
Airing on the ABC television network, Once Upon a Time centers on Emma Swan (Jennifer Morrison). Although for the first 28 years of her life, Emma believed herself an orphan, she is in fact the daughter of Snow White (Ginnifer Goodwin) and Prince “Charming” aka David (Josh Dallas). To exact revenge on her step-daughter Snow, the Evil Queen Regina (Lana Parrilla) cast the Dark Curse. It swept up all the residents of the Enchanted Forest, stripped them of their identities, and deposited them in our world. But then, Henry Mills (Jared Gilmore) found Emma — his biological mother — and brought her to Storybrooke. As the destined Savior, she broke the curse. However, that allowed Mr. Gold aka Rumplestiltskin (Robert Carlyle) to bring magic to town. Because magic always comes with a price, Emma’s mission is not over. The series also stars Emilie de Ravin, Colin O’Donoghue, and Rebecca Mader.
Season Six Ratings
The sixth season of Once Upon a Time is averaging a 0.94 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 3.15 million viewers. Compared to season five, the show is down 32% and down by 28%, respectively. Learn how Once Upon a Time stacks up against the other ABC TV shows.
Despite declining ratings, it looked like Once Upon a Time would be renewed for a final seventh season. Now, star Jennifer Morrison has committed to appearing in only one more episode if the show is renewed. Can the show continue without one of its core characters (ala ABC’s plan for season nine of Castle)? I don’t think so and suspect that Once Upon a Time will end with season six.
5/11 update: ABC has renewed Once Upon a Time for a seventh season. Details here.
