The story continues. Variety reports Once Upon a Time has been renewed by ABC for a sixth season.
Now in its fifth season, Once Upon a Time takes place in Storybrooke, Maine and gives a modern update to classic fairytale characters like Snow White (Ginnifer Goodwin), Prince Charming (Josh Dallas), and Captain Hook (Colin O’Donoghue). Jennifer Morrison, Lana Parrilla, and Jared S. Gilmore also star.
Though ratings have declined in the fifth season, the fantasy drama is still pulling in a decent average of almost 5 million viewers per episode.
Earlier today, series creator Adam Horowitz tweeted thanks to ABC and the fans for the renewal:
Thrilled to announce that #OnceUponATime has been picked up for season 6! Thank you ABC and thank you to the most extraordinary fans ever!

What do you think? Do you watch Once Upon a Time? Will you watch another season? What do you hope happens?
i love the show the ones with hook saying good bye to emma where the best just bring back robin more seasons to come i hope can watch over and over
I have watched this show from day one. Never missed an episode . I wish the writers wouldn’t have changed things up like they did so I no longer watch.
In addition to my last post, I have to give the cast a big thumbs up for their extraordinary performances and portrayals. Wardrobe and choreography are spectacular.
Keep in mind that ratings are not as accurate as they used to be. Many people DVR their favorite shows, just as I do. I thoroughly enjoy this show. One of the few I look forward to and I couldnt be happier that it was renewed. The wrtiters, producers and direction are genious.
I’ve worked in TV for almost 20 years and I THINK – please note I said THINK – the DVR viewers are in fact being tallied in ratings. A couple of years ago, we were told this for our local media and since then you can see various networks encouraging the use of DVR in their promos. So – the ratings are actually more accurate than they once were. Back then, we waited on the hand written books from viewers…now we get the Nielsens from satellite, fiber cable, etc.
Dear Miss Pena.
Isn’t it a bit exaggerated, to call an average of 4.413 MM viewers, “..a decent average of almost 5 million..”?
When the post was written, the season average was 4.998 million viewers.
thank you for the clarification.
Such a fun show! I can’t get enough. I’ve watched the whole series all the way through multiple times. Please keep it going!
I am so glad they are continuing…maybe more in OZ next year! Fun show.
My Aunt turned me on to this show so watched every season. Season 5, before the break was ok, but after the break it has gone done hill very fast. The last 2 episodes I tried to watch but just couldn’t keep my attention on them. I am disappointed with how bad it has become. I am the type of person once I start something I need to finish it but not in this case. Why torture myself? So sad the writers couldn’t keep their creative juice flowing…..
I so disagree! I think the “Underbrooke” episodes are some of the best of the season.
THIS IS THE BEST MOST CREATIVE SHOW ON TELEVISION! i praise the writers and Im so happy it doesn’t have to end! i would be lost without this show<3 thank you thank you thank you thank you!!!!!!!!!!
I Love OUAT and I am thrilled it was renewed for season six, I would like to see the characters from Aladdin.
Not so sure why ABC didn’t mention about a proper “inal season” for OUAT.
Keep ’em coming!!
