Once upon a time, a show graced ABC that allowed humans to be transported to a land of fairytales.
The fairytales we grew up knowing and loving have come to life, thanks to the Evil Queen's Dark Curse. The only way the curse can be broken is by the daughter of Snow White and Prince Charming.
The show became an instant success, and ratings have been steady since 2011.
Unfortunately, with the departure of the core cast members (Ginnifer Goodwin, Jennifer Morrison, and Matt Dallas), things haven't been the same.
Seven years after the show's premiere, Once Upon a Time is ending after 7 seasons.
Edward Kitsis said this about the show's ending:
"Listen, we love this show, we were happy to continue going on, but collectively they felt that, after seven years and 156 episodes, it was time. For us, we’re like, 'It’s a hell of a run.' We never thought we’d get to seven episodes, let alone seven years.
We felt grateful for the opportunity. Obviously, we felt sad that, after seven years of living in this universe, [it’s over]. It has been so creatively rewarding, but at the same time, we have got everything out of Once that we ever dreamt of and we really can’t complain, and we really can’t feel sad. We just feel really grateful for what we accomplished — 156 episodes, seven years is a good run."
As for a spin-off, Kitsis revealed that the show will be "put to bed" completely.
