Once Upon a Time: Ending; No Season Eight for ABC TV Series

It's time to wish upon a star for a happy ending. The Once Upon a Time TV show will end after seven seasons on ABC. Last month, during TCA winter press tour, ABC Entertainment President Channing Dungey said she was "cautiously optimistic" about a season eight renewal. While no one is outright saying Once Upon a Time is cancelled, it is ending, and the network seems to have made the decision, not creators Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis. An ABC fairy tale drama, the seventh season of Once Upon a Time stars original cast members Lana Parrilla, Robert Carlyle, and Colin O’Donoghue, alongside newcomers Andrew J. West, Gabrielle Anwar, Dania Ramirez, Alison Fernandez, and Mekia Cox. It is a reboot of the story fans watched during the series’ first six installments, which also featured Jennifer Morrison as Emma Swan, with Ginnifer Goodwin

‘Once Upon a Time’ canceled: No fairy-tale ending after seven seasons on ABC

ABC is pulling the plug on “Once Upon a Time” after seven seasons. Co-creators Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis had tried to take the fantasy show in a new direction this year after losing most of the original cast. While hard-core fans followed “Ouat” from its traditional Sunday time slot to Friday, the audience was not large enough to merit renewal by the Alphabet network.

This reboot built on the season 6 two-hour finale, which had introduced two new characters including a young man who has lost hope and now lives as a recluse (Andrew J. West) and his daughter Lucy (Alison Fernandez) who has her own book of fairy tales. He was a grown-up version of Henry (Jared Gilmore), the boy whose search for his birth mother Emma (Jennifer Morrison) to the dismay of his adoptive mother Regina (Lana Parrilla) kicked off the series back in 2011.

Morrison only returned for

Once Upon a Time Casts Zelena's Fiancé!!!

Zelena is sticking around for the foreseeable future on Once Upon a Time. 

The former villain got a whole new persona thanks to the latest curse, and when we caught up with her on Once Upon a Time Season 7, she was going by the name of Kelly. 

Regina was shocked to learn that her sibling's cursed alter ego was engaged and gearing up to be married. In a surprising twist, Zelena still had feelings for the man when the cursed persona was purged from her body. 

So, it was inevitable that we would be meeting the man who stole The Wicked Witch of the West's heart at some point. 

Thanks to EW, we now know who will be playing the role of Chad, and he will be familiar to fans of Marvel's Runaways

Kip Pardue has landed a guest-starring role on the ABC drama's 150th episode as Chad.

Once Upon a Time: Lana Parrilla To Make Directorial Debut This Season!

Once Upon a Time may be on its annual winter hiatus, but series co-creator Adam Horowitz has been giving fans some tidbits from the second half of Once Upon a Time Season 7 via social media.

On Tuesday night, Horowitz took to Twitter with the front page of the script for Once Upon a Time Season 7 Episode 17.

The episode is titled "Chosen," and we can only assume that has something to do with Mother Gothel and her coven of witches.

"Chosen" will be directed by series star, Lana Parrilla, who has been with the show since it debuted back in 2011.

Nothing else is known about the hour, but this will mark Parrilla's directorial debut. It's not uncommon for cast members to direct episodes of aging drama series.

The ABC series famously rebooted for Once Upon a Time Season 7 and it paved the way for the departure of much of the show's cast,
