Once Upon a Time Will End After Season 7

once upon a time season 7 will end

Once Upon a Time will finally have its bittersweet happy ending.

When I opened up my Instagram today, I was surprised with Jen Morisson (Emma Swan), Lana Parrilla (Evil Queen Regina), Emilie de Ravin (Belle), and Colin O'Donoghue's (Captain Hook) updates - they were all seem saying goodbye to one of my favorite TV series, Once Upon a Time. After seeing a comment about the show being canceled, I quickly did a google search and found the news. It's true - Once Upon a Time Season 7 will be the last season of the series.

I’ll never forget the day I walked in to audition as Evil Queen Regina for Eddy and Adam. I was wearing all black (of course) and had this crazy, dreadlock looking wrap draped over my shoulders. I had no idea where this pilot was going to go but I knew it was something special. I walked out of the audition room and down the hall was an old photograph of the OG Evil Queen herself. I knew then, something magical was about to begin. It’s been 7 years now and I couldn’t be prouder of what we all have created. Adam and Eddy had this crazy idea in their minds years ago and it turned into a fantastical phenomenon. This show has touched so many people’s lives, changed them for the better, has inspired us to grow in ways we never could’ve imagined. It’s brought hope, joy, friendships and love to so many. I am lucky and blessed to have been a part of it for 7 years. I want to thank the cast, our incredibly, hard working crew and the writers for your dedication and hard work over the years. Thank you to the studio and network for believing in us, supporting us and giving us a home to tell our stories. But most importantly, I want to thank our fans. We honestly wouldn’t be here without your love, support and loyalty to ONCE. Thank you for standing by us all of these years. We hope we’ve made you proud and that the magic this show has brought in to your lives never dies. Thank you for all you’ve given back to us in return and always remember to keep that magic alive. Signed with love, respect, gratitude and honor, Lana ❤️ #OUAT 🙏

The Reason

once upon a time season 7 reboot

Season 7 is a total reboot of the series, losing almost 90% of the original characters who we all learned to love from the previous 6 seasons. With that, a large percentage of the show's ratings dropped as well. If you love reading comments from real people, more than 50% hates this new storyline featuring adult Henry Mills in a new world named Hyperion Heights. This is a huge adjustment since we're all used to seeing Emma Swan and the whole Charming family causing and solving problems in Storybrooke.

OUAT's creators, Eddy Kitsis and Adam Horowitz, may act like they weren't surprised with the sudden cancellation at all. But after bringing a whole lot of new characters to the show, how can they pull off a good "Happy Ending" to the series when we're just getting to know them and there are only 12 episodes left? Can they also bring back Ginnifer Goodwin (Snow White) and Josh Dallas (Prince Charming) anytime soon to give closure to their characters like what Jen and Emilie did during the first few episodes? Or maybe bring back some of the old and main characters for the finale?
