With Once Upon a Time‘s midseason premiere is a few days away, ABC has recently announced that it has been renewed for season 6. While Once‘s ratings have slipped during the first half of season 5 (compared to recent season ratings), the midseason finale still managed to garner a strong 4.6 million viewers.
Thrilled to announce that #OnceUponATime has been picked up for season 6! Thank you ABC and thank you to the most extraordinary fans ever!

Season 5A was an interesting twist on the usual Once Upon a Time plot of heroes versus villains, and we can’t wait to see it continue in the rest of season 5 and season 6. The recent season of Once Upon a Time has completely flipped the series on its head in such an inventive and positive way that progressed the story along very well. So, with the renewal of Once, the creators will continue to break barriers and create new stories that excite everyone from the casual fan to the avid Oncer.
Once Upon a Time returns to ABC on Sunday, March 6 at 8/7c.
