It's good, cheesy, and it doesn't lie.
The show returns for the second half of its final season on March 2, and the finale will air in May, after well over episodes. Itself The seventh season was a creative reboot for the show, which lost most of its core cast members when their contracts ended after the sixth season. Back in January, Dungey said she hoped the show would be back.
I think that after seven years and episodes, I think they felt that it was time to bring the show to an end. And how did you two Once upon a time hook dies about it? So the fact that we are now episodes later, I feel like we have nothing to complain about.
We have had a great run. We have had so much fun doing this, and the success of the show was bigger than we even dreamt of. This show has created like a universe of fandom that is amazing.
So in every way it exceeded our hopes and expectations. We were just trying to not be the first show cancelled. It is something of an accomplishment to even reach seven seasons, especially in this competitive climate. The world of doing 22 or 23 episodes a year of a genre, serialized show is becoming increasingly rare on broadcast especially, so we feel really lucky that we had a network like ABC that really supported this idea and this kind of scale and level of support for this kind of ambitious stuff that we were trying to do.
When did that decision come down? Did it happen in time enough for you to write to a series finale? We went into the season knowing this was a possibility. There was no guarantee; we were taking a big risk, and so we had two different scenarios for the finale.
We knew this was a distinct possibility from the moment the season started. So it has always sort of been in the back of our minds designing things to wrap up the end of this year if need be. For us, I think in a lot of ways last year was kind of a series finale.
So in a lot of ways last year put, we felt, a nice bow on the first six seasons. So now we feel a different kind of pressure. I think last season was a more traditional series finale in the sense of wrapping up the six season long story.
For this year the approach is much more about like capturing the feeling of what the show is and giving the audience that taste one last time so that the show can go off into the sunset and people can walk away with their memories of what the show was as opposed to being a whole big thing about answering questions and settling big arcs.
We really want to keep that feeling alive and leave the audience with that as this season comes to an end. What did you learn from the experience of doing this last season? We knew last year that [several members of] the cast were leaving [stars Jennifer Morrison, Josh Dallas, Ginnifer Goodwin and others left after the sixth season ].
So we were faced with a major creative choice knowing that the show would continue into season 7. And we felt like we wanted to end that series the way we wanted to, and I think this year we did we learn a lot.
Of course, every time you launch something new you do. Ending a show is always bittersweet.
How much impact do you think the timeslot shift to Friday night had on the show? Obviously when you go to Friday night the ratings go down.
But I also think that if you just look at any show that is longer than five years that is what happens.Once Upon a Time (TV Series –) cast and crew credits, including actors, actresses, directors, writers and more.
This past season of Once Upon A Time was just wonderful. I loved the tie in with the Frozen characters! As I hadn't seen the animated movie (Frozen) at the time, I grabbed up the DVD when I saw the season 3 finale of Once Upon A time and the arrival of Elsa.
With the Once Upon a Time season 7 finale arriving this week, we've looked at why the final season hasn't worked. As ABC's Once Upon a Time kicked off its final run of 12 episodes on Friday night, one major character met a rather selfless end, while another, smaller death set in motion a dark new mystery.
Once Upon a Time: Will it return for a seventh season and should it? We're up for a reboot – with a few conditions. As fantasy drama Once Upon a Time nears the end of its sixth season, the future of the show is uncertain.
Will it return for a seventh season, and if so, how many of the long-standing cast members.
