Apesar da saída da protagonista Jennifer Morrison, Once Upon a Time foi renovada para a sétima temporada no canal ABC (via Deadline). [Atualização] Em seu Instagram, Rebecca Mader divulgou que não estará na nova temporada da série. Além disso, ela parabenizou Lana Parrilla, Robert Carlyle e Colin O’Donoghue, que devem ser os únicos nomes que vão retornar:
To my Darling Pretties, First of all I would like to start by congratulating Adam, Eddie, Lana, Bobby and Colin on the pick up of Once Upon A Time! I am truly happy for you all and most importantly for the fans that will get to keep tuning in each week to see where they will take us. A lot of you have been asking if I will be joining everyone in Season 7, so I wanted to let you know personally that unfortunately I am not. This wasn't my choice but a creative decision of the shows that I totally respect and understand. The most important thing is that you all know how much you mean to me. I am told frequently both online and in person that by being a part of such a special show I have in some way changed someone's life. This is hugely meaningful to me. I am here to let you know that I am the one who has been changed. Not just by playing such a well written multi-dimensional character but by the fandom itself. I have heard your stories, your pain, your struggles, your achievements and I have truly felt you. I have learned. I have grown. I am a better person because of you, the fans and everyone that blessed me with this opportunity to play such an iconic role. Congrats all and thank you! I look forward to the next. I invite you to come with me on this journey. I am forever changed. And I'm wicked. And Wicked Always Wins. Forever yours, Bex 💚
O site diz que Morrison ainda aparece em um episódio do novo ano e nomes como Ginnifer Goodwin e Josh Dallas também podem fazer participações especiais. No entanto, a série deve focar nas tramas de Lana Parrilla, Robert Carlyle, Colin O’Donoghue e Andrew J. West (The Walking Dead), que vai aparecer no episódio final da sexta temporada, antes de se tornar regular.
No Brasil, a série é transmitida pelo canal pago Sony.
