Once Upon a Time Has Been Renewed for Season 6!

Get ready for more memory loss. Get ready for more memory loss.


ABC’s Once Upon a Time hasn’t even returned from its mid-season hiatus yet, but it’s already coming back for another year!

The amnesiac fairytale mashup show comes back to finish its fifth season this Sunday, March 6, but it’s one of a group of regular shows to which ABC is granting early renewals. According to The Hollywood Reporter, this is thanks to Channing Dungey, ABC’s new entertainment president, as the network did not previously have a habit of giving out early renewals.

Co-creator Adam Horowitz tweeted out the good news to the loyal online fanbase:

Also getting early renewals are Fresh off the BoatThe Goldbergs, and Quantico. Hopefully, knowing they’ll be around for another year will take some pressure off and help the creative process along. I now expect an extra layer of bonkers-ness next season on OUaT.
