Thought it made sense to just post this here rather than make a new thread, since they’re related:
“Eddie and Adam came in and talked with me right before the holiday about what some of their potential ideas might be for Season 7,” ABC entertainment president Channing Dungey told Deadline at TCA today. “There was some interesting stuff, we gave them some feedback, and they are now working and are going to come back and sit with me in a couple of weeks. I think that, having had worked on Lost, they have a very good sense of the engagement with fans and wanting to end the story in the right way.”
It will be after that meeting that Dungey and her team make a decision whether there will be a Season 7 of Once Upon A Time. But “regardless of what we decide to do at the end of this season, I think they think they would put a little bit of a bow here, and then there is a next piece that comes after that, so they are trying to figure out what that is and how that works.”
Dungey declined to comment whether that “next piece” would be a different incarnation of Once, a spinoff or a something else. But it’s clear that the series, which has reinvented itself a number of times, may be heading for its biggest reinvention yet as the show’s main storyline comes to an end this season. “There will be a little bit of closure in this particular narrative regardless of what happens with Season 7,” Dungey told Deadline.
Now I’m confused. So are they planning to end the main current storyline this Season, with plans of doing some sort of reboot for a potential Season 7? If that’s really what’s going on, it seems like maybe 1) Adam and Eddy want to be prepared in case they don’t get renewed. 2) If they do get renewed, certain cast members like Bobby and Gosh may not return, so they have plans to change things up to counter that. Still not quite sure what this all means.
