Update May 13th: For the next season spoilers you should visit our Once Upon a Time Season 2 Spoilers page!

page.
ABC has finally announced the official renewal of Once Upon A Time. Many have said that due to the series’ success the renewal was merely a formality, but none the less, it’s now official. OUAT is the highest rated new broadcast drama of the season pulling in 10 million viewers this week, nailing their targeted demographic. Once Upon A Time recently sat main stage at Paley Fest and co-showrunner Edward Kitsis spoiled a few of their Season 2 ideas.

“We have some ideas for Season 2,” One element of a second season will be the addition of the Little Mermaid character of Ariel, who was alluded to on the show a few weeks ago. “It’s been challenging to pull off (this show) every week because we’re trying to balance two worlds and thematically link them,” said Kitsis, who co-created the show with Adam Horowitz. “We were never interested in just retelling the old (fairy) tales. Kitsis also revealed that all Once Upon A Time cast members were the producers’ first choice for the roles. “Everyone that we asked (to be on the show) said yes.”


Once Upon A Time is practically a sure thing for a Season 2 pick-up and everyone seems to be in agreement. The fresh and twisty interpretations on everyone’s favorite fairytales bring in both young and old, impacting pop culture on a very visible level with sprawling storylines and a variety of unique characters to latch onto. So, sit tight TV Family, keep watching and I will keep you up to date on Once Upon A Time’s eminent Season 2 renewal.

  • Kimroxanne11

    Love this show so much and i cant wait for every episode to come out ;)

  • Brituc1

    I’ll be very disappointed if this show doesn’t get picked up for a second season. Classic fair tale characters in unfamiliar stories tied to the real world make for a unique and terrific show

  • Parra0807

    I hope they will wrap up this story and start a new one with new characters.

  • HannahMarie93

    THERE MUST BE A SEASON TWO…
    or i will be seriously upset! Haha
     In todays economy, in todays world, we all need a little escape from the real world…. even if that is watching an amazing show like OUAT for 60 minutes every sunday….  Everyone loves fantasy as children and I believe even more so as adults, if we could go back and spend a good day/ re-live an old memory in our childhood, without a care in the world, i dont believe we wouldn’t take the chance if it arose :) OUAT <3

  • Chris

    It needs to be renewed for another season. It is far from over and can’t keep us hanging on whether or not good will triumph over evil. Too many shows don’t conclude and this one needs a happily ever after

  • Snow White

    I really hope this gets picked up…..I have watched it faithfully every week since it started and love the characters and the back and forth storylines.  We have so many cop shows, reality shows and generally bad tv, that is is a breath of fresh air.

    i wll be terribly upset if this doesnt get picked up. its the only show i ever considered good enough to take my time from my sundays. never watched tv on sundays before this.

  • Ziggy-1990

    the show had better be picked up for a 2nd season or i will really really be pissed off and will boycott abc the rest of my life…it came close to happening when they canceled Witches of East Wick and will definitely happen if they cancel Once Upon A Time!!

  • gost!

     Imam i ja mnogo ideja pa ih sprovovim u delo. Brze to malo!!!

  • Naynaylovesyou15

    This show is to awesome to not have another season!!!!

  • http://www.facebook.com/breeannahb Breeannah Shaní Blackshear

    i loved witches of east wick. The way the show ended was so messed up for the viewers to watch. I really wanted to know what was up with that guy. I just watched the episode of once upon a time and thought that if they didn’t get a second season i was going to cry and i am 21 so it sounds pathetic but i don’t care

  • Lisa

    I LOVE THE LITTLE MERMAID. yay! :)

  • Verona Paterson

    The writers have made a fantastic connection between reality and fantasy with this show.  It’s the old adage; Good versus evil.  Made for all age groups.  You love to hate some of the characters.  You sympathize with them and wish you could get in there and smack Emma on the head and tell her to think for goodness sake.  Open your mind to all the possibilities.  I am sure hoping this show gets a secon and a 3rd season.

  • Guidto

    Henry lives and Emma does break the curse

  • Fullbloomgirls

    Hands down, BEST show on TV right now.  Genius – Every week I am amazed at what they pull off!!!!!!  LOVE IT!

  • Hoppy465

    If they aren’t going to renew the show then there better be a Happy Ending on Sunday!!!!

  • ICuRaPro

    did anyone actually read the article? It has ALREADY been pickup for season 2…. 

    “ABC has finalley announced the official renewal of Once Upon A Time.”

    It was the first damn line…

  • PussinBoots

    Once Opon A Time actually makes me interested in fairy tales because befor fairy tales were a bore to me.

  • PussinBoots

    I meant Upon not opon. :)

  • PussinBoots

    I also think they should fit in PussinBoots he is my favorite fairy talke character.

  • Cinderella

    This show has made me want to read the the fairy tales again.  Except what I really want to read is the originals.  You know the grimm’s fairy tales.  They aren’t as beautiful as you might think if you don’t know anything about the originals.  They are actually horror stories.

  • Jojo.

    I absolutely love this show! <3

  • http://www.facebook.com/demaka Johnny Gilbert

    No one ever reads articles before commenting. That’s probably one of my biggest pet peaves.We’re just looking at a page full of idiots. It’s almost enough to make me question liking this show. :P

  • Marrie

    don’t you see this article have been updated on may13th. People commenting before that date were maybe referring to an article that wasn’t sure if there is going to be a season 2.

    Don’t question, the show is great and may even top ‘Lost’ when it’s all said and done. ‘Non-readers’ follow every show, lol :) Thanks for reading and posting!!

  • Mtadiva

    I so love this show. I’ve always loved fairy tails, mythology, and aeops fables….of course Grimm tales also. Once Upon a Time had me stuck from the very first episode. I can’t wait for season 2. This was a very interesting twist to the original fairy tails we all know and loved as children ^.~

  • yourmom

    ??? um PussinBoots was made up for Shreck :( thats sooooo noot an original fairy tail character an has no place in once upon a time…. 

  • Riley

    Afraid not. Puss in Boots was around long before Shrek. His name was actually Master Cat or The Booted Cat (as translated). He’s a French story from the 17th century.

  • Melmilo

    woo hoo!!! I LOVE this show. I am so happy there will be a Season 2 – it can’t come soon enough

  • Yakirol

    I hope there are many seasons of Once as I watched faithfully every week.  I shared with many friends how very interesting the plots were and what interesting things we found out each week regarding our favorite fairy tale friends.  Looking forward to the start of Season 2

  • Idreamnwax

    I have never been one to get involved in a tv show .. I have a hard time sitting through a movie … and I do not MISS this show for nothing — I am glued to the tv and shhhushing everyone in the house!  LOVE LOVE LOVE this show!

  • Kia

    Such and outstanding and catching show, can’t wait for season 2 to be released!

  • Baby_velle

    PROPPPPPER!!!…love the season finale   Can`t wait for next season!

  • Aroobty_2011

    Im waiting for season 2 to come :( cant wait much i need to see what will happen after everybody remembered who they are

  • nana

    I really want to see thumbelina portrayed in this, and other fairy tales I know.

  • Ale

    They need to add like, Aladdin! And Genie!! but they wouldn’t add another person with magical powers would they?? I am excited to see Ariel in it. I love the challenges of them trying to add as many characters as they can into the story seamlessly. I’d say good job so far OUAT!

  • Tricia_laboratory

    where is Rapunzel?  i hope she will also appear in season 2..:)

  • Tricia_laboratory

  • Vikas

    waitin is worse….damn but waitin for season 2 is more worse….ABC pliz air season 2 soonest!!!! :)

  • OnceUponATime#1Fan!

    There has to be a season two because at the end of Season One, there was the love potion surrounding Storybrook. It would be such a coat hanger if there was no season two because without Season 2 we would have to think of the rest which would be quite annoying.

  • Gv

    I watch the episodes however, Loved t in the beginning, finding it to get very slow and predictable. The mane flashbacks of the snowwhite and queen story just seems so repetitive. I love the way the writers have moulded the characters, but seriously Emma is getting boring to… she has the same frustrations throughout all episodes, when will she “grow up” a bit and see what’s happening…?
    Hope they do something much better next season… if not I’m not  following anymore…

    why do all the great shows get canceled and all of these terrible shows goes on,if once upon a time does not get a second season and third, i will be highly upset.

    Um..”peaves” is actually spelt “peeves”. Bad spelling is one of my pet peeves! 

  • Gest

    I really want to know when it will start the season 2

  • Doctor who/ Pineapple Hybrid!

    Wait… so has season 2 been aired yet? This is about the 10th website i’ve searched, and some of the others say that 2 series have been aired…
    If it hasn’t been aired, then i think it is due to be aired in the fall… (whenever that is)
    I’m not quite sure how they could continue with a third and a forth series, but i REALLY hope it does!
    I’d say this show is almost as good as Doctor Who and Merlin!… almost, it will be just as good if they find a way to continue it without stuffing the story.
    =b

  • http://twitter.com/#!/natashafine Natasha

    There has only been 1 season. The writers have just now sat down to break ground on season 2 for ‘Once Upon A Time’, and it will premiere in September with all the other Fall shows :) Thanks for reading and posting!!

  • Audra

    spelt should be spelled… practice what ya preach babe.

  • lover for once upon a time

    ihave watched all session and dont know when the next one is coming out

  • AMB1371

    when Show session 2?

  • fee

    In American English, spelt primarily refers to the hardy wheat grown mostly in Europe, and the verb spell makes spelled in its past-tense and past-participial forms. In varieties of English from outside the U.S., spelt and spelled both work as past-tense and past-participial forms of spell. They are interchangeable, and both are common.

  • Rachel

    I’m SO excited that they’re including the Little Mermaid! In my opinion, that is the #1 most underrated fairy tale.  I know they’ll include elements of the Disney version into her story, which I’m fine with. But I really hope they don’t just leave it at that. I really hope they include elements of the original Andersen version, particularly the dagger and the sea-foam (I want a happy ending of course, and I’m sure the writers of OUAT do to, but I would just like to see these things included in some way). Can’t wait to see Ariel’s appearance!

  • Rachel

     Don’t just stick to the Grimm stories…try some of Hans Christen Anderson’s (The Little Mermaid, Thumbelina) and The Arabian Nights!

  • Helio

     Well, I hope the second season will come soon, but I hope that the producers also honor the end of the story, if not for having a third season. Because ultimately, if it was not have the second, how would this end of series would today? someone can tell? Respect is good, and I like it. Have respect for their audience. Congratulations for the project however, was a good inspiration in the midst of so much blood running down of TV screens.

  • calimeroe

    I like this serie. She is interesting.
    But scenario easy to guess for season two.
    Baelfire is back and found a way to stop his father Rumpeltilskin.
    What do you think ?

  • TheHope

    “It was the first damn line.” Right? You’re funny. People: read the article. It’s not even that long. If you love the show so much. read it.

  • michael prescott

    i think we should mix it up like for an example Tidus as a blitzball player but in storybroke he is a soccor player or basketball
    woody from toy story looking for Jessie the cowgirl
    as for squall we could class him as deaf in ff8 he never talked
    also what if the evil queen stopped snow white from having the child who would convince her

  • Paige

    Once Upon A TIme. Wow how it brings back memory’s of childhood, To the Creators of the show. YOU ROCK! To have such an open mind and imagination to magic and all its creations. Hoping to see many more seasons and with fabulous and wonderous storys to bring to the heart.. Thank you for bringing some magic back to the hearts of people
