To the surprise of absolutely no one, (No, really. Is anyone surprised? We all figured this was the date, didn’t we? The promo did say March), ABC has announced their mid-season schedule, and Once Upno A Time is due to return on Sunday, March 5th.
TVLine was the first to report the news. “Time After Time,” ABCs’ time-travel bet, will air it’s two-hour premiere right after Once Upon A Time on March 5th.
When we last left our heroes in the fall finale, all the way back in December, Emma and Regina were stuck in the wish-realm, Robin Hood was sorta-maybe-perhaps back, Charming and Snow were still cursed, the Evil Queen was a snake (I kid you not, a snake) and Belle and Rumple’s kid was apparently the one in Emma’s visions. So yeah, we’re really interested in what’s coming next.
Especially as there was a rather interesting, possibly engagement ring in the promo. Way to tease us, ABC. Way to tease us.
Also this week, when addressing the future of Once Upon A Time with EW, Channing Dungey seemed very open to the possibility of a seventh season for the fairy-tale drama, and though there was no confirmation of a renewal, she did promise that, in case the show was ending this year, the show-runners would know with plenty of time to give the characters the send-off they deserve.
