Once Upon a Time is an adventure fantasy television series and has been created by the magnificent duo Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz who are well-known for their work in the supernatural drama show Lost. The series has been produced by ABC network. Nevertheless the odds of Once Upon a Time Season 8 happening anytime soon.
The makers did an extraordinary job with the television series as they gave a modern hint to the classic fairy tales that have been ruling society for a long period. Once Upon a Time features a number of characters and components that have been inspired by other distinctive popluar folklores. Not to spoil it for the newbie to the fantasy show, but the series also has a couple of themes, tales as well as characters that are adopted from the Disney universe.
The storyline of Once Upon a Time mainly takes place in a fictional place called Storybrooke, Maine, however, moves to another fictional town in Seattle by the time the seventh season of the series was aired.
As said before, Once Upon a Time wonderfully displays a perfect blend of the world in fairy tales with a subtle glimmer of the present world. The series incredibly connects the fate of both the timelines together. The series feature some of our favorite prince and princesses such as Snow White and Prince Charming which will be incomplete without the cruel antagonist like the Evil Queen.
The seventh season of Once Upon a Time was released on 6th October 2017 and was screened on the ABC channel. However, the release of Once Upon a Time Season 8 seems like a distant dream.
With the premiere of their debut season, Once Upon a Time has been one of the most talked television series among the viewers which showed in the series rating chart. The first season of the fantasy drama scored a total of 4.1 as well as earned positive feedback from the viewers with over 11 million audiences following the show's magical storyline.
So it didn't come as a surprise when the show became popular and managed to create a considerable amount of fanbase. The show was also amassed to gain positive reviews from the critics. The series also proved to be successful with their ratings never diminishing below 3.2 and achieved all the love from the viewers.
Regardless, after the release of the fourth season, the buzz of the series started taking a sudden downfall. And by the time the fifth season of Once Upon a Time hit the small screens the ratings already took a serious hit with the odds of recovering also lowering.
After the premiere of the sixth season, the ratings took a big blow from 3.2 to 1.5. Soon the network went into a lengthy discussion of ending the series for good. However, the ratings of the seventh season were even worse and they went down to 0.9. The final episode of the seventh season of Once Upon a Time aired for the last time on 18th May 2018.
If the makers are making good on their decision that it is possible that we might not get to witness Once Upon a Time Season 8 in the near future as it will remain canceled.
As of now, Once Upon a Time Season, 8 has been announced to be canceled and it seems like it won't be making a comeback anytime soon.
The plot of Once Upon a Time begins where several fairy tales end. While several stories of fairy tales conclude on a good note, Once Upon a Time will take us on a fantasy ride that certainly doesn't have any happy ever afters.
The first 6 seasons of Once Upon a Time mainly revolved around several characters from well-known fairy tale stories who were propelled to a town called Storybrooke, Maine, without any memories by the Evil Queen, Regina.
This resulted in the entry of Snow White's daughter- Emma Swan, Swan’s son- Henry Mills along with Prince Charming who eventually came to the town's rescue. Emma turns out to be the savior of the town as it's revealed that her son's fairy tale book 'Once Upon a Time' provides a solution to permanently lift the curse which lays the ultimate power in the hands of Emma.
The storyline of the seventh season of Once Upon a Time was set several years following the conclusion of the sixth season. It showed a very mature and adult Henry residing in another town called Hyperion Heights, Seattle. Henry is also joined by Regina as well as Captain Hook in this season. However, just like their predecessor seasons this season also come with a new curse that is existing in their new home.
The seventh season also features Lucy who is shown sharing the secrets of the secretive town to her parents Henry and Cinderella. And of course the show wouldn't be complete without the antagonists and so the new villains were introduced which included Mother Gothel, Lady Tremaine along Dr. Facilier.
Once Upon a Time has released seven seasons as of now with a tally of one hundred and fifty-five episodes and all of them can be streamed on international streaming networks such as Netflix, Hotstar as well as Disney plus.
