ABC’s only other move thus far this spring on any of its current series was the cancellation of

promo said the freshman hit would be back for Season 2, which of course is a foregone conclusion, but ABC has yet to officially announce anything.)

Great news! And I approve of your choice of photo! LOVING the Captain Swan!
Agree. Had a feeling the show was coming back/ And i love Emma and Hook too <3
First renewal for ABC. Floodgates are open, let’s see where Castle lands :D
About time ABC got one return series so far. Hope the network can add several returning series to the renewal block.
Great news love once upon a time :)
That’s great. I was not impressed with the descriptions of ABC’s new shows in another article.
Pretty much a foregone conclusion. Like the Captain Swan Cobra pic you chose! ;)
Such amazing news! So happy we’ll have another wonderful year of OUAT. I can’t wait for more incredible storytelling from Horowitz & Kitsis, as well as more Captain Swan, Outlaw Queen, Rumbelle (hopefully) & Snowing! Maybe a little Sleeping Warrior, too? Best news of the week.
My favorite show has been renewed!!!!!! YAY!!!!! I’m so happy to hear this news. I’m also grateful because this means we’ll get more Captain Swan, Snowing, Rumbelle & Outlaw Queen next season. Bless the TV gods!
Kinda no brainer Since ABC is owned by Disney and OUAT is basically one long huge Disney advert for them in sense (not putting it down – good show) .
And the main four couple…. and my very favourite – Emma/Hook #CaptainSwan <3
Great news!! Excellent choice on picture tbqh! YAY #OUAT #CaptainSwan
well this was a no brainer. I hate it when ABC waits til the season finale period to renew their stuff
Yes! Not a surprise, but always great to get the confirmation. I look forward to many more stories about Hook and Emma… and those other characters (well I look forward to some stories about the other characters, but mostly I only give a care about Hook and Emma ;) )
Amazing news, not that I’m surprised. It was definitely going to get renewed. I still LOVE this show, flaws and all, and would love to see it go on for several more years. So many more characters I want to see them tackle and put their twists on and of course more stories to tell for the main characters. This summer hiatus is gonna suck!
Yay! So excited to continue sharing Emma and Hooks story. Love the show. Love the cast. congratulations to everyone involved :)
I’m loving captain swan too but I’m afraid that things are about to shake up with them in a major major major way either in the finale or in season 5. I can’t wait to see what they have for the 100th episode.
