About the series

Once Upon a Time is an American dramatic fairy tale TV series created by Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz. Produced by the Kitsis/Horowitz production company, the hit fantasy series first aired on ABC on October 23, 2011.

Set in the made-up town seaside town of Storybooke, Maine, Once Upon a Time centers on the lives of Storybooke residents who are actually fairy tale characters who’ve been transported to the modern world and cursed to live without their real memories. Each episode usually has two parallel storylines- one from the modern day and another from another time the character’s life, before being cursed. The show has been so popular with the fans that a spin-off series called Once Upon a Time in Wonderland — with a total of 13 episodes that premiered on October 10, 2013, but was not picked up after its finale on April 3, 2014.

Current season, reviews and renewal

Season 5 of Once Upon a Time premiered on September 27, 2015 on ABC. The show is slated to air 20 one hour episodes. Despite generally favorable reviews from critics and 11 million viewer premiere of season two, the ratings have been on a slow decline. Season 4 averaged just under 9 million viewers per episode. That said, the show is set to celebrate its 100th episode in the mid-season premiere which is sure to boost ratings. The network will likely also be watching carefully to see whether it will renew Once Upon a Time for season 6. Fans will have to stay tuned to find out whether their favorite character will live another life in 2016.

Season 5 recap

A 23-part fifth installment of Once Upon a Time concluded in the US on May 15, 2016 and delivered 4 million viewers, while the whole chapter has averaged 4.4 million fans per episode. Overall, this season’s ratings declined by %32 when compared to the fourth installment that got a sizeable ratings’ boost thanks to its Frozen storyline. Luckily for the fans of the show, the decreased viewership numbers at this point don’t matter much since the series has already been greenlit for another run. The audience found the finale a little bit underwhelming, with the exception of the return of the Evil Queen, so if the producers want the show to go on, they will have to work a little harder to make the upcoming season a little more exciting. Stay tuned for more of the recent news and spoilers on season 6 of Once Upon a Time.
