We’re hardly surprised, but it’s nonetheless gratifying to get the confirmation, from one of the showrunners himself, that ABC‘s first year fantasy Once Upon a Time has been renewed for another season. And fans of the befuddled townsfolk of Storybrooke rejoice!
Adam Horowitz, who along with Edward Kitsis is co-creator and showrunner for the series, made the announcement via Twitter:
It’s official — #OnceUponATime has been picked up for season 2.Thank you all so much for watching, we’re beyond thrilled to continue on!
— Adam Horowitz (@AdamHorowitzLA) May 11, 2012
And there you have it. No official confirmation as to whether it’s for a full 22-episode season or for the now-common 13 episodes with a hope of “picking up the back nine” sometime during the first half. We’ll keep you posted. In the meantime, congratulations to the production and to the fans!
The Once Upon a Time Season 1 Finale, starring Ginnifer Goodwin, Jennifer Morrison, Lana Parilla, Josh Dallas, and Robert Carlyle, airs this Sunday, May 13 at 8/7c on ABC.
