As expected, ABC’s Once Upon a Time has conjured up a Season 2 renewal, TVLine has confirmed.
Other freshman shows getting a pick-up just days prior to ABC’s official upfronts presentation are Revenge and Suburgatory, while Grey’s Anatomy, Castle, The Middle and Modern Family are also officially set to return.
Series co-creator Adam Horowitz broke the good news via Twitter on Thursday evening, saying, “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!”
Once premiered the week before Halloween to 12.8 million total viewers while scoring a 3.9 demo rating, making it the TV season’s top-rated freshman drama — a crown it has worn ever since.
The Once Upon a Time Season 1 finale airs this Sunday at 8.7c.
