Sadly, all good things must come to an end, and it seems like the long running ABC show Once Upon A Time may be coming to an end sooner than a little expected. For some time there had been some uncertainty whether or not the show would make it to it’s seventh season. But after today’s news of the show’s star, Jennifer Morrison, deciding to leave the show at the end of the season, it looks like those uncertainties will be certain.

It’s hard to continue a show when your main character decides to call it quits. But it’s something that’s been brewing for quite some time now. And to solidify those thoughts of the show’s demise, Morrison’s character, Emma Swan, recently tied the knot on the show wrapping up a relationship that had been going on since about season three.

Other stars of the show, Lana Parrilla (Regina), Robert Carlyle (Mr. Gold), and Colin O’Donoghue (Captain Hook), were reportedly in negotiations to extend their contracts. But it looks like there won’t be any need to continue those talks. It was also rumored that Ginnifer Goodwin (Snow White) and Josh Dallas (Prince Charming) were going to follow Morrison’s lead and leave the show as well. It would make sense considering she plays their daughter on the show. Here is what Morrison had to say about leaving the show,

“After very careful consideration, I have decided that creatively and personally, it is time for me to move on. Emma Swan is one my favorite characters that I have ever played. My 6 years on ONCE UPON A TIME has changed my life in the most beautiful ways. I am absolutely blown away by the passion and commitment of the Oncer fans. I am so honored to have been a central part of such a special show. I will be forever grateful to Adam, Eddy, and ABC for giving me the gift of playing Emma Swan.”

The show could, theoretically, spin-off in a thousand directions because of all the characters on the show. Mr. Gold, Regina, and Captain Hook (even though he’s married to Emma Swan) would all make reasonable leads. However, Morrison’s character was the main focal point of the series. It would have to be called something else if another character took the lead.

The show has been quite a success for the network (as you can tell by it’s six seasons), and the season finale is slated to air this Sunday. Hopefully the show will end on a happy note for it’s fans. It would be a shame if it left audiences with some kind of cliffhanger and no real chance for resolution.

Once Upon A Time airs Sunday on ABC with it’s 2-hour season finale.
