Description: This is Fairy Tale Land. It’s filled with magic, monsters and all of the characters we all know from stories growing up. It’s real, and so are the people in it. But unlike the “happily ever after” you may have heard about, their stories continued, and The Evil Queen cast a Dark Curse over the land….This is Storybrooke. It’s a quiet, little, New England town filled with people who go about their everyday lives with no idea who they really are. The Queen’s Curse has trapped them here and placed her in near-complete control. They have no real memories and no real hope. ABC.com

Season End Status: Despite the ratings drop-off in its sixth season, this show got the seventh year renewal where it will go through a bit of a reboot. It is already well past the 88 episode mark that the syndication market prefers to see, so any additional seasons are just padding to its encore run and ABC/Disney is guaranteed to make their money back. For now, the network is using this one to plug an hour on low-viewership Fridays, and they could potentially keep it there for several more years if Disney wants to continue to run its stable of fairy-tale characters through the show’s storylines.
