Update: Also no surprise: in addition to Once Upon a Time, ABC has renewed Castle, Revenge, Grey's Anatomy, Modern Family, The Middle, and Suburgatory too.

The fates of other shows haven't been determined yet though we'll be a little surprised if Happy Endings, Private Practice, and Apt 23 aren't renewed (and more than a little surprised if Body of Proof is). Based on previous years, I'd guess most, if not all of the ABC renewals and cancellations will be out of the way by the end of the day Friday.

original post:

Once Upon a Time executive producer and co-creator Adam Horowitz just tweeted the following:

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!

Another one that wasn't ever in doubt. No word on the episode order yet, but it's surely a full season. Finally an ABC renewal!

    So happy that Castle and Once Upon a Time is coming back. I would love to see GCB come back, but I guess I shouldn’t hold my breath. Honestly, do you think GCB will come back?

    I am so tired of the Body of Proof bashing. I believe Entertainment Weekly, who believes that it will be renewed, as the show is extremely popular overseas.

    ABC said they were only going to pick up 6 drama pilots and the current strongest top 6 seem to be… (NOT COUNTING MISTRESSES)

    1. Americana
    2. Nashville
    3. 666 Park Ave.
    4. Devious Maids
    5. Last Resort
    6. Red Widow (Penoza)
    *7. Mistresses

    Devious Maids actually may NOT be picked up, since its momentum has been fading very fast. Gilded Lilly’s and Beauty and The Beast I think are out of contention. Mistresses is not being counted of those 6 even though its definitely being picked up for Fall probably.

    Since I’m pretty sure ABC said they are only picking up 4 comedies, righ now they are…

    1. How To LIve With Your Parents…
    2. Malibu Country
    3. Neighbors
    4. American Judy

    I think that ABC should’ve picked up the other Shonda Rhimes drama pilot, THE CIRCLE, rather than Gilded Lilly’s.

    Oh good! I can now rest easy :)

    i think that any show above with a 2.0 rating or above will get renewed.

    I loved the script for 666 Park Ave, but I really hate the lead actress Rachael Taylor. I really wish they had cast someone else.

    SO happy about Castle and Once Upon a Time!!

    ok, so having watched last week’s revenge, I’ve calculated the dog to be at least 31 years old – she visited it after being released from juvenile hall for NYE 1993 – at least 12 yrs after her father was arrested, then bring it to current day and add 19 years and it’s a ripe age of 31 yrs old. Labs typically live to be 14 years old. Miracle dog! Just saying……nobody else noticed?

    OMG!! This weeks episode was epic. I can’t believe my family were so amazed by the writers imagination, and how it all comes together from StoryBook and StoryBrook. Amazed!! Great Job. Cannot wait until Fall!! :)
