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!

    Oh please tell me they are just holding off on announceing Happy Endings getting renewed. I really need it in my life. If it gets renewed then all my shows are safe.

  • dazzag

    @Dazzag: you probaby won’t know officially until the ABC schedule comes out next week and Missing isn’t on it.

  • Dan

    Where’s Happy Endings, Private Practice and Last Man Standing? Also possibly GCB, Scandal and Apartment 23.

  • The End

    Interesting that most of the Once Upon a Time cast and crew had no idea prior that the show was renewed, people breaking the news to them on twitter, happy times and celebrations indeed.

  • dazzag

    ok thanks i still have a lil hope it will be there but i understand why it whouldnt be with the ratings

  • Bunny

    So I guess you guys were wrong on Happy Endings…I knew it.

    Folks: this isn’t ALL the renewals ABC is likely to do. Some may come later tonight, others tomorrow.

    That disgusting Suburgatory got renewed uuuggh. It won’t make it to see a season 3

  • Bunny

    I thought Happy Endings was 100%

  • RyanCanada

    Happy endings wtf/????

  • were123

    Once Upon a Time, Revenge and The Middle!!! Some of my favorite ABC shows have been renewed :D

  • Dan

    Happy Endings will still be renewed, all the shows mentioned on this press release were just on the “definitely renewed” list. THey are no brainers lke how A Gifted Man was canceled.

    The real news is when we find out the fate on Unforgettable CSI NY and Miami.

  • rob60990

    My guess is all of these are full seasons. The rest of the renewals will be 13-18 episodes.

  • oebie

    So sad Desperate Housewives is ending… I was used to it seening it on the renewal list.

    A very bittersweet ending indeed.

  • The End


    Indeed, Once Upon a Time will definatly be 22 episodes. Speaking of that, most of the cast appear to be on twitter now. Word obviously has filtered around that they’re coming back.

  • RyanCanada

    If Happy Endings isnt renewed i will boycott ABC

  • Bunny

    What went wrong with your prediction of Happy Endings?
