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!

    YES! I love OUAT! It’s the best new show this season by far, IMO. Hopefully it will run for many, many more season :)

    Also love the Middle! So glad it got renewed!

  • Avery

    It Must Be ABC!

  • Jared

    All expected. Still, the expectation doesn’t make it any less sweet. Very happy for all of these shows, particularly Castle, Revenge, and Once Upon A Time.

  • Roco

    Scandel better be given a 13 episode order, with option for more. As for Missing that is an awesome show, but it should have had a summer run.

  • DW

    as a fan of missing , i thought it was 10 and if it did well another 10 if not oh well we got 10.

    yay on ouat , modern fam ,and suburgatory.

  • Avery

    Announce the return of TGIF!

  • Tommy M.

    Patience Bunny! There’s still plenty of time for more renewal announcements.

    Ausiello just tweeted:

    Hearing HAPPY ENDINGS and PRIVATE PRACTICE will also be renewed. Ditto APARTMENT 23. Not sure about SCANDAL and BODY OF PROOF.

  • DW

    if happy endings comes back , i’m boycotting happy endings. :)

    @Roco Scandel? really? If you’re a fan, you should at least spell it correctly. LOL I’m confident it’s getting renewed! I think it has the potential to grow.

  • Charles

    Yessssss so glad ABC renewed Once Upon A Time for season 2

    If Scandal was such a “big” hit, why is it not on the renewal list while Revenge is?


  • Bookworm

    Just saw a Deadline report, saying Private Practice is still on the 13-episode pick up.

    Scandal is “looking good”.

    GCB and Body of Proof are riding on the ABC’s new drama choices.

  • SherLOCKED (The Mighty Cringe)

    Where does this place LMS?

    I would have thought it would have been renewed with the rest of the comedy batch.

  • Bunny

    I knew something was wrong when they the Uk was going to be shown an unaired ep of Happy Endings…It was just like Dollhouse..I knew that was a sign..

  • Kavyn

    SpoilerTV claims that ABC will likely renew BOP and Scandal, as well as pick up some pilots from other networks (“Let It Go” and “El Jefe”)

  • Gaius Bolling

    would it be safe to say that other than CBS, ABC has had a lot of success this year? I know we wanted to hear about these renewals a lot sooner but a lot of them were no brainers. they had a good year this year

  • Lisa

    Every other show on tv could get cancelled tomorrow as long as I get to see one season of Castle and Beckett happy and together. Thanks ABC.

  • david

    i finally pick 2 new shows that don’t end at the 1st season, yes!
