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!

    @Robert Seidman!!!

    Omg! I hope so!!!

  • PJM

    Uh, please tell me Happy Endings was renewed already…

  • Bookworm

    Wow on Body of Proof. I mean, I don’t dislike the show or anything but from reports and comments on here, it was dead.

    Is it really going to get renewed? Katelyn was on point must be.

  • Josh E

    I’m going to need an official renewal of Happy Endings ASAP. Ughhhhh.

  • Scandalfan

    I hope they renew PP and Scandal.

  • Kate

    Yay for Grey’s, Revenge, and MF!

  • Bunny


    Wait I don’t get it..who is right..SpoilerTV or Michael Ausiello

  • Justin

    Praying for a Scandal and PP renewal. *fingers cross*

  • SJ

    Come on, ABC, renew the remaining comedies, GCB, Proof, Practice and dump the rest! You know you want to… :)

  • H8R

    Rumor Has it that ABC is set to announce Happy Endings renewal any day!

  • Dan C.

    Yes! Revenge is coming back! Thank you, ABC!

  • RenewGCB

    Renew GCB

  • alexjones

    about stinkin time!

  • Max

    Yo, ABC…

    Now that you renewed your little “hit” that is anything but a hit in REVENGE, you can go ahead and renew the little engine that could that is SCANDAL. Thanks.

  • Dave

    Predicting it. Cancel The Middle and renew happy endings

  • Bunny


    but TVline was wrong 2 months ago when they reported that ABC was set to announce early renewals how can he be right this time???

  • SJ


    I’d bet on Ausiello, but Variety has also been reporting that BOP and Scandal are likely to be renewed. However, the latest Variety article grouped Missing with the shows that could still be renewed, so they lost a bit of credibility there… Honestly, with PP, BOP, GCB and Scandal, any renewal/cancellation combination would not surprise me. The only thing that would shock me is if all four are canceled. I think at least three, possibly all four are going to be renewed. It looks like ABC’s drama development has been rather weak this year.

  • Dave

    lol my bad. I mean cancel apartment 23, renew happy endings.

    Variety (not spoilertv, which must’ve posted based on Variety’s story) wrote that it is hearing likely renewal for BOP and SCANDAL hours ago. Whether that’s right or wrong, we’ll probably know by tomorrow night.

  • Josh

    So happy for Revenge! It’s my favorite show on the air right now.
