#OnceUponATime: Jennifer Morrison (Emma Swan) Addresses Her Future on The Show!
With Once Upon a Time's future up in the air, will the original cast be back for a 7th Season? Jennifer Morrison addresses that topic head on with Will Malnati on his podcast The Drop In.
"My contract ends in April on Once Upon a Time," Morrison said, "I don't know what that means. They have picked up the show officially yet, they might, they might, they might not. We are just waiting now to see if the network decides to continue with the show, and if they do continue the show, if they're going to rework it to be something else, or if they're going to invite people to stay. We're just in a holding pattern right now."
At the TCA Press Tour on Tuesday, ABC Chief Channing Dungey expanded on her earlier comments bout the future of Once, explaining that OUAT creators Eddie and Adam are looming st the potential 7th Season as a spring board in a new direction, which doesn't necessarily mean that they're not bringing the cast back. "It's just, how do you kind of hit the reset button in a way that gives you the opportunity to expand the stories that we're telling?" Dungey said.
While Dungey stopped short of revealing whether any actors would exit, she did note, "Whenever there's change, there's always a transition."
The good news is that it sounds like Jennifer may be in it for the foreseeable future. "I have a really fierce loyalty to the show. I am fiercely protective of the character. I feel like so many amazing things have come to my life because of it. It's really made my life better in so many ways. I don't have any interest in abandoning something that is such a special part of my life. But I also know I don't have it in me to do it forever. So it's more about a life decision. I don't even know how to make that life decision I know what ABC even wants."
Once Upon a Time returns March 5th, 2017 at 8/7c on ABC.
