After seven years, 156 episodes and countless twists on beloved fairy tale characters, the show will reach its conclusion in May, but fans who are hoping to get answers to the burning questions they’ve been asking for years should be prepared. “It’s less about tying up every loose end, it’s [more] about the feeling, and that’s what we’re really striving for, which is the feeling of Once Upon a Time,” executive producer Adam Horowitz says.
Executive producer Edward Kitsis concurs, noting that the final run of episodes are more of a celebration of what everyone loves about the show. “It’s one last adventure,” Kitsis says. “It’s maybe seeing some old friends. It’s saying goodbye to the show and being reminded of all the things we love — if it was the twist on fairy tales, if it was the romance, if it was the swashbuckling, or if it was the magic. The last two hours for us is less about tying it up in a bow and just getting to hear the song sung one more time.” (And no, that doesn’t mean there will be another musical episode before the finale.)
