20HURT: SEASON 7 WITHOUT MOST OF THE CAST
In May of 2017, showrunners Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis confirmed season 7 of Once Upon a Time, despite the fact that a significant part of the show’s cast had decided to leave the series on season 6.
To name a few, Jennifer Morrison (Emma Swan), Jared S. Gilmore (Henry Mills), Ginnifer
Goodwin (Snow White), Josh Dallas (Prince Charming), Rebecca Mader (Wicked Witch Zelena), and Emilie de Ravin (Belle) all decided to depart.
It was a strange decision from ABC and the Once Upon a Time showrunners to greenlight another season of the show despite the fact that a huge part of its main cast had expressed their desire to leave. Instead, the show could have synchronized its length with the availability of its cast, which would have given the series a proper ending.
