"Once Upon a Time" Season 6 is on a bubble, as the ABC drama is nearing its two-part finale, but the network still has not renewed the show.

"Once Upon a Time" Season 6 cancellation news reveals that the show is unlikely going to be renewed for a seventh season on ABC. As Deadline reports, star Jennifer Morrison, who plays the lead role of Emma Swan, has already announced her exit from the show via a post on Instagram.

Many fans were truly disheartened by the news of Morrison's exit, especially because she has always been the center of "OUAT." This led many fans to speculate that "Once Upon a Time" Season 6 cancellation is more likely to happen with Morrison's exit and the continuous drop in ratings.

However, it is still possible that "Once Upon a Time" Season 6 renewal may happen since ABC Entertainment president Channing Dungey previously explained that the show may still undergo a reboot. This means that only several characters will remain in the seventh season such as Lana Parilla (Regina), Robert Carlyle (Mr. Gold) and Colin O'Donoghue (Hook).

The Hollywood Reporter notes that in case "Once Upon a Time" Season 6 cancellation happens, series creators Adam Horowitz and Eddy Kitsis promise to give fans a satisfying finale. The showrunners teased that there will be big curse ahead with "a little twist."

"Once Upon a Time" Season 6 finale spoilers will also feature a "Final Battle" and curse "all tied in one," said the showrunners. Hopefully, the "OUAT" finale will tie up all loose ends in the ABC drama.
