Once Upon A Time Season 6: Musical Special
The talks of incorporating a musical episode has been on for some time. Time and again, cast and crew of the show have been talking about the possibility. Looks like, Once Upon A Time Season 6 will finally see all the talks being put to action.
Back in 2015, during Comic-Con, co-creator Eddy Kitsis said, “It would be great to do a musical episode, [but] I don’t know even know where to begin,” reports TV Line. The idea of a musical suits perfectly to the plot of this drama series. All the fairy tale characters coming in together and crooning some tunes makes for good television.

Is Season 6 The Last in the Series?
There were rumors floating around about the cancellation of the Once Upon A Time series. Speculations began when lead actress Jennifer Morrison spoke about her contract ending. She says, “My contract ends in April on Once Upon a Time, I don’t know what that means. They haven’t picked up the show officially yet — 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 with 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.”
ABC also hasn’t confirmed the return of the drama series. TV Guide reports ABC Chief Channing Dungey did reveal that he met Once Upon a Time showrunners Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz. They discussed the possibility of the seventh season. However, a comment by Dungey which reads, “Whenever there’s change, there’s always transition” set gossip mills running.
Once Upon A Time Season 6 begins on March 5, 2017 on ABC.
