Jennifer Morrison announced that Emma Swan’s journey will be coming to a close at the end of season 6 of Once Upon a Time.
Jennifer Morrison announced this morning that “The Final Battle” will be Emma’s swan song for Once Upon a Time. The ending will be poetic for this character. The savior checking out at the end of the fated battle.
Morrison took to social media to break the news of her departure:
As I reached the end of my 6 year contract on ONCE UPON A TIME, I was faced with a significant decision. ABC, Eddy Kitsis, and Adam Horowitz very generously invited me to continue as a series regular. After very careful consideration, I have decided that creatively and personally, it is time for me to move on.
Emma Swan is one my favorite characters that I have ever played. My 6 years on ONCE UPON A TIME has changed my life in the most beautiful ways. I am absolutely blown away by the passion and commitment of the Oncer fans. I am so honored to have been a central part of such a special show.
I will be forever grateful to Adam, Eddy, and ABC for giving me the gift of playing Emma Swan.
As I move on to other creative endeavors, I will continue to attend the fan conventions whenever my professional schedule allows. I always look forward meeting the fans.
If ABC Network does in fact order a season 7, I have agreed to appear in one episode, and I will most certainly continue to watch ONCE UPON A TIME. The creativity of the show runners has always inspired me, and I cannot wait to see the ways that they continue to develop and reinvent the show.
ABC will be announcing the fate of this show within the next week. One thing for sure, is Once Upon a Time will be a whole new ball game without series original Emma Swan. We will miss her.
Morrison’s recent endeavors include a step into the director’s shoes. Morrison directed a number of original films in the past year. We’re looking forward to where the road leads her next.
Stay tuned as we find out about the fate of Once Upon a Time. Will you miss Emma? What are some of your favorite memories of Emma Swan?
