Goodbye Emma Swan, Morrison Will Not Return for ‘Once Upon a Time’ S7

Swan is taking a Swan Song…

…Yea, that make sense.

Following the musical and magical wedding of Emma Charming-Swan and Captain Hook, Once Upon a Time star, Jennifer Morrison announced via social media that *if the show even gets picked up for a seventh season* Morrison and Swan will not be returning…

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. #Onceuponatime #EmmaSwan #UglyDucklings

Morrison does confirm that she will return for one episode next season, yet again if the series is picked up, and it will most likely be the premiere. As mentioned the announcement come hours after the happy wedding and days before the season six two-hour finale with will “reset” the story. Series co-creators Adam Horowitz and Eddy Kitsis had this to say about the finale:

We planned this finale from the beginning of the year, so whoever stays and whoever goes… all those questions have already been dealt with. The audience does not have to fear [anything feeling] incomplete.

Horowitz and Kitsis also had nothing but nice things to say about Morrison who will be greatly missed from the series if show continues:

The past six years of collaborating with Jennifer as Emma Swan have been truly magical. Watching her breathe life into Emma, she accomplished more than we could have dreamed possible – she gave life to a brand-new Disney Princess, filled with strength and intelligence and an incredible closet full of red leather jackets.

We’ll miss seeing her every day, but her imprint upon Once Upon a Time is indelible. She will always be a part of the show and its heart and soul.

[J]ust because Jennifer won’t be back every week doesn’t mean we won’t see our Savior again

Though Morrison said she does not want to be the reason the show ends I think maybe we all should take a beat a realize what the show would be like without Emma. Sure their could be one more season but is it worth it? Sometimes you just have to close the book and enjoy the ending that was given to you.

It is time for Emma Swan to finally have her life and everyone else in Storybrooke.

So do you think Once should continue after Emma?

The season six finale of Once Upon a Time airs this Sunday at 8pm on ABC.
