Once Upon a Time has held up well on Sundays, easily winning its timeslot most weeks. After experiencing big drops last season, the show has stabilized this year. In a time when most shows are suffering major drops, stability is the new up. It will be the fourth season for Once Upon a Time.
Despite massive losses after a big debut, the renewal for Resurrection is not much of a surprise. ABC has struggled to launch new dramas this season, and Resurrection has remained above a 2.0 demo for its entire season (which was only eight episodes). Thanks to those two factors, a renewal seemed likely.
UPDATE: ABC has also renewed Castle (season seven), Grey’s Anatomy (season eleven), Scandal (season four), and Revenge (season four). Don’t be surprised if this is the final season for declining Revenge.
On the drama side, Agents of Shield and Nashville still have yet to be decided.
UPDATE 2: ABC has also renewed Agents of Shield. In addition to the renewal, Agent Carter has been ordered to series.
FINAL UPDATE: ABC has closed out the night with renewals for freshman comedy The Goldbergs and veteran Modern Family.
