Jennifer Morrison Is Leaving 'Once Upon a Time' - Read Her Letter to Fans

Jennifer Morrison has announced that she will be leaving her beloved ABC series Once Upon a Time after the end of the current sixth season.

The 38-year-old actress has decided not to renew her contract, which is up at the end of the season. If the show gets a seventh season, she has agreed to appear in one episode to help wrap her character Emma Swan’s storyline.

Jennifer took to Instagram on Monday morning (May 8) to announce the news in a letter to fans.

“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,” Jennifer started the note.

“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,” Jennifer continued.

“I will be forever grateful to Adam, Eddy, and ABC for giving me the gift of playing Emma Swan,” she added. “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,” Jennifer concluded.
