Ginnifer Goodwin, Josh Dallas, & More Confirmed to Leave 'Once Upon a Time'

It’s official – Ginnifer Goodwin (Snow Whiteand Josh Dallas (Prince Charming) will be leaving Once Upon a Time after the current sixth season.

Other cast members that have been confirmed to leave the show include Emilie de Ravin (Belle) and Jared Gilmore (Henry), along with the already announced Jennifer Morrison (Emma) and Rebecca Mader (Zelena).

Once Upon a Time‘s seventh season will serve as a reboot to the series and only three cast members have been confirmed to return so far – Lana Parilla (Regina), Robert Carlyle (Mr. Gold), and Colin O’Donoghue (Captain Hook).

Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz, the co-creators and executive producers of the beloved ABC series, have released a statement regarding the departure of these cast members.

Statement from Once Upon a Time Co-Creators

Words can’t do justice to what Ginny, Josh, Emilie, Rebecca and Jared brought to ONCE UPON A TIME… but we’ll try… never have we had the privilege of working with a more talented group of collaborators. Each brought unique talent, incredible intelligence, and their own individual bit of magic as they gave life to these iconic characters.

Ginny reinvented Snow White for a modern audience – there was no way she would be stuck cleaning up after dwarfs, she created an iconic empowered heroine for the 21st century.

Josh mined the depths of Prince Charming – a character who in myth was just a “type” but in his superlative interpretation became a complex man fighting for love and family.

Emilie took the character of Belle to a deep and soulful place, bringing great intelligence and warmth to the character, making her fiercely independent, strong willed but also an eternal optimist who saw only the best in all those she encountered.

Rebecca took us on a broomstick roller coaster ride as she re-invented the Wicked Witch of the West by finding the pain beneath the green. She made the character soar to incredible heights while always keeping her grounded and relatable.

And Jared literally grew up before the eyes of millions, from a child actor with enormous innate talent to a young man whose abilities continue to astound as he created a character who truly, as we say on the show, has the heart of the truest believer.

We can’t thank them enough for the hard work, dedication, and passion they delivered day in and day out. Without them there would be no ONCE UPON A TIME.

As ONCE continues, this group will always be the beating heart of the show. And even though we won’t be with them every week, in a show about magic and hope, we fervently believe it won’t be the last we see of them. “

    This always happens before a series is cancelled. The actors demand too much pay compared the low ratings so don’t get their contracts renewed by the network.

  • Madsxx

    Just let the show end on a high note. This is going to hurt the series, and it will end up getting cancelled anyways.

  • Casey C

    this will be the last season. its basically a spinoff at tis point

  • Visitor

    I think they should’ve focused on new characters every season and kept the show fresh. Gold and Regina and the only ones I enjoyed, got bored with everyone else into the second season.

  • Flor

    Oh man just when I wanted to rewatch this show after I abandoned it in the middle of season 3. They should have just ended the show with season 6 if they didn’t have enough money to pay the actors. This is not a CW show, you can’t keep a show alive even when the ratings keep decreasing, you’ll end up messing everything up sigh
