'Once Upon A Time' Renewed For Season 3

ABC has renewed its fairytale drama series, 'Once Upon a Time' starring Ginnifer Goodwin and Jennifer Morrison for a third season.

The second season premiered to nearly 12 million viewers which is great for a drama series on ABC. However, the series has been hovering around the seven million mark for the entire season. The first half of the season did well but once 2013 started ABC really messed with the momentum of the heavily serialized drama by putting it on long hiatuses and airing it against the Academy Awards and the Grammys. 

Here is a list of the last-five aired episodes:
17 - Welcome to Storybrooke - March 17 - 7.45 million viewers
18 - Selfless, Brave and True - March 24 - 7.38 million viewers
19 - Lacey - April 21 - 7.37 million viewers
20 - The Evil Queen - April 28 - 7.16 million viewers
21 - Second Star to the Right - May 5 - 7.50 million viewers

No word on how many episodes have been ordered but the usual 22 seems accurate. The season finale will air tomorrow night.
