Once Upon a Time was an American fantasy drama television series. It aired seven seasons on ABC, from October 23, 2011, to May 18, 2018. There are two main settings where the action takes place: Storybrooke, Maine's fictional town at the seaside; and a magical world in which fairy tales take place. Emma Swan (Jennifer Morrison), and Henry Mills (10 years old) are the "real-world" characters in the story. Henry discovers that the rest of the town's inhabitants are fairy-tale characters. The audience is shown the backstory and unfolding stories of the people of the town as fairy-tale characters. The seventh and final season of the series takes place in Seattle, Washington in the fictional neighborhood of Hyperion Heights. A new main story is led by Henry (Andrew J.). West) with his wife and their daughter.
