Fantasy TV show Once Upon A Time is all set to bid farewell with its current seventh season.

It is curtains for the ABC fairy tale mash-up after the end of the season six was given an intense reboot, but failed to catch the audiences' fancy as it had all series regulars, except three who were released from their contracts, E! News reported.

ONCE UPON A TIME - "Mother's Little Helper" - Gold and Belle convince Emma to help Gideon, explaining that together they can stop the Black Fairy. Henry experiences a disorienting shift in his powers that forces Regina to seek counsel from the previous Author. Meanwhile, in Fairy Tale Land, Hook attempts to win the assistance of an old adversary by betting his most prized possession on a game of cards. And, in a flashback, the Black Fairy tortures young Gideon in hopes of molding him into the perfect apprentice, on "Once Upon a Time," SUNDAY, APRIL 9 (8:00-9:00 p.m. EDT), on The ABC Television Network.

"Seven years ago, we set out to create a show about hope, where even in the darkest of times, a happy ending would always be possible. But we never imagined the happy ending that was actually in store for all of us — years and years of adventure, romance, magic and hope.

"We're so grateful to our brilliant collaborators the cast, crew, and writers — as well as our partners at the studio and network for making this journey possible.

But most of all, we want to thank the fans. Their fierce loyalty and devotion was the real magic behind. We hope they join us for these last few hours as we journey to the Enchanted Forrest for one more adventure," co-creators Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis said in a statement.

The second half of Once Upon a Time returns for its final season on 2 March.
