ABC made it official today: Once Upon a Time is coming to an end after its current seventh season. The long-running fairy tale drama will be signing off after 155 episodes, which is an impressive feat for a serialized drama by today's standards.

The move to end the series does not come as a complete surprise, as the show underwent some significant retooling ahead of Season 7, including creative and casting changes as well as move to Fridays from its long-held Sunday night time slot. Considering the show's time on the air, the writing appeared to be on the wall for a conclusion in the near future.

Fans can look forward to Once Upon a Time's final stretch of episodes to return on March 2, with the series finale expected to air in May.
