Where will Once Upon a Time go after it leaves Netflix?
All seven seasons of Once Upon a Time are leaving Netflix. Where will the show go to stream after this and when?
With the list of Netflix arrivals came the list of Netflix exits. Once Upon a Time is leaving Netflix in September, and it’s left us wondering where it will go next. After all, there’s no way this ABC show won’t head somewhere to stream in the future.
Once Upon a Time has been a staple on Netflix, with seasons heading there a month or so after the finale aired on ABC. With the show coming to an end in 2018, we knew eventually it would leave the streaming service. We just didn’t want to think of it.
But it won’t remain off a streamer, right? Once Upon a Time is a popular show to binge-watch, especially the first six seasons. ABC knows that putting it on another streamer is a good move.

Disney Plus or Hulu are the likely choices
Since Disney owns ABC, it only makes sense that the show will head to a fellow Disney-owned service. We’re looking at Disney Plus or Hulu.
Which one would make the most sense?
Once Upon a Time is a show involving fairy tales. Putting it on Disney Plus where all the traditional Disney movies are would make sense. We’d get to see the Disney fairy tales we know and compare them to the Once Upon a Time stories side by side.
However, it could be viewed a little too mature at times for Disney Plus. That show is aimed at families. I’d say the magical series would work well for most families (my children have seen the season involving Anna and Elsa from Frozen and then Peter Pan’s story), but it will be what Disney believes.
We could see the show head to Hulu instead. This is where a lot of ABC shows are heading.
We’ll keep an eye on the Hulu and Disney Plus listings to see where Once Upon a Time is heading in the future.
