After very careful consideration, I have decided that creatively and personally, it is time for me to move on," she wrote on Instagram.

    "Emma Swan is one my favorite characters that I have ever played. My 6 years on Once Upon a Time has changed my life in the most beautiful ways. I am absolutely blown away by the passion and commitment of the Oncer fans. I am so honored to have been a central part of such a special show," she continued.

    "I will be forever grateful to Adam, Eddy, and ABC for giving me the gift of playing Emma Swan. As I move on to other creative endeavors, I will continue to attend the fan conventions whenever my professional schedule allows. I always look forward meeting the fans," Morrison continued on Instagram. "If ABC Network does in fact order a season 7, I have agreed to appear in one episode, and I will most certainly continue to watch 'Once Upon a Time.' The creativity of the showrunners has always inspired me, and I cannot wait to see the ways that they continue to develop and reinvent the show."
