  • So I've been thinking about this for a while, and now i can't stop thinking about it. Season one most likely takes place in 2011 (when ouat first aired). And since Emma was 28 at the time, that means the curse was cast in 1983. But when does it take place now (before the sesason 6 finale time jump)?

    • 4 years later, so in 2015. Season 7 takes place in... well, the future, without spoiling exactly when.

    • Between Oct 2011- sometime in late 2014 or early 2015. However interviews with Adam and Eddy always contradict their own writing, so confusion is understandable.

    • What a good question. From what I can tell the show began in October of 2011 and Season 6 began in the fall of 2015. So 4 years.

    • Most answers are fine in theory; however, a time based on official timeline spots and some obvious clues would say....

      Season 1 (1x01): October 22, 2011 (because it's Emma's birthday)

      Sason 5 (5x05): There are pumpkins...so Fall 2013

      Season 5 (5x21): It's obviously close to Christmas based on the building decorations.

      Season 6 (6x16): January/Febrary 2014 (because Hamilton is close to debut and Adam said it debuts 18 months earlier in Once)

      There's also the fall formal in 6x08, right? Or was it a winter formal? If it was a fall formal, I'd assume the plot point is more reliable than the set dressing, especially since they are filming in a real town so the set dressing could have nothing to do with them.

      Set dressings are really unreliable. Season 5 has to take place during the summer since the school year started in Season 6. Which means Season 6 takes place during the fall, it was even said what season it was in the show.

      It was a fall formal.

      Yeah, there was a fall formal, but ignore the set dressing and stuff from season 5:

      Hamilton is the the only true canonical thing by Adam. Hamilton debuts 18 months earlier (August 2015 on Broadway in our world). So, Season 6 has to be early 2014.

      I mean, just because Hamilton opened 18 months early doesn't mean Isaac saw it right when it came out. It was a fall formal, so it has to be any September-December, and more than likely, it would be of 2015

      True. I don't deny that, but I'm going with "the writers", lol. They give conflicting info as season 5 was 2013 (according to Chambliss's timeline, 5x04 present day was 2 years post-28 year curse). So, I think the writers leaed on it being 2014.

      I don't know, fall of 2014 is fine with me, but it does always weird me out how rapidly Henry went through puberty with how the timeline looks. It works, but it's just a bit weird.
