When Grimm first aired on NBC I was hooked, but in the back of my head I couldn’t help but wonder how long this good time would last. I feel like TV has a history of cancelling shows that I love so I was convinced Grimm may not make it to season two. Then season two happened and I started feeling better about the fate of the show, and it kept getting renewed! Seasons later, right when I finally let my guard down, NBC does it to me. Like the scheming verrat they’ve stabbed me through the heart as they decide to cancel one of the most beloved shows on television.…and not just cancel, they shorten the season as well. Thanks for twisting the knife NBC.
Grimm hasn’t been a cash cow for NBC, but the show has an avid core group of followers and I once heard that if you’re not a Grimm fan you just haven’t watched it yet. I wholeheartedly believe that sentiment, everyone I have recommended it to has returned to me a full on Grimmster. The ensemble cast worked so well together and seemed like a family, and the storylines combining investigative cop show with the supernatural made it one of the most unique shows on television. I’ll be honest, though, it’s been a great run. It already started to feel like the series was working towards a conclusion and I’m just happy the network is allowing the storylines to wrap up instead of completely cutting off fans from their favorite characters.
Season 6 will premiere on NBC January 6th at 8pm and here’s what we can expect from the final season from an NBC press release:
The nefarious forces of Black Claw have been silenced and Nick (David Giuntoli) faces an all too familiar foe in Capt. Sean Renard (Sasha Roiz). Now in the seat of power as the mayor elect of Portland, Renard is poised to bring rise to his own brand of law and order. Nick must take a stand to protect his city and those closest to him, especially his child with Adalind (Claire Coffee). It will take the full force of Nick and his allies to find a way to bring the peace. Meanwhile, Monroe (Silas Weir Mitchell) and Rosalee (Bree Turner) grapple with bringing a child into a new and tumultuous world, and Eve (Bitsie Tulloch) faces unsettling identity issues as her former self lurks below the surface.
How do you feel about the shortened season? What are some of your favorite episodes in seasons past? What’s been your favorite Wesen in the series? What character will you miss most? I’ll be shedding a tear for Monroe myself…he just gets me. Let’s discuss our Grimm love in the comments as we prepare to say goodbye to this amazing series.
