The good news is that NBC announced today that Grimm will be back on January 6th. The bad news is they also declared that it will be the show’s final season.
Although the news is not unexpected, because their episode order was cut from the normal 22 down to 13, it is still heartbreaking. It was one of the few Horror shows on Broadcast TV that got better over time. They knew how to perfectly mesh the scare of the week with the mythology. Something most shows only know how to do one or the other in any given episode.
I will try to see the positive in this news, at least they have time to prepare for the end and not leave us with one of their suspenseful cliffhangers like ALF, Soap, Benson or V unfortunately had to do because they were cancelled without any notice.
UPDATE: Here is what we can expect from Grimm’s 6th and final (sniff sniff) season:
As for events leading into the final season, 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.
