I have to confess that although I have been watching ‘Grimm’ for the last five years. I never took to it right away and certainly did not expect it to last as long as it has.
Which is why it is sad that the show will definitely be ending after the forthcoming sixth season.
NBC crushed a million hearts on Monday (August 29) by confirming that Grimm’s sixth season will be its last.
Thankfully will not be immediate. The last season of the show will now be premiering on NBC on January 6 in the US. Though their is not yet a confirmed date for when the series will continue in the UK on W.
For the final episodes, Nick (David Giuntoli) will make one final stand as Portland’s new mayor Renard (Sasha Roiz) cracks the iron fist over any opposition.
“It will take the full force of Nick and his allies to find a way to bring the peace,” NBC hinted in a press release.
Back in April, NBC officially ordered a 22-episode sixth season of the low-rated cult favourite.
In a sign of bad news to come, the network then quickly slashed Grimm’s episode order all the way down to 13. At this point the writing really was on the wall for the series.
So sadly toward the spring of 2017. We’ll all be having to bid a farewell to Nick Berkhardt, Hank Griffin and Munro and the gang and find another TV family to get behind.
The series will be missed by the fans that watched it. It really did have an interesting group of characters and I for one loved it when Nick’s longtime girlfriend Juliette broke bad in the fourth season, which concluded in her killing Nick’s mother.
Sadly though. The slow building pace of the 5th season was a signal that the end was near for me. It all seemed a little disappointing after what was a brilliant season arc in the shows fourth year.
