Great news for us Grimmsters. NBC has given an early renewal to Grimm for Season 5. The network has also renewed dramas The Blacklist (for Season 3), Chicago Fire (for Season 4), its spinoff Chicago P.D. (for Season 3), and Law & Order: Special Victims Unit (for Season 17).
Congratulations to the cast, crew and the whole creative team behind Grimm for this incredible news and all the hard work you do to make this show be as great as it is. We are so excited for season 5.
A Friday night success story, “Grimm” has averaged a 2.1 rating, 7 share in adults 18-49 and 7.2 million viewers overall so far this season, making it Friday’s #1 scripted series in 18-49 on the Big 4 networks. “Grimm” is one of the most time-shifted shows on broadcast television, with its originals growing by an average of +83% going from “live plus same day” Nielsens to “live plus seven day.”
“Grimm” is inspired by the classic Grimm Brothers’ fairy tales. The series stars David Giuntoli as Portland homicide detective Nick Burkhardt, who discovers he’s descended from an elite line of criminal profilers known as Grimms and increasingly finds his responsibilities as a detective at odds with his new responsibilities as a Grimm.
The series, from Universal Television and Hazy Mills Productions, also stars Russell Hornsby, Bitsie Tulloch, Silas Weir Mitchell, Reggie Lee, Sasha Roiz, Bree Turner and Claire Coffee.
