NBC Renews Grimm For Season 2

Tis the season for renewals! As spring approaches, the official word is coming down regarding the fate of primetime comedies, dramas and unscripted TV shows. Just the other day CBS announced renewals for a number of series on their line-up, and today comes word on Grimm and the situation is not looking grim at all. (No apologies for pun usage from me.)

Grimm stars David Giuntoli as Nick Burkhardt, a homicide detective who learns he’s the descendent of a long line of Grimms, people who protect the world against mythological creatures disguised as regular people. The series combines storybook elements with a supernatural twist. But unlike ABC’s Once Upon a Time, which tells a more serialized story using storybook characters, Grimm is more procedural, with Nick and his wolfish friend Monroe (Silas Weir Mitchell) investigating crimes related to the creatures Nick is meant to track down and protect people from.

Deadline shared the news today that Grimm has been picked up for a second season. NBC has given the fantasy/drama/procedural series a 22-episode order, making it the first of what could be several early pick-ups for the network, though no more are expected to be announced today. So we still have time to cross our fingers for Community and hope that NBC sees the ratings boost from last night’s episode as a good sign, and considers bringing it back for another season (and not scheduling it against The Big Bang Theory).
