Special Episode Of Grimm To Air Following Mockingbird Lane Pilot Later This Month

In addition to confirming their plans to air the pilot episode the Munsters reboot Mockingbird Lane, NBC has also released information about a special episode of Grimm set to air the same night, which will also be broadcast that night on Telemundo and Mun2.

NBC made the announcement today that Grimm will join with Telemundo, mun2 and Universal Studios Hollywood's Halloween Horror Nights" in what they're calling a "cross-divisional event." Grimm's "La Llorana" episode will air Friday, October 26 (and technically 10/27). It'll air in its usually 9:00 p.m. time slot at NBC, and then the Spanish broadcast will air on Telemundo at 12:00 a.m. ET Friday night. It will also air in English on mun2 at 1:00 a.m. ET on Friday night.

Grimm regularly features various storybook baddies and mythical monsters in some form or another, as the lead character Nick Burkhardt explores his destiny as a Grimm, a person called to protect the human race against these disguised threats. "La Llorona" refers to a piece of Latin American folklore about "The Weeping Woman," the ghost of a distraught mother who drowned her children and herself and is now doomed to haunt and terrorize the living. The October 26th episode will have Nick and his detective partner Hank tracking down La Lliorona after she abducts some of Portland's kids on Halloween.

Kate del Castillo (Telemundo's miniseries La Reina del Sur) is set to guest-star as Valentina Espinosa, "a mysterious detective from New Mexico on an obsessive mission to uncover the truth behind the bizarre disappearances and joins forces with Burkhardt and Griffin to intervene before it’s too late." So it sounds like Nick and Hank will have some help on this one. Unless the "mysterious" part is a hint that there's something dangerous about her.

On a related note, as we mentioned earlier, NBC's also set to air the Mockingbird Lane pilot, which could be an indication that the rumors that the network is passing on the costly Munsters reboot. More information on that here.
