Grimm (NBC 2011- , David Giuntoli, Silas Weir Mitchell)

Grimm is a fantasy drama series inspired by the classic Grimm’s Fairy Tales. Remember the fairy tales your parents used to tell you before bedtime? Those weren’t stories — they were warnings. Nick Burkhardt (David Guintoli ‘Turn The Beat Around’) thought he prepared himself for the realities of working as a homicide detective until he started seeing things he couldn’t quite explain. When his ailing Aunt Marie arrives, Nick’s life turns upside down when she reveals they are descendants of an elite group of hunters, also known as ‘Grimms,’ who fight to keep the balance of humanity safe from the supernatural creatures of the world. As Nick digs deeper into her past, he realizes that he will have to shoulder the responsibility of his ancestors — and contend with a larger-than-life mythology of the Brothers Grimm that is now all too real.

From NBC’s press release, August 2016… Closing out an incredibly successful series run and giving viewers a chance to say goodbye over the last 13 episodes, the sixth and final season of NBC’s drama ‘Grimm’ will begin its last chapter with the battle fans have long been waiting for – Nick versus Capt. Renard. The series, which reached the 100-episode milestone last season, has long been a fan and critical favorite, with the Los Angeles Times calling it ‘terrific and trendsetting… ‘Grimm’ has become a beacon of solid narrative and a weekly reminder of why monsters matter.’ The New York Times said ‘Grimm’ is ‘engaging, clever, tense, funny and well-paced, featuring a remarkably appealing cast.’ 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. ‘Grimm’ also stars Russell Hornsby and Reggie Lee.
