NBC Renews GRIMM for Second Season
As first reported on TVLine.com, the NBC network has renewed the freshman drama series GRIMM for a second season. The show has attracted 5.2 million total viewers and a 1.5 demo rating, and has seen an 87 percent increase in viewership among the all-important 18-49 demographic.
GRIMM is inspired by the classic Grimm’s Fairy Tales. The show follows Portland homicide Detective Nick Burkhardt (David Giuntoli, "Turn The Beat Around") as he discovers he is descended from an elite line of criminal profilers known as “Grimms,” charged with keeping balance between humanity and the mythological creatures of the world.
As he tries to hide the dangers of his new found calling from his girlfriend, Juliette Silverton, (Bitsie Tulloch, “quarterlife”), and his partner, Hank Griffin (Russell Hornsby, “Lincoln Heights”), he becomes ever more entrenched in the ancient rivalries and alliances of the Grimm world.
With help from his confidant, Monroe (Silas Weir Mitchell, “Prison Break”), a reformed Grimm creature himself, Nick must navigate through the forces of a larger-than-life mythology, facing off with Hexenbiests, Blutbads and all manner of ancient evils, including royal lines dating back to the original profilers themselves, The Grimm Brothers. Reggie Lee (“Persons Unknown”) and Sasha Roiz (“Caprica”) also star.
