LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- “Grimm” will be back.
The NBC fairytale-inspired cop show has been renewed for a second season, NBC confirmed to Access Hollywood on Friday.
Starring David Giuntoli and Russell Hornsby as detectives Nick Burkardt and Hank Griffin, and Silas Weir-Mitchell as Eddie Monroe (a “blutbat” aka the big, not-so-bad wolf), the show has managed to find an audience on Friday nights at 9/8c on the network.
“This is a cop show and its small twist is that my perpetrators now can often be monsters,” David, who plays a descendant of the Brothers Grimm, told Access Hollywood last fall. “It’s subtle, but it creates a whole weight to it. It’s kind of beautiful in its simplicity.”
“Grimm” managed to pull in around 5.6 million viewers in early March, per The Hollywood Reporter.
