Grimm: Season Two Renewal from NBC

Grimm renewedTo no surprise, NBC’s Friday night TV series Grimm has been renewed for a second season.

The cast and crew were reportedly given the good news today. Richard Hatem, one of the TV show’s writers, announced the news to fans on his Facebook page today. Another writer, Akela Cooper, tweeted, “Walk into the office this morning & our showrunners David Greenwalt & Jim Kouf tell me the good news: #Grimm is picked up 4 a second season!”

Many of NBC’s new series have been a disappointment this season and have either been cancelled or are expected to be — The Playboy Club, The Firm, Free Agents, and Prime Suspect. Grimm has been one of the network’s few bright spots.

Debuting late in the fall season on little-watched Friday nights, Grimm has been outperforming higher-profile shows like Are You There, Chelsea? and 30 Rock.

Out of the 18 scripted programs that have aired this season, Grimm ranks ninth and averages a 1.6 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 5.27 million total viewers. On our NBC ratings report card, after adjusting for the Friday night timeslot, Grimm gets an “A”.

The final and 22nd episode of the current season is set to air on May 18th. NBC has ordered 22 episodes for next season right out of the gate this time.

    Truly delightful series with just the right mix of everything to keep fans waiting anxiously, “with bated breath”, for more. Detective/fantasy/drama/comedy/multiple plots/friendships/romance… Grimm was bit slow at first and 2 dimensional, but has SO definitely picked up the pace in both plot intrigue and great chemistry between the characters. A perfect balance of serious to light-hearted without the tiring angst of some of the other series. Very good call to continue the series. I applaud all who have combined their collective talents in this production!

    I am estatic about Grimm being renewed for another season. I would like to see more on Nick and Hanks relationship and also a turning point for Nick and his fiance’. Other than that…the recipe for the storylines work each episode.

    Love the show, just wish the time slot was not opposite Fringe on Fox… It’s better than Once Upon A Time which appears to me to be more like a soap opera with a cliff hanger every week.
