    I don’t watch TV very often, and find only about 3 series currently airing to be worth watching. As a college student I don’t usually have time to watch this when it airs, but I love getting the chance to find out what happens next in this series on hulu. Please do not discontinue! We want to find out what ever happens to all of the characters we’ve come to know on this series!

    Love it! I work all the time so I have to hook my computer to the tv to watch it. Thats how much we watch it. I have been following this show since the first episode. Please do not cancel it.

    So sad Grimm season finale got bumped due to a dog show — Our whole family was so DISAPPOINTED – every Friday night we get our popcorn, drinks and get ready for the best show on TV. Please do everything you can to renew this program. Thank you

    As other viewers have indicated, I also watch very little tv–due to poor quality of most shows airing currently. However, Even with the Sunday evening Once upon a time, NO fairy tale candle can hold its own light in the darkest recesses of the psychological mind–As GRIMM can! I am all for NBC to hammer out a multi-season “established” contract to keep GRIMM searching for new perspectives on even more future e[isodes–much in the same way that CBS signed contracts to keep The Big Bang Theory show on air, for 3 more seasons–when all the contracts for the actors were renewed at the end of their 4th season. (thus keeping BBT on air for at least 7 years!) I started watching Grimm to see how it compared to OUAT (ABC), and from watching both, I am definitely looking forward in the future to Satisfy my growing GRIMM addiction. In addition, the network execs, and producers should keep in mind, that GRIMM is becoming so much more popular, that The Sy-Fy Channel’s Original reality show, FACE-OFF, actually utilized the GRIMM concept for the contestant/artisians of the program to create and establish Original Monster makeups and backgrounds for why the creature would be hunted by the Grimm (Guiantoli is EXCELLENT casting–by the way!)–as is Silas Mitchell as Monroe). Please, Please keep in mind that Creative Artists and fans of Police procedural dramas are actually Steadfast Fans for many reasons. Grimm should definitely be renewed, RENEWED, RENEWED!!! :) :)

    I look forward to my Friday Grimm fix!!!! It is a must to have a season 3, season 4, season 5…. I guess you can get my point. Grimm must stay on!!!!!! Please don’t think about stealing my Grimm it truly is the best thing on tv. Fight for the right to have GRIMM! :)

    Grimm has brought me back to being interested in watching television. It is well written, well acted, and really gives a detailed focus that few shows, recently, have exemplified.
    We were introduced to Grimm because my son’s fiance landed a brief part in the bee episode. It is my hope that Grimm continues for several years!!!
