    I think NBC was going to Cancel this show the first season, but Cable featured it all weekend on SYFY channel. I think it made history on that network, and NBC knew they had a hit. One of the few they have. Cancel? Naw, don’t think so. At least, not yet.
    That Season Finale was disappointing. They showed NICK (Who is very intelligent) chase a Weson Witch Doctor,that he knew SPITS and puts you in a trance. He had no protection, no antidote and chases the Old Guy? It if looks like a duck, smelled and walked …well you know the rest. Very Disappointing…
    I don’t normally watch Primetime because they do cancel shows without giving them a chance…like No Ordinary Family. Primetime is a dangerous place to get hooked on anything. But I think SYFY has GRIMM in its view, Just in case NBC gets really stupid.

    Grimm is by far my favorite show of all time and I am 60 years old. I only wish it was on every day instead of once a week.

  3. MK says

    Is it being renewed. Tuesday’s show voice over said (and I quote): “…the last two shows.” It did NOT say “…of this season.” So now I’m worried.

  4. Kate Fredericks says

    Grimm is one of my favorite shows. Now that Walter in Fringe has retired, I look forward to Monroe’s quirky character every week. TY NBC for giving us another year!

  5. LEE says

    Love this show there has to be a season 3 so many stuff to be explained like the map on the key nick has and where are the other keys are plus who are the other 6 royal families

  6. Korie says

    I really love this show and hope they renew it for a third season!! I hate getting into shows to only have their network cancel them.

  7. Sharon says

    I LOVE this show!!!!!
    Its not your same old- same old, its Great and keeps us coming back for more week after week!

  8. Joy says

    Love the show. There are only a small handful of shows worth watching on network tv and Grimm is one of them. Don’t cancel it!

  9. Michael Cothren says

    Grimm is the ONLY network show I and my family watch. If NBC cancels Grimm, I’.ll happily watch the SCI-FI channel’s first run series and series on HBO (GOT) & EPpIX &SHOWTIME.
    I’m an adult with a brain. I watch NO reality programs or talent contests. Hence, there is a paucity of primetime programing on any of the big 3 for my family
