Hexenbiests and Blutbaden and Grimms, oh my! Renewed in February 2015, NBC‘s Grimm returns for a fifth season, Friday, October 30, 2015 at 9:00pm ET/PT; 8:00pm Central. Fans believed in this supernatural procedural from the start. At first though, NBC was so cautious with it, that Grimm always seemed in danger of being cancelled. Grimm is one of those series which has defied conventional wisdom. When stuck in the Friday night death slot, Grimm refused to give up the ghost. Ratings-wise, it is on Fridays where Grimm has held its own. Grimm‘s season four ratings averaged a 1.15 in the all-important 18-49 demo.
It is fitting that Grimm has flown under the radar into season five. Star David Giuntoli’s Nick Burkhardt has spent four seasons trying to do the same. While Nick is employed as a homicide detective, his true vocation is that of a Grimm. A Grimm is a human with the strength and skill to keep in check the Wesen — real-world creatures documented in the Brothers Grimm’s fairytales (and other folklore). While being a Grimm complicates Nick’s professional life, his job often enables him to fulfill his Grimm duties. In addition to Giuntoli, the Grimm cast through the years includes: Russell Hornsby, Bitsie Tulloch, Silas Weir Mitchell, Reggie Lee, Sasha Roiz, Bree Turner, Claire Coffee, and Jacqueline Toboni. Below, please enjoy a pair of season two previews, in anticipation of Grimm‘s season five premiere.
