Considering the formula for Grimm, it's perhaps no surprise the show has been a success. The plot enhances the staple cop drama formula with a healthy dose of intrigue on top, in the form of mystical elements deriving from classic Grimms' Fairy Tales.
Since its premiere back in 2011, there have been 103 thrilling episodes across five seasons. It's perhaps no surprise then that it has been announced NBC are more than happy to extend the show's run into its sixth season.
'A Truly Devoted Fan Base'
NBC's Jennifer Salke told Deadline of the network's decision to give fans more. She said:
“We absolutely love what our producers and cast have accomplished over the past five seasons. They have created a whole new world of creatures and have a truly devoted fan base. We can’t wait to see what comes next.”
Although the show was understated when it was first broadcast, reaching a six year stretch is extremely admirable. And ratings do consistently well, averaging 6.4 million viewers in the most recent season.
The show centers around Nick Burkhardt (David Giuntoli) who works for the Portland Police Department. Upon discovering he is a descendant of a family of Grimms, he is then given the task of managing the mystical and the real world. No pressure.
For now, Season 5 is still airing, with episode 16 being broadcast on April 8th, running up until episode 22 on May 20th.
