Grimm season 2 TV NBC Orders Grimm Season 2

While Grimm may be the series’ title, its future is anything but, as NBC has announced they have renewed Grimm for a second season. Consisting of a full 22-episode order, Grimm’s renewal marks the first of several early pickups for existing series on NBC this fall.

Making its debut in October, 2011, Grimm stars David Giuntoli, as Portland homicide detective Nick Burkhardt, who discovers that he’s part of a long line of monster hunters known as “Grimms.” Along with his wolf-man friend Monroe (Silas Weir Mitchell), Nick uses his powers to investigate crimes committed by mythological creatures that have the ability to disguise themselves as regular people.

While the official word of the renewal came down from NBC last Friday, fans of the show received the good news directly from some of the excited cast via Twitter:

Co-star Russell Hornsby, who plays Burkhardt’s police partner, tweeted “Grimmsters… 2nd season, it’s official! Yes! More Grimm fairy tales to come. Thanks for your support!”

Reggie Lee, who plays Sergeant Wu, posts: “@NBCGrimm renewed for a 2nd season! WU huuuuuu!!!! #Grimmsters and #grimmlins u do us proud!!! Thx for the support!!!!”

Grimm has turned out to be quite the bright spot for NBC, blossoming to a solid 5.4 million viewers overall, plus a boost when DVR recorded viewing is factored in. With the swift cancellations of The Playboy Club, The Firm and other freshman series, Grimm has done well for the network in its Friday timeslot.

With Spring upon us, it’s getting close to one of the most exciting times for TV folks—May Upfronts! Until the official presentation of the networks’ new line-ups, word on the fate of current shows, as well as new TV pilots, will be trickling in. Patient fans get to be put out of their misery; either their favorite shows will see another season, or they’ll have to deal with the loss of a cancellation. Either way, at least they’ll know. On the flip side, May upfronts also gets fans pumped with anticipation for new series they can expect this fall.

  1. This just made my whole day!!! Fantastic news!!!

  2. I agree! It’s not talked about a lot, but Grimm is a great show.

  3. Ok Grimm is a go…

    Next up for renewal please:

    • yes supernatural and ringer need to be renewed.
      Grimm is awesome , good job nbc making a great show.

      • amazing series.. the grimm :)

  4. I actually got really hooked on this show.
    It’s had a few so-so episodes, but has been generally pretty solid.

    Glad it was renewed.

    Now, renew “Once Upon a Time” (I know, not the same network)… that is some of the smartest writing on TV this season.

  5. Oh dear gosh, WHY?
    This show bores me to tears.
    Josh Whedon series seem to get pulled before they get going, but this POS tv series gets a go ahead?
    The Gods must be laughing.

    • Yeah, I know the feeling. After Firefly, ever other show, even the ones I used to enjoy, seemed a little duller. Man, I’m really bummed now… I’m gonna rewatch the whole series agsin!

      • While I love my Joss Whedon fandom, and it is a shame that other less fun shows get the go-ahead while his best shows seem got canceled before they could be fully realized, I have to admit, I do enjoy Grimm.

        We have to bear in mind that in Firefly’s case, Space Westerns are kind of a lost niche, where as Grimm plays heavily on it’s cop drama and it’s basis in legends that some believe may have been true at one point.

        I’ll be honest and say i’m glad that Grimm got an early renewal.

    • *again

      oh, and btw, it’s Joss.

  6. We have Grimm here in Australia and absolutely love it! Thrilled to hear it will be back for a second season!
