NBC Renews Grimm For Season 2!

Grimm is an American police procedural fantasy drama for television described as “a cop drama—with a twist… It is a dark and fantastical project about a world in which characters inspired by Grimms’ Fairy Tales “existed”. If you’re a fan, here’s what we’ve rounded up about the bright future of Grimm season 2:

The series which stars David Giuntoli as Detective Nick Burkhardt premiered on NBC with 2.1 in the 18-49 demographic with 6.56 million total viewers, emerging as the first on the timeslot. The pilot episode received mixed reviews, based on Metacritic‘s index score of 55 out of 100. Furthermore, Mary McNamara of the Los Angeles Times wrote that she preferred another fairy-tale themed drama, ABC’s Once Upon a Time, stating that despite a good cast and setting, Grimm puts an “entertaining crime spin on fairy-tale monsters that’s a little too pat” for viewers.

Despite the mixed reviews, Grimm impressed the Nielsen ratings board by charting around first up to third rank on the timeslot until the recent episode which aired on May 4. TV by the numbers further claimed that “The debut of Grimm outperformed most other NBC shows which have the advantage of airing on better nights.”

To cut to the chase, the numbers performed by the show opened a window for a bright future. On March 16, TV Line was first to share that NBC had officially announced that Grimm is renewed for another season. “The Friday drama has been a rare bright spot this season for NBC, which has seen nearly all of its rookie dramas — The Playboy Club, The Firm, Free Agents and Prime Suspect — quickly crash and burn.” — Michael Ausiello from TV Line further noted.

Looking at the facts, I can say no more but a hefty Congratulations to all fans of Grimm! Catch the first season finale entitled “Woman in Black” on May 18, Friday on NBC.

    I’m sure my viewing habits of Grimm helped to throw these numbers off a little. I was still job hunting after Grimm started, so I was stuck at home Friday nights with nothing better to do. A couple of months ago I finally landed a job with Dish working the graveyard shift. So while I was no longer able to be home to continue watching Grimm (which has become one of my favorite shows) I did get a Hopper so that it would automatically record Grimm and the other three major networks during primetime. It’s worked like a charm, and a new episode of Grimm was always waiting for me each week. For the finale, I chose to watch it commercial-free and I loved it! I was able to get into the story and I think that I was able to pay more attention to the various cliffhangers because of the lack of commercials. I’m so ready for season 2!
