On this article, we've rounded-up the facts and discussed the likely chances of the supernatural drama in getting a season 3 renewal. Keep reading for our early prediction --
Grimm currently takes the Friday 9pm berth of NBC and although its timeslot is perceived as a curse on the TV industry, the show seems to be dealing with it well. As a matter of fact, the showrunnners are well aware of the daunting matter. On the TCA Panel last January, executive producers David Greenwalt and Jim Kouf enthused on how they're both satisfied with the show's current time slot. Here are couple of statements released by Deadline:
Greenwalt said he “loves the time slot, it’s the old X-Files time slot” and said fans are managing to find the show. Added Kouf: “I don’t believe in curses so much. If they don’t watch it Friday night, they seem to watch it next Saturday.”
On that note, we took the liberty to probe for more and find out if Grimm fans share the same thoughts with the EP's. Surprisingly, our investigation lead us to believe that followers of the show are on board with the showrunners. Most of them have declared that they enjoyed watching the fantasy procedural on Fridays and believe that it thrives among other TV network shows.
Here are some of their testimonials in Zap2it:
"Hope they leave it on Fri. not much competition from other networks. I love Grimm I would hate to have it moved up against another show I watch."
"Grimm is thriving on Friday because there aren’t many good shows on Friday. If they get moved to another night, they’ll be right up against at least three established series at the same time."
On the side of ratings, the numbers for the supernatural hit have been decent for the past two seasons. The sophomore premiere drew 5.64 million of total viewers and a 2.0 rating with adults 18-49. Week 9 presented a series high, garnering a 33% increase from the previous episode with 6.11 million set of eyeballs.
In conclusion, we predict that Grimm is a 'sure thing' for a season 3 renewal.
