Grimm is eying a comeback.
Once upon a time, there lived a supernatural television series by the name of GRIMM on NBC.
NBC is returning to the world of Grimm in the near future, but with a twist on the beloved fantasy/mystery series.
As Variety reports, the as-of-yet untitled new show will be based on existing series mythology and "will feature returning fan favorites while also introducing new characters, new dangers and new mysteries".
Writer and executive producer Melissa Glenn will helm the project. I hear no actors are now attached but the idea is for the offshoot to feature some original cast members, regular or recurring. Also along for the ride are two of the three co-creators from the original series, David Greenwalt and Jim Kouf, now serving as consulting producers.
For those of you who've yet to check out the original series, GRIMM centered on a Portland Homicide detective named Nick Burkhardt (David Giuntoli), who after a weird experience learns that he's a Grimm, a guardian of legend sworn to uphold the balance between humanity and the mythological world thought to only exist in fables. Here's hoping that the new show still has some weird and wonderful stories to tell when another chapter of GRIMM arrives.
Grimm was a little engine that could, an under-the-radar show that became a breakout during the 2011-2012 season despite airing on Fridays.
The original Grimm series ran for six seasons across 120 episodes on NBC, ending in March of 2017. The ratings success, combined with a strong global performance, made the decision to move forward with a spinoff a no-brainer for the network. Her series credits also include Leverage, Zoo, Revolution and Beauty and the Beast.
Glenn is repped by ICM and Ziffren Brittenham.
