I know you’ve been a bit worried, Grimmsters (I admit I was a little bit worried, too), but today we got the news we’ve been waiting for: Grimm has been renewed for its sixth season!!! It’s a truly GRIMMTASTIC day!!!
Jennifer Salke, President, NBC Entertainment, made the announcement today:
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.
I completely agree with Jennifer, and I’m sure you do, too!
Add to that, these ratings! This season, “Grimm” originals are averaging a 1.7 rating in adults 18-49 and 6.4 million viewers overall in “live plus seven day” results from Nielsen Media Research. “Grimm” is one of the most time-shifted series on the broadcast networks, growing by an average of +90% in adult 18-49 rating (from a 0.91 to a 1.73) and more than 2.4 million viewers overall (3.9 million to 6.4 million) going from “live plus same day” to “live plus seven day” Nielsens.
I like that they now count the plus seven days. Here’s hoping they’ll also start counting Twitter TV scores, because a lot of us are on every week, live-tweeting about Grimm! So now we know we’ve got more time to find out:
- What is going to happen with Black Claw?
- Where is Diana?
- What does the Stick of the Keys do?
- What’s going to happen with Adalind now that her powers are back?
- What will Renard do with his new political power?
- Will Eve continue to transform?
- Where in the world is Trubel?
- Will Wu turn into a Werewolf, errr Wuwolf?
- Will Rosalee and Monroe face more trials from the Wesen community – and will they consider having a child?
- Will Hank ever get some happiness?
- And last but not least – what will Nick do with all of the ongoing turmoil in his life?
I sure don’t have any answers – yet! – but I’m thrilled we’ve got another season to get more!
CONGRATS to David Giuntoli, Bitsie Tulloch, Russell Hornsby, Silas Weir Mitchell, Bree Turner, Reggie Lee, Sasha Roiz, Claire Coffee, Jacqueline Toboni, Danny Bruno, David Greenwalt, Jim Kouf, Stephen Carpenter, Sean Hayes, Todd Milliner, Norberto Barba, Michael Golamco and all the Grimm writers, plus everyone else working on the show! We love you all!
