Claire Coffee, who plays Adalind Schade in the NBC show “Grimm,” cannot wait for fans to see their final season next year. With only 13 episodes in this season, Coffee said “Grimm” fans will be treated to one explosive episode after another.
“Alliances are shifting, for sure. I think the beginning of the season is incredibly intense. Usually we take a season to work toward the insanity and that level of tension, but we’re starting with it this season. It’s not letting up. There’s not a lot of breathing room so far,” Coffee told Showbiz Junkies.
When the series first started, Coffee admitted that she did not think her character would play such a pivotal part. She is grateful Adalind has now become a part of the Scooby Gang, but if there’s anything else Coffee hopes for her character, then it would be for her to make it through the series without losing her life.
“You know, I would prefer her to stay alive. I would prefer to end the series alive. That would be my preference. Anything beyond that is just icing on the cake,” she said.
Meanwhile, Nick Burkhardt (David Giuntoli) said there won’t be a time jump when the new season opens, so fans will see what next steps Nick and the Scooby Gang will take to survive.
“It picks up the millisecond we left off; the micro-moment. We're all on the run,” Giuntoli told EnStarz. “[Sean] Renard has the power right now so we're definitely a band on the run. We can't hang out in our normal haunts, either. We can't go to the precinct, we can't go to the loft, and we can't go to Monroe and Rosalee's place. We spend a lot of time in the rabbit warren, which are the tunnels.”
Series co-creators and executive producers David Greenwalt and James Kouf earlier told TV Line that they can’t afford to skip any parts because “there are too many unanswered moments to jump ahead.”
“Grimm” Season 6 will hit NBC on Jan. 6, 2017.
