The “Grimm” Season 5 finale left fans with quite the cliffhanger, with Nick Burkhardt (David Giuntoli) and his friends running for their lives.
But when "Grimm" returns for Season 6, Giuntoli said there won’t be a time jump, and 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.”
One character who will definitely be missed next season is Meisner, who is played by Damien Puckler.
Greenwalt and Kouf said they were so busy with the show that they forgot to inform Puckler that his character was going to get killed off.
“We were so busy writing the last two that we didn’t realize when he got the script,” confessed Kouf.
Greenwalt added, “He got it before we thought he was gonna get it. He’s a tremendous guy. For one thing, he does all his own stunts. You hear people claim that, but he actually does it… He took it really well. We don’t know how, but we would hope that he’s not gone forever. But these things have to happen.”
Whatever happens next season, Greenwalt and Kouf have to do it in a more condensed manner. Deadline reported that the show has been given only 13 episodes for Season 6, as opposed to the 22 it is used to.
“Grimm” Season 6 will hit NBC on Oct. 28.
