It was just this August when “Grimm” fans received sad news from NBC: The fantasy series will be taking its final bow after Season 6, and there will be no next season for the show.
The “final season” will begin on Jan. 6, 2017 and will consist of only 13 episodes as opposed to the 22 the show has been airing for the past five seasons, according to Variety. It will feature a huge showdown between Nick Burkhardt (David Giuntoli) and Capt. Sean Renard (Sasha Roiz).
In order to help save the show, a fan named Rebekka Hay from Wales, United Kingdom has started an online petition asking Netflix to pick up the show after Season 6.
“The majority of the fans feel that the story cannot end yet, that there is so much more potential and that it would be a wasted opportunity,” she wrote in the petition. “Many fans feared this was coming, as NBC changed the weekly air date to the infamous Friday night death slot. They do that often if they want to justify cancelling a show due to ‘poor ratings,’ and hardly any show survives after a season on this slot, so a season 6 is a already win.”
The petition, which requires 5,000 signatures, already obtained support from more than 4,000 signatories, “so Netflix can see the wonderful support that this show has from fans and hopefully consider continuing the show.”
Meanwhile, another fan created an online petition hoping TNT would pick up “Grimm” after its NBC cancellation. It only needs 200 supporters, but has only garnered 63 supporters.
“Because ‘Grimm’ is the best show in the universe. It has hundreds of millions fans all around the world. ‘Grimm’ deserves at least 10 seasons,” the petition reads.
“Grimm” Season 6 will hit NBC on Jan. 6, 2017.
