NBC has announced sad news for “Grimm” fans — the show will be taking its final bow next season.
NBC has confirmed on Monday that the show will no longer continue after Season 6, according to Variety.
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 used to for the past five seasons. It will feature a huge showdown between Nick Burkhardt (David Giuntoli) and Capt. Sean Renard (Sasha Roiz).
Renard is currently in power as he is now the mayor elect of Portland. Nick must do everything he can to protect the city and those he holds dear — especially his child with Adelind (Claire Coffee).
Meanwhile, Monroe (Silas Weir Mitchell) and Rosalee (Bree Turner) are also worried about bringing a child into this troublesome world, while Eve (Bitsie Tulloch) is dealing with an identity crisis.
Giuntoli earlier said that exciting things are in store for Season 6, especially since Nick and the Scooby Gang have nowhere else to go.
“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.”
As for series co-creators and executive producers David Greenwalt and James Kouf, they previously told TV Line that they can’t afford to skip any parts after the Season 5 finale because “there are too many unanswered moments to jump ahead.”
“Grimm” Season 6 will hit NBC on Jan. 6, 2017.
