David Giuntoli is stepping behind the camera for once. TVInsider reports the Grimm star is directing an episode of the NBC series’ final season.
Giuntoli plays Nick Burkhardt on the supernatural drama, which also stars Russell Hornsby, Silas Weir Mitchell, Reggie Lee, Sasha Roiz, Bree Turner, and Claire Coffee.
Speaking to TVInsider, Giuntoli said he had the best time directing for the first time:
Everybody was nervous about me directing because I’m a goofball on the set and don’t have a long attention span. But I was ready. I did a ton of homework. I didn’t want to let anybody down. It was the best time I’ve ever had professionally—without doubt and without exception. If you had put me in an MRI machine, you would have seen my entire brain light up!
The final season of Grimm debuts on January 6th. Giuntoli’s directorial debut airs on January 20th.
The fate of “Grimm” season 7 is yet to be determined as “Grimm” season 6 approaches its last phase. The followers of Nick Burkhardt’s adventures must prepare themselves for the series’ ending because it seems like NBC is letting it go.
While the decision of NBC to cease the renewal of “Grimm” season 7 is disheartening for the fans, all hope is not lost. Reports say that the producers are still on the negotiating phase with the network. Additionally, the performance of “Grimm” season 6 might decide the fate of “Grimm” season 7.
Performance-wise, “Grimm” series fares well with the fans. On its official and verified Facebook page, “Grimm” has more than 2 million followers. The popularity of “Grimm” is undeniable but will its popularity be enough to convince NBC to produce “Grimm” season 7?
As of writing, there is still no positive news pertaining to “Grimm” season 7. Variety reports that NBC has finalized its decision to end its contract by the end of “Grimm” season 6.
The actors of “Grimm” are also mum on the fate of “Grimm” season 7. Instead of talking about “Grimm” season 7, they are more focused on “Grimm” season 6, which is considered to be the tentative finale.
David Guintolli, who seamlessly takes Nick Burkhardt’s character to life, emphasized that “Grimm” season 6 will not be a gloomy, funeral-themed episode. He said that fans can expect “Grimm” season 6 to be a season full of gratitude and good vibes. With his statement, the fans can relax and take it easy knowing that the chances of a main character getting killed is almost out of the picture.
“Grimm” season 6 is scheduled to premiere on Jan. 6, 2017. Since NBC has already announced that it will not be house “Grimm” season 7, the fans are waiting for another network to welcome it.
I am re-posting a comment made to the site with various links to petitions to save our favorite show Grimm! Check out the links below:
Our petition to Netflix to pick up “Grimm” is over 5,800! We still need as many fans as possible to show their support by SIGNING and SHARING the petition! If you don’t want to sign, please at least share the petition with as many friends of Grimm as you can. We need to really show Netflix how committed we are to the Scooby Gang & Grimm! Rebekka Hay will hopefully issue an official update soon. In the meantime, please SIGN & SHARE!
As Grandma said, “Never put all your eggs in one basket!” Just in case Netflix still won’t bite, let’s also ask TNT, the network that already carries seasons 1 – 4 of Grimm, to pick it up. One problem people had with Netflix was the cost; that wouldn’t be an issue here. Sign and share both petitions! Save Grimm any way we can. If we do, we’re part of TV history, if not, we’ll go down fighting! We’re over 650, trying to get to 1,000.
There’s also this petition going around with over 8,000 signatures asking NBC to reconsider, and TNT to pick it up if NBC doesn’t.
The end is near for the supernatural TV series “Grimm”. NBC has officially announced that “Grimm” Season 6 will be the show’s final season with only 13 episodes. However, hope springs anew for fans. Is there any possibility that the network will develop a spinoff series starring the show’s beloved Wesen couple Monroe and Rosalee after “Grimm” Season 6?
Fans were undoubtedly disappointed when “Grimm” Season 6 was announced to only have 13 episodes back in April. After all, the NBC series boasts of 22 episodes per season, right? Unfortunately, fears were confirmed last Monday: “Grimm” will be cancelled by next year. But that doesn’t mean fans can’t hope for a spinoff series starring Monroe and Rosalee and their bouncing baby Wesen.
The adorably quirky couple have won fans over since they met back in the second season. In “Grimm” Season 6, Monroe and Rosalee will be expecting their first Wesen baby. The revelation, which was announced in the Season 5 finale, immediately had fans looking forward to how the couple will deal with the Blutbad/Fuchsbau hybrid.
Some believe that the interest in Monroe, Rosalee and their baby could push NBC to develop a “Grimm” spinoff series featuring the Wesen family. It would also be an excellent way to keep the show going with its most interesting characters.
Deadline confirms that there are several changes made on the show’s final season. The “Grimm” Season 6 air date will be on January 6, a major change from its usual fall premiere. The series will also broadcast one hour earlier than its original 9pm time slot.
The staff at Grimm Fan would like to wish David a very happy birthday today!
Bonaparte is out and Renard is in. The Grimm’s captain is ready to fill the vacant position of season 6’s big bad.
Diana (Hannah R. Loyd) doesn’t like it when you mess with her family, and the pint-sized emotional powder keg used her telekinetic powers to put the Black Claw leader in the ground. Now that there’s an opening up in management, it looks as if Renard (Sasha Roiz) might take control of the Portland branch.
“Renard is going to be the big bad in Season 6,” David Giuntoli (Nick) told TV Insider. “We’ll focus more on him and his rise to power and what that means. I don’t know this for absolute sure, but that’s the word on the street.”
Last we saw Renard, he was standing dumbfounded over Bonaparte’s (Shaun Toub) body, clearly within striking range of everyone’s favorite monster hunter. Is Nick next on his hit list? The cliffhanger left fans wondering, but Giuntoli has assured TV Line that the Nick vs. Renard issue will take center stage in the premiere.
“There’s only so many ways this can go with the captain and Nick. Either we get into a huge melee, or the captain tries to somehow recruit me to his side,” Giuntoli teased. “I don’t see how else it could go. I’m not going to say, ‘Let’s deal with this later.'”
While Renard is the one left holding the sword, Nick is the one with some maniacal rage on his side. The budding politician nearly separated the Grimm from baby Kelly, and if Detective Burkhardt has one mission in life, it’s to keep that little boy safe.
“He’s face to face with Renard, so this could go two ways,” Giuntoli told TV Insider. “Will there be a negotiation? Will Nick think this through? Or is he so furious at Renard for taking his child away that he’ll just go crazy?”
