NBC Cuts Season 6 Order To 13 Episodes; Reggie Lee On Wu’s Transformation

After renewing its popular supernatural police procedural drama earlier this month, NBC has now cut the “Grimm” season 6 order to just 13 episodes.

While a shortened season is still better than an outright cancellation, fans of the show are now worried that the downsized season may be an indication that the occult detective fiction could be on its way out. An episode order of 13 episodes is nearly half the length of a regular full order for a network television show, which typically consists of at least 22 episodes.

Deadline reports that with so many other drama series on its plate, NBC may have halved its “Grimm” episode order to give NBC executives some scheduling flexibility. The outlet also noted that there may, in fact, be more than 13 episodes in the next season, depending on how the network’s schedule is organized.

As Deadline noted, 13 is not a fixed number. Though the season 6 order is said to be for a minimum of 13 episodes, there is a possibility that the pickup could be for more.

Meanwhile, “Grimm” actor Reggie Lee recently spoke about the surprising transformation his character, Sergeant Drew Wu, underwent in the previous episode, titled “Good to the Bone.”

“It’s interesting, because I didn’t think I would ever be here,” Lee told IGN. “I always thought I was like the human that was safe – safe being a relative term in ‘Grimm.'”

According to Lee, he didn’t know when he was shooting “Good to the Bone” that Sergeant Wu’s transformation would be permanent. He also admitted that he read up on Neanderthals and werewolves in preparation for the episode.

“This episode and the next episode are really pivotal, and that’s why I asked for a lot of [prep time],” he said. “I’m crazy about my prep time, but when there’s an emotional change and a physical change, I think it’s integral that I get it as accurate as possible for myself emotionally.”

‘Grimm’ Renewed For Season 6 By NBC

NBC’s Friday night drama series Grimm will keep going as the supernatural crime drama has received another early renewal by the network for a sixth season.

Grimm was a lower-profile entry when it debuted in fall 2011 alongside another fairytale-themed drama that is still going strong, ABC’s Once Upon a Time. The NBC genre drama, produced by Sean Hayes and Todd Milliner, became a sleeper hit, the first scripted success for the network’s new regime and the only series from Bob Greenblatt’s first batch of shows that is still around. NBC tried launching other genre dramas with Grimm on Friday, some with higher-profile pedigree, but Grimm outlasted them all — Hannibal, Dracula, Crossbones and Constantine. Grimm also is owned by NBC, which makes it a solid financial performer for NBCUniversal with solid international and SVOD sales.

Grimm joins previously renewed NBC dramas The Blindspot, Shades of Blue, Chicago Fire, Chicago PD, Chicago Med and Law & Order: SVU as well as comedy Superstore.

“We absolutely love what our producers and cast have accomplished over the past five seasons,” NBC Entertainment Jennifer Salke said. “They have created a whole new world of creatures and have a truly devoted fan base. We can’t wait to see what comes next.”

NBC logo 2016This season, Grimm originals are averaging a 1.7 rating in adults 18-49 and 6.4 million viewers overall in Live+7. Grimm is one of the most time-shifted series on the broadcast networks, growing by an average of +90% in adult 18-49 rating (from a 0.91 to a 1.73) and more than 2.4 million viewers overall (3.9 million to 6.4 million) from Live+Same Day to Live+7. Grimm also generates an upscale audience, indexing at a 111 among adults 18-49 living homes with $100K+ incomes (with 100 representing an average concentration of those high-income homes).

As the nefarious forces of Black Claw take hold of Portland, Nick (David Giuntoli) must take a stand to protect his city and those closest to him, especially his child with Adalind (Claire Coffee). It will take the full force of Nick and his allies to find a way to bring the Wesen uprising to a halt. Grimm also stars Russell Hornsby, Bitsie Tulloch, Silas Weir Mitchell, Reggie Lee, Bree Turner and Sasha Roiz.

Grimm is a Universal Television and Hazy Mills production. The series was created by David Greenwalt & Jim Kouf and Stephen Carpenter. Sean Hayes, Todd Milliner and Norberto Barba serve as executive producers along with Greenwalt and Kouf.

Sneak Peek Videos of Grimm Season 5 Premiere!

First, the promo:

Now, here are 2 sneak peek video clips!

Season 5 Spoilers: Expect a different Nick Burkhardt

Season 5 of “Grimm” might just see a different, more vengeful Nick as he copes with the loss of his mother and girlfriend. As if the series is not already dark as it is, it would get even darker as Nick prepares to go out with revenge.

Season 4’s finale saw Nick Burkhardt (David Guintoli) holding his girlfriend Juliette Silverton (Bitsie Tulloch) in his arms after she was killed by Trubel (Jacqueline Toboni). Trubel only did that in order to save him as Juilette had been turned into a hexenbiest. This will set Nick off on a path of revenge in season 5, and the preview for the season hints of a different Nick.

While Nick is off on a revenge spree, “Grimm” is also known for showing familiar monsters in the show. For season 5, the Loch Ness monster is said to be coming. How the Loch Ness monster will find its way into the show will be food for much speculation.

Madeline Brewer will also make an appearance in the show. The “Orange is the New Black” actress will appear as Billie Trump, according to TVLine. Her character is a lizard-like Wesen, which is called a Skalengeck. She is set to appear in episodes 6 and 7. Her appearance into the show bode of more bad things to come, as she would be part of a street gang who are, in reality, also Skalengeck.

Another “Orange is the New Black” cast will reappear in season 5 of “Grimm.” Elizabeth Rodriguez returns as FBI Agent Chavez. Carlson Young from MTV’s “Scream” will be guesting as well.

With so many things happening this coming season, “Grimm” will be more exciting and much darker than ever. Fans will have to wait and know if Juliette actually died last season, or as some speculated might still be alive, though that would make Nick’s revenge seem strange.

Season 5 of “Grimm” will premiere on Oct. 30, 9 p.m. on NBC.

Season 5 Spoilers: Increased tension between Nick & Hank

“Grimm” season 5 is only two months away, and spoilers and updates are now available for the popular NBC fantasy series.

In an interview at the 2015 Comic-Con, Grimm star Russell Hornsby revealed a few details about his character Hank Griffin’s fate in the show’s fifth season. The recent death of Nick Burkhardt’s loved ones will bring out his darker side and will put a rift between him and his friend Hank, according to Movie News Guide.

In season 4, Trubel killed Nick’s girlfriend Juliette (Bitsie Tulloch) to save him. Nick had unsuccessfully tried to kill Juliette to avenge his mother, but found himself unable to do it because of his love for her. Trubel then stepped in and finished the job and the scene ended with Juliette dying in Nick’s arms, the Latin Post reports.

The events in the previous season will create a ripple effect in the next. Horsnby said there will be tension between the two pals in Grimm season 5 as Nick’s effort to move out of his comfort zone complicates his relationship with Hank.

“When you look at what he’s lost up to this point, I think there’s a lot more at stake then there was even in the first season,” the Latin Post quotes Hornsby’s statement about Nick. “When you lose your aunt who didn’t know, it doesn’t really set off the same amount of emotions as it does as losing your girlfriend and your mother, whom you’ve fought side by side with.”

Meanwhile, Juliette will end up inside a coffin at the beginning of Grimm’s next season. It can be remembered that Trubel killed her in the finale episode of the previous season. Despite fans’ desire to have Juliette included in the next installation of Grimm, show’s boss David Greenwalt confirmed that the character has already seen her end. She will most likely be seen only in flashback scenes, the report details.

Executive producer Jim Kouf also revealed that Grimm fans will witness Nick and Adalind try to fix their relationship and co-parent their baby. The child will be important because he will be the reason why his parents’ relationship will be restored. Nick and Adalind will strive to protect the baby from future harm.

As Nick and Adalind’s relationship mends, Monroe and Rosalee’s will crumble. The two will face problems in their marriage, the report adds.

Grimm season 5 will begin airing on Oct. 30 on NBC.
