First Look: Meet Grimm’s Newest Wesen: Octo-Man!

140722mag-grimm1_210x305It’s the worst kind of identity theft. When NBC’s Grimm returns this fall for its fourth season, we’ll meet up with Gedächtnis Esser — aka Octo-Man — a nefarious new Wesen who can attach his tentacles to your head and steal all your memories, leaving you either dead or with severe amnesia. And we’ve got the very first look at the slimy fellow!

“This guy is ruthless and sophisticated — a high-tech spy who is involved with some highly placed military intelligence personnel,” says cocreator David Greenwalt. Though Octo-Man will claim many victims, he specifically targets that feisty new Grimm in town, Trubel (Jacqueline Toboni), and that, notes Greenwalt, “will leave her in a very dire state.”

Does this mean Grimm will suddenly be Grimm-free? Last May’s season finale ended with Det. Nick Burkhardt (David Giuntoli) tragically losing his superpowers. But, when the show returns (on Friday, Oct. 24), he and girlfriend Juliette (Bitsie Tulloch) will think they might be better off. “For Juliette, it’s been no fun being in love with a Grimm — in fact, it’s nonstop stress and constant risk,” notes cocreator Jim Kouf. “Would it be so bad if Nick didn’t get his powers back? It’s like asking Superman, ‘If you had the choice, would you stop being a superhero, marry Lois Lane and live normally — and happily ever after — in Kansas?'”

Silas Weir Mitchell & Sasha Roiz will star in Portland Center Stage’s ‘Three Days of Rain’

Portland Center Stage announced a big change to its 2014-2015 season Thursday that’s sure to delight fans of the TV series “Grimm.” Silas Weir Mitchell and Sasha Roiz will star in the drama “Three Days of Rain,” which will close the company’s season in May 2015.

” ‘Grimm’ is filmed in Portland, and has been a welcome addition to the city’s creative landscape,” PCS artistic director Chris Coleman said in a press release announcing the season change. “Since they arrived in town, both Sasha and Silas have been visitors to Portland Center Stage, and so I’ve come to know them. We’ve been waiting for the right timing, and the right project, to work together.”

“Three Days of Rain” will begin previews on May 17, 2015, and open on May 22, running through June 21, 2015, on the Main Stage at the Gerding Theater at the Armory.

The drama, written by Richard Greenberg, focuses on three New Yorkers struggling with the puzzles of family history and the nature of creativity. The play has the actors portraying both grown children and their own parents. The actress who will play the third role will be announced at a later date.

The production of “Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike,” originally set for the season-closing slot, will move to Jan. 10- Feb. 8, 2015, replacing “Mojada,” which has been postponed to a later season.

On “Grimm,” the filmed-in-Portland supernatural drama, Mitchell and Roiz play the popular characters Monroe and Capt. Renard.

Portland Center Stage season tickets are on sale now. Individual tickets to “Three Days of Rain” will go on sale in January, 2015. Information: 503-445-3700 or visit www.pcs.org.

NBC Announces Premiere Date for Grimm

NBC’s Constantine TV series, based on the DC Comics character, now has a premiere date. The Blacklist and Grimm will be back, too.

Constantine made a splash when the pilot was picked up to series by NBC, and now we know when we can first watch John Constantine in action. Constantine will premiere on NBC on Friday, October 24th at 10 p.m. EST, right after the season premiere of Grimm at 9. That’s a nice block of supernatural programming for those of us who prefer to stay home on Friday nights. Dropping ol’ Hellblazer the week before Halloween seems about right to us, too.

Fans waiting for more Red Reddington and friends don’t have to wait quite as long. The Blacklist season 2 will premiere on September 22nd in its usual 10 p.m. timeslot. You can read the rest of NBC’s premiere date schedule over at Entertainment Weekly.

Season 4 Spoilers: About those Black Forest keys…

Apparently, the Black Forest is more than just a really good kind of ham; it is also a long-nagging plot point when it comes to “Grimm” that many have questioned for quite a long time. So when will these questions eventually become answers? This is something that we are apparently going to get some answers to … eventually.

Now that Nick has another key and is starting to piece the map together, is it possible that all will be revealed with this next season? Well, you know that there are still many more keys to be collected, so let’s not rush into things here. Speaking to TVLine, executive producer David Greenwalt had the following to say:

“We can look forward to a third key, and we know the royals have four, and Nick and his cohorts have three, and in Year 5 — we promise –we will put all this together and find out what the hell they lead to.”

What we are personally interested in seeing more is how Nick is going to unravel the “infidelity,” which is really something that he didn’t have control over. This is one of two crazy twists that came through the finale, with the other one being where Nick is now when it comes to his powers … and we really applaud the show for this one. As many series go along, they traditionally feel this sort of temptation to push the envelope, and have things become as crazy as humanly possible … even if that is often the last thing that you need. The fact that the show opted to go in the completely opposite direction is commendable, and it forces us to look deeper at the Nick character and his humanity.

What do you want to see on “Grimm” next season?
