Season 3 Spoilers: A Creepy Surprise for Sergeant Wu

Supernatural drama “Grimm” will feature new monsters and more monster feuds in its upcoming third season.

Showrunners James Kouf and David Greenwalt told TVLine that upcoming episodes will feature “alligators in the sewer” and “a reemergence of the Bauerschwein-Blutbad feud.” In one episode, Sergeant Wu (Reggie Lee) will collide with the Wesen world, in what is to be one of the most frightening scenes yet.

The creature he encounters is “something so creepy that the last thing that creepy was the fly episode,” Greenwalt revealed. “This is right on par with that.”

TVLine also confirms that Greenwalt has recruited Alexis Denisof to join the show’s third season. Greenwalt worked with Denisof on the show “Angel.” Denisof will join the fairytale thriller to play Viktor Albert Wilhelm George Beckendorf, Renard’s (James Frain) astute first cousin.

Manny Montana of “Graceland” is also joining the series to guest star as David Florez, a hotheaded ex-marine who served in Afghanistan. Montana’s Florez suffers from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, an ailment suffered by many vets.

TVLine also reports that Monroe (Silas Weir Mitchell) and Rosalee (Bree Turner) will be getting hitched in season three. Viewer’s saw the pair’s romance simmer in season two. Yet, it will be difficult for the pair to explain the impending nuptials to their families, seeing as they are two very different creatures. (Monroe is a wolf-like Blutbad and Rosalee is a fox-like Fuchsbau).

Greenwalt and Kouf said that Nick’s (David Giuntoli) zombie-like stay in the box, which was shown in the season two finale, will make him “dangerous.” So when Nick wakes up, he will be in a very different frame of mind.

“He’s definitely going to the dark side,” Greenwalt said. “And he may get another face of green spit before it’s over.”

Grimm’s third season premieres on October 25 on NBC.

Grimm Season 3 Spoilers: First Details of Premiere Released

“Grimm” is getting ready for its third season on NBC, and now fans are being given more inside scoop on the season to come. On Monday, July 15, Spoiler TV shared the title of the season three premiere. The information comes from Bitsie Tulloch. She posted the first page of the season three premiere script to her Twitter on Sunday. She plays Rosalee on the NBC series.

The first episode of season three will be titled “The Ungrateful Dead.” Nick was turned into a zombie at the end of season two, so this title could relate to his state. He is being teased as ‘dangerous’ in this zombie state.

Tulloch also revealed in her tweet that production for season three would start on Monday. Her tweet said the following:

“Finishing up my summer reading. #backtoschool tomorrow! @NBCGrimm #grimm #theungratefuldead.”

Rosalee will have a lot to deal with to start season three. She will have to help Nick recover from his zombie spell, and she will be preparing to walk down the aisle, according to TV Line. Monroe and Rosalee will marry early on during the season, but there might be a parental clash. Monroe’s parents usually see Rosalee’s kind as dinner, and not the kind you marry.

“Grimm” will return to Friday nights this fall on NBC.

They’re Back!!

If you happen to notice some familiar-looking folks turning up around Portland, don’t be surprised. As Twitter tells us, “Grimm” cast members are back in town. David Giuntoli, who plays Nick Burkhardt, Portland’s most supernaturally gifted homicide detective, got in the mood before arriving back in the Rose City.

So, what will the actors be shooting once they’re all back in Portland? As fans will recall, the Season 2 finale left our hero Nick in a bad way — lying in a coffin, having been put into a zombie-like state. Captain Renard’s dastardly Royal brother Eric (James Frain) is preparing to fly back to Europe with his prize, a Grimm. Meanwhile, more of the zombies under the sway of Baron Samedi are about to attack the Scooby Gang, Monroe (Silas Weir Mitchell), Rosalee (Bree Turner) and Juliette.

Entertainment Weekly has some Season 3 hints of things to come from co-executive producer Jim Kouf. (posted below) Asked about Nick’s situation, Kouf says things won’t be resolved quickly. “It’s going to take a couple of scripts to get Nick back into shape.” No wonder.

Kouf also says Hank (Russell Hornsby), who last we saw suffering from an Achilles tendon injury (which Hornsby had in real life) may be getting some romantic action in Season 3.

And we’ll have to wait a while to see Season 3 debut. “Grimm” is scheduled to return with new episodes Friday, Oct. 25. Just in time for Halloween. Again.


And here’s some questions answered by EP Jim Kouf, taken from Entertainment Weekly:

Will Nick’s precarious situation be resolved in the first five minutes of the new season by a rescue, or will he actually be taking an unscheduled trip to Europe? I noticed that Renard was last seen watching his brother leave the hotel, with the implication that he was going to follow him, but I’m not sure whether that was intentional. — Isaac
Don’t expect a quick resolution in the case of Nick’s zombiefication at all. In fact, Kouf tells me, “It’s going to take a couple of scripts to get Nick back into shape. Gotta say, he’s having a tough time. It hasn’t been easy on him,” he says. He adds that it will take a huge group effort to help Nick, who will definitely be a changed man after his experience. “Like with any near-death experience or medical issue that someone deals with, it kind of changes their lives. You have a new perspective on things, so Nick is going to have to deal with the residual effects,” he teases.

Hi! I have been a faithful Grimm watcher since the first episode! Since season 2, you have converted me to a major Juliett/Renard shipper. Please tell me there is still hope all of us J/R shippers in season 3! — Megan
“No plans but that doesn’t mean it won’t happen,” Kouf reports. “We allow the characters to kind of develop in a natural way. As we create the characters and we work them through the story, sometimes, suddenly someone has a different need that we didn’t know they had. And we allow ourselves to play those needs out.” In sum, he says, “You just never know, and we don’t always necessarily know. The characters speak to us. We try to let them behave and tell us what they want.”

Any scoop on what’s up with Hank this season on Grimm? — Gail
“He’s been kind of single for a while,” Kouf says, “so we plan to get him hooked up again.” Now accepting casting suggestions!

Bree Turner Teases About Season Finale

Consider this your spoiler warning: “Grimm’s” second season is gong to end with a big ol’ cliffhanger. Star Bree Turner knows what’s in store, and she says that fans are going to be in for a shocker when a major character gets into some dire straights in Tuesday’s episode, “Goodbye, Sweet Grimm.”

“Someone’s life is definitely in balance and it’s very, very, very scary to be this person,” Turner admits during a recent conference call. “I honestly don’t know how we’re going to resolve it in terms of storyline. I’m nervous and excited about how Season 3 is going to begin with this cliffhanger.”

Even with the cliffhanger, Turner says the cast of “Grimm” is really excited to share “Goodnight, Sweet Grimm” with the world. The script is more than she could have asked for, she says.

“Seeing the finale script, I don’t know what more they could have put in this script,” Turner says. “Every storyline gets blown out and exposed, resolved, challenged and then just the level of production value in this finale is like feature film quality stuff that we did in terms of effects and story and set and environment. It was all just really at the top of our game, I felt.”

In last week’s “The Waking Dead,” Juliette learned about the world of the Wesen. Turner says that major change is welcome on the set of the series.

“I think it’s a well-deserved breath of fresh air for everyone to have her memory back and to have her involved in this world, and also just for another female energy in the group,” Turner says of Bitsie Tulloch’s character. “I think it will bring some lovely new sort of dynamic to the scenes and to the show itself. I’m excited for us to be a little girl power duo.”

Rosalee has evolved a lot since her character was first introduced, and Turner says embracing Rosalee’s “light and her kindness and compassion” was a nice part of Season 2. With Rosalee’s confidence evolving, it’s offered Turner a lot of new facets of her character to play with.

“I think at her core she’s a truly compassionate soul and loving spirit,” Turner says. “It’s been really fun to not play the dark and play the light this season.”

Still, Turner hopes that the “Grimm” writers chose to explore some of the darkness in Rosalee’s past in Season 3.

“In terms of Season 3, who knows? I think it would be fun sort of to let some skeletons out of the closet,” she teases. Turner adds of Rosalee’s connection to the Wesen Council, “We don’t know where the writers are going to take us, but I think that’s a pretty juicy storyline to explore, for Rosalee in particular.”

She also teased that all might not be well for her relationship with Monroe. Turner and Silas Weir Mitchell have had their chance to explore the positive side of their characters’ romance, but she teases that there could be some problems in paradise coming in Season 3.

“It’s grim. People don’t stay happy very long on this show. The Rosalee and Monroe romance has had such a beautiful journey this season that, let’s be real, only complications are coming, I’m assuming,” Turner says.

“Grimm’s” Season 2 finale airs Tuesday at 10 p.m. ET on NBC. Season 3 returns in the fall on Fridays at 9 p.m.
