This was pretty much a no-brainer given its track record, but we still think NBC's early renewal of "Grimm" is some of the best news we've gotten all week! To celebrate, we're happy to finally share the preview of Friday night's Episode 3.16, "The Show Must Go On."
From the Press Release:
“Grimm” is the #1 Friday series on ABC, CBS, NBC, or Fox so far this season in adults 18-49, averaging a 2.5 rating, 8 share in adults 18-49 in “most current” averages from Nielsen Media Research. This is a 4% gain versus the show’s rating at this point in the season last year, while “Grimm’s” average of 8.1 million viewers overall is up versus one year ago by 17%.

There’s no word yet on whether “Law & Order: Svu” will return for a 16th season, but Dick Wolf’s two newest entries for NBC — “Chicago Fire” and “Chicago Pd” — have been renewed for next season along with “Grimm,” the network announced Wednesday.
NBC, which has bolstered its drama standing over the last couple of years, previously picked up hot rookie “The Blacklist” for a second season. It had also given the go-ahead to comedy “Parks and Recreation” for a seventh season as well as reality staples “The Voice” (season 7) and “Celebrity Apprentice” (season 14).
In addition to “Law & Order: Svu,” which has provided a solid lead-in for “Chicago Pd” on Wednesdays this winter, other NBC dramas awaiting word on their fate for next season include “Revolution,” “Hannibal” and “Dracula.”
“Chicago Fire” ranks No. 1 in its Tuesday 10 p.m. slot in adults 18-49, averaging a 3.1 rating/8 share and 10.6 million viewers overall »

A poker table in the late seventies, a bathroom in the mid-noughties… television shows have many birthplaces. Had screenwriters David Greenwalt and Jim Kouf not been introduced at a card game over thirty years ago, and had producer Todd Milliner not taken a 2006 shower in which he pondered what existing stories were in need of a modern update for TV, then Grimm might never have existed.
First, that poker game. Greenwalt and Kouf’s friendship began a couple of years before their first official screenwriting credit on 1982’s horror spoof Wacko, a job for which the pair were paid the princely sum of fifteen thousand dollars…
“We did a lot of fun movies back then”
That’s what Greenwalt told Collider »
