You may be sad that Grimm‘s final season is half as long as its previous ones… but the supernatural series’ showrunners sure aren’t.
“There was a chance that we would have gotten 22 [episodes], and we were going, ‘Oh my God,'” James Kouf says, laughing. He and his fellow showrunner, David Greenwalt, are sitting on folding chairs just outside one of Grimm‘s main stages in Portland., Ore., taking advantage of a break in filming the NBC drama’s penultimate episode to chat with visiting reporters. “That’s a long trek,” Greenwalt adds. “We did that for five years. »
On the 12th day of Krampus, the Grimm gang brought to me: resolution to some big mysterieeeeees.
In the exclusive video below, the NBC supernatural drama’s cast and executive producers give a brief recap of the Season 5 finale — remember, with the magic stick and the tunnels and the creepy dolls? — before setting up what fans can expect to see in the series’ final go-around.
“We’re gonna answer a couple of very large questions,” Ep David Greenwalt says in the featurette. »

McKenna will play Lt. Grossante, a “formidable and driven” an “military-type” cop, per the official character description. McKenna, who announced his casting via Twitter on Tuesday, is officially signed on for one episode but will probably appear in more.

Stick a sword in it — Renard, you wanna do the honors? — because Grimm is done for the season.
Friday’s two-hour finale saw the deaths of three players, including Meisner (sniff!), and some intriguing developments for various members of the Scooby Gang. Here’s a quick recap:
Hadrian’s Wall identified Bonaparte, a Zauberbiest who helped found Black Claw, as being the insurgent group’s top man on the ground in Portland. Meanwhile, at Renard’s mansion, Bonaparte used his powers to petrify Adalind briefly, then promised to hurt her children if she ever removed the engagement ring he put »
Grimm‘s Nick Burkhardt has spent the past few episodes harried, hunted and haunted by a betrayal, which can only mean one thing: It’s season finale time again!
At the very end of last week’s episode, David Giuntoli‘s Nick watched Sean Renard celebrate his ill-gotten mayoral victory, flanked on stage by his even more ill-gotten “family”: a coerced Adalind, Diana and baby Kelly. “You’re dead,” Nick said, clenching his fist and seething at his former boss as the screen cut to black.

We’ve got questions, and you’ve (maybe) got answers! With another week of TV gone by, we’re lobbing queries left and right about shows including Outlander, Once Upon a Time, Scorpion and Arrow!

Grimm season 5 takes on the world of evangelical preaching in its latest comic-tinged episode...
This review contains spoilers.
5.16 The Believer
First off, some good news for fans of Grimm: NBC has revealed that the show will be returning for a sixth season later this year, yay! It’s good to see the network supporting our favourite fairytale police procedural.
This week’s encounter with the Wesen world features an evangelical preacher who channels his inner Furis Rubian for his own ends. An accidental death leads Hank and Nick to the preacher’s door, and predictably we encounter large doses of religious fervour, delusion, betrayal and greed.
Being forced to deal with religious nut-jobs seems to bring out the snark in our favourite detectives, with Wu in particular delivering new levels of sarcasm when confronted with the case.
“What is this, some type of circus?” asks Hank »
Grimm will return for season 6, as NBC declares “absolute love” for the producers’ accomplishments so far…
"We absolutely love what our producers and cast have accomplished over the past five seasons. 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."
Judging by previous form, we’d expect Grimm to return to American screens in late October 2016, and to run until May 2017. By all accounts, the show will remain in its Friday night slot on NBC. »
NBC has renewed supernatural drama “Grimm” for Season 6, the network announced Tuesday.

The Grimm gang finally get inside the chest of the seven keys and what do they find? Er...
This review contains spoilers.
5.12 Into The Schwarzwald
This week Grimm hit its much talked-about 100th episode, and in the main, it didn’t disappoint.
Show creators Jim Kouf and David Greenwalt had previously teased a big reveal to the four-and-a half-season-long storyline involving those damn keys, but they were still in no hurry to reveal their secrets.
As a result we see Nick and Monroe overcome one obstacle after another in their search to locate the buried treasure. In the style of the best Indiana Jones outings, the two have to deal with underground catacombs, piles of ancient bones, and figure out a secret marker to the treasure before finally uncovering the mysterious chest of secrets. (Because it’s Grimm though, they also have to escape an angry German »
“We could tell it was cooking when we were making it.”
Grimm‘s Silas Weir Mitchell sits in a Portland, Ore., hotel’s dining room, co-star and onscreen wife Bree Turner to his left, during a breakfast with reporters in February. He’s speaking not of the giant and heavenly smelling German pancake a waiter has just placed in front of him — “a Grimm pancake,” he jokes — but of the NBC series’ upcoming 100th episode.
The milestone hour, which airs Friday (9/8c), continues Monroe and Nick’s search for »
A prolific screenwriter who emerged from the late 1970s as a promising American film director, Lewis John Carlino wouldn’t get behind the camera following his third, and least successfully received feature, Class (1983), an item which, in passing, looks to have the stamp of John Hughes and the Brat Pack all over it. Aggravating in its considerable inconsistencies, this was the director’s first attempt to film a treatment he didn’t write or adapt himself, scripted by Jim Kouf and David Greenwalt (both writers who would move into mainstream film and television). The result is a rather wishy-washy prep school version of The Graduate, but the comparison is merely a pale echo, trapped inside a banal resolution with troubling misogynist tendencies.

It looks like we can finally put that speculation about the Wonder Woman movie villain to rest...
Wonder Woman has been around for 75 years, but somehow hasn't made it to a movie screen in a movie of her own yet. That's all about to change in 2017 when Patty Jenkins directs Gal Gadot as the most famous Amazon warrior in pop culture history when the Wonder Woman movie finally arrives, with a script by Allan Heinberg and Geoff Johns.
The big mystery so far has been who the heck the villain of the movie is supposed to be. We previously speculated based on one of the trailers that it's God of War, and Wonder Woman foe, Ares, »

5.11 Key Move
“Into the woods we go.”
Last summer, the show’s executive producers hinted that they had big plans for the show’s 100th episode, coming up next week. “We’re going to explain the damn keys,” Grimm co-creator David Greenwalt told a Comic-Con audience, before adding: “We’ still don’t know what they do but by god we’re going to explain it.”
It looks like Greenwalt is keeping his word as we approach episode 100 with Nick and Monroe up to their necks in the forest – literally – being pursued by »
Not content to just campaign to play Carol Danvers/Captain Marvel in Marvel’s Cinematic Universe, former Ufc champion Ronda Rousey is now looking to take on another iconic role.
“I’ve always wanted to be Samus,” Rousey told Gamespot. “That would be badass. I love how people found out later that it was a hot chick on the inside. And then most of the day you’re in a suit, so you can just hang out and eat donuts and be the star of Metroid. I hope they make a movie out of that.”
Metroid debuted on the Nes in 1988, and would become a Nintendo icon with the release of 1994’s Super Metroid, a game hailed as one of the best ever made. Its star, Samus Aran, would feature again in the critically-acclaimed Metroid Prime Trilogy across the Gamecube and Nintendo Wii and the the critically-destroyed Metroid: Other M. »
