NBC's Grimm TV show's sixth season premieres Friday, October 28, 2016. So said co-star Bitsie Tulloch, speaking in a Facebook video chat she did last week with Sebastian Roché. Watch it, below. To give itself scheduling room, so far NBC has only ordered 13 episodes of Grimm, season six. The two-part season five finale's title, "The Beginning of the End," could indicate the supernatural police procedural fantasy drama is drawing to a close sooner rather than later.
Roché, who guest-starred in Grimm season one, episode 18, "Cat and Mouse," as Edgar Waltz is playing Reichsminister Martin Heusmann in the upcoming second season of The Man in the High Castle on Amazon. Tulloch is working with Roché, Jack McBrayer, and Paula Marshall, on Christopher Gorham's feature film, We Love You, Sally Carmichael, currently shooting in Utah. The Grimm TV series cast also includes: David »
The new season of Orange Is the New Black is filled with new faces, but one in particular looks familiar. The new guard, Desi Piscatella, is played by Brad William Henke, whom you might recognize but not be able to place. He has appeared in a myriad of TV shows since the '90s, including (but not limited to) ER, CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, Cold Case, Criminal Minds, Shameless, Grimm, Bones, Castle, and, of course, Law & Order. But his résumé has expanded beyond guest-starring roles, as well. Here are five places you may have seen him before! »

If you were a TV critic from 1956 to 1976, you would have witnessed some big changes in the business: the rise and fall of the Western as the dominant primetime genre, or the color TV boom, or CBS' shift from silly rural comedies to socially conscious ones like All in the Family and M*A*S*H. If you covered the beat from 1976 to 1996, you would have written about Hill Street Blues and its many imitators, the classic years of SNL, and the early days of original cable programming. Almost any 20-year span would give you a front row seat to enormous artistic and technological change. As of this week, I've been professionally writing about television for exactly 20 years(*), and it's safe to say that the only two-decade period that featured a more radical transformation in how television was made and consumed would be back when the medium was first introduced into America's living rooms. »

Saved by the bell doll.
Grimm‘s Nick escaped a deadly fate — being Zauberbiest’d out of existence — in the Season 5 finale. To recount, Mayor-Elect Renard picked up a sword and ran it through Black Claw boss Bonaparte just as he was about to kill the Grimm. But here’s the rub: The former police chief didn’t do so of his own volition. Diana, his young daughter with Adalind, used her formidable, supernatural power to enchant a doll… »

Grimm concludes season 5 with a two-part finale that kept the dramatic tension high throughout...
This review contains spoilers.
5.21 & 5.22 The Beginning Of The End
This season of Grimm has had its ups and downs, it’s fair to say. For the most part its now-established formula of fairy-tale creatures, romance, action and modern-day heroes and villains has continued to excite fans – but there have also been a few issues with pacing, gaps in storytelling and questionable plot twists.
The show’s two-hour season five finale, however, went above and beyond what we’ve seen this season. Despite its extended length, the episode crammed an awful lot in, yet remained fast paced, keeping the dramatic tension high at all times.
What really comes across is that Black Claw’s grip on society now seems unbreakable. The group’s plans to methodically infiltrate every aspect of government, police and other agencies is paying off, »
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.

Production on the R-rated Wolverine 3 started earlier this month, and the veil of secrecy is still as tight as when the project started announcing its cast members. And, like clockwork, another cast member has been announced as potentially taking part of Hugh Jackman's final appearance as the prolific mutant. Please welcome Fear The Walking Dead's Elizabeth Rodriguez into the speculation pool! The Wrap reported the rumors as the latest news surrounding Wolverine 3's already exciting cast list. Rodriguez was most recently seen in the first season of Fear The Walking Dead, playing the role of Liza Ortiz, the ex-wife to Cliff Curtis' Travis Manawa, but has also been seen in shows such as Orange Is The New Black and Grimm, as well as the Tom Hardy film The Drop. With an extensive resume in hand, Rodriguez's potential casting has us asking the same question we ask whenever »
According to The Wrap, Elizabeth Rodriguez may be poised to join Hugh Jackman for his final turn as mutant berserker Logan in director James Mangold's The Wolverine sequel. As has become customary with the casting announcement for this movie, no details on her character are provided - though she would apparently play a "small but key role" in the story. Rodriguez last appeared on season 1 of Fear The Walking Dead (spoiler alert), but she's also starred in the likes of Orange is the New Black, Grimm, Six Feet Under, Blow, and Miami Vice. The follow-up to The Wolverine will also star Patrick Stewart, Boyd Holbrook, Richard E. Grant, Stephen Merchant and Elise Neal. The movie is set for release on March 3, 2017. »
After treading water for weeks, Grimm is finally building up to the big end-of-season clash due in the approaching two-part finale...
This review contains spoilers.
5.20 Bad Night
As we crash inevitably onwards to next week’s two-hour season finale, Bad Night tries valiantly to inject some tension into the proceedings. And to some extent it works, with most of the episode focusing on Nick’s transformation from mild-mannered detective to a man consumed by a need for revenge against those who have taken his family.
It’s understandable, of course, that he’s feeling vexed after Black Claw forced Adalind to up and leave with their child, all so newbie politician Renard can benefit from a camera-friendly instant family. (There’s clearly more to it than that though, right?)
The writers are obviously attempting to portray a new darker side to Nick; a man driven by revenge »
RelatedEmerald City Photos: Meet NBC’s Wicked Witch, Dorothy and More
Starring Mandy Moore (Red Band Society), Milo Ventimiglia (Gilmore Girls) and Sterling K. Brown (The People v. O.J. Simpson), the project follows a unique ensemble whose paths cross and their life stories intertwine in curious ways. We find several of them share the same birthday, and so much more than anyone would expect.
The spinoff, which essentially launched with last night’s episode of Chicago P.D., follows the State’s Attorney’s prosecutors and investigators as they pursue justice. Per the official logline: “As they take on the city’s high stakes and often media-frenzied cases, they must balance public opinion, power struggles within the system and their unwavering passion for the law. It all starts with a gut-wrenching case when one of Chicago’s finest is shot in the line of duty. »
The police captain’s bid to become Portland’s mayor intensifies in the season’s final episodes (NBC, Fridays at 9/8c), as does his mission to recruit Nick for Black Claw. It’s an uphill battle, selling Burkhardt on the benefits of a fairytale creature uprising, but Sasha Roiz says Renard is gunning to make it happen — so thirsty is he for the power promised by a new Wesen order.

The crux of the episode involves a shooting, in which Roman is seriously injured. Burgess runs after the assailant and shoots him in the back multiple times. But it’s hardly case closed after that. The young man, Michael Ellis, is, by all accounts, an Eagle Scout. Even worse, the police have no eyewitnesses and can’t find the gun »
