‘Grimm’ to Conclude on NBC

Drama To Wrap Up After Six Seasons

NBC has announced that the upcoming sixth season of drama “Grimm” will be its last. Debuting on Oct. 28, 2011, the now final season will begin on Friday, Jan. 6 at 8 p.m. ET. These thirteen final episodes will take the total tally to 123. “Grimm’s” final season will lead into new fantasy drama “Emerald City,” which inherits its former 9 p.m. ET hour.

The scoop in the final season: Now in the seat of power as the mayor-elect of Portland, Renard (Sasha Roiz) is poised to bring rise to his own brand of law and order. Nick (David Giuntoli) must take a stand to protect his city and those closest to him, especially his child with Adalind (Claire Coffee).

NBC also announced that “The New Celebrity Apprentice” with new boardroom CEO Arnold Schwarzenegger will open on Monday, Jan. 2.

  1. Six seasons is superb for a show like this on broadcast. I have enjoyed and I am glad NBC is giving it 13 episodes to wrap everything up.

    I am glad Marc’s prediction that the show would be one of the first cancellations when it premiered obviously never came to pass Lol

      • I know you hate the show yet literally no show on Friday scores a 2.0 Demo or higher on the night. I am never really sure what you expect for each night.

        • As you know, I think demo ratings are only used to confuse the media, and through them us. 🙂

          What I expect for a decently-rated show (not a hit but what used to be a run-of-the-mill show) is 10 million viewers.

          Most of the current shows don’t get there, but because a bunch of really awful shows are getting bad ratings doesn’t mean good ratings are unattainable.

          If re-runs of NCIS during the season can get 10 million viewers, a brand new scripted show should at least deliver that.

          You could talk me into going down to 9 million given the atrociously low ratings. 😉

          • Well Rena we have gone over this so many times. 1950 until now is a different beast. Social media and online watching platforms have sucked a lot of life out of live TV and many don’t even have live TV anymore.

            Grimm survived because well more than live ratings as have so many other shows.

            • You’re the one who asked a question, so I am at a loss to understand why you got testy when I answered you…

              The “cable/the internet/social media/ home video/ DVDs/ Blu-rays ate my ratings” has been a bad excuse used for years and years for years and years.

              There are more viewers with live (+SD and +3) TV today than there has ever been before.

              The fact it is a slightly lower percentage should not obscure that fact.

              Actually, every day, there is a new record for addressable viewership in this country. Just staying even your number of viewers would go up with the demography.

              The networks keep renewing favored flops in the absence of actual hits (or even solid shows sadly) and always refer to uncounted and unaudited viewers to explain away the bad ratings.

              I don’t think we should buy into their spin.

  2. After five low-rated seasons, NBC finally calls it quits. Imagine what good the money wasted on that show may have done NBC had it been invested in possible hits…
