‘Grimm’ is a police procedural drama, created for NBC by Stephen Carpenter, Jim Kouf, and David Greenwalt. The occult detective fiction and fantasy series originally premiered on the network on October 28, 2011. The story is about Portland Homicide detective Nick Burkhardt, who is also a Grimm and the last descendant from his ancestry of guardians whose sole duty is to maintain the balance between humans and mythical begins, called Wesen.
As the episodes progress, we follow Burkhardt as he battles multiple dangerous, supernatural creatures, alongside his Wesen friend, Monroe, and colleague, Detective Hank Griffin. The opposing Wesen groups, which repeatedly get into clashes with one another are Black Claw and Hadrian’s Wall. As per the opening, “There once was a man who lived a life so strange, it had to be true. Only he could see what no one else can—the darkness inside, the real monster within, and he’s the one who must stop them. This is his calling. This is his duty. This is the life of a Grimm.”
Described as “a cop drama—with a twist … a dark and fantastical project about a world in which characters inspired by Grimms’ Fairy Tales exist”, its tales are based on ‘The History of the Brothers Grimm’. ‘Grimm’, throughout its run, may not have garnered stellar ratings but it does have a loyal, core fanbase. So when it concluded with its sixth season in 2017, fans wanted to know if the show would be making a comeback yet again. Well, here’s all we know about ‘Grimm’ season 7.
Grimm Season 7 Release Date: Renewed or Cancelled?
‘Grimm’ season 6 premiered on NBC on January 6, 2017. After cutting down its run to 13 episodes, as compared to the previous five seasons that feature 22 episodes each, it concluded with its finale on March 31, 2017. And much to the disappointment of fans, NBC announced that the sixth season, which wrapped up with the 123rd episode, would be the final installment from the series.
According to star Reggie Lee, when asked about the show’s conclusion, “There were a lot of tears shed especially on our last filming day. All our veneers cracked. It was so hard to get a word out.” He also said that the story wraps up neatly and viewers would be happy with how the tale bids goodbye to its audiences. It offers proper closure and leaves no loose threads.
So, there you go. ‘Grimm’ season 7 stands officially canceled. But to cheer you up, here is a bit of good news. A spinoff of the fantasy drama is currently under works. It is written and executive produced by Melissa Glenn, primarily known for ‘Iron Fist‘, ‘Zoo‘ and ‘Beauty and the Beast’. Sean Hayes and Todd Milliner, EPs of the original title, returns to executive produce the spinoff and co-creators of the parent title, David Greenwalt and Jim Kouf, are credited as consulting producers. The new show dives deeper into the mythology of the original series and features returning fan favorites. There is a new female Grimm, new characters, new dangers, and new mysteries.
NBC has not come up with an official name or release date for the spinoff yet. But we shall add that to this section as soon as we learn more.
