“Grimm” fan can expect a sixth season of the popular fantasy sci-fi series, NBC made the confirmation of renewal earlier today. The announcement was made by Jennifer Salke, President, NBC Entertainment.
“We absolutely love what our producers and cast have accomplished over the past five seasons,” Salke said. “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.”
This season, “Grimm” originals are averaging 6.4 million viewers overall in “live plus seven day” results from Nielsen Media Research.
“Grimm” is one of the most time-shifted series on the broadcast networks, growing by an average of +90% in adult 18-49 rating and more than 2.4 million viewers overall, going from “live plus same day” to “live plus seven day” Nielsens.
One of the more interesting facts from today’s announcements, “Grimm” is indexing at a 111 among adults 18-49 living homes with $100K+ incomes (with 100 representing an average concentration of those high-income homes). So advertisers might be more incline to hit up the series next year to peddle their goods and services.
In the upcoming episodes, the nefarious forces of Black Claw will take hold of Portland. Nick (David Giuntoli) must take a stand to protect his city and those closest to him, especially his child with Adalind (Claire Coffee). The network teases, “It will take the full force of Nick and his allies to find a way to bring the Wesen uprising to a halt.”
Now that Capt. Sean Renard (Sasha Roiz) is poised to make his move to power, his allegiance to Nick will be tested and he will consider drastic measures to ensure his place of authority.
“Grimm” also stars Russell Hornsby, Bitsie Tulloch, Silas Weir Mitchell, Reggie Lee and Bree Turner.
