Major bummer for all fans of NBC’s police supernatural drama, Grimm. The series is being cancelled after its forthcoming sixth season, according to the network. According to Entertainment Weekly, the network was quietly burying the news of the Friday night drama’s fate until finally confirming that Season 6 — which will start January 6 — will be the last.
According to EW:
“The final season will have 13 episodes. Last season’s finale was aptly titled ‘The Beginning of the End’ (parts 1 and 2) and focused on how the nefarious forces of Black Claw were silenced and Nick (David Giuntoli) faced an all too familiar foe in Capt. Sean Renard (Sasha Roiz). Now in the seat of power as the mayor-elect of Portland, Renard is poised to bring rise to his own brand of law and order. Nick must take a stand to protect his city and those closest to him, especially his child with Adalind (Claire Coffee).”
NBC says the final season “will take the full force of Nick and his allies to find a way to bring the peace.”
Fans are understandably bummed by the news, tweeting their responses on social media.
All hope is not lost, though, as there’s always the chance the show will return in some form, as in on Netflix or Amazon. Here’s hoping the last season will be everything fans are hoping it will be.
