Grimm Renewed for Season 2 by NBC

grimmTV Line is reporting that NBC has become the first non-CBS net to issue an early renewal for next season. Getting the early go-ahead for another year is Grimm, the supernatural procedural from David Greenwalt (Buffy the Vampire Slayer) and Jim Kouf (Angel). It’s been a tough season for NBC, but Grimm has provided a little spark, exceeding ratings expectations and giving them a foothold on Fridays. In its most recent episode, the show earned a 1.5 in the 18-49 demo, with its season-high being a 2.1 for its October premiere.

Grimm tells the story of Nick Burkhardt (David Giuntoli), a Portland detective that discovers he’s descended from a long line of creature hunters known as the Grimm. With the aid of reformed big bad wolf Monroe (Silas Weir Mitchell), Nick has to begin learning about his other identity and the consequences of being born into such a feared stock of people. He can’t let his girlfriend Juliette (Bitsie Tulloch) in on his new life, at least not yet, but his reputation is spreading for being a skilled hunter and there’s only so much he can shield her before he has to let her in. The show also features Russell Hornsby as Nick’s partner at Portland PD, Reggie Lee as a sergeant and one of Nick’s co-workers, and Sasha Roiz as the police captain that has ties to the Wesen world.

Grimm airs Friday nights at 9:00, though it’s currently on hiatus until March 30th. If you missed my review over last week’s episode, which included dragons and long-needed introductions, you can check it out here.

Do you think Grimm has improved since the beginning of the season? How are you liking the show embracing serialization? What do you hope to see out of a second season?
