'Grimm' canceled by NBC after upcoming final season
Grimm officially has an end date.
NBC has decided to cancel the fantasy drama after the upcoming season, the network announced Monday.
Unceremoniously burying the huge news about its long-running Friday night drama in a midseason debut dates press release, the network revealed the show’s sixth season will be its last.
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). Teases NBC, “it will take the full force of Nick and his allies to find a way to bring the peace.” The final season starts Jan. 6.
NBC also announced premiere dates for The New Celebrity Apprentice with new boardroom CEO Arnold Schwarzenegger (Jan. 2) and its long-delayed modern-day Wizard of Oz tale, Emerald City (Jan. 6).
Emerald City follows a 20-year-old Dorothy Gale (Adria Arjona) who’s transported to another world — a mystical land where an all-powerful ruler (Vincent D’Onofrio) governs over one kingdom, has outlawed magic, and faces not only the wrath of a growing cauldron of witches but a looming disaster brought on by a mythical force. Described as “epic, romantic, and fantastical, Emerald City is an empowering tale of a young woman finding her true strength and identity even as she battles to bring a divided world together.”
