Reboots and revivals are currently on TV, as are spin-offs. You can now add the NBC series Grimm to the list in the last mentioned category. With six seasons, the original series has completed its run in the spring of 2017. While the crowd misses the show, NBC seems to be fine too. More than a year after its demise, the Peacock Network is in the early stages of developing a Grimm spinoff, and the lead role will not just be another of the guys.
That's not the only good news Grimm fans! The spin-off hopes that the fan favorites from the original series will come back. Who returns at the very end is still unknown at this time. The original leads are currently busy with new projects. David Giuntoli, who played Nick, plays ABC A Million Little Things . His co-star Russell Hornsby, who played Hank, also plays in a freshman series. Hornsby is in Fox's upcoming drama, Proven Innocent .
If one or both of these series are not permanent, maybe the actors might become available. While his leads may be off the table at the time, NBC is looking for original Cast members in the cast, whether regular or recurring. At this time, no actors are involved in the spin-off. The goal is to include both new and recurrent characters in the show. Well, that's not a revival of the original, as you might have guessed.
In a departure from the original series, Deadline says that they hear that the diversion will focus on a female lead role. Iron Fist Melissa Glenn will fill the show. Since the spinoff wants to bring back characters from the original, we can surmise that the spinoff after Grimm & # 39; s final will probably not go that far into the future. Or at least you would not think.
Since the show is in the early stages of development, a release date has not been set. If the spin-off fund resumes, there is a potentially safe bet where NBC could bet. That would be Friday. The original series was a tremendous success that night.
Given the history of Grimm in the time frame, it would make sense to set the spin-off here as well. It would also make the spinoff a sturdy companion to the supernatural drama Midnight, Texas . This series is preparing for the second season. Should it come to a third, Midnight, Texas and the Grimm spinoff could make the Fridays quite supernatural for NBC.
The idea of building the foundation of the original series should serve the spin-off well. Grimm grew loyal during his 6-season run. The chance to see some of the characters they love would be huge for them. In the meantime, NBC will have tons of fall premieres to keep you busy.
