NBC has given Grimm a full season pickup. The peacock will also try it out in the more competitive Thursday time slot.
The full season order follows the recent incremental script order.
NBC Entertainment chairman Robert Greenblatt said, in announcing the news:
“We are very pleased to be making a full-season commitment for Grimm. This series is turning the traditional procedural drama on its head and is attracting a loyal following for us on Friday nights. We love where it’s going creatively and we’re excited to deliver more episodes to our audience.”
So confident are the network about the show, they’re going to try it out in the super competitive Thursday 10/9c time slot on Dec. 8. This will be followed by another new episode the following night in its original time slot.
I’m still waiting for Grimm to engage its serialized arc. Haven’t seen enough in that department so far, but it remains on the Seriable Potential list.
