  • That is not a fixed number, as I hear the pickup is for a minimum of 13 episodes, with a likelihood for more.

    • Basically it is confirmed that is the last season :(

    • It may be the last season but this is a scheduling issue. NBC has too many dramas so of course the non-Friday shows have to be scheduled first with their higher ratings.

      Less breaks and less filler Wesen of the Week episodes.

    • I hope if we are only getting 13 episodes they go full out with bringing new wesen like multiple wesen an Episode and bringing old wesen back that we have only seen once cough cough Jagerbar cough cough

    • This news intially was heartbreaking for me to hear, but reading the article above, and thinking a bit more about it, I don't think it's nearly as bad.  Of course, for me, more Grimm is always a good thing, but I've heard the cast comment numerous times how difficult it can be to write for a 22-episode season and that the 22-season order is likely going to become a thing of the past over the next few years.  So with that in mind, it might actually help the writers a bit to have a shorter season to write for, at least initially.  Hopefully Season 6 does extend from 13 to 22 episodes, but it could be that if it does, it will almost feel like two seasons in one, with a lot happening in both the first 13 episodes, and then quite a bit also happening over the next 9.  We'll see how things play out, but personally, I think Season 6 will end up being 22 episodes with a "two seasons in one" kind of feel to it, which isn't necessarily a bad thing.

      Maybe you are right. By the way, you guys saw Bitsie's vlog?

      I was thinking the same thing.  Sometimes 13 is good because you work quicker to solve storylines. And if that's the case, they could getmore eps.  But I agree; it does seem like this will be its final season.

    • I'm hoping for 16-22 episodes in the end. If there end up being more than 13 and this is the final season, I really hope NBC gives the writers a heads up so they can end the show on their terms.

        Loading editor
    • Agree.  The show has served the network well.  It should have a proper ending.

    • I hope they'll give Nick's kid a sequel series after his dad.

      It'll be about Kelly and Diana who fight for the future of both humanity & wesen. Their quarrel will be like Dante & Vergil from Devil May Cry.

      I'm still believeing Kel will do it alone, and enough with the Dante and Vergil references, they're running low on steam when you keep mentioning the same people.

      Sorry.

      I feel for Diana and Kelly being enemies.

      Kel could surely get some of his own backup after his old man's.

      It's just that for the kids, Diana feels addicted to the power while Kelly... that's for us to find out. But I'm sure he'll be a kind and loving person like his dad. He'll use his powers to protect those he cares about.

      Just think about the past midseason finales, kind of like the same thing with two seasons in one.

      But I agree, sounds like it's gonna be the last season...

    • I hate Renard and Adalind and Diana is both of them in one so no doubt she will cause something very very bad to happen in her lifetime so I would all be for Kelly becoming a Grimm and destroying Diana and her stupid biestness!

    • I think it would be good if Grimm did only 13 episodes, it would give more drama, and more of the episodes won't feel like filler.

      If they do can cancel it maybe Netflix will take it.

      I cannot speculate without any confirmation, but one of the reasons that NBC may have shortened the sixth season to 13 episodes is because this could be the last season. However it could also be because they have not announced their new Fall lineups yet either, they have too many dramas, etc. Giuntoli indicated in one interview (http://zap2it.com/2015/11/david-giuntoli-reveals-upcoming-death-of-a-grimm-cast-member-no-character-is-safe/) that he hopes to work on as many future Grimm seasons as he can. I don't think he has any intention of leaving the show to do other projects quite yet. Could they also be shortening the number of episodes to follow the same trend as the length of each season for shows like Game of Thrones? I have always found that shows, like Mad Men, tend to do better with fewer episodes per season. This should be a trend that most tv shows follow, having 13-16 episodes per season instead of 22-23 episodes per season because it gives the actors more break time, more time to promote the show,  more focus when they return on set, and the writers more time to whittle out the story. Ultimately, I would love for Grimm to have more seasons as well!

    • If any of you watch the FB chat with Bitsie she mentioned that they might find out next week about more info if its more than 13 episodes.  Maybe NBC wants to tally the #s...

    • I really wish they cast will mention that they'll have a series for Kelly at the end of their show. It'd be sweet to see him develop as a Grimm detective and protector of Wesen like his father.

      And that depend if Diana survives.

    • What do you base your idea that a show about Kelly would be interesting. We have seen half zauberbiest only have strength. For Kelly to use his strength he would need to be grown. It is not like being a grimm is a profession. Unlike Diana who before she was born was doing things. She was an actual character. The only thing Kelly has done is look cute. Not much to build a character on

    • The reply is to the speculation of Kelly being the focus of the story after the thirteen. There has to be a reason to go beyond thirteen. Additional  episodes would need some reason other then show wrap up. The thirteen will cover that. To go beyond thirteen they could be creating a spin off. Or a remake of the show.  Instead of grimm they could create the show wesen. Show how being west is an advantage. The previous post was using additional episodes to create a spin off. A spin off featuring Kelly.

    • David Giuntoli said today that season 6 will premiere either late October like normal, or not until January. Depending on which month, we'll be able to get a pretty good idea of how many episodes the season will consist of. If it doesn't premiere until January, then there will probably only be 13 episodes or maybe a few more. Probably no more than 16. October still keeps the hope alive of a full 22 episode season.

    • The group going into season 6 do not seemed as excited as the start of other seasons. I would have expected by know there would be a lot of banter of what to expect Next season. There would be the buzz to guide the furture direction of the show. David has been pushing lthe last season ida. Yet he has not speculated if there even is an end game. Let alone what it is.

    • The buzz doesn't usually start until Comic Con, which Grimm's panel is on the 23rd this year.

    • Maybe we'll make a petition after 6th season that we want the extantion of this universe. maybe spin off or something.

    • so far I have not seen any shows that where renewed for more then 13 episodes.  I think the networks are doing something different in the way they schedule.  The are a lot of new shows coming out. 

        Loading editor
    • I think also that the show will end after 13 episodes. Take for example person of interest. It's always about quotes and money.
