Bad news for "Grimm" fans: NBC has officially canceled the show, and the upcoming sixth season will be its last. The show has been rumored to be up for cancellation for a while now, and it looks like those rumors have come true. Some cast members have expressed their sentiments regarding the show's cancellation, and David Guintolli, who plays Nick, says that the final season would not be a "funeral season" but one that is filled with gratitude.
According to Variety, NBC made the official statement last Monday, letting fans know that "Grimm" season 7 will no longer air. Season 6, which premieres on Jan. 6, 2017, will be considered as the show's final season. The show premiered in 2011 and has since become a Friday night staple for NBC.
According to Silas Weir Mitchell, who portrays Monroe, there have been talks about having the series canceled for three years now. While speaking to TVLine, he said, "Like, is this the end? We don't know."
Initially, season 6 was reportedly granted 22 episodes, but NBC had it winded down to 13. The series does not have the most critical praise, however, with an IMDb score of 7.8 out of 10. Surely, it is hard to compete with a lot of other supernatural-themed shows like "Supernatural," "The Originals," and "Once Upon a Time."
Cast member Bree Turner, who plays Rosalee, has said that she is very grateful for the show and that it has been a "super fun ride." She also expressed that she has been very appreciative of how much the series has reached, considering that "Grimm" reached its 100th episode mark last April.
Season 6 will reportedly have Nick go head-to-head with the current Mayor of Portland, Capt. Renard (Sasha Roiz). He will have to bring all of his allies together in order to ensure peace in the town and the safety of his child.
The sixth and final season of "Grimm" will air this January.
