We still have three long weeks to wait before “Grimm” returns and we find out if “Constantine” is better than early reports seem to indicate (fingers crossed), and to help fill the time, NBC has released the official synopses for the former’s season premiere, Episode 4.01, “Thanks for the Memories,” and the latter’s series debut, Episode 1.01, “Non Est Asylum,” plus a new promo video touting the network’s “Friday Fright Night” and another “Constantine” teaser titled “Seeking Redemption.”
Evil has a new enemy in “Grimm” and “Constantine,” premiering October 24th on NBC.
