NBC Renews Grimm for a Fifth Season; No Update on Constantine
NBC announced today which shows it’s renewing for the 2015-16 season, and the one that caught our attention was fan favorite “Grimm,” which will be returning for a fifth season. Can you say “no-brainer”?
The other genre series on the network, “Constantine,” was not mentioned in the press release so stay tuned!
A Friday night success story, “Grimm” has averaged a 2.1 rating, 7 share in adults 18-49, and 7.2 million viewers overall so far this season, making it Friday’s #1 scripted series in 18-49 on the Big 4 networks. “Grimm” is one of the most time-shifted shows on broadcast television, with its originals growing by an average of +83% going from “live plus same day” Nielsens to “live plus seven day.”
“Grimm” is inspired by the classic Grimm Brothers’ fairy tales. The series stars David Giuntoli as Portland homicide detective Nick Burkhardt, who discovers he’s descended from an elite line of criminal profilers known as Grimms and increasingly finds his responsibilities as a detective at odds with his new responsibilities as a Grimm.
The series, from Universal Television and Hazy Mills Productions, also stars Russell Hornsby, Bitsie Tulloch, Silas Weir Mitchell, Reggie Lee, Sasha Roiz, Bree Turner, and Claire Coffee.
Congrats to everyone involved with the show! We’ll be celebrating by tuning in tomorrow night.
