NBC has given freshman fantasy drama Grimm an early pick-up for a second season.
The procedural has been turning in solid numbers on Friday nights, with an average of 4.8 million weekly viewers and a 1.5 rating in the important Adults 18-49 demographic. Series writer Akela Cooper broke the big news on Twitter today.
TV Line reports that Grimm most recently turned in 5.2 million viewers and an astonishing 87 percent ratings increase from DVR-delayed viewing (Live + 7 Days).
Grimm stars David Giuntoli as Nick Burkhardt, a detective in Portland, Oregon who learns that he is a Grimm — giving him the ability to see creatures living among us for what they really are.
The series had something of a rough start creatively, in my opinion, but has picked up its game in recent weeks. Here’s hoping that the mythology of Grimm gets a little deeper, the relationships a little more complicated, and the monsters a little less goofy.
