A female-led spinoff of NBC's Grimm is in the works

Once upon a time, there lived a supernatural television series by the name of GRIMM on NBC. After six seasons of vanquishing evil, taming fantastic beasts, and delivering a dark spin on some of the most beloved fairy tale characters of all time, the show came to an end. Now, a whisper has come on the wind with news of a female-led GRIMM spinoff being in the works from Universal TV and Sean Hayes and Todd Milliner’s studio-based Hazy Mills Productions.

Spinning out of the events and mythology of GRIMM, sources close to the project are saying that the new show will feature a female Grimm, as well as fan favorite characters from the original series. Furthermore, the spinoff will also introduce several new characters to the lore, as well as new villains, creatures, riddles, and dangers set to lurk within every dark corner of the Grimmverse. For the moment, no new cast members have been named, though with word of the concept now being out in the wild, I'm sure that we can expect an update sooner rather than later.

For those of you who've yet to check out the original series, GRIMM centered on a Portland Homicide detective named Nick Burkhardt (David Giuntoli), who after a bizarre experience learns that he's a Grimm, a guardian of legend sworn to uphold the balance between humanity and the mythological world thought to only exist in fables. Despite keeping a low-profile during its six season run, GRIMM shined as one of NBC's highest-rated programs, despite its competitive Friday time slot. With a female-led spinoff now in active development, it may only be a matter of time before GRIMM makes a grand return to the pop culture zeitgeist that kept the show alive and well for so long. Here's hoping that the new show still has some weird and wonderful stories to tell when another chapter of GRIMM arrives.
