Production for Season Two of GRIMM Commences on May 30


Production for season two of NBC’s fairy tale procedural drama GRIMM commences on Wednesday, May 30 in Portland.

GRIMM stars Russell Hornsby, Silas Weir Mitchell and Bitsie Tulloch will join Oregon Governor John Kitzhaber on May 29 to kick off production and celebrate another season of shooting in the northwest.

Also in attendance will be state legislators, members of the Governor's Office of Film and Television Board, NBC and Comcast officials as well as Oregon business owners who have benefited from the impact of local production.

Beginning Monday, May 28, NBC will run encore episodes of GRIMM every week at 10:00pm.

Season two of GRIMM will premiere in August.

“Grimm” is inspired by the classic Grimm’s Fairy Tales. Portland homicide Detective Nick Burkhardt (David Giuntoli, "Turn the Beat Around") discovers he is descended from an elite line of criminal profilers known as “Grimms,” charged with keeping balance between humanity and the mythological creatures of the world. As he tries to hide the dangers of his new found calling from his girlfriend, Juliette Silverton, (Bitsie Tulloch, “quarterlife”), and his partner, Hank Griffin (Russell Hornsby, “Lincoln Heights”), he becomes ever more entrenched in the ancient rivalries and alliances of the Grimm world.

With help from his confidant, Monroe (Silas Weir Mitchell, “Prison Break”), a reformed Grimm creature himself, Nick must navigate through the forces of a larger-than-life mythology, facing off with Hexenbiests, Blutbads and all manner of ancient evils, including royal lines dating back to the original profilers themselves, The Grimm Brothers. Reggie Lee (“Persons Unknown”) and Sasha Roiz (“Caprica”) also star.

“Grimm” is a Universal Television and Hazy Mills production. The series was created by Stephen Carpenter and David Greenwalt & Jim Kouf. Sean Hayes, Todd Milliner (“Hot In Cleveland”) and Norberto Barba (“Law & Order: Criminal Intent”) also serve as executive producers along with Greenwalt and Kouf.

    I would figure if NBC was promoting Grimm heavily during Olympics and starting the show in August that it would have moved from Friday Night.

    Jeez, last season, the show didn’t premiere until late October. This year, it starts in August. All season long, they randomly aired repeats with little notice. Way to go with trying to kill it, NBC.

    Does anyone have the email address for the production office?

  • Scripted Fan

    For those of you who have not seen this series, you are really missing science fiction at it’s best! Although it can be labeled “the monster of the week” show, this is truly different from anything except perhaps Once Upon a Time. However, it is a different take. It revolves around the stories from the Brothers Grimm in a unique, creative way. It has humor, drama, suspense, and “horror”. I strongly encourage sci-fi enthusiasts to watch!
