This announcement is ‘grimm’ so please bear with us.
NBC’s police procedural/fairy-tale series, Grimm, will end next year when its upcoming sixth season comes to a close. On Monday, the network announced a January 6th, 2017 premiere date, a shift from the original October 28th date. This means fans of the series will have to wait even longer to say goodbye.
There were signs pointing to the show’s end back in April, after their anticipated 22-episode season became 13. But that’s not the only change. In seasons past, the show began at 9PM, but with the upcoming season, it will begin at 8PM.
Some of the cast and crew took to Twitter to confirm the show’s end:
Don't be sad. We had a spectacular run with the best cast and the hardest-working crew in the business.
This isn't a funeral. It's a party.

While we're sad to announce the 6th season will be our last, we're thrilled to be going out with a bang. 'Til 1/6..? pic.twitter.com/O6HIfcULsn

David Guintoli and Claire Coffee, who portray main characters Nick Burkhardt and Adalind Scharde respectively, posted pictures on Instagram thanking their fans for their continuous support.
Fans of the show shouldn’t be too upset for losing their source of fantasy on Friday nights. Immediately following Grimm’s premiere is the two-hour premiere of Emerald City, NBC’s newest fantasy-drama series inspired by L. Frank Baum’s Land of Oz book series.
Grimm, which first premiered back in October 2011, celebrated its 100th episode milestone last season.
