Cancellation Watch: Grimm’s Sixth Season Will Be Its Last, Emerald City Gets a Premiere Date, Plus the Ratings Roundup

By | August 31, 2016

Grimm_s6Final Season: NBC announced late yesterday that their supernatural procedural Grimm will be coming to an end with its sixth season. That news comes as no surprise seeing as the show slipped to all-time ratings lows in its fifth season. But since it has already made it past the syndication stretch, the network was guaranteed to recoup its costs on one more season once it hits its encore run. It was only renewed for thirteen episodes and I predicted at the time that would likely be its last. That was confirmed with yesterday’s announcement, but at least the show gets a chance to go out on its own terms. I’m sure that hard core fans would have liked for it to stick around a while longer, but surviving for six seasons and over one hundred episodes is a pretty rare thing for a genre show in the currently overcrowded television environment. The show will wrap up with 123 total episodes and will continue to live on in syndication reruns for years to come. NBC also announced Grimm‘s return date which will be at mid-season on January 6th, though it will be airing one hour earlier than it previously did at 8 PM EST.  Read the full article at our partner site CancelledSciFi.com.
