Grimm Chris McKenna Cast Season 6

Grimm Season 6 Taps State of Affairs' Chris McKenna to Play Portland Cop

There’s lots of movement in the Portland Police Department these days: In addition to Grimm‘s Capt. Renard leaving the force to become mayor, State of Affairs star Chris McKenna is joining the NBC supernatural drama as a “formidable” lieutenant, TVLine has learned.

McKenna will play Lt. Grossante, a “formidable and driven” an  “military-type” cop, per the official character description. McKenna, who announced his casting via Twitter on Tuesday, is officially signed on for one episode but will probably appear in more.

No word yet on whether or not Grossante is Wesen, but this is Grimm, so… you do the monster math.

McKenna’s extensive TV resumé includes stints on One Life to Live90210CastleNCIS: Los Angeles, Private Practice and The Young and the Restless. He most recently appeared as Dr. Hayden on The Bold and the Beautiful.

NBC has not yet announced when Grimm’s upcoming sixth season — which was trimmed to 13 episodes in April — will premiere. “There may or may not be more episodes. It may or may not be the last season. These are things we don’t yet know,” executive producer David Greenwalt told TVLine after the season finale. “We’re certainly thinking of arcs for next year, and then [the episode order] will determine how long it takes to do that.”

Comments are monitored, so don’t go off topic, don’t frakkin’ curse and don’t bore us with how much your coworker’s sister-in-law makes per hour. Talk smart about TV!

    “The Boldy and the Beautiful”

    I’ll certainly watch that.

  3. I still think Diana is a 40 year old “little person.”

    Glad to see him landing somewhere after his “Young and the Restless” death.

    I hope he shaves.

    I was concerned that “Grimm” was going to leave the audience in an emotional void; one where we had to invent the ending of the story, and I was not comfortable with that idea. I am very glad the series will continue, as least for a bit longer. One of the few series that I watch most all of the reruns over and over.

    I am so disappointed to hear this is the final season of Grimm (just announced). As soon as I get a show I really like, it gets cut. It’s stuff like this that makes me not commit to a show. #MAD #GETTINGRIDOFGOODTV #TIREDOFTHEEXECS
