Grimm Season 6 Spoilers Rosalee Baby

Grimm Season 6: Cast, EPs Talk 'Great Sorrow and Great Hope' in Final Run

You may be sad that Grimm‘s final season is half as long as its previous ones… but the supernatural series’ showrunners sure aren’t.

“There was a chance that we would have gotten 22 [episodes], and we were going, ‘Oh my God,'” James Kouf says, laughing. He and his fellow showrunner, David Greenwalt, are sitting on folding chairs just outside one of Grimm‘s main stages in Portland., Ore., taking advantage of a break in filming the NBC drama’s penultimate episode to chat with visiting reporters. “That’s a long trek,” Greenwalt adds. “We did that for five years.”

“You know,” adds Kouf, “123 times through the fairy-tale world, and you start getting a little slim.”

Later, inside the set that serves as Nick’s Spartan loft, David Giuntoli sits near the kitchen and fields questions from those gathered around Burkhardt’s dinner table. The series’ lead — who makes his directorial debut with this season’s third hour — points out how grateful the cast is that Grimm‘s end came with plenty of notice.

“First of all, it was very lovely to be able to get a final anything in life where you know it’s the final anything. It doesn’t just get pulled out from under you, so that was nice,” he says, chuckling. “I like to call it the Oregon, death-with-dignity, kind-of-our-hospice run.”

Gallows humor aside, Kouf and Greenwalt say they had just enough “energy and the clarity and the creativity to push us through 13 great episodes” (premiering Friday, Jan. 6) and tease that the final three are “one giant movie.”

Silas Weir Mitchell swears that longtime viewers will be happy with the farewell tour. “I think [the writers are] trying to answer questions for the people that have stuck with us, man,” he says. “The fans have stuck with us from this night to that night and this time to that time. They deserve answers. They deserve the satisfaction of an ending.”

But what’ll happen before that ending arrives? Here are a bunch of teases gleaned from our visit to the set:

♦ As teased in TVLine’s Winter Preview, a new enemy will show up about halfway through the season.

♦ The final season is full of the show’s hallmark nighttime scenes in the great outdoors. “It’s lot of that feeling of the great, black forest/Portland look that we always loved and the fairy tale aspect of that,” Greenwalt says.

♦ Among the season’s call-backs to previous episodes: “I’ll say this: There will be a Hummel figurine,” Greenwalt teases.

♦ A cagey Bree Turner addresses our curiosity about Rosalee’s pregnancy by saying: “There’s been a few incidences where, yeah, some fake bellies have come out. But also, but we’ve been real time, you know, from the finale of last season. So in these 13 episodes, it’s only technically 6 weeks. But they have done a couple creative choices, through storytelling, that are really fun.”

♦ Perhaps related to the previous bullet, perhaps not, Greenwalt previews, “There’s a very interesting time jump at the very end. There is some playing with time.”

♦ Nick shows an unnatural attachment to the magic stick at the beginning of the season, and the feeling may be mutual. So, is it his preciousssssss? “Not entirely so much as you might begin to suspect from the beginning, but yeah, because this is too powerful for human hands to hold,” Greenwalt says. The EPs also promise that “the stick definitely figures through the whole thing” and that any questions raised “will be answered.”

Lastly, how about an early tease for the series finale? “We’re leaving it in a good place,” Greenwalt says. “Great sorrow and great hope, you know?” Claire Coffee adds, “Everything’s tied up. There are great reminders of why everybody liked the show to begin with and what really endeared the show to people. All of that comes back, tenfold.”

Grimm returns for its final season on Friday, Jan. 6, at 8/7c.

    We need for the industry to continue series via TV movies, as before. The husband and I just can’t let go of Grimm.

      >>>We need for the industry to continue series via TV movies, as before. The husband and I just can’t let go of Grimm.<<<
      Really? I like the show, but it's more of a very paint by numbers supernatural show. It's always been so average its scary.

      • Haz says:

        All these type of shows including Buffy and The X-Files have many similarities. The difference for me is Buffy and The X-Files I was able to stay until the end, even though without David on X-Files and season 7 of Buffy were hard to get through, Grimm I dropped about a year and a half ago. I think the last episode I watched as a regular viewer was the Christmas episode of 2014. I will probably watch the last season though. I think between the female Grimm and everyone knowing that Nick is a Grimm, something just felt different, and off. Either way I’m glad NBC is giving it a proper send off between it starting so late, and then the holidays, half the time I would never know when it was new or not, and Hulu would only have the last 5 at a time. That being said Grimm showed it had a very loyal and dedicated fan base.

      • PatriciaLee says:

        Egad…after a year like this one, so average is so soothing and so enjoyable. Just pass me the Grimm bubbly, and I’m cruising in happy land. The husband’s one 2017 TVLand wish was for Grimm to continue. In its heart, the show has a cleverness, perhaps a reflection of the original Grimm brothers.

  2. AW says:

    Grimm needs to evolve into a new series called “Grimms & Wiesens”.

  3. Jason says:

    I hope Hank finally gets a love interest that does not try to kill him and the show gets back to its lighter roots. it was too dark last season

  4. Daniel Quan says:

    I’m going to miss watching Grimm on TV! I really don’t know why that show is officially going off the air in January!

  5. thedimono says:

    Don’t put the spoilers in the title line, you a-holes. I googled to see whether there would be a season 6, and the first thing I saw was a spoiler I didn’t want to see. Thanks for ruining it for me.

    • Brigid says:

      What are you talking about? No spoilers at all. Rosalee found out she was pregnant last season. Weirdo, keep up!

  6. This ain’t cool man. I am gonna miss this show so much. It was one of the highlights of my Friday night’s. My only question is will they be able to wrap up all of the storylines, Nick’s zombie powers among others.

  7. queensgirl says:

    I can’t wait for it to return.

  8. burnscindy says:

    I still want a Monroe/Rosalee spinoff.

  9. csg says:

    This has been such an entertaining series with a fascinating premise, wonderful cast, action, comedy, & drama. I’m going to enjoy every episode of season 6 very happy that the ending will not be abrupt, but planned by producers & writers who appreciated their fans.

  10. Luis Roman says:

    OK, first, I want Juliette back by the time this is wrapped up, second, i want to see Monroe and Rosalee’s baby woge one time and, finally, can we just get Hank a woman who doesn’t try to kill him?

  11. Philip says:

    I am going to miss this show when it goes. The time has gone by so quickly. I’ve even got my mom watching this program and she is not usually into shows of this nature.

  12. JenJ says:

    I personally prefer Juliet as the ass-kicker she was last season, it made her much more palatable to watch as a character, and made her not a victim.
    I also hope that they get Nick & Adalind back together, they were a total surprise who I never expected to like as a couple, but they were really great together.
    Please do not make the captain a bad guy again, he is so hot, I sure will miss seeing him every week.
    Let Monroe & Rosalee have a happy life, it almost brings me to tears to realize I’m not going to be seeing them for much longer anymore, I already miss my weekly dose of the couple. They are so much fun!
    And last, but not least, give Hank a real love-life, he deserves a real, live woman. And get rid of Woo’s curse, pulleasssse…

    • Jacob says:

      Agree with you completely I liked eve a lot more than Juliet she was bad ass also Nick and adline was great I loved them one of the best love stories I’ve seen in a long time really hope there the end game and them and Kelly an Diana can be a family

  13. jane waugh says:

    Love you guys but devastated to hear the end has came! Plze say there’s a chance at a later date for a possible series at a much later date?? I will b lost!Ha! Looking forward to watching series 6 and some final answers!! Well done u lot going to miss you all (BIG STYLE) xxx

  14. Melanie Reyne says:

    Best show on TV! I’m so sad they are ending. A spinoff would be grand!

  15. William says:

    NBC please give more seasons / episodes to the public that both this series, the best series I’ve seen in life, do this favor to your viewer who loves this series, request of a Brazilian who loves this series.

  16. Dee says:

    I as my fellow GRIMsters are so upset that this show was pulled it was fresh and not the boring hospital cops and robbers or family crap type show. I’m am gonna miss it

  17. Leila De Jesus says:

    Why in the world are they taking this great show off the air? Is there anything we can do as fans?

  18. Vicki says:

    Keep Grimm on… love the show

  19. NBC canceled my GRIMM……so i am CANCELING NBC the entire worthless network will be deleted from 1700 family and friends tv’s …….and of course my own tv…..

  20. Julie says:

    It’s such a great cast, all the really good shows have a cast that melds. These actors make the show enjoyable because they are all interesting. I don’t mean to skip over all the writers, directors and other essential personnel contribute because they of course make it come together and work. My husband is generally a guy that watches stuff much less outside the realm of reality, but him and I have loved this show from the start. We are so sorry to say goodbye to it,please keep it going or let Netflix or something give it another chance.

  21. Brittney says:

    I love grimm such a great cast n always leaving u wanting to watch more

  22. Sanieserabjit says:

    Grimm is the only show I watch on NBC, really going to miss it. Wedding bells for Nick and Adalind? The captain and Juliette, Hank and some gorgeous lady, Wu a kick ass crime fighter.

  23. C.K. says:

    I love Grimm and am very sad to see it go. It is far better than Buffy. That one I couldn’t stay with past a half year. Very teen aged. Grimm is more grown up. I am glad they are giving us an ending, unlike Witches of East End, where we were left hanging.

  24. Ana says:

    If this has to be the final season a least let there be 22 episodes of grimm. I love this show and I am very sad to see it go… great cast… …I will miss you all….love a total fan of Grimm……… thankyou 😄

  25. Carolyn says:

    I do not want this series to end! It has been a wonderful series. My husband and I are saddened it is ending.

  26. queen says:

    awww, man. the absolute ONLY series my kids and I watch…. minimal sex scenes, cussing, etc…and it teaches my young daughters that everyone has a gift, and that ppl who are different are still ppl… one of the best series EVER!

  27. Jim says:

    I really like the show, and, the actors. If the show must end at least keep the actors working. I am sure they will be great in anything they put their talents to. I like to read more than watch TV because one has more time to develop the character. Not so with these actors. They have made the characters real. Thank you.

  28. Judy Yip says:

    Love Grimm and the cast. Sorry to see that there will not be a Season 7.

  29. Barb says:

    going to miss Grimm. Sorry to see it go! Monroe is my favorite character.

  30. you should have continued the season thru the whole time asked for ideas from viewers

  31. DEE says:

    I am a huge fan of Grimm and have been since it first premiered. I have always make sure that I was home to watch it. I am very sad that NBC is going to cancel the show. I think the producers if given the opportunity can continue their creativity with all the characters. I will miss seeing Grimm on Fridays and hope at some point that NBC decides to put the show back on.

  32. i am so sad i have watch every episode since it started like renard hate renard i wonder if the stars are going to other jobs we need a movie

  33. Carolyn Walker says:

    We absolutely love “Grimm”. Both my husband and I watch this show weekly even though Friday is our date night. My biggest hope is that by the end of the series, Juliette and Nick are back together. What happened to her was because she loved Nick and Adalind started all this. Adalind shouldn’t be rewarded with Nick.
    I also love Rosalee and Eugene. I want to see their new show.
    Thanks for Grimm. It was an original show and very well conceived and written.

    • Cricket says:

      Thank you so much for saying that Carolyn. We seem to be the only ones who think Adalind doesn’t deserve Nick. Juliette did nothing wrong and they gave her the short end of the stick. I agree that Eve is more interesting, but I like this Eve/Juliette combo personality she has going on now. It pissed me off how when Juliette turned into a hexenbeist that Nick couldn’t look her, but he can look at Adalind?! WTF! I feel like we won’t get our way. So I have written my own story-ending. It goes like this, Because Adalind was Juliette when she got pregnant that Kelly is actually Juliette’s kid and Adalind reverts back to her evil ways and ends up with Renard or dead! And also, mom Kelly is alive and comes to Julieve’s defense. End scene.

      • Jess B says:

        Cricket, if I could pay you to write this in to the show, I would. As soon as Adiland was pregnant with Nick’s baby and they were all cool with that and Juliette was just out after all these seasons and support, I’m done. I quit watching. Would definitely come back for this.

  34. Sharon says:

    Love Grimm show, sad to see it end. All the characters are memorable and interesting. Monroe and Rosalee are my favorites, followed closely by Nick and the rest of the gang. Hated seeing Trubble leave so soon. She was an enigma and well enjoyed. Many blessing to the whole cast in finding new interesting work.

  35. Pam says:

    This is my all time favorite series, and I hate the fact that it’s been cancelled!! I couldn’t wait for the next episode b/c it was always different. The cast of characters are phenomenal. I wish Netflix would pick it up because I really hate to see it go. There’s nothing else on TV that plays the way this show does.

  36. Natasha C Williams says:

    I am dying a little on the inside. Grimm has been one of those shows that you wish could last for a very long time, it just haven’t been enough time:(
    Gonna miss you Grimm

  37. elaine bromley says:

    Grim got better!

  38. WW says:

    I am so sad that Grimm is canceled. I live in SW WA and love the honest scenery, the places are real, even though the show is fantasy. I am and always will be a fan of “monsters & heroes”. Get rid of reality TV instead of fantasy.

  39. WW says:

    I am so sad that Grimm is canceled. I live in SW WA and love the honest scenery, the places are real, even though the show is fantasy. I am and always will be a fan of “monsters & heroes”. Get rid of reality TV instead of a great show like Grimm.

  40. Margaretome says:

    We loved this show from the start! & talked many frds & family to become avid fans also. So sorry to see it end!! Good luck in the future to all those involved with the series. Nothing to watch on friday nite now!

  41. Rosie worthen says:

    Are there any talks about Netflix or Amazon picking up and continuing this show ? Very disappointed it is coming to an end.

  42. J ayers says:

    Don’t end we love the grim

  43. Vicky says:

    Big disappointment in series finale, promised two hour final got 1, so many things not tied up. It is like someone got bored and left the writing table, after 6 seasons deserved more than we got.

  44. JS says:

    I am so sad that grimm is over. It is a great show don’t let it end come back with them all & the kids. It would be a hit having the kids playing in the movie. And where Rosedale babyies.

  45. Tequila audain says:

    am so sad that grimm finish today omg i cried at the end when I saw kelly and diana grow up kelly looks like nick so cute i wish u got have continue the season that make my birthday coming up be happy bye and lov all of the grimm cast peace

  46. Debra Gordon says:
