Your fairy tales are about to get freshened up.
Though Grimm‘s Season 5 premiere will pick up exactly where the finale left off — with Nick cradling Juliette’s lifeless body — an “immense new storyline” will sweep in moments later and take the NBC series in a completely different direction, according to star David Giuntoli.
“There is a no-BS kind of reboot,” he added when he and castmates Reggie Lee, Bree Turner, Silas Weir Mitchell, Claire Coffee, Russell Hornsby and Sasha Roiz stopped by TVLine’s Comic-Con interview suite at the Hard Rock Hotel.
Mitchell reassured fans that Grimm 2.0 will mix “old school mythology stuff” (like the key mystery) with new elements (like the beefed-up presence of the FBI and Elizabeth Rodriguez’s Agent Chavez). Along the way, Nick and Adalind, who Coffee said had “the most dysfunctional start you can have to a relationship,” may find themselves growing closer as they figure out how to handle the impending birth of their child.
Speaking of babies, isn’t it about time for Monrosalee to pop out some furry little ones? Get Mitchell and Turner’s takes on that — and much more — when you press PLAY on the video above.
