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 Live, 90210, Castle, NCIS: 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.”
