“Grimm” does not have a grim future. During NBC’s TCA 2014 winter press tour executive session, the heads of NBC Entertainment programming say that the fan-favorite genre drama will likely be coming back for Season 4.
“I think the prospects for ‘Grimm’ are very, very good,” NBC Entertainment chairman Robert Greenblatt tells reporters. NBC Entertainment president Jennifer Salke adds, “They’re not grim.”
The reason for “Grimm’s” continued renewal? The fact that fans continue to tune in live.
“I think that the genre audience proves to be a very loyal one,” Greenblatt says of people watching “Grimm” when it airs live. “We like what we’re building on Friday night with ‘Grimm.'” He adds that he hopes it pairs well with Season 2 of “Hannibal.”
“Grimm” airs Fridays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on NBC.
