Our favorite supernatural series is coming to an end.

NBC has announced that Grimm will return with its sixth and final season on Friday, January 6 at 8pm ET/PT.

The series will close with the battle we’ve all been waiting for: Nick vs. Captain Renard.

As for events leading into the final season, the nefarious forces of Black Claw have been silenced and Nick (David Giuntoli) faces an all too familiar foe in Capt. Sean Renard (Sasha Roiz). Now in the seat of power as the mayor-elect of Portland, Renard is poised to bring rise to his own brand of law and order. Nick must take a stand to protect his city and those closest to him, especially his child with Adalind (Claire Coffee). It will take the full force of Nick and his allies to find a way to bring the peace.

Meanwhile, Monroe (Silas Weir Mitchell) and Rosalee (Bree Turner) grapple with bringing a child into a new and tumultuous world, and Eve (Bitsie Tulloch) faces unsettling identity issues as her former self-lurks below the surface. Russell Hornsby and Reggie Lee will also star in the final season.

Grimm reached the 100-episode milestone last season but was cut from 22 episodes to 13 for the upcoming sixth season which had us all wondering if it would even have legs for a seventh.

The series was created by David Greenwalt & Jim Kouf and Stephen Carpenter. Sean Hayes and Todd Milliner (Hollywood Game Night, Hot in Cleveland) serve as executive producers along with Greenwalt and Kouf. “Grimm” is a Universal Television and Hazy Mills production.

There’s a new Biest in town and she’s a creepy little kid named Diana. Oh, and she happens to be Sean and Adalind’s daughter who was given to the resistance as a baby for protection from the Royal family. Not sure if that much time has gone by or if she’s like the baby from Twilight that just grew up real fast, but she’s big and has purple glowing eyes and everything.

Anyways, Adalind has GOT to tell Nick about her being a Hexenbiest again and the fact that Diana is back. I mean, she’s keeping one too many secrets from him and if she wants to stay in a relationship or whatever it is that they’re doing, then she has to come clean.

Meanwhile, Wu is legit turning into a Wesen. Here’s hoping Rosalee can come up with some sort of herbal remedy to reverse it or something.

Grimm airs Fridays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on NBC.

The official synopsis for “The Taming of the Wu”:

BLACK CLAW CLOSES IN AS WU’S PRIMAL INSTINCTS TAKE CENTER STAGE – SHAUN TOUB, SHARON LEAL, DAMIEN PUCKLER AND JACQUELINE TOBONI GUEST STAR – Suffering from the bite he sustained, Sgt. Wu (Reggie Lee) becomes entangled in a surprising altercation that may land him in hot water. After meeting the mysterious Bonaparte (guest star Shaun Toub), Adalind (Claire Coffee) is faced with a difficult decision that could change her and Nick’s (David Giuntoli) lives forever. Meanwhile, Hank (Russell Hornsby) gets even closer to Zuri (guest star Sharon Leal) and their relationship begins to take shape. Back at HW, Eve (Bitsie Tulloch) senses that a new force may jeopardize the entire operation. Silas Weir Mitchell, Sasha Roiz and Bree Turner also star.

Grimm is definitely firing on all cylinders…and I can barely keep up.

Adalind is a Hexenbiest again but still hasn’t told Nick. Although he knows because Rosalee told him even though she told Adalind to! Ugh it’s all so complicated. Plus, Adalind started working again at the same law firm she used to work at back in the day when she and Nick first met. However, I didn’t know that the law firm, or at least the partners were Wesen, did you? So they’re letting her come back because she’s a Hexenbiest? I feel like this is turning into an episode of Angel!

Anyways, let’s not forget about Eve and how she’s remembering her life with Nick when she was Juliette. She’s being very protective of him and even went to his home and confronted Adalind, telling her not to hurt him now that she’s a Hexenbiest again. She’s also using that weird creepy potion out of the witches hat to turn herself into Sean Renard so she can find out what he knows about Black Claw. Speaking of Sean, Diana is back! How did that press woman find her? Man, does she have good connections.

Meanwhile, something is happening to Wu. We’re not exactly sure, but I think it’s from when he was scratched by that Lycanthropia a few episodes back. They’ve been playing it up very slowly, but I’m hoping we find out soon.

Grimm airs Fridays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on NBC.

The official synopsis for “Good to the Bone”:

A WESEN WITH A TERRIFYING APPETITE TERRORIZES PORTLAND – SHARON LEAL GUEST STARS – When a man is found dead with all of the bones in his body seemingly liquefied and removed, Nick (David Giuntoli) and Hank (Russell Hornsby) find themselves in the middle of a gruesome family arrangement. Meanwhile, Wu (Reggie Lee) deals with a crisis of his own and Hank reunites with his old flame, Zuri (guest star Sharon Leal). Silas Weir Mitchell, Sasha Roiz, Reggie Lee, Bree Turner and Claire Coffee also star.

This week’s episode of Grimm sets a lot of things in motion for what’s to come for the rest of the season.

Monroe receives a call in the middle of the night from a relative who found something that Nick might be interested in. Something that might connect everything that’s happening between the Hadrian’s Wall and the Black Claw. Something that’s worth killing over.

Meanwhile, Nick and Adalind have slowly been talking about their feelings and them being a family. Now that Juliette, I mean, Eve, back in the picture, will that change the way that Nick feels about Adalind? Or will her presence distract him? Don’t worry, Trubel decides to have a little chat with Eve about her intentions.

Elsewhere, we learn a lot more about Black Claw, Meisner and Hadrian’s Wall. We get a little sneak peek inside their lair and Monroe finally meets Eve for the first time. Apparently the Black Claw is the second time a group has tried to erase anything and everything that has to do with Grimms.

Will we find out what is so important that’s worth killing for?

A secret war is brewing amongst the Wesen…Trubel is back and our favorite hexenbiest is alive!

Last we saw, someone in the shadows saved Nick’s life and he whispered, “Juliette?” I mean, I knew they couldn’t get rid of her, but I was still somewhat convinced she was dead. So now she’s back, but as what? This new Juliette, or Eve as she’s called now, is different. She’s not the same hexenbiest we once knew. Where’s she been? What’s she been up to? Why does she go be Eve now? Has she been brainwashed? Is she here to help? SO MANY QUESTIONS!

By Claire Gendel

NBC has renewed five of its current drama series for the 2015-2016 season, the network announced on Thursday.

The Blacklist (season 3), Chicago Fire (season 4), Chicago P.D. (season 3), Law & Order: Special Victims Unit (season 17) and Grimm (season 5) will all be returning with new season.

“The creative vision of the executive producers who’ve guided these outstanding dramas has been nothing short of incredible,” said Jennifer Salke, President, NBC Entertainment. “We’re highly appreciative of the passion they bring to their shows at every step of the creative process and we’re thrilled to reward that dedication with these renewals.”

The Blacklist, starring James Spader, moves to its new night and time, after a huge boost from the Super Bowl, Thursdays at 9 p.m. According to the press release, the drama series is averaging a 5.1 ratings 17.4 million viewers so far this season.

Chicago Fire is delivering a 2.8 rating and 10.1 million viewers overall this season, making it NBC’s #2 drama in both measures. Dick Wolf’s other show, Chicago P.D., is earning a 2.3 rating 9.4 million viewers this season and has finished #1 or tied for #1 among ABC, CBS and NBC in the time period with five of its last six original broadcasts through Feb. 2.

Wolf’s third show, SVU, is averaging a 2.5 rating with 9.5 million viewers and is up 10% this season versus last.

Grimm has averaged a 2.1 rating with 7.2 million viewers overall this season making it Friday’s #1 scripted series in 18-49 on the Big 4 networks

None of these renewals are surprising. The only thing we don’t know, is the status of Constantine and Katherine Heigl’s State of Affairs. As far as comedies go, Marry MeThe Mysteries of Laura and About a Boy are all on the bubble.

Nick and Hank let him out and decide it’s time to bring him in to their inner circle, to know the truth. I mean, they should have done this a long time ago. Poor, Wu.
