‘Grimm’ season 6 may be shorter season with 13 episodes as series will end

This season, NBC had nine drama series debuting in September through late fall, three of them new (plus limited series Heroes Reborn). The network has already renewed eight drama series for next season, with one more, The Mysteries of Laura, on the bubble.

Deadline notes that the “NBC drama series would make it on the fall schedule” with an “…initial Season 6 order is for 13 episodes, not the customary 22” — the final season.

“This season, the supernatural procedural is averaging  a 1.6 most current adults 18-49 rating and 6.1 million viewers. That is down from last season’s averages (2.0, 7.1), but Grimm still ranks as one of the highest rated scripted series on Friday despite being a self-starter, with very little lead-in support. It also is owned by NBC and does well internationally, something that plays more and more into networks’ renewal decisions.”

Created by David Greenwalt, Jim Kouf and Stephen Carpenter, Grimm stars David Giuntoli as a homicide detective who is also a Grimm, hunting supernatural creatures.

Grimm also stars Russell Hornsby, Silas Weir Mitchell, Bitsie Tulloch, Reggie Lee, Sasha Roiz, Bree Turner and Claire Coffee.
