'Grimm' Gets Renewed For Nine More Episodes, Dec. 8 'Showcase'

'Grimm' Gets Renewed For Nine More Episodes, Dec. 8 'Showcase' Good news: "Grimm" is going nowhere.

TVLine reports that the NBC crime-procedural populated by the good, the bad and the ugly of the tales spun by the famous Brothers Grimm has been picked up for a "back nine" episode order, giving it a full 22-episode run. Just as importantly, it looks like it will also receive a Dec. 8 "showcase" to hopefully lure more eyeballs.

It's a decision that might stand out as a sound one among a few other recent ones that have some fans stewing. The network recently sent the beloved "Community" into a hiatus purgatory with no announced timetable for its return, while retaining the freshman comedy "Whitney" although that show's ratings hit a series-low recently while "Community" actually gained viewers.

Earlier this fall, NBC also scrapped the much-hyped, mildly controversial "The Playboy Club" after a scant few episodes of lackluster ratings and gripes about the show's risque nature.

"Grimm" has looked strong. the Friday-night drama has been averaging 7 million viewers and a 2.3 rating among the network's most coveted viewers, 18-49 year-olds.

“This series is turning the traditional procedural drama on its head and is attracting a loyal following for us on Friday nights. We love where it’s going creatively and we’re excited to deliver more episodes to our audience," said NBC Chairman Robert Greenblatt.
