Grimm eyed for early August return
by Doc on Apr.30, 2012, under Television
NBC has already given an early renewal order for 22 more episodes of hit series Grimm – now it seems that it wants to bring it back earlier than the customary September debut, instead bringing it back in August to fill the gap after the network’s Olympics coverage, taking advantage of the huge opportunity for promotion of its shows and they wouldn’t want to lose the momentum by having several weeks pass, while NBC should be coming off of a ratings high and has been looking to get out of the ratings basement overall. New comedy series Go On starring Friends alum Matthew Perry also is being eyed for an early start.
Expect Grimm to get right back into production soon…word is the writers are already at work.
