NBC just tweeted out the news that Grimm will end after completing its sixth season. That’s bad news for Grimmsters (and the talented cast and crew), but it’s not totally unexpected. NBC had only given the series a shortened sixth season so the writing was definitely on the wall. The network also announced the sixth and final season will premiere on January 6, 2017 at 8pm ET/PT.

A Look Back at the Season Five Plot: As the nefarious forces of Black Claw take hold of Portland, Nick (David Giuntoli) 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 Wesen uprising to a halt. Now that Capt. Sean Renard (Sasha Roiz) is poised to make his move to power, his allegiance to Nick will be tested and he will consider drastic measures to ensure his place of authority.
A Look Ahead to Season Six: 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.
