Grimm: NBC developing a female led spin-off for the supernatural drama


Grimm continues to prove it’s the little show that could.

NBC announced today their cult hit, Grimm, might be returning in some form. Deadline reports the network is currently developing a female-led spin-off for the procedural. In 2017 when the show was nearing its end, speculation about a new show following the same lore began. It looks like fans might finally get their wish to see the series return to the network.

According to Deadline, this new version of Grimm will see some fan favorites return. With that in mind, it seems like one of the leads could be Trubel (Jacqueline Toboni) considering she was the one thrown around the most as a potential new lead. Enough time has passed that she could take up the mantle of the main Grimm and train the next generation of protectors. Namely, Kelly and Diana, who finished the series in a flash forward as adults helping their parents fight crime.

It wouldn’t be Grimm if the series wasn’t set in Portland. Which means most fans will be hoping to see Rosalee Calvert (Bree Turner) and Monroe (Silas Weir) as well as their triplets. Since the network is hoping for the female lead to be a Grimm, that rules out any of the kids from stepping into the spotlight. However, any one of them could fill the roles that their parents once played for Nick (David Guintoli).

Considering Nick has always been the main character on the show, it would be remiss not to hear his legacy be carried on. However, David Guintoli is currently starring on ABC’s A Million Little Things and it’s unclear if he would be able to return and in what capacity. But it seems like if NBC brings back Grimm, they will be mindful of the impact his character has had in this universe.

Melissa Glenn has been tasked with writing the new series and incorporating elements of the original show while still making it stand on its own. She recently wrote and produced an episode on the vastly improved second season of Iron Fist. In the past, she’s worked as a writer and producer for The CW’s Beauty and the Beast as well as CBS’ Zoo.
