The fifth series of American drama Grimm will premiere on Watch from early November UKTV have confirmed.
Inspired by the classic Grimm Brothers’ Fairy Tales, David Giuntoli stars as Portland homicide detective Nick Burkhardt, who discovers he is descended from an elite line of criminal profilers known as ‘Grimms.’ However, he increasingly finds his responsibilities as a detective at odds with his new responsibilities as a Grimm.
Season four left viewers and Nick devastated by his mother’s beheading and death of the love of his life, Juliette (Bitsie Tulloch). Having lost so much, Nick must dig deep and decide what type of person he wants to be, while also coming to terms with fathering a child with his once sworn enemy, Adalind (Claire Coffee), as a result of their one-time encounter. As season five begins, it appears Nick’s rage is consuming him and he goes on a quest for vengeance. The season premiere, The Grimm Identity, will also see the arrival of Nick and Adalind’s baby.
Madeline Brewer also guest stars as a Wesen in the new season. Brewer’s character is a lieutenant but she is not just an ordinary deputy, she is a fierce creature that is part of an up-and-coming Wesen street gang who is raising hell in Portland.
Grimm also stars Russell Hornsby, Silas Weir Mitchell, Sasha Roiz, Reggie Lee and Bree Turner. Season five of Grimm launches on Watch, Tuesday 3rd November at 9pm – just one week after it launches in the US.
