How much story is left in the tank for “Grimm“? In our eyes, the answer here is “quite a bit,” given that we’re only now starting to get some essence of Juliette back, and when you think about the show’s overall mythology and rich cast, there are so many more stories that could be told.
Heck, when you think about it, “Supernatural” could be a great template for how there are constant ways to reinvent the show, and keep at least a small core of people around. We know that people do die from time to time, but we’ve already seen with Juliette that death is far from the end in this world.
So should season 6 be the series’ last? Obviously our feeling story-wise is “no,” but you also have to look at the current reality of things. We’re coming off of the lowest-rated season for the show yet, where it averaged a mere 0.9 rating in the 18-49 demographic. That’s down more than 20% from season 4, and with only 13 episodes for season 6 as of yet, NBC is not banking on it in the way they used to. If this does prove to be the end, our hope is that the network tells them in time to wrap up the ending rather than having to go in “Castle”-style and tack on an ending that really doesn’t make a whole lot of sense.
Are there still reasons to be hopeful? Sure. The show generates great DVR numbers, it’s popular worldwide, and it’s on a night in Fridays where there is less competition.
