As we draw closer to Comic-Con 2013, NBC has become the latest network to unveil its full slate of TV panels for the international pop-culture event in San Diego. Among the known presences of 'Hannibal' and 'Revolution,' most exciting is the glorious return of 'Community,' led by its returning creator Dan Harmon!
After wrapping up one of its last major midseason holdings in the 'Hannibal' finale, NBC has officially jumped into fall 2013 territory to set their upcoming premiere schedule. Among the highlights, 'Parks and Recreation' will jump across the pond from D.C. to London for its hour-long sixth season opener, while Jonathan Rhys-Meyer's 'Dracula' will bow in October, understandably.
'Grimm' closes out its rather enjoyable second season tonight, and in doing so finally resolves one of the big plot points of the season 2 (Juliette's amnesia and her knowledge of Nick's status as a Grimm), while also setting up the stakes for Season 3 in the most action-packed episode of the year.
We'd be hard pressed to say who had the most brutal of cancellations and fruitful pickups between the five major networks this weekend, but few would offer that NBC had any undeserved ends. Even so, the peacock has become the first among the five to set its major schedule, moving 'Revolution' and 'Parenthood' to new nights, scheduling Jonathan Rhys-Meyers 'Dracula' for fall and moving 'Community' and more to midseason! Get the lowdown on NBC's new lineup inside!
Season 2 of 'Grimm' is winding down, and so a lot of the season-long issues are finally being resolved. Juliette's memory is coming back, the key may actually mean and lead to something, Wu might get more to do every episode or so, etc. etc. Tonight's episode "Kiss of the Muse" brings in guest star Nora Zehetner (co-star of 'Brick') and it looks like it might wrap up some of this Juliette/coma stuff. At least, we can hope.
It's a quick turnaround for a new 'Grimm' episode, as we just had a new episode Friday. but 'Grimm' has moved to Tuesday nights, and it'll be interesting to see if the shift helps or hurts, as it's maintained solid ratings on a night that's generally considered dead. But the schedule shift shouldn't change the show too much (at least not yet) as it's heading into the home stretch of its second season, and we're curious to see how they wrap it all up.
After a little break, 'Grimm' returns to hopefully wrap up some of Juliette's issues as she keeps seeing the ghost of Nick. You almost feel bad for actress Bitsie Tulloch as the amnesia has been pretty much the only thing her character has been dealing with this entire season, while all the other main characters (save Wu) now know Nick's secret.
Holy cow! It's not even May and already NBC has taken drastic steps toward renewing five of its major drams, both new and old. Over the wire we've learned that 'Revolution,' 'Grimm,' 'Parenthood,' 'Law & Order: SVU' and 'Chicago Fire' have all received episode orders for the 2013-14 season, but will they offer full seasons? Find out what's coming back and whose fate hangs in the balance inside!
It's that time again! With the Upfront presentations set to begin in the next few weeks, all the major networks have begun to trim the hedges and tighten a few loose ends before the ultimate presentations. The latest to shake things up is NBC, who has announce the cancellation of struggling reality series 'Ready For Love,' moving the surprisingly-durable 'Grimm' to Tuesdays for the foreseeable future. Could that be a sign of good things to come for the quietly-steady NBC drama?
