What Hexenbiest do we have to blame for this?
NBC's just announced that its funky fairy tale mashup series Grimm will come to an end after its upcoming sixth season, giving fans a chance to say goodbye to Wesen hunter Nick Burkhardt (David Guintoli), along with all of his friends and foes lurking about the Pacific Northwest. Unfortunately, they'll have to wait a little longer for the final season to even start, as the network has also pushed the premiere date from the previously announced Friday, Oct. 28 to Friday, Jan. 6.
In the final 13 episodes of the series, Grimm will focus on the battle fans have been waiting for: Nick vs. the villainous Capt. Renard. With Renard (Sasha Roiz) now in the seat of power as Portland's mayor elect, Nick will be forced to take a stand to protect his city and those closest to him.
And that wasn't the only announcement NBC made. Along with the revelation about Grimm's future, the network also revealed premiere dates for the highly-anticipated reboot of The Celebrity Apprentice with new host Arnold Schwarzenegger, as well as the new series Emerald City.
The Celebrity Apprentice will premiere Monday, Jan. 2 at 8 p.m. In this new, Donald Trump-less season, Schwarzenegger will be joined in the boardroom by a series of high-profile advisers, including Warren Buffett, Tyra Banks, and Jessica Alba, to decide who among the 16 celebrity contestants deserve the title of the Celebrity Apprentice, as well as a $250,000 check for their designated charity. Competing this season are: Laila Ali, Brooke Burke-Charvet, Eric Dickerson, Boy George, Matt Iseman, Carrie Keagan, Carson Kressley, Lisa Leslie, Jon Lovitz, Vince Neil, Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi, Kyle Richards, Chael Sonnen, Porsha Williams, Ricky Williams, and Carnie Wilson.
Emerald City, the network's bold re-imagining of The Wizard of Oz, premieres on Friday, Jan. 6, following Grimm at 9 p.m. The series centers on 20-year-old Dorothy Gale (Adria Arjona), who is transported by tornado to another world — a mystical land where an all-powerful ruler (Vincent D'Onofrio) governs over one kingdom, has outlawed magic, and faces not only the wrath of a growing cauldron of witches but a looming disaster brought on by a mythical force.
