Descroption: Portland detective, Nick Burkhardt, has seen some gruesome crime scenes, but nothing prepares him for the strange visions he begins seeing: seemingly regular people momentarily transforming into hideous monsters. A visit from his only living relative reveals the truth. Nick has inherited the ability to see supernatural creatures, and as a “Grimm,” he is tasked with keeping the balance between mankind and the mythological. A reformed “Big Bad Wolf” becomes his greatest (and also reluctant) ally and confidant. It’s not long before his work as a policeman leads Nick to the criminals he once thought were only found in fairy tales.

- Not your usual suspects.
- Storytime is over.
- It’s not over yet.
- It was revealed at Comic Con that actual descendants of the Brothers Grimm reside in Portland. The producers had no idea until a member in the audience told them.
- Whenever the episode includes a room number (hotel room, hospital ward or bed) or address, the number is the combination of the number of the season and of the episode. For example, the hotel room of Adalind was shown first in episode 12 of season 2, and the room no. was 212.
- According to Kelly Burkhardt, the Grimm trait is not strictly hereditary. Some offspring of Grimms have it and others don’t. Girls also realize it earlier than boys.
- David Giuntoli (Nick) and Elizabeth Tulloch (Juliette/Eve) announced their engagement at Comic-Con in San Diego.
- There is a stained glass image of a wolf on Monroe’s door; fitting as Monroe is a “blutbad” or “big bad wolf”.
