'Grimm' Renewed: NBC Orders Season 2 Of Fairy Tale Procedural

The future for "Grimm" is bright: NBC has ordered a second season of the fairy tale procedural. NBC confirmed it handed out an early Season 2 order to the freshman Friday night drama. TVLine was the first to report the news.

"Grimm" premiered to 6.7 million viewers, one of the strongest premieres of NBC's 2011-2012 season. It's also one of three new NBC dramas left on the Peacock's schedule: "Grimm" and NBC's midseason outings "Awake" and "Smash" are the only new dramatic additions still standing. NBC's other new dramas -- "Prime Suspect," "The Playboy Club" and "The Firm" -- have been removed from the schedule.

In its Fridays at 9 p.m. time slot, "Grimm" has been averaging pretty consistent ratings. Its most recent episode brought in 5.2 million viewers. "Grimm's" Friday night competition includes "What Would You Do?" on ABC, "CSI: NY" on CBS and "Kitchen Nightmares" on Fox.

"Grimm" stars David Giuntoli as a police detective and descendant of the Brothers Grimm who sees fairy tale characters hiding in the real world. The show is one of two fairy tale-themed dramas to premiere on network TV this season. ABC's "Once Upon a Time" has been a ratings hit. The genre's success has spawned new pilots at both ABC and The CW: Both networks are taking on the "Beauty and the Beast" tale.
