NBC is developing a potential female-fronted Grimm spin-off for next TV season, and even though the show doesn't have a cast or a title yet, they already have a big fan in one familiar face: David Giuntoli.
The actor who led the original Grimm series for six seasons as Nick Burkhardt revealed to TV Guide that he is psyched NBC is trying to find a way to keep the Grimm world alive for the fans, including himself.
"I could not be more thrilled that NBC is developing a Grimm spin-off," he said. "I thought it was such a wonderful show and we built just a vibrant, colorful world. To not be able to play in that world any longer seems like such a waste. So I could not be happier for everyone involved in the Grimm spin-off."
What's better is that Giuntoli hasn't ruled out making an appearance either. He just has one small request that shouldn't be too hard to oblige.
"I just want them to roll old Nick Burkhardt, his old bag of bones, off the couch every now and again for a 'special guest star,'" he said. "And hopefully the new female lead can do all the fight scenes."
That's fair since the original show ended with a flash-forward that showed Nick's grown-up children taking on the Grimm mantle. If the spin-off decides to pick up with adult Dianna in the lead, it would make sense that older Nick wouldn't be physically down for punching demons, just there to offer some sage advice for how his daughter -- or whoever leads the series -- should do it.
It'll be months before NBC makes an official decision about the Grimm spin-off, though. In the meantime, Giuntoli stars on ABC's emotional drama A Million Little Things, which airs Wednesdays at 10/9c on ABC.
