The season 2 finale of Grimm
ended with a huge cliffhanger when it turned its main character into a zombie. The cast and producers assembled at Comic-Con but were tight-lipped about the dead/undead Nick.
Check out the hodgepodge of topics that were discussed.
David Giuntoli (Nick)
Silas Weir Mitchell (Monroe)
Russell Hornsby (Hank)
Sasha Roiz (Renard)
Bitsie Tulloch (Juliette)
Reggie Lee (Wu)
Bree Turner (Rosalee)
Clarie Coffee (Adalind)
Jim Kouf (Executive Producer)
David Greenwalt (Executive Producer)
Todd Milliner (Executive Producer)
Noberto Barba (Executive Producer)
- With his best poker face, Giuntoli would not reveal -- let alone discuss -- whether Nick is dead or alive. But the first episode is titled "The Ungrateful Dead" so that's a bit of a clue.
- Lee auditioned for Hank, but that role ultimately went to Hornsby. However, the producers liked Lee so much that they created Wu just for him. His character will suffer "greatly" this season.
- The cast loves shooting in Portland. It makes it easier when the city has embraced the show.
- Thanks to storylines that take place in Europe, the show's fanbase has grown in that continent.
- The "wedding" ring that Renard wears is a royal ring. He'll also be taking his shirt off this season.
- New characters for next season include mermaids, gators in the sewer and faith healers.
- The reveal of the second key will "lead to something unbelievable."
- Greenwalt and Kouf, the creators, told the story of how they pitched the show to the network. They said there were hundreds of Grimm fairytales to tell, when in reality only 10 or so are well-known and could be translated onto a television show.
- Among the cast, the following languages can be spoken: English, French, Spanish, Russian, Mandarin, Cantonese, Tagalog and some Swedish. Renard will speak Russian on the show.
Grimm returns in the fall on Oct. 25 at 9pm on NBC.
