Halloween is almost here and what better way to celebrate it than with a very special episode of Grimm
? The hit NBC series is combining forces with Universal's Halloween Horror Nights
, Telemundo and MUN2 to give fans an all-around scary experience.
Sure, most episodes of Grimm can be considered Halloween episodes but leave it to the spooky series to take that one step further to celebrate the holiday itself. On October 26, the Friday before Halloween, Grimm will take on the Mexican legend known as "La Llorona" in an episode of the same name. Some of the highlights of the episode include a guest appearance by Kate del Castillo (Telemundo's La Reina del Sur), Monroe going all out to celebrate the season, and Juliette being brought in as a replacement Spanish translator.
Experience "La Llorona" in person
To also celebrate the special Halloween episode, Grimm is partnering with Universal's Halloween Horror Nights. Guests attending the HHN event at Universal Studios Hollywood will experience the terrifying legend live and in person, as it unfolds before their eyes in La Llorona: Cazadora de NiÃ±os (Weeping Woman: The Child Hunter) maze, as part of its popular Halloween Horror Nights event. Halloween Horror Nights continues on select nights through October 31, so if you're in the LA area, be sure to check it out and find out just how scary "La Llorona" can be.
Special airings of Grimm for Spanish-speaking fans
Grimm's Halloween episode will also be airing in Spanish after it airs on NBC in an unprecedented NBC Universal cross-divisional event. "La Llorona" will be broadcast in Spanish on Telemundo from 12-1 a.m. (ET) and English on mun2 at 1-2 a.m. (ET). These airings will follow the episode's debut on NBC at 9-10 p.m. (ET).
For those who aren't familiar with it, the legend of La Llorona ("The Weeping Woman") is an enduring tale from Latin American folklore that tells of a distraught mother who drowned her children and then herself. The ghost of the mother emerges from water and is forced to return to haunt and terrorize the living.
What do you think Grimm fans? Are you excited to see the show's take on the La Llorona legend in its Halloween episode? Who, like me, has plans to head to Universal's Halloween Horror Nights to see the legend for themselves?
