NBC’s hit TV series “Grimm” recently aired the two-hour long finale of its fifth season. The finale featured a number of major developments for some members of the Scooby Gang as well as an extensive and thrilling deciding fight between the Gang and the Black Claw, after it was revealed that their leader is none other than Conrad Bonaparte (Shaun Toub).
Series star David Giuntoli, who plays Nick Burkhardt, talked about what fans can expect from the upcoming season and what elements from the previous season will be included in the new one.
In a recent interview with TV Insider, Giuntoli talked about the presence of the mysterious stick in the series, which has been used already by his character Nick to heal himself when he got hurt fighting the men of the Black Claw. The stick is an artifact not yet fully known, and the actor teased that fans might be able to see and know more about it in the new season.
“Nick and the Scooby Gang are still discovering the potential of this stick, right along with the viewers,” he said. “Nick survived a barrage of bullets through his chest and only he knows he’s invincible at this point. But we don’t know much more, like what kind of evil this stick could be used for if it falls into the wrong hands. He just puts that crazy stick back in his pocket. Is he going to tell the rest of the gang? We’ll see.”
The actor, who was given the chance to direct an episode in season 6, also teased that the upcoming season might be the final season, or perhaps the show might have two more shortened seasons. Either way, he teased that the story of “Grimm” is coming to an end soon. However, he also teased that the end will be satisfying.
“First off, we don’t know the exact episode count for season 6. We know we have 13 for sure but it could end up being between 15 and 18. What should you read into that? I would imagine this will be our last season,” the actor revealed. “But here’s the exciting thing about that: Our writers will be able to give us a really cool ending. We have time to wrap it up in a wonderful, perfect way, for all of our characters. We will go out big and we will go out strong.”
