'Grimm' Renewed: NBC Orders Season 3

"Grimm" has been renewed by NBC, the network announced. The Friday night series, which was recently bumped to Tuesdays after "Ready For Love" was cancelled, will return for Season 3.

"Grimm's" renewal shouldn't come as a surprise: It's one of the few shows that has routinely performed solidly -- and on a Friday to boot.

"Grimm" stars David Giuntoli as Nick Burkhardt, a detective who is a descendant of the Grimms and is charged with policing both humans and the mythological creatures from the fairytales viewers read as children.

Bitsie Tulloch, who plays Juliette Silverton on "Grimm," tweeted about the renewal as did her co-stars Sasha Roiz (Captain Sean Renard) and Claire Coffee (Adalind Schade),

Sean Hayes, an executive producer of the show, along with Todd Milliner, also tweeted about "Grimm" being renewed:

Season 1 of "Grimm" averaged 6.4 million viewers. During Season 2, the show has bounced around the high 4 million and 5 million viewer mark. NBC aired a block of new episodes between August and November, then yanked it off the schedule until early March. The last episode to air in November had 5 million viewers. Its midseason premiere had 4.9 million viewers.

Beginning April 30, "Grimm" airs Tuesdays at 10 p.m. ET on NBC.
