NBC Renews Grimm And Revolution For New Seasons

Fans of Revolution and Grimm rejoice, for ye shall be seeing more episodes of the shows you love.

Today US network NBC has renewed the JJ Abrams-produced Revolution for a second season, while supernatural cop show Grimm will be back for a third season.

Spinning the numbers NBC boasted, “ Revolution is the season's top-rated drama on ABC, CBS, NBC and Fox and top-rated new series among those networks in adults 18-49, scoring a 4.6 rating, 12 share and 11.8 million viewers overall in ‘most current’ averages for the season to date.” Um, does anybody understand what that means?

Grimm meanwhile, “is Friday's #1 series in adults 18-49 and is up versus one year ago by 14 percent in 18-49 rating (with a 2.4 vs. the year-ago 2.1, ‘most current’) and is up 12 percent in total viewers (6.9 million vs. 5.2 million).” Yeah, we got the “up” bit. Up is good, isn’t it?

Anyway – hurrah! Congratulations to both shows. Especially Grimm , which, when it launched, we were convinced was going to be cancelled within half a season and has actually not only proved us wrong, but actually become pretty blimmin’ good in the process. Mainly thanks to Monroe (we could still happily live with Nick‘s drippy girlfriend being killed off, though).
