'Grimm' Season 6 Spoilers: Giuntoli Talks Of Nick And Other Characters
Perhaps it would be tough to speculate about Season 6 of "Grimm", the NBC fantasy drama, as it aired its Season 5 finale on May 20, just two weeks ago. Yet, lead actor David Giuntoli has given some comments about his character Nick Burkhardt, along with the return of Bitsie Tulloch's Juliette and complexities with Claire Coffee's Adalind that have roused some rumors.
The final fifth season of "Grimm" featured Conrad Bonaparte (Shaun Toub), who was a powerful Zauberbiest, and was killed by Portland Mayor Sean Renard (Sasha Roiz), just when Bonaparte was going to slay Nick. Hence, it turned out that Renard saved Nick.
However, the actual Zauberbiest killer is really Diana (Hannah Loyd), who is a Hexenbiest. So now would Renard pretend to be a hero after their tiff, or would he blurt out the truth about her daughter?
Giuntoli gives some hints. "Renard is going to be the big bad in Season 6. We'll focus more on him and his rise to power and what that means," Giuntoli has told TV Insider, even as he mentioned that this is "word on the street."
Sasha Roiz too indicated something like that. His character Renard will remain a Black Claw operative, through which he would wield a lot of power.
"I think he's one of those poor souls who will never be satisfied and will always be looking for another opportunity," Roiz told TV Line.
In the same interview, Giuntoli said Juliette has come back, so Nick will make some decisions. The magic healing stick has rejuvenated Juliette, and she is feeling "a lot." Bitsie Tulloch also disclosed Juliette in a revealing way, displaying the difference between the Hexenbiest killer and the woman that Nick loved for so many years.
"Nick is now in love with a Hexenbiest [Claire Coffee's Adalind Schade] and they have a child [baby Kelly]. Nick's also gotta be thinking, 'Does Juliette know she killed my mother?'" Giuntoli mused.
So Renard leads the Black Claw and Juliette returns to his life. Now what is Nick going to do when the "Grimm" Season 6 comes back this year on NBC?
Meanwhile, after working with the directors for almost five years, Giuntoli has decided to direct an episode next season.
While there are 13 confirmed episodes in "Grimm" Season 6, Giuntoli declared that a few additional episode orders may also come their way. If the sixth season is the final one, though, the fans can get some closure from the writers, he decides.
"Grimm" Season 6 is likely to be featured in NBC later this year.
