The fantasy police procedural “Grimm,” which is set to premiere its fourth season on NBC Oct. 24, now has a cable home, with TNT buying syndication rights to the series. The Hollywood Reporter’s Live Feed reports that the cable network will begin airing episodes of the show in early 2015.
The drama has been “a boon to NBC’s Friday night schedule — and even bigger on DVR,” the story reports. “The last season averaged a 2.5 rating with adults 18-49 and 8.2 million viewers once live-plus-seven day ratings were tallied.”
Said Deborah K. Bradley, Turner Broadcasting senior vice president and head of program acquisitions, content strategy and licensing: “Grimm will be a great addition to TNT’s lineup as the network continues to expand its reach with high-quality genre programming.”
The upcoming fourth season of “Grimm” will be part of the syndicated run on TNT, along with the drama’s first three seasons, the story notes.
