NBC dark fantasy drama “Grimm” has been renewed for a sixth season almost a month earlier from the Season 5 finale on May 20. Here comes another piece of good news about the approaching season to excite dedicated viewers of the show.

Although Season 6 would be a lot shorter than the previous offerings, it promises dramatic suspense.  This 13-episode-chapter of “Grimm” will underline a new side to Martin Meisner (played by Damien Puckler)’s death.  Do you remember the character dying in the second to the last episode of Grimm Season 5?  Grimm Nick Burkhard (David Giuntoli) still posseses the healing stick, but it’s not clear whether or not he is going to use it on Meinser in Season six. Will Meinser’s character come back to life again? Grimm executive producer David Greenwalt is also non-committal regarding Meinser’s fate, Cross Map Reports.

In a recent interview with TV Insider, lead actor Giuntoli made known that the Black Claw will not be the main threat of “Grimm” Season 6. He concluded, “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. I don’t know this for absolute sure, but that’s the word on the street.”

Sasha Roiz appears to advocate the same thing. His character as Portland Mayor Sean Renard is going to stay a Black Claw operational because that’s where he would be powerful.

“I think he’s one of those poor souls who will never be satisfied and will always be looking for another opportunity,” Roiz communicated to a relevant source.

At the climax of  the fifth season finale of “Grimm,” Conrad Bonaparte (Shaun Toub), believed to be a very influential Zauberbiest, dies in the hands of Renard, just when Bonaparte was about to off Nick. In fact, Renard saves Nick.

Diana (Hannah Loyd), the little Hexenbiest, is the real Zauberbiest killer. So now, the question arises on how Renard would play it from there. Would he pretend to be a hero after their clash in the precinct or would he tell the truth about her daughter?

In such scenario, both David Giuntoli and Sasha Roiz’s statements do sound convincing as they drop hints on who  fans can expect as the new villain in Season 6.

“Grimm” Season 6 is predicted to return to NBC later this year.
