grimm season 5

Fantasy fans will reunite with all their favourite Wesen, Hexenbiests and Fuchsbaus with the fifth season of Grimm.

Premiering on Monday 25 January at 19:00 on M-Net Edge, it picks up right from Season 4’s dramatic conclusion.

To tide you over until then, here are five facts about the show you may not have known:

1. Grimm is set in Portland, Oregon - as any die-hard fan knows. The reason for choosing this location is the Washington and Forest Parks. Because many scenes call for shots in the woods, these two parks provide the perfect setting for the eerie mystique of the show.

2. David Giuntoli and Bitsy Tulloch, who play on-screen couple Nick Burkhardt and Juliette Silverton, are dating outside the show as well.

3.The on- and off-screen couple are a couple of brainiacs too. Giuntoli has a degree in International Business and Finance, and Tulloch graduated from Harvard, majoring in English and American Literature.

4. On the literary note, the show has a few written spin-offs: three books and a twelve-issue comic book series. Sounds like serious fandom!

5. There’s a bit of multilingualism going on amongst the cast. Tulloch can speak Spanish, while Sasha Roiz (Captain Sean Renard) speaks French and Russian. It appears none of the cast speak German, although after five seasons immersed in German folklore, they’re sure to have picked up a word or two.
