Oregon Governor John Kitzhaber joined Grimm stars David Giuntoli, Bitsie Tulloch, and Silas Weir Mitchell on May 29 for the show's season 2 kick off party. Does that cake look appetizing to you?

This year, NBC is galloping even further ahead, coattailing its high-profile Olympics coverage with a selected handful of sneak-peek premieres as early as August 8 (for the new Matthew Perry sitcom Go On). And as a sign of how Grimm has risen in stature to become one of the network's highest-profile returning dramas, the fairy-tale series is being corralled into this early launch gimmick with a season 2 premiere set for Monday, August 13, following the two-hour launch of the awkwardly named new competition series Stars Earn Stripes.
Grimm, which started production at the end of May in Portland, Oregon, will then revert to its regular time-slot and schedule, Fridays at 9 p.m. ET, a month later, starting Sep. 14. NBC's other sci-fi/fantasy series, the freshman drama Revolution, will launch three days later, on Monday, Sep. 17.
Season 2 of Grimm is worth looking forward to. The series slowly developed nuance and confidence over the course of its first year, and that often forebodes a solid second season in terms of plotting and characterization. And now, we only have six weeks to wait for the first intimation of what's in store for Nick, Monroe, and company.
