In Grimm, Nick Burkhardt (David Giuntoli), a police detective, discovers he is a descendent of guardians known as Grimms, who protect humans from the supernatural forces and creatures from Grimms’ fairy tales. As a Grimm, Burkhardt has special powers, so to speak, which he uses to solve crimes and hunt creatures.

Overall, Grimm hasn’t received great ratings on NBC. However, the show has found a very large, cult following thanks to streaming services like Netflix and Amazon Prime Video.

The first four seasons of Grimm are available to stream on Amazon Prime Video. The fifth season of Grimm premieres on October 30, 2015, but if you’ve missed a couple episodes, you can buy individual episodes of the fifth season of Grimm the day after they air on TV.
