Buffy The Vampire Slayer and Angel star Alexis Denisof – best known for playing buttoned-down Watcher Wesley Wyndam-Pryce – has signed up for Grimm Season 3 – a nice touch as the show is not only hugely indebted to Angel’s style of stroytelling, but a creation of Angel allumns David Greenwalt and Jim Kouf.

According to Entertainment Weekly, Denisof plays Viktor Albert Wilhelm George Beckendorf, a first cousin of James Frain’s oily Eric Renard and therefore distantly related to Sasha Roiz’s Sean Renard.

Grimm Season 3 will air 25 October 2013 on NBC in the US, and later in the year on Watch in the UK. Grimm Season 2 is available to own from 21 October 2013, pre-order it now on DVD for £21.71 or Blu-ray for £24.50 from Amazon.co.uk.
