It’s fair to say that Grimm Season Three ended on a hell of a cliffhanger. The Monroe (Silas Weir Mitchell)-Rosalee (Bree Turner) wedding didn’t exactly go off without a hitch (tough when one of the guests ends up with a chest full of bullets): Wu (Reggie Lee) might have finally uncovered Nick’s (David Giuntoli) supernatural secrets, and speaking of Nick – he’s lost his Grimm powers.
“Boy, that last episode, I think there were about 30 cliffhangers going on at once!” laughs Lee, who has become a fan favourite as the deeply sarcastic Sergeant Drew Wu. “There are so many juicy events happening that it bodes for a really great comeback. And believe me, it starts right where we left off.”
Season Four will find our heroes struggling to adapt. Without his Grimm powers, Nick and Hank (Russell Hornsby) have to go back to more old-fashioned kind of police work. They’ll also be dealing with the fact that Wu knows that something’s up, and that his colleagues and friends have been lying to him.
“I think the thing about Season Four specifically is everyone has such an individual path,” explains Lee. “Seasons Two and Three were like kind of the seasons of the Scooby Gang, with everyone working together. Season Four explores very personal paths of each of these people. It’s kind of like psychological action; everyone’s in a psychological dilemma. What I hear from the fans is that they’re more keen on the individual lives of these people that are in this show.”
Fan interaction has always been a huge part of Grimm’s success, and Lee tells us that the faithful are more vocal than ever. “They’re in it to win it, and they are really full force in your character’s life!” he laughs. “And what I like is they care so much. You can see how the fanbase has really grown. It’s been very warming, because they’ve been so involved.”
Although Lee tells us that those fans should be prepared for a darker road,he’s confident that Season Four of Grimm is better than it ever has been before.
“You will go through a very emotional ride,” he teases. “There is a confrontation between a couple of characters in the show that you never would think would happen,” he explains. “I mean, we’re talking a major confrontation! So you guys have something really wonderful, and I really do believe that it’s been the best season yet.”
Grimm Season Four will air from 28 January on Watch. Keep up with the latest TV news in the new issue of SciFiNow.
