Despite a large uproar to their mid-season schedule, NBC is still looking towards the future. With Grimm a big Friday hit, the network isn’t quite ready to make a full season commitment, but is ready to extend the season by two hours. Also, it seems Bryan Fuller’s first step to returning to television will be made.
Though Grimm‘s ratings has slipped just a bit, it still remains one of the highest viewed scripted series on the network. So, the season will see, at the very least, 15 total episodes. Just when NBC will give the series the other 7 for a complete first season is unknown. Grimm currently airs Fridays at 9PM.
Meanwhile, The Munsters looks like it’s on its way back to TV. It was reported last week that NBC was looking to turn it into a full out series with a summer premiere sometime this week, but obviously they want to see how the pilot will fare first. So, the network has greenlit the first episode of the series, which Universal Television will produce.
It’s expected that Fuller will direct. If successful, this is the first of a signed deal with NBC Universal that Fuller has with the company, as he’ll be creating new shows as well for NBC, USA, and SyFy.
If and when NBC gives The Munsters a first season, we’ll let you know. No casting news for the potential new series has yet come into play.
