NBC's has renewed "Grimm" for a second season, according to Deadline.
Securing a 22-episode order, the show is the first series the network has renewed for next season.
"Grimm," which is inspired by Grimm’s Fairy Tales, fuses elements of fantasy to a crime drama format and chronicles a dark but fantastical world in which fairy tale characters exist.
The series follows detective Nick Burckhardt (David Giuntoli) as he embraces his family's legacy of protecting mankind from the supernatural creatures of the world. He is aided by a reformed werewolf, Eddie Monroe (Silas Weir Mitchell), who has mastered his race's dark impulses.
"Buffy the Vampire Slayer" and "Angel" writer David Greenwalt serves as co-writer and executive producer of the show alongside Jim Kouf, who also penned episodes of "Angel." Sean Hayes and Todd Milliner ("Will & Grace") also hold executive producing duties.
Universal Television and Hazy Mills Productions spearhead the series.
