NBC picks up full series of Grimm

NBC has ordered an additional nine episodes of Grimm – picking up the fantasy drama for a full series.

Grimm is the first new hour-long series to be picked up for a full series by NBC.

The fantasy detective drama airs on Friday evenings and has pulled in solid ratings since its launch – it certainly fares much better than some other Friday evening shows such as Fringe.

NBC has so far struggled in the hour-long format to find a hit new series this season with The Playboy Club quickly dispatched and Prime Suspect battling ever decreasing ratings.
