One Grimm his on his way out, but another may still have a future with NBC.

Nick Burkhardt (David Giuntoli) is currently Portland's eminence grise when it comes to keeping Oregon's wesen in line, but, much to our dismay, his tale will end with the season 6 series finale. Despite Grimm's cancellation, the series' execs are holding out hope for a spinoff. With such a rich mythology to draw on, there are still plenty of stories to be told.

Should series creator David Greenwalt get his wish, Trubel (Jacqueline Toboni) will be the one providing the narrative.

"We always thought that Jacqueline should have her own spinoff," Greenwalt said at San Diego Comic-Con back in July. "We felt that when we created her."

Even as the writers were staring down a 13-episode season and a potential cancellation, Greenwalt and co. were still planning on chasing the spinoff dream, particularly considering Trubel's popularity.

"We're pushing for that," executive producer Jim Kouf said. "Then [Toboni] would be a regular."

In the meantime, the Scooby Gang has bigger fish to fry. Set to return in January, Grimm's final episodes will see Nick take on Renard (Sasha Roiz). The premiere will pick up milliseconds after the events of the finale, which means you can expect a little fisticuffs before the opening credits.

"He's face to face with Renard, so this could go two ways. Will there be a negotiation? Will Nick think this through? Or is he so furious at Renard for taking his child away that he'll just go crazy?" Giuntoli teased, according to TV Insider. "I would imagine the first scene in Season 6 will be a real melee with Nick and Renard. Of course, Renard is the one with the sword."
