With Grimm returning for season 3 in October, one of the show's executive producers revealed three hints about what the show has planned.
Viewers last saw Nick become infected with a zombie slime at the end of season 2, leading many to wonder how the show was going to carry on with its lead character being a zombie.
"It's going to take a couple of scripts to get Nick back into shape," executive producer Jim Kouf told Entertainment Weekly Wednesday. He added that it will take a group effort to assist Nick and that the experience will change him.
"Like with any near-death experience or medical issue that someone deals with, it kind of changes their lives. You have a new perspective on things, so Nick is going to have to deal with the residual effects," Kouf revealed.
As for the more romantic side of Grimm, Kouf revealed that that are no plans to reconnect love interests Juliette and Renard, but he said they weren't ruling it out for the future.
"We allow the characters to kind of develop in a natural way," he said, explaining their writing process. "As we create the characters and we work them through the story, sometimes, suddenly someone has a different need that we didn't know they had. And we allow ourselves to play those needs out."
Nick's partner, Hank, may actually be the one to find love this season, Kouf teased. "He's been kind of single for a while, so we plan to get him hooked up again." Hank had a brief relationship with Adalind Schade in season 1 but hasn't had a lasting relationship with anyone since.
Enstars reported Wednesday that producers are trying to bring Kelly, Nick's mother, back for season 3 but actress Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio is too busy to commit to a guest arc. She was last seen in the second episode of season 2.
Grimm will be premiering on Oct. 25 at 9 p.m. on NBC.
