Now in its third season, this series inspired by Grimm's Fairy Tales has Portland homicide detective Nick Burkhardt also a criminal profiler known as a "Grimm," who keeps a balance between humanity and mythological creatures. This season, Nick  struggles with having killed an innocent while under a zombie spell, and his fiancée Juliette’s memory begins to return, leading her to join reformed werewolf Monroe, confidante Rosalee, and Nick’s police buddy Hank in helping Nick as a monster-hunter. Meanwhile, Adalind is determined to get her powers back in exchange for her unborn child, while after news of his brother’s murder, Renard is resolved to find the people responsible for his death.

Violence on Grimm is often intense, with battles using swords and other ancient weapons, as well as guns and some frightening-looking monsters. The third season continues to focus on bloody and grisly scenes. The season premiere featured Adalind performing a ritual that involved the mutilation of a corpse and the removal of its heart. The third episode involved exploding stomachs. Language used includes “hell,” “damn,” and “son of a bitch.” Sex on the show involved sexual innuendo between Nick and Juliette.

Grimm is not recommended for viewers under age 18.
