Netflix axes finished Grimm Reality from Dark's creators

Jun 28, 2024 1:00 PM

Netflix has cancelled "The Grimm Reality," an urban fantasy drama from the producers of the hit series "Dark," despite the show having completed filming. The decision is surprising given the involvement of the successful production team Wiedemann & Berg, who previously produced "Dark." The Grimm Reality was intended to be a fairy tale urban fantasy thriller inspired by Brothers Grimm folk tales. However, Netflix has not disclosed the reasons behind the cancellation.

The reasons for Netflix canceling "The Grimm Reality" remain unclear as the streaming giant has not provided specific details about this decision.

"Dark," which "The Grimm Reality" creators also produced, premiered in 2017 and became Netflix's first German-language original series. The show received critical acclaim for its intricate writing, compelling acting, and unique storytelling, concluding in 2020 with a highly praised third season. The same production team's involvement in "The Grimm Reality" raised expectations, making its cancellation even more unexpected for fans.

It's wild that Netflix pulled the plug on The Grimm Reality at the last minute, especially with the Dark team behind it. It makes you wonder what really led to this decision—budget issues, creative differences, or something else

Man, that's a huge shocker With the same team behind Dark working on it, you would've thought The Grimm Reality had a success recipe already baked in.
