"Grimm" is coming to TNT. The top-rated drama network has closed a deal with NBCUniversal Television & New Media Distribution that gives TNT exclusive off-net cable rights to the hit series. TNT plans to begin airing episodes from the first three seasons of "Grimm" in early 2015, with season four episodes available to join the lineup in fall 2015.

" 'Grimm' puts a fresh spin on the traditional crime procedural with an otherworldly premise and compelling storytelling that appeal to young adults," said Deborah K. Bradley, senior vice president, head of program acquisitions, content strategy and licensing for Turner Broadcasting System Inc. " 'Grimm' will be a great addition to TNT's lineup as the network continues to expand its reach with high-quality genre programming."

"We are thrilled that TNT will bring 'Grimm's' clever writing and creative storytelling to its audience, continuing our strong content relationship with Turner Entertainment Networks," said Bruce Casino, executive vice president, NBCUniversal TV & New Media Distribution.

Set to launch its fourth season Oct. 24, NBC's "Grimm" is a drama series inspired by the classic "Grimm Brother's Fairy Tales." The show centers on Portland homicide detective Nick Burkhardt (David Giuntoli), who discovers he's descended from an elite line of criminal profilers known as Grimms. He soon finds his responsibilities as a detective increasingly at odds with his new responsibilities as a Grimm. Also starring: Russell Hornsby as Hank, Bitsie Tulloch as Juliette, Silas Weir Mitchell as Monroe, Sasha Roiz as Captain Sean Renard, Reggie Lee as Sgt. Drew Wu, Bree Turner as Rosalee and Claire Coffee as Adalind.
