NBC announced today that the season debut of Chuck and the series premiere of Grimm will both air on October 28th, as part of their Halloween-themed programming that week.
UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. – September 30, 2011 – NBC builds two nights of Halloween-themed programming as the final season debut of “Chuck” (Fridays, 8-9 p.m. ET) and the series premiere of new drama “Grimm” (Fridays, 9-10 p.m. ET) will begin on Friday, October 28. Likewise, Halloween-themed episodes of NBC’s Thursday-night comedies – “Community,” “Parks and Recreation,” “The Office” and “Whitney” — will be telecast October 27 in recognition of the holiday.
Everyone’s favorite secret agent is back in the final season of the action-comedy “Chuck” as series star Zachary Levi (“Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel”) returns as Chuck Bartowski — a regular guy who also happens to be the government’s most vital secret agent.
“Grimm” is a new drama inspired by the Grimm’s Fairy Tales and stars David Giuntoli (“Turn the Beat Around”) as a Portland homicide detective who discovers that he is descended from an elite line of criminal profilers known as “Grimms” who are charged with keeping balance between humanity and ominous mythological creatures.
This is a change from the previously announced October 21 debut date for Chuck, so hopefully your viewing schedules and DVRs will adjust accordingly
