As he tries to hide the dangers of his newfound calling from his fiancée, Juliette Silverton, (Bitsie Tulloch, quarterlife), and his partner, Hank Griffin (Russell Hornsby, Lincoln Heights), he becomes ever more entrenched in the ancient rivalries and alliances of the Grimm world. Also starring are Silas Weir Mitchell (Prison Break), Reggie Lee (Persons Unknown) and Sasha Roiz (Caprica).
