The Grimm Reality, a new fairy tale urban thriller series from Netflix, is likely inspired by the Brothers Grimm’s folk tales. Till Kleinert (Der Samurai) and Erol Yesilkaya created the new series (Souls). Sven Bohse (Dark Woods) and Florian Dietrich are well-known directors of The Grimm Reality (Toubab). Doghaus Film and Wiedemann & Berg Film collaborated on the project for Netflix. Here’s everything else we know about The Grimm Reality on Netflix:
What is The Grimm Reality’s plot?
The Grimm Reality’s plot is currently unknown, but it is described as a “fairy tale urban fantasy thriller.”
Based on the title, we can assume that The Grimm Reality’s plot is inspired by the Brothers Grimm and their collection of old German folklore, which includes Rapunzel, Hansel & Gretel, Cinderella, The Frog Prince, Little Red Riding Hood, and many more characters we know and love today. It’s also worth noting that the originals were far darker and far less family-friendly than Disney made them out to be.
In addition, the description’s use of the word “urban” implies that the new iterations of these tales will take place in contemporary Berlin. Our best guess for The Grimm Reality’s plot is that it is a contemporary retelling of the timeless folktales that the Brothers Grimm collected and archived.
Who is in the cast of The Grimm Reality?
The Grimm Reality’s official leads have yet to be announced, but we do know that several actors are attached to the project. Hyun Wanner, Patrick Isermeyer, Eidin Jalali, and Dennis Scheuermann are their names. Wanner is portraying a character named Jae Price in their respective roles. Of course, this is not the entire cast, and more will be announced in the future.
When will The Grimm Reality be available on Netflix?
In Berlin, Germany, the Grimm Reality for Netflix is currently in full production. According to what we know, filming began in early November 2022 and will last through 2023.
The Grimm Reality’s release date hasn’t been formally confirmed by Netflix, but our sources indicate that it will happen in 2023. The Grimm Reality on Netflix will have eight one-hour episodes. It’s not clear if the eight episodes make up a single narrative or if this is an anthology series where each episode tells a different folktale.
