Count the days Grimm fans! The show is back on October 25 with a new season and a city full of zombies.

When we last saw Nick (David Giuntoli) and co they were fending off the undead in a container filled lock up (read cleverly designed trap) and not doing terribly well in the process. The season premiere “The Ungrateful Dead” picks up directly where we left off in season two.

Nick is coffin-bound and Juliette (Bitsie Tulloch), Monroe (Silas Weir Mitchell) and Rosalie (Bree Turner) are fighting for their lives.

We screened the premiere, courtesy of our friends at NBC, last week and can promise you the fun is only just starting.

Would you like to know more? Then check out these 5 things to know about the upcoming Oct. 25 episode. (Full disclosure: As fellow Grimm fans we don’t want to spoil your enjoyment of the episode with thoughtless spoilers. You  might like to consider what you will read below as ‘insightful teasers’ aimed at heightening your enjoyment of the episode, and not ruining it.)

1. How To Tell When a Container of Zombies is Dezombified

They stop popping – just like popcorn! Thank you Monroe.

2. All Hands on Deck

Hoping the season premiere will afford time for your favorite Grimm character? Well don’t worry, it really is a case of all hands on deck where the premiere is concerned. From Renard (Sasha Roiz) and Hank (Russell Hornsby) teaming up to Wu’s classic snark (check out that riot gear!) to Renard’s taking down of a couple of determined zombies Hexenbiest style, there really is something here for everyone. (Did we mention Renard’s fight scene? And before you ask, no shirts were harmed in the making of his rage. Sadly.)

3. What’s a Zombie Grimm Like?

In two words? Not pleasant! Zombie Nick has all the strength of a Grimm and all the reasoning of … well, one of the shuffling undead. Oh and did we mention he’s angry? There will be blood. And lots of twisted metal. And many many bodies.

4. Trial and Horror

Adalind (Claire Coffee) has seen her share of hardship lately but she seems willing to put up with just about anything in order to regain her Hexenbiest form. However this latest – and very bloody – trial may just tax the patience of even the most determined villain. Moment of unintentional hilarity: Check out Adalind’s digging implement in the field of flowers. Well she did ask for a hand!

5. Blood on His Hands?

What’s the worst thing that could happen to zombie Nick right now? If you ask Hank and Renard they will tell you it’s the taking of an innocent life. “There’s no coming back from something like that,” as Renard comments. Especially if that life is a child’s.

Catch Grimm’s grisly return Friday October 25 on NBC.
