PORTLAND -- Some big reveals are in store for the mid-season return of NBC’s Grimm, and the actors said they were anxious to share the action-packed episode with fans.

“It's been a long time, we've all been waiting for it,” said actor Silas Weir Mitchell, who plays Monroe.

David Giuntoli said while they were shooting a fight scene, he accidentally jammed his knee into fellow actor Sasha Roiz’s face.

“Sasha and I rehearsed quite a bit with our respective stunt people and when we got together, there was just nothing professional happening,” said Giuntoli. “It was just full body blows – like two bears on roller skates."

Many fans are wondering why they've had to wait all winter for new episodes, and there’s a simple answer for that.

“We ran out of episodes," Giuntoli said. "So we had to make some new episodes,”

The show’s writers basically went non-stop for about a year and a half. Weir Mitchell said “They wrote about 40 episodes in a row and that requires enormous amount of work and energy."

So then the cast and crew took some time off. Giuntoli traveled to Kenya and France, but also took in a few Trail Blazers games in Portland.

“I’m a Blazers fan now,” he said with a smile.

Ten new episodes of "Grimm" will air Friday nights at 9 on KGW NewsChannel 8.
