'Grimm' returns with mommy issues

When procedural-crime-and-fantasy show "Grimm" returns for its second season, fans can expect new shockers. Star David Giuntoli, who plays detective and resident Grimm Nick Burkhardt, visited TODAY Monday morning to tease the upcoming action.

"We have a lot of surprises," he said. Among them? Burkhardt's relationship with his long lost (until late last season) and very much alive mother.

"(We'll) meet my mom. I don't really like her because she 'pretended' to be dead for a very long time," Giuntoli explained.

Watch the clip above to learn more about what the actor calls "Law & Order: Special Fairy Tales Unit."

The second season premiere of "Grimm" airs Aug. 13 at 10 p.m. on NBC.
