That “Grimm” Season 5 would develop without Bitsie Tulloch as a regular member of the cast is possible. Show bosses David Greenwalt and Jim Kouf have both said Juliette is gone. This developed even as Bitsie Tulloch once expressed that she could play Juliette Silverton for many years.

Kouf told TVLine that Juliette is dead. In an effort to clarify whether this only means the old human Juliette is gone, the publication asked if Bitsie Tulloch would be around in “Grimm” Season 5. Both Greenwalt and Kouf said no.

In an interview with Zap2It in December, when Tulloch may have already filmed her first Hexenbiest transformation scene, the actress spoke about staying in “Grimm” for the long haul. The interview was about her off-screen romance with David Giuntoli, who plays Nick Burkhardt in “Grimm.”

"It's pretty public now that I'm dating David, so that's kind of out of the bag," Tulloch told Zap2It. She also talked about the charm of Portland and how the series could go on for many years.

“We could conceivably be doing this until we're all in wheelchairs and using canes and hobbling around,” Tulloch said in the same interview, adding that the advantage of creating fairy tale adaptations is “(t)here’s just so much to do.”

In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Kouf said the death of Bitsie Tulloch’s Juliette Silverton is a “big twist.” In the same THR interview, Greenwalt said the discussion with Tulloch regarding Juliette’s death went “fine,” and “she’s terrific.”

Bitsie Tulloch is appearing in three movies post “Grimm” Season 4. She is in “Chronic,” a film about a nurse, written and directed by Michel Franco; in “Concussion,” a sports movie which also stars Will Smith, written and directed by Peter Landesman; and in “Dead Draw,” a crime thriller written and directed by Brian Klemesrud. All three films are slated for 2015, with “Chronic” already running in France.

"Grimm" Season 5 is expected to premiere on NBC around the last quarter of the year. It remains to be seen whether the show will feature a time jump or pick up where it left off in the Season 4 finale.
