Grimm hit a huge milestone on Tuesday, November 10th when it filmed its 100th episode, a major coup for any TV show. The NBC series celebrated hitting episode 100, which will air in 2016, with an evening cake-cutting ceremony attended by NBC Entertainment Chairman Bob Greenblatt, Oregon Governor Kate Brown and many other dignitaries, crew members and reporters in attendance.

"The show is distinctive and unique because it's shot in this city. It doesn't look like any other show on television, and that's what makes it special, and we couldn't be happier to be here," Greenblatt told the audience assembled in Grimm's Portland Police Department set.

Brown shared that Grimm has spent $250 million on the likes of crew members, local vendors and electric companies in the state over its five seasons of production, and said "this show has impacted and led the entire state like no other film or television production has ever done before."

"It not only takes hard work and talent. For a show to go, there's an element of luck. You can have all the grit and tenacity in the world, but there's absolutely an element of luck, so I am humbled by it. I am terrified. [laughs] I consider myself very grateful and fortunate."

Silas Weir Mitchell (Monroe)
"It's something I've never done in my life, and that's cool. I've never done 100 episodes of a show playing the same character, and it's an amazing experience. It's an interesting feeling for an actor. I've learned a lot about a lot of stuff, primarily the narrative structure of serialized television, and the way to shoot it. I feel like it's just been a hugely educational experience. ... Having done this many episodes, even more than the narrative structure, it's just the way to shoot eight pages in a way. It's incredible. It's been a real learning experience about how to do this, and that's what you want in life. You want challenging experiences that you learn from, and that's what this has been."

Bree Turner (Rosalee)
"Just having everyone here and just sort of feeling the scope of what we've done up here for 100 episodes, it's incredibly moving. This is a huge chunk of our life now, and being out of LA and relocating here for all of us has made it just exponentially more special in terms of really integrating fully into the experience here. It's a really special day. I think it's very personal."

Sasha Roiz (Renard)
"A lot of things. It means syndication. I'm just kind of taking it all in. It's really surreal. Even the sense of celebration, of this embrace that this city has given us already up to the governor, it's really a landmark. By any measure, certainly on TV these days, 100th is a rare thing. Very, very grateful."

Claire Coffee (Adalind)
"It just means I've had a job. I've been gainfully employed for five years, which is incredible. I'm so overwhelmingly grateful. I don't know what else to say. It's fantastic."

Russell Hornsby (Hank)
"Well it means I've been employed for five years, which as an actor is always a good thing. You can't get away from it, no matter how successful you become. It's just been a joy. It means more because it's in Portland than, for me, if it had been anywhere else, because we've actually been living here and sort of become a part of the fabric of the city. People have made homes here, we've made friends. I've been able to blend into the city, and that's been a joy.

Jacqueline Toboni (Trubel)
"I came into this job and it was like a dream come true. The cast feels like they have that reaching 100 as an incredible accomplishment. I can't even fathom what that's like, and being a part of it and a part of this family is unbelievable. I'm kind of lost of words a little bit. This crew absolutely deserves 100 episodes. They're the most amazing crew ever, and very hard-working, and the cast too. There's a reason you give them 100 episodes: it's because they're good and the show's good. I think we're doing stuff on TV that isn't done a lot on network TV. Cinematically I was just watching this season and the shots are amazing, and we're really producing episodes at a high caliber."

Reggie Lee (Sergeant Wu)
"It kind of sprung up on us out of nowhere. You do your work every day and then suddenly it's like, 'holy crap.' Even though we knew the 100th was coming up, it came here so fast. We're halfway through the season. I feel like we just got here. All the scenes kind of blend together, but seeing all this has made me a little bit emotional. You don't get to do this very often. As an actor you feel that. As a minority actor you feel that even more. From where we began, where I started -- I started off doing mostly features. It's tough to do anything television. I did Prison Break, I did a season of that, but to be here for five seasons, that's pretty crazy. And then to do it with people -- and I know we keep saying it over and over -- but to do it with people you love ... It's nice to be here together. We're intact, and we still love each other. Hopefully we'll be here for a while."

Bitsie Tulloch (Juliette)
"This is really a gratitude to NBC for keeping us alive, but mostly to our fans because we would not have made it without them and I think that having a fanbase that's sci-fi genre fans, they're the best; they're really loyal and they're super smart and they don't miss anything. They're just asking a bunch of really fun questions, like 'What's going to happen? Is she behind that door?' We'll see."

Jim Kouf (Co-Creator)
"Nobody expects to go to 100. You just don't know if there will be an audience for what you're doing. We thought we were doing something that was a lot of fun, and we found an audience that agrees with us, but still, 100 episodes is a long haul. It doesn't seem like it now because you think it went by so fast, but when you're in the middle of it you're going, 'Oh my God, it's a monster you just hold on to and hope you don't get eaten.' It means a lot to survive this long with the same cast and everybody still likes each other. We all get along, the crew gets along, so we're just really fortunate because it doesn't always work out that way. You can get 100 episodes and everybody hates each other and it's a monster to go to work every day, but it's not that way on this one."
