A Tale Dark & Grimm[2] is a computer animated streaming television series based on the children's book of the same name by Adam Gidwitz. Developed for Netflix by Doug Langdale and Simon Otto, the series premiered on October 8, 2021.[3] Netflix did not renew the show for a second season. [4]


A trio of talking crows narrate the real story of Hansel and Gretel, who are shown as a prince and a princess, who ran away from their parents and search for a new and happy family. The pair will go on a winding and wickedly witty tale with elements of several other stories written by Brothers Grimm.
