Grimm is going undead. The third season of the hit NBC fantasy series is still a few months away, but we have a first look at the show’s star in full-on zombie mode.

The second-season finale ended with Nick (David Giuntoli) zombified and tossed into a coffin for export to Europe. Needless to say — that’s one heck of a cliffhanger.

So, what can we expect from zombified Nick? Apparently pale skin, red eyes and some freaky-looking poses that actually succeed at being creepy.

Executive producer Jim Kouf wouldn’t tease much on how they plan to resolve the zombie plot line, but did say that whatever happens will have some long-term effects on Nick:

"If Nick does survive this zombie state, he's going to be very dangerous. There will be residual effects that will change him in a huge way."

Check out the first official pic of full-on zombie Nick above, along with this video showing how the effects crew pulled off the wicked transformation.

The third season of Grimm is set to premiere Friday, Oct. 25, on NBC.
