He's foiled a cannibalistic clown, correctly identified a mid-century armoire (tougher than it sounds) and even caught Mary Choppins in the act, but nothing could prepare Marvin Flute (Jon Hamm), the self-proclaimed "world's most smartest detective", for his toughest case to date: cracking his wife and son.

Grimsburg season 1 debuts on Fox on Sunday, January 7. Americans abroad can watch Grimsburg season 1 from anywhere with a VPN.

The ultimate playboy cop, Marvin's a magnet for all manner of trouble, whether that be one of Grimsburg's knife-wielding thugs, incinerated buildings or lascivious damsels in distress, but in his bid to win his ex-wife Harmony back he's going to have to face a challenge altogether more daunting.

Spending time with Stan, his angst-ridden son, is Marvin's idea of a nightmare, but there'll be no happy ending for the Flute clan unless he can learn how to become a good father. Fortunately for Marvin, it appears that the road to domestic harmony is paved with a rogues' gallery of villains.

Also starring Christina Hendricks, Alan Tudyk and Patton Oswalt, it's already been renewed for a second season, and here's what you need to know to watch Grimsburg season 1 from anywhere in the world.

How to watch Grimsburg season 1 from anywhere

Just because Fox and Hulu aren't available everywhere doesn't mean you can't watch Grimsburg season 1 if you're away from home. Watching along with the rest of the internet can be pretty easy. With the right VPN (virtual private network), you can stream the show from wherever you go.

Not sure which VPN is right for you? We've tested many different services and our pick for the best VPN overall is ExpressVPN. It offers superb speeds and excellent customer service.

Using a VPN is incredibly simple.

1. Install the VPN of your choice. As we've said, ExpressVPN is our favorite.

2. Choose the location you wish to connect to in the VPN app. For instance, if you're in the U.K. and want to view a U.S. service, you'd select U.S. from the list.

3. Sit back and enjoy the action. Fire up your website or streaming service of choice and tune in.
