Hemlock Grove will be returning for a second season as just announced by Netflix. The gothic thriller was developed by Brian McGreevy (also the author of the novel it’s based on) and Lee Shipman. Season one was executive produced by Eli Roth, with Charles H Eglee (The Walking Dead, Dexter) joining season two as executive producer/showrunner.
Netflix says production on season two will begin later this year, and 10 new episodes will air in 2014.
“The worldwide fan response to Hemlock Grove was phenomenal” said executive producer Eli Roth. “Netflix members loved the potent combination of sexy monsters, mystery, and the dark family soap opera that ended with a huge twist, leaving audiences worldwide totally shocked. Season One was just a warm up for what we have in store for season two. Get ready to be scared in ways you never expected.”
“In its first season, Eli, Brian, Lee and the team did an incredible job of introducing viewers to a unique world of memorable characters,” said Cindy Holland, Vice President of Original Content at Netflix. “Chic’s addition to the show, and his experience on such fan favorites as The Shield, The Walking Dead and Dexter, will heighten the intensity of the mystery that grips Hemlock Grove.”
Season one starred Famke Janssen, Bill Skarsgård, Landon Liboiron, Freya Tingley, and Dougray Scott.
Hemlock Grove is a gothic horror thriller which explores the strange happenings in a small Pennsylvania town. The show focuses on the unlikely friendship between the founding family’s young heir, Roman Godfrey, and the relative newcomer and outsider, Peter Rumancek. Each holds a monstrous secret that has been unleashed.
