'Hemlock Grove' renewed for Season 2 on Netflix
One of the first major original series to appear on the Netflix streaming service, "Hemlock Grove" is a bizarre and creepy gothic horror piece set in a small Pennsylvania town. With murders, monsters and a whole lot of mystery, the main story focuses on the friendship between the wealthy Roman Godfrey and a secretive newcomer, Peter Rumancek.
For Season 2, the series will add a new showrunner, Charles Eglee ( "The Walking Dead," "Dexter," "The Shield"). He will join executive producers Eli Roth ( "Hostel"), Brian McGreevy, Lee Shipman, Eric Newman and Michael Connolly.
"The worldwide fan response to 'Hemlock Grove' was phenomenal," said 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 1 was just a warm up for what we have in store for Season 2. Get ready to be scared in ways you never expected."
"Hemlock Grove" stars Famke Janssen, Bill Skarsgard, Landon Liboiron, Freya Tingley, and Dougray Scott.
