Netflix renews 'Hemlock Grove'
Netflix will never tell us how "Hemlock Grove" actually did in terms of tangible viewership, but the answer seems to be "well enough to get renewed."
It was announced this week that a 10-episode second season of "Hemlock Grove" will begin production later this year and will premiere in 2014 with Chic Eglee joining the show as executive producer.
"The worldwide fan response to ‘Hemlock Grove’ was phenomenal" blurbs 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."
Adds Netflix Vice President for Original Content Cindy Holland, "In its first season, Eli, Brian [McGreevy], Lee [Shipman] and the team did an incredible job of introducing viewers to a unique world of memorable characters. 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."
Famke Janssen, Bill Skarsgård, Landon Liboiron, Freya Tingley and Dougray Scott are among the returning stars for the supernatural drama.
