For some godforsaken reason, “Hemlock Grove” will premiere on Friday, July 11. The Netflix Original Series that is based on the novel by Brian McGreevy, will enter its second season this year.
All ten episodes of the one-hour series starring Famke Janssen, Bill Skarsgård, Landon Liboiron and Dougray Scott will be available at launch in all territories where Netflix is available — U.S., Canada, the UK, Ireland, Latin America, the Nordics and the Netherlands. The series also stars Madeline Brewer, Madeleine Martin, Joel de la Fuente and Tiio Horn.
“Hemlock Grove” is a supernatural 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 (Skarsgård), and gypsy newcomer and outsider, Peter Rumancek (Liboiron). Each holds a monstrous secret that has been unleashed.
Season two continues with the town coming to grips with the shocking massacre incurred by one of its deadliest creatures. Roman and Peter are now faced with new responsibilities and the realities that come with adulthood. Roman’s relationship with his mother (Janssen) is all but dead as he struggles with his unwanted Upir birthright and the disappearance of his sister, Shelley (Martin). Peter moves in with Destiny (Horn) and is forced to get a job after his mother is sent away. Meanwhile, in search of a new life, newcomer Miranda Cates (Madeline Brewer), embarks on Hemlock Grove with an unknowingly profound effect on Peter and Roman. And Norman (Scott), still reeling from the loss of his family, must face the harsh truths that are uncovered about those he still loves.
“Season two of ‘Hemlock Grove’ is a hot mix of passion, intrigue and supernatural thrills that come together in mysterious and riveting ways,” said Ted Sarandos, Chief Content Officer at Netflix. “The intensity and suspense take things to a whole new level and open doors to a brand new chapter that our members are going to love.”
“Hemlock Grove” comes from executive producer Eli Roth.
“I cannot wait for fans to see what’s in store for season two – it is going to blow away all expectations,” said Roth. “Netflix has been an incredible partner, and whenever we wanted to take the story in a dangerous direction, they encouraged us to go even further – into a scarier, darker, and sexier place. We guarantee you won’t see anything like this anywhere else on television.”
