GOTHIC THRILLER “HEMLOCK GROVE”

BACK ON NETFLIX FOR A SECOND SEASON

Charles Eglee Joins Season Two as Executive Producer and Showrunner

Ten New Episodes to Premiere in 2014

(Beverly Hills, CA – June 19, 2013) – The Netflix Original Series “Hemlock Grove,” a riveting and eerie mystery from executive producer Eli Roth and based on Brian McGreevy’s novel of the same name, will return with a second season next year. Seasoned showrunner Charles H. (Chic) Eglee (“The Walking Dead,” “Dexter,” “The Shield”) joins the popular series as executive producer in season two.

 

"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.”

 

"We are thrilled to be working with Netflix on the second season of 'Hemlock Grove', a show that the audience has enthusiastically embraced," commented Katie O'Connell, CEO of Gaumont International Television.

 

The series stars Famke Janssen (“X-Men”), Bill Skarsgård (“Simon & The Oaks”), Landon Liboiron (“Terra Nova”), Freya Tingley (“X”), and Dougray Scott (“Mission Impossible II”). The second season will consist of 10 episodes that will go into production later this year. The sophomore season of “Hemlock Grove” will premiere in 2014.

 

“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.

 

 

The drama series is the first foray into television by internationally acclaimed horror master Eli Roth (“Hostel,” “Cabin Fever”).  It was developed by Brian McGreevy & Lee Shipman and is executive produced by Roth, Eglee, McGreevy & Shipman, Eric Newman and Michael Connolly. The one-hour gothic thriller is produced by Gaumont International Television for Netflix.

  • mike

    great news

  • Tommy

    Fantastic Show. It was torture making myself wait a few days inbetween episodes… Can’t wait for season 2!

  • BG

    Yay!!! Loved the first season!

  • Brian

    This is wonderful.

    Netflix is 2/2 with House of Cards and Hemlock Grove. Hopefully Orange is the New Black keeps up this momentum. If Netflix can produce 4-6 new series/seasons per year that are up to this quality then it will become a true TV killer… only HBO will be able to compete.

  • Tony JJ

    Have yet to watch House of Cards or Hemlock Grove, but they are definitely both on my must watch list. Those and Orange is the new black which looks great.

  • Eric_Philly

    [Spoiler alert]
    I hope that any of the female characters will return… unlikely, since only a couple survived.
