The Netflix Original Series Hemlock Grove, 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) 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.“
The series stars Famke Janssen, Bill Skarsgård, Landon Liboiro, Freya Tingley, and Dougray Scott. The second season will consist of 10 episodes that will go into production later this year.
The sophomore season will premiere in 2014.
