Netflix has confirmed that Hemlock Grove Season 2 will be released on Friday 11th July, promising a “hot mix of passion and thrills”.
All 10 new episodes of the one-hour supernatural thriller starring Famke Janssen, Bill Skarsgård and Dougray Scott will premiere at one midnight past midnight in all Netflix territories worldwide.
The Emmy-nominated Netflix original series was created by executive producer Eli Roth and is based on Brian McGreevy’s novel of the same name and produced by Gaumont International Television. The first season was part-brilliance, part-hokum, but proved popular enough to be resurrected for another run.
Season 2 of Hemlock Grove continues with the town coming to grips with the shocking massacre 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), arrives in 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.
“I cannot wait for fans to see what’s in store for season two – it is going to blow away all expectations,” adds Executive Producer Eli 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.”
“Season two of Hemlock Grove is a hot mix of passion, intrigue and supernatural thrills that come together in mysterious and riveting ways,” says Ted Sarandos, Chief Content Officer at Netflix, adding that it will take things to “a whole new level”.
After we saw the level the first season of Hemlock Grove took things to, we’re not sure anyone is ready for that.
Now, if you’ll excuse us, we’re off to get “hot mix of passion, intrigue and supernatural thrills” put on a t-shirt.
