Netflix Announces Eli Roth’s Hemlock Grove returns in July.
Hemlock Grove is coming back to Netflix. The supernatural thriller series from executive producer Eli Roth will make all 10 of the season 2’s episodes on Friday, July 11.
The trailer just shows the mesmerizing Olivia Godfrey, played by Famke Janssen from X-Men, morphing through the screen as a snippet of music plays. I think they’re singing, “it feels better lying down,” which I’m not sure if you’re supposed do right after taking hemlock.
Hemlock Grove also stars Bill Skarsgård from Simon & The Oaks, Landon Liboiron from Terra Nova, plays a wolf man and Dougray Scott from Mission Impossible II.
Hemlock Grove follows the supernatural incidents of Hemlock Grove, Pennsylvania. The small town is reeling from a massacre. Last season was based on the book by Brian McGreevy. This season McGreevy will veer off into newer and darker corners.
The show will be run by Charles H. “Chic” Eglee, who worked on The Shield, Dexter and The Walking Dead. Hemlock Grove was nominated for a special effects Emmy last year.
Eli Roth told the media “I cannot wait for fans to see what’s in store for Season 2 – it is going to blow away all expectations. 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.”
