Netflix has given Eli Roth‘s horror thriller Hemlock Grove the green light for a second season! I was thinking it won’t get renewed because the first season was just average and there is nothing impressive about the show, I can’t put my finger on what is wrong with the show but it’s not something i be excited about .
The series is based on Brian McGreevy’s gothic horror novel of the same name, and it and explores the strange supernatural happenings in a small Pennsylvania town involving vampires, werewolves and other mythical creatures. Famke Janssen and Bill Skarsgård starred in the first season, and I assume several of the characters from the first season will be back for the second.
Charles H. (Chic) Eglee (The Walking Dead, Dexter) will be joining the series as the showrunner, and this time around we’ll only get 10 episodes instead of 13, which season one had. Roth had this to say in a statement,
The worldwide fan response to Hemlock Grove was phenomenal. 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.
I guess we’ll see, but I don’t think the story is really all that scary in the first place. Cindy Holland, VP of Original Content at Netflix added,
In its first season, Eli, Brian, Lee and the team did an incredible job of introducing viewers to a unique world of memorable characters. 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.
So did you like the First Season and are you excited about the Second Season ??
