Netflix Gives ‘Hemlock Grove’ Third and Final Season
“Hemlock Grove” is coming to an end. Netflix has ordered a third and final season of the original series — a horror/thriller from executive producer Eli Roth — which will air next year on the streaming service.
Produced by Gaumont International Television and based on author Brian McGreevy’s novel of the same name, “Hemlock Grove” focuses on the strange, supernatural, and murderous things happening in the fictional town of Hemlock Grove. The series’ cast includes Famke Janssen, Bill Skarsgard, and Landon Liboiron.
Showrunner Charles H. “Chic” Eglee will return for the final season, which will consist of 10 hour-long episodes.
“We are so grateful to the fans of ‘Hemlock Grove’ who have championed the series so intensely over two seasons,” said Roth in a statement. “We are looking forward to taking the last and final season into some dark and unexpected places, and to giving viewers the killer finale you’d come to expect from ‘Hemlock Grove.’”
“Hemlock Grove” was Roth’s first foray into television. The show was developed by McGreevy and Lee Shipman, and is executive produced by Roth, Eglee, McGreevy & Shipman, Eric Newman, and Michael Connolly.
While Netflix’s efforts in original programming have largely been lauded by critics, “Hemlock Grove” has been one of the shows to not get a lot of love. Across two seasons, the series has scored 44 and 38, respectively, on Metacritic. That said, according to Netflix, the series has been popular among its viewers. When it first premiered, “Hemlock Grove” had a better opening weekend than “House of Cards,” the company said at the time.Tags: Eli Roth, Famke Janssen, Gaumont International Television, Hemlock Grove, Horror, Netflix, Netflix Original, thriller
