Netflix Renews 'Hemlock Grove' for Season 2

        Wednesday, June 19 - 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 in 2014. Additionally, Charles H. (Chic) Eglee will join the popular series as an executive producer and showrunner for season two.

        "The worldwide fan response to Hemlock Grove was phenomenal," said 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."
        "In its first season, Eli, Brian, Lee [Shipman] and the team did an incredible job of introducing viewers to a unique world of memorable characters," said Cindy Holland, Vice President of Original Content at Netflix. "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."
        "We are thrilled to be working with Netflix on the second season of Hemlock Grove, a show that the audience has enthusiastically embraced," commented Katie O'Connell, CEO of Gaumont International Television.
        The series stars Famke Janssen, Bill Skarsgård, Landon Liboiron, Freya Tingley and Dougray Scott. The second season will consist of 10 episodes that will go into production later this year with the episodes to debut on Netflix in early 2014.
