We haven't seen the last of Hemlock Grove's puking, disruptive boob-touching, and eye-popping werewolfing! Netflix has renewed the Eli Roth-helmed horror series for Season 2, ordering 10 episodes with a target launch date of 2014. The company has also announced that Charles H. Eglee will join the series as an executive producer and showrunner; Eglee's previous EP credits include The Walking Dead, Dexter, and The Shield.
Because Netflix has yet to release any hard data with regard to how many people are watching any of its original series—which now include House of Cards and the recently released fourth season of Arrested Development, with Orange Is the New Black slated to launch in July—I can't really tell you how successful Hemlock Grove is, at least from a business standpoint. But Roth can! Here's his official, company-approved statement, straight from the press release.
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 1 was just a warmup for what we have in store for Season 2. Get ready to be scared in ways you never expected.
Well gee, when you put it that way... I probably still won't watch it, since I personally didn't feel compelled to watch much of Season 1. Did you? If so, will you be back for Season 2?
