Netflix has announced that a second season of Eli Roth’s horror series Hemlock Grove has been ordered.
The first season of the supernatural drama has proven a hit with committed Netflixers to the point where Netflix has greenlit a second one, intending to crank up the scare factor.
“The worldwide fan response to ‘Hemlock Grove’ was phenomenal” says executive producer Roth, famous for modern horror mainstays Hostel and Cabin Fever. “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.”
