Eli Roth’s horror series for Netflix, “Hemlock Grove,” will return on Friday, July 11.
Based on Brian McGreevy’s novel of the same name and produced by Gaumont International Television, “Hemlock Grove” follows the strange, supernatural happenings in a small Pennsylvania town. The series stars Famke Janssen (“X-Men”), Bill Skarsgard (“Simon & The Oaks”), Landon Liboiron (“Terra Nova”), and Dougray Scott (“Mission Impossible II”). Madeline Brewer, from fellow Netflix original series “Orange Is the New Black,” will join the cast for season two.
The second season, which will run for 10 hour-long episodes, will be available in all Netflix territories at 12:01pm ET on July 11.
“Hemlock Grove” was developed by McGreevy and Lee Shipman, and is executive produced by Roth, Charles Eglee, McGreevy and Shipman, Eric Newman, and Michael Connolly.
It’s the first of two original series Gaumont International Television has sold to Netflix. The second is “Narcos,” an hour-long drama about the rise and fall of Colombian drug kingpin Pablo Escobar.
