Netflix renews

PanARMENIAN.Net - Supernatural creatures in "Hemlock Grove" will continue haunting Netflix's subscribers for a second season. The streaming media has ordered 10 new episodes of the horror series, shorter than its 13-episode freshman run, AceShowbiz said.

"The worldwide fan response to Hemlock Grove was phenomenal," says executive producer Eli 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."

The "internationally acclaimed horror master," who brought "Hostel" and "Hostel: Part II" to movie theaters, further teases, "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."

Charles H. "Chic" Eglee, who has served as an executive producer on "The Walking Dead" and "Dexter", will join as executive producer and showrunner in season two. "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," says Cindy Holland, Vice President of Original Content at Netflix.

Based on Brian McGreevy's novel of the same title, "Hemlock Grove" is a gothic horror thriller which explores the strange happenings in a small Pennsylvania town. Famke Janssen, Bill Skarsgard and Dougray Scott star on the show.

Although it received generally mixed to negative reviews from critics, the horror series is well received by viewers. Following its debut on April 19, Netflix announced that "Hemlock Grove" was viewed by more members globally in its first weekend than was "House of Cards".
