As previously reported, Netflix announced today that Hemlock Grove: Season 2 will debut on July 11th, three months later in the year than the first season's debut.
This season will have fewer episodes with just ten, but if comments from executive producer Eli Roth (whose credibility in the horror genre is nearly unmatched in my opinion) are any indication, fans are in for a wild ride.
"I cannot wait for fans to see what's in store for season two – it is going to blow away all expectations," he said. "Netflix has been an incredible partner, and whenever we wanted to take the story in a dangerous direction, they encouraged us to go even further - into a scarier, darker, and sexier place. We guarantee you won't see anything like this anywhere else on television."
Last year, he made similar comments, saying the season would have “so many cool surprises”. Considering how the first season ended, it's probably fair to throw any expectations out the window.
Today's announcement from Netflix says this about it:
Season two continues with the town coming to grips with the shocking massacre incurred by one of its deadliest creatures. Roman and Peter are now faced with new responsibilities and the realities that come with adulthood. Roman's relationship with his mother (Janssen) is all but dead as he struggles with his unwanted Upir birthright and the disappearance of his sister, Shelley (Martin). Peter moves in with Destiny (Horn) and is forced to get a job after his mother is sent away. Meanwhile, in search of a new life, newcomer Miranda Cates (Madeline Brewer), embarks on Hemlock Grove with an unknowingly profound effect on Peter and Roman. And Norman (Scott), still reeling from the loss of his family, must face the harsh truths that are uncovered about those he still loves.
Netflix says it will be providing more info about Season 2 here, as well as across the show's various social media accounts.
