Update2 : It’s happening. Netflix has made it official.
Update: Netflix hints that season 2 likely (kind of).
Last month, we reported that while a second season for Hemlock Grove had yet to be announced, one was “highly likely”. Now we’ve heard directly from Netflix that it’s still up in the air.
“We haven’t made any decisions on renewal for Hemlock Grove,” a Netflix spokesperson tells WebProNews.
We said a second season was likely for several reasons. For one, Netflix boasted that the show outperformed the critically acclaimed House of Cards in the shows’ premiere weekends. House of Cards Season 2 is currently filming.
The show is getting viewers, and more importantly, they want more. Despite mixed reviews, the show has an audience. Yahoo recently revealed that searches for “hemlock grove season 2 release date” were spiking, and we continue to get comments every day on our earlier coverage of the topic. They pretty much unanimously beg for more Hemlock Grove.
Another reason that a second season could be in the cards is because Brian McGreevy, who wrote the novel the series is based upon has indicated that he would be working on sequels to the novel, which would mean more material to draw from.
Lilyhammer, Netflix’s first original series recently finished up shooting for its second season. A release date for that is also undetermined at this point.
