Netflix original series and supernatural thriller Hemlock Grove is set to return for its second season on July 11th. Fans have been waiting for a while for this one, as it wasn’t initially clear whether or not the show would be renewed. Thankfully it was, and now that the premiere date is upon us we have some new details and pictures from the upcoming season.
The show stars Famke Janssen (“X-Men”), Bill Skarsgård (“Simon & The Oaks”), Landon Liboiron (“Terra Nova”) and Dougray Scott (“Mission Impossible II”) with returning season one cast including Madeleine Martin (“Californication”), Joel de la Fuente (“Law & Order: SVU”) and Tiio Horn (“18 to Life”). Orange Is The New Black‘s Madeline Brewer joins the cast this season and heading up the production is new showrunner/executive producer, Charles “Chic” Eglee (“The Walking Dead,” “Dexter”).
Check out the official synopsis and pictures from the upcoming season below:
“Hemlock Grove” is a supernatural thriller which explores the strange happenings in a small Pennsylvania town. The show focuses on the unlikely friendship between the founding family’s young heir, Roman Godfrey (Skarsgård), and gypsy newcomer and outsider, Peter Rumancek (Liboiron). Each holds a monstrous secret that has been unleashed. 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 (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.”
Season one was supremely dark and disturbing and touted one of the most bad-ass werewolf transformations that I’ve ever seen (seriously, you should check it out…but if you have a weak stomach, then DO NOT check it out) , so I’m excited to see where this season takes us. Also, if you’re an American Horror Story fan, this show is a great one for helping the between-seasons blues.
Season two of Hemlock Grove premieres with ten episodes only on Netflix on Friday, July 11th at 12:01 AM PT.
