I could only make it through the first episodes of Netflix’s “Hemlock Grove,” despite the fact that I left the set of the show intrigued and dying to see it. So hopefully by the time Season 2 rolls around they’ll have found a way to integrate the disparate components of the universe into a more satisfying narrative.
Showrunner Charles H. (Chic) Eglee (“The Walking Dead,” “Dexter,” “The Shield”) joins the series as executive producer in season two. Eli Roth is still on as an executive producer adding, “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. 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.”
Hopefully Eglee guy can tame this messy beast.
The series stars Famke Janssen (X-Men), Bill Skarsgård, Landon Liboiron (“Terra Nova”), Freya Tingley, and Dougray Scott (Mission Impossible II). The second season will consist of 10 episodes that will go into production later this year. The sophomore season of “Hemlock Grove” will premiere in 2014.
