Though most of Netflix’s critical success has come on the back of political drama House of Cards and sitcom revival Arrested Development, the streaming company also dipped its toe into supernatural horror with Hemlock Grove last season. Now the series is coming back.
Season two of the supernatural horror drama will debut July 11 on Netflix, with the entire 10-episode season going live all at once. Gotta love the patented binge-watch approach. The first season seemed to be a mild-to-modest hit, but since Netflix doesn’t release viewership numbers, we’ll have to take the company’s word for it.
As for season two? It sounds like the action will pick up in the wake of the shocking finale from season one, which finally ramped up the action from the slow-boil approach that frustrated some fans along the way:
“Season 2 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.”
