<i>Hemlock Grove</i> to Return to Netflix for Second Season

Netflix has picked up Eli Roth’s horror series Hemlock Grove for a second season, Deadline is reporting.

The media streaming giant has been on a roll with original content lately, with its recent DreamWorks deal, the release of the much-anticipated Arrested Development Season 4 and shows like House of Cards and Hemlock. Its newest production, Orange Is The New Black, premieres July 11.

Now, Hemlock has been renewed for a second season and will return with 10 original episodes next year. Charles H. Eglee, the seasoned producer behind The Walking Dead and Dexter will join as the show’s executive producer.

Based on Brian McGreevy’s novel of the same name, Hemlock Grove centers around the strange events and secrets in a small Pennsylvania town after a teenage girl’s brutal murder. The 13-episode first season launched on April 19 to mixed critical reception but a solid response from viewers, receiving more global views in its first weekend than Netflix’s other original series, House of Cards (which was also green-lighted for a second season).

Production on Season 2 will begin later this year.
