Netflix has announced that horror drama Hemlock Grove has been renewed for a 10-episode third and final season, which is set to premiere sometime next year.
“We, along with the fans, are looking forward to visiting Hemlock Grove one last time, and we know that Chic, Eli, and the team will provide a riveting and mind bending conclusion to complete the series” said Cindy Holland, Netflix Vice President of Original Programming.
Based on the Brian McGreery novel of the same name and adapted for television by the likes of Eli Roth, Hemlock Grove follows supernatural goings-on in a small town in Pennsylvania, with the second season, which premiered this past summer, focusing on a massacre, a disappearance, and the harsh truths that can become buried by small town hive mind. The series had the misfortune of premiering around the time of higher profile Netflix projects, including star-studded political thriller House of Cards and acclaimed prison drama Orange Is the New Black, and never generated much in the way of buzz outside its fan base.
Hemlock Grove stars Famke Janssen (Nip/Tuck), Bill Skarsgard (Simple Simon), and Landon Liboiron (Degrassi: The Next Generation). Season two introduced the likes of Madeline Brewer (Orange Is the New Black) and JC MacKenzie (The Departed), with Tiio Horn (Defiance) and Joel de la Fuente (Law & Order: SVU) being promoted to series regulars after recurring during season one.
