Streaming pioneer’s Goth thriller returns starring Famke Janssen and Bill Skarsgard
Netflix said the second season of original Goth series “Hemlock Grove” launches July 11 in all territories.
The Emmy-nominated series from horror director Eli Roth (Hostel, Cabin Fever) stars Famke Janssen and Bill Skarsgard, among others, and is based on Brian McGreevy’s same-titled novel.
The new season finds Roman’s (Skarsgard) relationship with his mother (Janssen) is all but dead as he struggles with his unwanted Upir birthright and the disappearance of his sister, Shelley (Madeleine Martin).
“Season two of ‘Hemlock Grove’ is a hot mix of passion, intrigue and supernatural thrills that come together in mysterious and riveting ways,” Ted Sarandos, chief content officer at Netflix, said in a statement. “The intensity and suspense take things to a whole new level and open doors to a brand new chapter that our members are going to love.”
The drama series is the first foray into television by Roth.
