Hemlock Grove might not have the cache of Netflix's other original offerings, but it does have one thing in spades: absurdity.
When the supernatural drama returns for Season 2 this Friday, Peter (Landon Liboiron) and Roman (Bill Skarsgard) are still on the outs while they deal with their personal demons (literally!). As it turns out, Peter's decision to turn on the wrong moon has more repercussions that anyone imagined.
Though summer television isn't as bleak as it once was, we could all use some extra options between network seasons to fulfill our television fix. And since your DVR will be drying up soon, it's time to head to Netflix for some respite from the search for something to watch...
Eli Roth's supernatural thriller Hemlock Grove returns to Netflix for Season 2 on July 11, the company announced Monday.
Based on the novel by Brian McGreevy, the series stars Famke Jannsen, Bill Skarsgard, Landon Liboiron and Dougray Scott as residents of a dilapidated Pennsylvania steel town where murder and other strange happenings occur. Season 2 continues with the town coming to grips with the shocking massacre incurred by one of its deadliest creatures.
It's been one month since Orange is the New Black premiered on Netflix and if you haven't finished yet, you're making a mistake. And don't even get me started on those of you who haven't begun watching.
Unlike Netflix's previous original series, which were self-indulgent (House of Cards), uneven (Arrested Development) and downright bizarre (Hemlock Grove), Orange has inspired a passionate following precisely because it's nothing like its streaming predecessors — or like anything else on TV, for that matter. The summer lull between Game of Thrones and Breaking Bad is such an especially dark place for television that a comedy-drama set in a women's prison immediately became more than just a welcome change of pace; it became an obsession. And Orange is more than worthy of the attention.
Netflix has renewed its new summer series Orange Is the New Black before it even premieres, Deadline.com reports.
