"Hemlock Grove" has been renewed for a 10-episode third and final season, Netflix announced Tuesday (Sept. 2). Season 3 of Eli Roth's supernatural drama is scheduled to premiere sometime in 2015, according to Deadline.
“We are so grateful to the fans of 'Hemlock Grove' who have championed the series so intensely over two seasons,” Roth said in a statement. “We are looking forward to taking the last and final season into some dark and unexpected places, and to giving viewers the killer finale you’d come to expect from 'Hemlock Grove.'”
The series, based on the novel by Brian McGreevy, revolves around two young men, one a vampire and one a werewolf, who are wrongly accused of murder when bodies begin turning up in a small Pennsylvania town. It stars Famke Janssen, Bill Skarsgard, Landon Liboiron and Dougray Scott.
The drama had a strong debut in April 2013, drawing more viewers in its opening weekend than the critically acclaimed "House of Cards," and doing particularly well among younger audiences. The second season, which premiered this past July, saw the town of Hemlock Grove continue to come to grips with the shocking massacre incurred by one of its deadliest creatures. Charles H. (Chic) Eglee, who joined as showrunner in its sophomore season, will return to the show for Season 3.
This is the second original series renewal for the video-streaming service in the past week. Netflix renewed animated comedy "BoJack Horseman" for Season 2 late last month, TV Guide reports. The show follows a former 1990s sitcom star who has fallen on hard times and is caught in a downward spiral of alcoholism and self-destruction. The voice cast includes Will Arnett as the titular character, Aaron Paul, Amy Sedaris, Paul F. Tompkins and Alison Brie.
