Well, I’m counting down the days until Season 2 of the Netflix exclusive ‘Hemlock Grove’ and Netflix has released a behind-the-scenes featurette about the season. Just as a warning for the squeamish: the trailer contains leech consumption, spraying blood, self-mutilation, and human experimentation. Take a look below!
Tell me, are you excited as well?
Chic Eglee (‘The Walking Dead’, ‘Dexter’) is acting as the showrunner/executive producer. The show will return to Netflix on July 11th with 10 episodes and stars Famke Janssen (“X-Men”), Bill Skarsgård (“Simon & The Oaks”), Landon Liboiron (“Terra Nova”), Madeline Brewer (“Orange is the New Black”), Madeleine Martin (“Californication”), Joel de la Fuente (“Law & Order: SVU”), Tiio Horn (“18 to Life”), and Dougray Scott (“Mission Impossible II”).
“Hemlock Grove” is a supernatural thriller which explores the strange happenings in a small Pennsylvania town. The show focuses on the unlikely friendship between the founding family’s young heir, Roman Godfrey (Skarsgård), and gypsy newcomer and outsider, Peter Rumancek (Liboiron). Each holds a monstrous secret that has been unleashed. Season two continues with the town coming to grips with the shocking massacre incurred by one of its deadliest creatures. Roman and Peter are now faced with new responsibilities and the realities that come with adulthood. Roman’s relationship with his mother (Janssen) is all but dead as he struggles with his unwanted Upir birthright and the disappearance of his sister, Shelley (Martin). Peter moves in with Destiny (Horn) and is forced to get a job after his mother is sent away. Meanwhile, in search of a new life, newcomer Miranda Cates (Brewer) embarks on Hemlock Grove with an unknowingly profound effect on Peter and Roman. And Norman (Scott), still reeling from the loss of his family, must face the harsh truths that are uncovered about those he still loves.
