Fans of Hemlock Grove are no doubt rejoicing about the show’s eventual return to Netflix. The horror series is currently slated to hit the streaming service next year.
We know what you’re thinking, and, yes, Hemlock Grove has fans. Quite a few, apparently. However, we’re sure that most people are watching the show out of obligation more than anything else. The series is weirdly compelling despite its stable of unlikable characters and its ridiculous leaps in logic. This writer appreciates horror as much as the guy, but producer Eli Roth’s wonky endeavor seriously tests my dedication to the genre.
Since Season 2 ended with a pretty over-the-top cliffhanger, it’s good that Netflix is completely dedicated to wrapping up Hemlock Grove. Instead of leaving fans hanging — kind of like A&E did with The Glades — the streaming service will present the final installment of the series next year. Unfortunately, we don’t have an exact date just yet.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the third season of Hemlock Grove will consist of 10 terrifying episodes. This should be more than enough for producers to tie up all the insanity they put together last season. Here’s hoping the finale gets a much better reception than True Blood, which seemed to leave viewers more than a little dissatisfied.
Executive producer Eli Roth (Hostel, Cabin Fever) seems overwhelmingly excited about the upcoming third season. The press release was quick to label Roth as a master of the genre, but we’re not as willing to take the acclaim that far.
“We are so grateful to the fans of ‘Hemlock Grove’ who have championed the series so intensely over two seasons. 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.'”
Chic Eglee, who also executive produces the series, agreed with these sentiments.
“We are delighted that our fans have invited us back to explore the fiendish recesses of the human condition for another season. Knowing it will be our last gives us the opportunity to go out in a mushroom cloud of clever and soul-shattering mayhem. See you soon on the twisted streets of Hemlock Grove.”
The third and final season of Hemlock Grove is presently slated to hit Netflix streaming next year. Are you looking forward to the show’s grand finale? Have you enjoyed the series thus far? Let us know what you think in the comments.
