We hope you’re hungry, because you can now sink your teeth into the very first poster for Season 2 of the dark supernatural thriller Hemlock Grove. You can also sink your hairy claws into it, but that’s not as widely-known an idiom outside the werewolf community.
On Monday, Netflix announced the premiere date for the second season of another prominent series, Eli Roth’s drama, Hemlock Grove. The service even threw in a brand new teaser, to boot.
It's hard to predict what Netflix will renew and what they'll pass on, considering they're pretty tight-lipped about their viewership. However, while they haven't been big in divulging the specific ratings information of the original series, we know they're keeping track of who's watching… and what else viewers are watching and how often and what interests overlap with others.
Netflix has managed to make itself a game-changer for television, not only in the way they offer full seasons and in some cases, full series, on demand for their subscribers, but also in their delve into original programming. They're making their own rules for how TV shows can be watched and enjoyed, and they're using interesting methods to collect data to determine what's popular and in demand.
Netflix’s newest entry into original programming is Hemlock Grove, a supernatural horror series that seems to be an odd mash-up of Twin Peaks and True Blood. In a small Pennsylvania town a teen girl is found brutally murdered, but it quickly becomes obvious that secret of her death is merely the tip of the iceberg when it comes to secrets.
Tomorrow, Netflix will debut their newest original series Hemlock Grove, delivering the full season to their subscribers. Following the release of the gritty new Red Band trailer for the series comes the above motion poster, which shows the familiar sight of the hand protruding from inside the jaws of a wolfish beast.
With the premiere of the first season of this dark and scary looking new series just days away, Netflix is clearly pulling out all the stops, showing us what Eli Roth's new drama has to offer in the way of content for mature audiences. The red band warning for this trailer lays out the offerings for "mature audiences" with a warning that specifies "mild fornication, fellatio, heavy cocaine use, lesbian necrophilia and violent hemorrhaging." Viewer discretion is most definitely advised.
Whoa. That was a pretty gnarly werewolf transformation. Not that we should expect anything less from Hostel director Eli Roth, brought on board to executive produce Hemlock Grove as well as helm the first episode. Based on Brian McGreevy's novel of the same name, the new horror series is set to hit Netflix in just over a week and with inspired clips like that, it's exciting to think what else they have in store to scare or shock audiences.
Hemlock Grove is Netflix’s next entry into the original series market, and judging from these four trailers released today it’s a very different animal from their hit House of Cards (we’re taking their word for it that the show is a hit, since no ratings were released).
Among the upcoming original offerings at Netflix, in addition to the return of Arrested Development, is Eli Roth's horror drama Hemlock Grove, which arrives next month. Following the creepy new trailer that released earlier this year, comes an equally creepy poster for the series. Check it out ahead!
2013 is a big year for Netflix, which is rolling out some highly anticipated original programming for its streaming video subscribers, among which are Arrested Development and David Fincher's House of Cards. That covers comedy and politics. For those looking for something a bit scarier, Netflix has Hemlock Grove, which is due out in April, according to the new trailer they've released. Check it out ahead.
Netflix has been busy planning their push into original programming with several high profile series set to air sometime next year including Eli Roth's first foray into television with Hemlock Grove. The subscription based 'network' has ordered a 13-episode first season of Roth's horror series, based on the book by Brian McGreevy, and two more just joined the already impressive cast featuring Dougray Scott and Famke Janssen.
From Eli Roth and Gaumont International TV, Hemlock Grove is a new horror series for Netflix based on the novel by Brian McGreevey. Adapted for the small screen by McGreevy and Lee Shipman with Roth set to direct, the 13 episode first season has been very busy over the last few weeks casting all the key characters and today the series nabbed another big name to co-anchor the series in MI:2 villain Dougray Scott.
As part of their programming shift, Netlfix has been developing several projects, one of which is an adaptation of the debut horror novel from Brian McGreevy called Hemlock Grove. The novel is being developed for TV by producer Eli Roth who's also attached to direct. And the book may have just dropped on Tuesday but today, courtesy of the science-fiction and fantasy website TOR, you can already get a taste of what's to come with a graphic novel prequel.
Famke Janssen and Bill Skarsgård, son of Stellan, are set to join the Hemlock Grove cast in two very different roles. Janssen will play Olivia, the head of the wealthy Godfrey household in the Pennsylvania town. Skarsgård will play her son, Roman, who eventually teams up with a local Gypsy boy in the attempt to solve the mystery on his own terms.
