Remember the Emmy nominated Netflix original horror series, Hemlock Grove? Well, the show is back with a second season Friday, July 11 at 12:01 PM PT. I can barely believe it’s been a year since we first learned about the inhabitants of Hemlock Grove, PA. Part True Blood and part daytime soap opera, the Netflix original was pleasantly done and I enjoyed it thoroughly.
The series revolves around Roman Godfrey (Skarsgård), heir to a powerful local family, and a gypsy kid new to Hemlock Grove, Peter Rumancek (Liboiron). Each man share a deeply rooted secret that both fuels and hurts their unlikely friendship. Eli Roth marks his first move into television, adding executive producer to his resume. The show stars Bill Skarsgård, Landon Liboiron, Dougray Scott, Famke Janssen, Madeline Brewer, Madeleine Martin, Tiio Horn, and Joel de la Fuente.
“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 (Madeline 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.”
Enjoy your binge watching, kids.
