Hemlock GroveEli Roth‘s gothic horror series, has received the green light from Netflix to start production on a second season.  The campy but atmospheric and ultimately satisfying first season showcased the uneasy friendship between two attractive supernaturals (played by Bill Skarsgard and Landon Liboiron) from very different backgrounds in a small Pennsylvania town amidst a backdrop of gruesome murders, family secrets and some very curious onlookers.

The series is based on the Brian McGreevy novel of the same name, and while the author said in a Reddit AMA earlier this year that there will not be any more books in his series, the Netflix series obviously has no intention of slowing down (is this what Game of Thrones fans should expect if George R. R. Martin doesn’t hurry up with his next installments?)  Hit the jump for more about a new showrunner, and what Roth says viewers can expect in the upcoming season.

hemlock-grove-landon-liboiron-bill-skarsgardShowrunner Charles H. “Chic” Eglee will be onboard to run Hemlock‘s second season. Cindy Holland, Vice President of Original Content at Netflix, said of the change:

“In its first season, Eli, Brian, Lee and the team did an incredible job of introducing viewers to a unique world of memorable characters. Chic’s addition to the show, and his experience on such fan favorites as ‘The Shield,’ ‘The Walking Dead’ and ‘Dexter,’ will heighten the intensity of the mystery that grips Hemlock Grove.”

Eli Roth also gushed about the series’ success, and commented on its future:

The worldwide fan response to ‘Hemlock Grove’ was phenomenal. Netflix members loved the potent combination of sexy monsters, mystery, and the dark family soap opera that ended with a huge twist, leaving audiences worldwide totally shocked. Season One was just a warm up for what we have in store for season two.  Get ready to be scared in ways you never expected.”

Season Two is set to have ten episodes, and should go into production later this year, airing in 2014.
