Fans of Eli Roth’s ‘Hemlock Grove‘ should be happy to hear that a third season is in the pipeline but will immediately be saddened when finding out that this will be the finale for the series. While the show will be coming to an end, Netflix has at the very least given it a full season to wrap up the open plot lines instead of just cutting it off. At this time showrunner Charles H. Eglee is set to return to wrap up the series with the ten-episode finale that shall premiere in 2015.
According to executive producer Eli Roth, “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.’”
Showrunner Eglee chimed in that “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.”
Netflix Vice President of Original Programming, Cindy Holland said “We, along with the fans, are looking forward to visiting Hemlock Grove one last time, and we know that Chic, Eli and the team will provide a riveting and mind bending conclusion to complete the series.”
Finally CEO, of Gaumont International Television, Katie O’Connell added, “The fan support of Hemlock Grove has been amazing and we are thrilled Netflix recognizes this and is rewarding the fans with a third and final season. We look forward to delivering a thrilling, suspenseful and bold narrative for this final chapter. Working closely with Netflix has and continues to be an invaluable collaboration for Gaumont International Television.”
While I’m sure most fans of the series aren’t happy that it is coming to an end, at least Netflix knows a season in advance to give the showrunner a way to cap off the series instead of what used to happen to genre shows on say, Fox. Certain shows such as ‘Firefly‘ and ‘The Tick‘ come to mind.
Are you looking forward to the final season of ‘Hemlock Grove’? Wish we they had more stories they could share with us or do you think that the show has run its course?
