Good news for fans of Netflix's original series Hemlock Grove: According to The Hollywood Reporter, the video-streaming site has opted to renew the Eli Roth-produced drama for a second season, and has even promoted veteran showrunner Charles "Chic" Eglee to executive produce.
The first season of the series premiered this past April on Netflix, with all thirteen episodes available to stream at once. Since there are no advertisers, actually viewing numbers are not available for ratings purposes, but according to Cindy Holland, the VP of original content at Netflix, the company is pleased with the series' performance: "In its first season, [Eli Roth, Brian McGreevy, Lee Shipman] and the team did an incredible job of introducing viewers to a unique world of memorable characters," she said of the show.
As for Eglee—before signing on to Hemlock Grove, he worked as an executive producer on The Shield, The Walking Dead and Dexter.
The series was developed by Lee Shipman and Brian McGreevy—who wrote the novel that the series is based on—and stars Famke Janssen, Bill Skarsgård, Landon Liboiron, Freya Tingley, and Dougray Scott.
