Hemlock Grove is finally back. After a long, nearly year and a half wait since last season, the horror thriller series returned on Friday, October 23 with its third season – just in time for Halloween. Don’t worry, if you haven’t sat down to binge watch the whole thing, we won’t spoil it for you, but we will give you an idea of what to expect.
The show is one of Netflix’s first original series, and is based on Brian McGreevy’s novel of the same name. Hemlock Grove centers on bizarre events and murders in a small Pennsylvania town that happens to be populated with all sorts of strange monsters and odd residents.
Sadly for many horror fans, this season will be the last for Hemlock Grove, at least on Netflix – in an interview with Variety, executive producer Eli Roth admitted the series might find a new home somewhere else, if the situation is right.
Eli also claimed that the third and final season “included stuff that made his jaw drop,” as the publication writes. He explained, “It goes in weird directions that had even me shocked. What’s fun about the show is how off-the-wall nuts and bizarre it is. It’s really fun and twisted and terrific.”
While he refused to reveal specific details before the 10 episodes were scheduled to drop on Netflix, Roth did add, “knowing that was our last season gave us a chance to kill off a lot of characters.”
If you already thought the show was over-the-top, you may want to walk away because this season Eli and his team are said to be going even more extreme with, not just a bang, but a blood splattered, full on explosion.
Netflix has promised that “crazy doesn’t even begin to describe” the show’s farewell season. Producer and show runner Charles “Chic” Eglee said in a statement, “We really got to pull out all the stops. It’s no-holds-barred. We did it all.”
While there’s little doubt about all the blood and guts to come, it is certain that there will be a definitive ending so fans aren’t left in the dark.
“We’re going to wrap up the story, and it’s going to be messy – not in terms of story, but in terms of gory,” Eli promised.
