The Eli Roth-produced Netflix series Hemlock Grove has been confirmed for a third season.

However, THR reports that it will be the last, with the 10 episodes of Season Three the final visit to the strange, blood-soaked little town of Hemlock Grove.

Roth stated that “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.”

Charles “Chic” Eglee, who joined Season Two as showrunner, will return for the final season and said “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.”

While the critical reaction to Hemlock Grove has been the kind best described as “mauling”, the show has gained a huge and extremely dedicated fan base since it first aired last year, and it’s nice to see Netflix commit to giving the series a proper conclusion after the second season’s jaw-droppingly batshit cliffhanger. Bring on the final season madness.

Hemlock Grove Seasons 1-2 are available to stream on Netflix now. Keep up with the latest genre news with the new issue of SciFiNow.
