Hemlock Grove, which premiered on Netflix in 2008 and was one of the company’s earliest original productions, may shortly be removed from the streaming service. The programme will be withdrawn from the extensive entertainment archive maintained by Netflix in the month of October. GamesRadar+ has contacted Netflix in an attempt to obtain a comment.
The show is a murder mystery that takes place in Pennsylvania and centres on the fictitious town of Hemlock Grove, which shares its name with the programme. A great deal of mystery and the unexplainable exist here. Penelope Mitchell, Landon Liboiron, and Bill Skarsgard are the actors featured, while Eli Roth is the executive producer. The television show is adapted from the novel written by Brian McGreevy that bears the same name. On April 19, 2013, the premiere of the first season took place, and on October 23, 2015, the premiere of the third and final season took place.
In 2013, Hemlock Grove was the first original show to be exclusively streamed online and to receive an Emmy nomination. The show received nominations for Outstanding Original Main Title Theme Music and Outstanding Special Visual Effects. In addition, Hemlock Grove was the first original show to receive an Emmy nomination.
On October 22, access to all three seasons will be terminated, although the cause for the withdrawal has not been disclosed at this time. Of course, this isn’t the first time an original has been taken off the streaming service. Some of Netflix’s Marvel programmes, like Daredevil and Jessica Jones, are now available to view on Disney Plus.
Batgirl, a DC movie that was supposed to be an HBO Max original, was scrapped even though it had already been filmed, with reports pointing to financial reasons as well as a strategy shift for the company. HBO Max has recently made headlines with the removal of multiple originals from the service, along with the surprising cancellation of Batgirl.
Even though Hemlock Grove will soon no longer be available on Netflix, there is still a lot to watch on the streaming service. If you want some ideas, check out our compilation of the top series now available on Netflix.
