Hike service

Hemlock Grove, the Netflix original series, leaves the service

One of Netflix’s first original series, hemlock grove, will leave the streaming service in October. Netflix’s latest newsletter announcing content changes for October contains a single mention that Hemlock Grove will be leaving Netflix on October 22. It’s a quiet, unceremonious attraction that’s quickly making major waves with Netflix viewers and industry analysts alike, as it marks something of a major shift in Netflix’s content strategy.

It has been noted that the current streaming wars between studios have taken a new turn in 2022. As companies continue to change (Warner Bros. Discovery) and strategies are completely overhauled (Disney), there have been case of some original series starting to get pulled. Netflix following this trend is somewhat surprising in that the company has made evergreen content blocks the main focus of its streaming library, all along. So to have a great original series like this pulled is…something.

hemlock grove is a horror thriller series created by Brian McGreevy (based on his novel) and produced by Inn Manager Eli Roth. House of Cards and Orange is the New Black were the others). The show also helped Netflix break into the prestige lane occupied by HBO; Hemlock Grove was nominated for two Primetime Emmy Awards after Season 1 (“Outstanding Original Main Title Theme Music”, “Outstanding Special Visual Effects”), with Netflix walking away with two Emmys for House of Cards. Additionally, the supernatural character world of Hemlock Grove garnered a cult following before hashtags and social media provided the biggest platform for shows generating viral buzz. Hemlock Grove ran for three seasons before ending in October 2015.

Hemlock Grove has also helped introduce a new generation of young actors and helped some established actors pave the way for streaming TV as a legitimate career path. The most notable breakout was Bill Skarsgård, whose unsettling screen persona on the show helped him land the role of Pennywise the Clown on Warner Bros. Computer movies. Skarsgård is now a horror icon in her own right, currently starring in the hit horror film Barbarian.
