The Zone Locks in Hemlock

Hemlock Grove is the latest series to be relaunched in HD on Sky’s newest channel, The Zone.

The first season of the Netflix commission screened in SD on The Box but, like another SD stablemate, Falling Skies, will switch to The Zone for the second when the sci-fi-/fantasy showcase joins Sky’s line-up in November (it will be the satcaster’s first HD channel for basic subscribers with an HD ticket that’s not a free-to-air network).

Today The Hollywood Reporter revealed the horror drama had been renewed for a third and final season.

“We are so grateful to the fans of Hemlock Grove who have championed the series so intensely over two seasons,” executive producer Eli Roth says.

“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.”

THR says the renewal signals the streaming network’s continued effort to maintain a presence across all genres.

“Next up for Netflix is the first of several Marvel partnerships, Daredevil, and the international tale Marco Polo in December.”

The Zone’s also announced it will follow SoHo’s weekend box set strategies, with two Joss Whedon series being among the first to feature: Firefly and both seasons of Dollhouse.

It also will resurrect Whedon’s Buffy the Vampire Slayer but in SD.

  1. I know Twin Peaks was on JONES but The Zone should screen it in HD :)

  2. Hopefully The Zone will screen the first season of Hemlock Grove, rather than starting at season two as many people including myself have not seen season one of this show.
