Netflix subscribers only have until next month to watch hemlock grove on the streaming service.
The platform announced in its latest newsletter earlier this week that the horror series will leave the streamer on October 22. Launched in April 2013, hemlock grove was one of the first original series Netflix aired that year, with Card castle and Orange is the new black like the other two. While it’s bittersweet to see a Netflix Original being removed from the platform’s library, it’s actually quite normal. In fact, over 60 Netflix original shows and movies have already left the service for different reasons.
Why is Hemlock Grove leaving Netflix?
However hemlock grove is a Netflix Original, the underlying rights to the show actually belong to Gaumont International Television, with the streamer serving solely as the exclusive distributor of the program. Apparently, Netflix’s distribution deal with the studio will expire on October 22, which explains the series’ impending departure from the streaming service.
Where to watch Hemlock Grove
The three seasons of hemlock grove are still streaming on Netflix. But after leaving the streamer on October 22, it’s unclear where it will be available next.
For some reason, according to What’s on Netflix, most of the Netflix Originals that have left the series so far can’t find a new streaming home. But Gaumont International will likely try to find a new home for the show in the open market and Netflix can still bid on said rights if they want.
