Hemlock Grove is leaving Netflix: Where to watch it next

Netflix subscribers only have until next month to watch Hemlock Grove on the streaming service.

The platform announced in its most recent newsletter earlier this week that the horror series is leaving the streamer on October 22nd. Launched in April 2013, Hemlock Grove was one of the first original series that Netflix put out that year, with House of Cards and Orange Is the New Black as the two others. While it’s bittersweet to see a Netflix original be removed from the platform’s library, this, actually, is pretty normal. In fact, over 60 Netflix original shows and movies have already left the service for different reasons.

Why is Hemlock Grove leaving Netflix?

Though Hemlock Grove is a Netflix original, the underlying rights to the show is actually owned by Gaumont International Television, with the streamer only serving as the program’s exclusive distributor. Apparently, Netflix’s distribution deal with the studio will expire on October 22nd, which explains the impending departure of the series from the streaming service.

Where to watch Hemlock Grove

All three seasons of Hemlock Grove are still streaming on Netflix. But after it leaves the streamer on October 22nd, it’s not clear where it will be available next.

For some reason, according to What’s on Netflix, most Netflix originals that have left the series thus far don’t find any 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 the said rights if it wants to.
