Netflix original series Hemlock Grove heading to Blu-ray in the UK soon

The Eli Roth-produced "Hemlock Grove", which premiered on Netflix last spring, is heading to DVD and Blu-ray this April… in the U.K. only. Kaleidoscope Home Entertainment has announced that "Hemlock Grove The Complete Season One" will be released April 21st for Digital download, Digital rental and on DVD & Blu-ray.

The series, which centers around the brutal death of two teenage girls in the town of Hemlock Grove, has an all-star cast that includes Famke Janssen (X-Men, GoldenEye), Dougray Scott (Mission Impossible II), Lily Taylor (The Conjuring), Landon Liboiron (Terra Nova) and Aaron Douglas (Battlestar Galactica).

At the moment, there has been no announcement for a North American "Hemlock Grove" debut on disc, but it has to happen sooner or later. The second season premieres this summer.

The series is set in Hemlock Grove, Pennsylvania. The town is a mixture of extreme wealth and poverty, as the closing of the town's steel mill many years earlier caused many to lose their jobs. The town's main sources of employment are now the Hemlock Acres Hospital and Godfrey Institute for Biomedical Technologies. Run by the powerful Godfrey family, the Institute is rumored to conduct sinister experiments. The town's rumour mill turns even more twisted when two teenage girls are brutally murdered. Peter Rumancek (Liboiron), a 17-year-old gypsy, is suspected of the crimes by some of the townsfolk and is also rumored to be a werewolf. Along with the heir to the Godfrey estate, Roman, he sets out to solve the mystery and prove his innocence.
