All 13 episodes of Netflix’s newest series Hemlock Grove will be available for streaming on April 19th. While you have to wait until April 15th to get our review of the first three episodes, the horror series made an appearance at WonderCon this weekend, and we have the audio of several roundtable interviews with the cast and crew. Check it all out after the break.

Hemlock Grove, based on the the book of the same name, is about a small town in Pennsylvania that is rocked with a series of gruesome murders. As rumors mount, two of the suspects in her killing, Peter Rumancek, a 17-year-old Gypsy trailer trash kid rumored to be a werewolf, and Roman, the heir to the Godfrey estate, decide to find the killer themselves.

Please be warned that the following interviews will contain some spoilers for the first three episodes of the season.

You might know them better as Chief Galen Tyrol and Lt. Anastasia Dualla from SyFy’s hit series Battlestar Galactica, but Aaron Douglas and Kandyse McClure are working together once again in Hemlock Grove. Douglas plays the town sheriff who is investigating the murders, and McClure comes in for three episodes as an animal behaviorist who is helping the sheriff with the case.

Famke Janssen and Dougray Scott play two opposing members of the Godfrey family. Olivia Godfrey is the mysterious mother of Roman, and Norman Godfrey is the brother to Olivia’s dead husband. The two have a tumultuous relationship that gets revealed a bit in the first few episodes.

Horror legend Eli Roth serves as an executive producer for the show, as well as directing three episodes. Deran Sarafian is an executive producer/series director, and has directed six episodes.

Mark Verheiden, Brian McGreevy, and Lee Shipman serve as executive producers on the show. McGreevy also wrote the novel on which the series is based.

Bill Skarsgård is Roman Godfrey, heir to the Godfrey fortune. Penelope Mitchell plays his cousin Letha Godfrey, for whom he has a strange obsession over.

Landon Liboiron is Peter, the gypsy werewolf trying to help Roman solve the murders. Freya Tingley plays Christina Wendall, a fellow student who first spreads rumors of Peter being a werewolf.
