7. Hemlock Grove — $40 million/season
The horror thriller, which examines the strange happenings in the fictitious Pennsylvania town of Hemlock Grove, boasts a budget of around $4 million an episode. While that means the longer, 13-episode freshman season cost a little over $50 million per season, the next two seasons were shortened to 10 episodes, putting the show’s total cost at about $40 million a season. Unfortunately for Netflix, it seems Hemlock Grove wasn’t worth the cost. The show earned dismal reviews and ended up getting canceled after three seasons.
