ABC TV paranormal drama series Glitch to get a second season

When the first season of the ABC’s paranormal drama Glitch ended on a cliffhanger back in August, fans were left wondering if they’d get the opportunity to get all their burning questions resolved in the form of a second season. Today the ABC announced that they had green lit the series for a return, with production now in the planning phase.

The series, which was brought to us from the creators of The Slap, originally premiered in its entirety on iView (a Netflix-like approach that ABC has been taking with several of its shows this year) before being extending it in weekly doses to its free-to-air audience. Those who watched the show were left with many questions to answer.

Why these people and only these people returned from the dead and how did it come about? Series two promised to “go inside the gates of Noregard Pharmaceuticals and other mysterious places as our Glitch characters explore once again the extremes of what it means to be alive.”

Beyond this, Glitch co-creators Tony Ayres and Louise Fox aren’t revealing much about the new series, saying in today’s press release, “We’re all really excited to be returning to Yoorana and to be telling stories for the characters that we all love so much. We can’t wait to deliver on the promise of all those stories, keep all the thrills and spills coming and bring this drama to a satisfying conclusion.”

Managing Director of Matchbox Pictures Chris Oliver Taylor says “Matchbox Pictures is incredibly proud of Glitch, and we are thrilled ABC TV is pursuing a second series. We’ve had a huge response to Glitch from around the world and we can’t wait to showcase more of this amazing Australian drama to the international market.”

We’ll keep you posted on the latest on this production.
