Glitch Season 2 gets new trailer and November release date
Staff Reporter | On 19, Aug 2017
Glitch Season 2 will be released on Netflix UK in November – and has got itself a new trailer to boot.
Australia’s answer to The Returned, the paranormal drama follows a police officer in the small country town of Yoorana, who finds life turned upside down when six recently deceased residents return from the dead in perfect health.
The award-winning show was created by Tony Ayres (The Slap) and Louise Fox (Broadchurch) and stars Patrick Brammall as police officer James Hayes, with Genevieve O’Reilly co-starring as the local doctor, Elishia McKellar. It was released exclusively on Netflix outside of its home nation last year – and promptly won praise from us.
“The superb cast shine, as does the unique location – it’s great to see a drama set outside the USA, and the art department and cinematographer really make the most of the sun-scorched town and its dilapidated 19th century buildings,” we wrote in our review of Season 1.
“The six episodes cover a lot of ground, but Glitch doesn’t feel rushed or crowded. As many questions are raised as answered – why are they back, for starters? – and the season ends with a fantastic, tantalising twist. Thank the Lord, then, that Netflix has stepped in to co-produce Season 2. Once you’ve watched Season 1, you’ll crawl out of your own grave to find out what happens next.”
The good news is that you want have to wait much longer, with Deadline reporting that Glitch Season 2 will premiere on Netflix worldwide on 28th November. While that’s a bit of a delay compared to its Australian premiere of 14th September, it does mean that you can binge the whole thing at once, rather than wait for new episodes each week. It also means you have time to catch up on Season 1, still available on Netflix UK.
The show continues to see the Risen unravel the mystery behind their return, as they face a new, lethal threat. Joining Brammall in Season 2 are also Black Sails’ Luke Arnold, Emma Booth (The Boys Are Back) and Emily Barclay (Mr Pip).
