ABC announces return of Glitch as filming commences in Melbourne

Glitch will be returning to the ABC for a second season with news that filming has started in Melbourne.


The announcement:

“ABC is pleased to announce that filming is underway in Melbourne on the highly anticipated second season of the award-winning paranormal drama Glitch.

First screened in 2015, Glitch unraveled the mystery of seven people who had inexplicably returned from the dead.

The series garnered outstanding drama awards at the Logies and AACTAs and attracted a legion of fans who binged it on ABC iview.

Returning cast Patrick Brammall, Emma Booth, Genevieve O’Reilly, Rodger Corser, Sean Keenan, Hannah Monson, Ned Dennehy, Emily Barclay and Aaron McGrath, will be joined by Rob Collins (Cleverman, The Wrong Girl), Luke Arnold (Never Tear Us Apart: The Untold Story of INXS, Black Sails), and Swedish legend Pernilla August (Star Wars, Fanny & Alexander), adding to the rich world of this exceptional Australian drama.

With continuing twists and surprises, Glitch creators, Louise Fox and Tony Ayres aren’t giving too much away.

“We can’t wait for our audience to see where the story goes. We want to deliver on the promise of answers and keep the thrills and spills coming,” said series creator and show runner Louise Fox.

“We left our audience with so many questions at the end of the first series. Season 2 is our chance to answer some of these questions, whilst further exploring the confusing, messy and joyous miracle of being given a second chance at life,” said Tony Ayres, series creator, Matchbox Pictures.

ABC Head of Scripted Production Sally Riley said: “Glitch really broke the mould for ABC drama when audiences flocked to binge watch this fantastic paranormal mystery on iview. In 2017 we are going to shock, surprise and thrill fans, both returning and new, with what we have in store for Season 2.”

Glitch will film on location in Melbourne and regional Victoria until the end of March and will premiere on ABC and ABC iview later in the year.
