'Glitch' Season 2 News: Filming Is Complete, But Fans Are Still Waiting On A Premiere Date Announcement

For fans of ABC TV's, Glitch, that are desperate to find out information about Season 2, news has been scant. However, filming for Season 2 has just been completed, which means, a premiere date could be announced soon.

Glitch is an Australian program that originally aired on their ABC network. The series was a new take on the currently popular zombie genre, with a twist: the undead were not actually dead and didn't actually crave human flesh. Instead, they rose from their graves and continued on with their lives like they had never died. These characters came from differing points in time and appeared unrelated to each other. Season 1 of Glitch ended with many unanswered questions in regard to these characters.
