Glitch season 2 came to Netflix in late November 2017 it’s been a long wait for a season 3 announcement. Rejoice though as season 3 of Glitch has been announced. Let’s take a look at whether the show has been cancelled, renewed and most importantly when it’ll be on Netflix.

Now in case you weren’t aware, Glitch isn’t quite a full Netflix Original. Netflix was a co-producer on the show plus the international distributor for Glitch. They co-produced with Australian network, ABC to produce both the first and second season. That means any decision about Glitch is a joint one and something to bear in mind later in the article.

The show isn’t the first supernatural drama to hit Netflix with another co-production, Between being very similar to Glitch. The show is set in a small town in Australia where during the middle of the night, seven people rise from the dead as if they were never dead. It’s important to stress it’s not a zombie show but is still very much worth your time.

Season 3 Renewal Status

Official Renewal Status: Renewed (Last updated: 08/19/2018)

The show has finally been renewed after almost a years wait. The announcement came over the shows social channels and Netflix themselves are yet to formally announced the third season.

One of the key questions we had before the renewal was whether the show had enough life in it to continue though? One of the key questions, as explained by the co-creator is that each season is asking a specific question. Season 1 asked the question of ‘Who’, season 2 answered the question of ‘how’ and that likely means that season 3 would answer the final question of ‘why’. That there alone suggests that the showrunners have enough material for a third season.

When will season 3 of Glitch be on Netflix?

Netflix would get the series after it airs in Australia. Typically a month after and given how it’s a traditional channel releasing, you can bet they’ll want to be going for a fall release as that’s when it can garner the most live viewers and most importantly, most ad revenue. The announcement trailer for season 3 was for 2019 but given the fact we’ve had to wait a lot longer than usual for a renewal, we’re not sure whether it’ll be available in early 2019 or later in the year.
