This article discusses the possibility of Glitch season 2 and the renewed or canceled status of Netflix’s K-drama. It may contain minor spoilers.
With netflix continues to ride a wave of growing popularity for its South Korean production thanks to squid game, the streamer continued to deliver original K-dramas in full with surprising frequency. And while these have varied from direct remakes (Money Heist: common economic space) to Korean versions of genre classics (A model family, Narco Saints), the truly original stories seem to have the most success. Enter the last: Problema sci-fi comedy about UFOs, aliens, and religious cults that’s proudly bizarre – sometimes to its own detriment.
But with ten episodes and a slew of original ideas, as well as stars of recognizable works such as Vincenzo and we are all deadthis latest outing combines a conspirator’s wet dream with an intriguing story of female friendship as Ji-hyo (Jeon Yeo-bin) teams up with his childhood friend and UFO-obsesser Heo Bo-ra (Nana) to find out why her usually reliable boyfriend has disappeared.
It’s almost a certainty that the series will be popular, but will it return in the future?
Status renewed or canceled – will there be a season 2 of Glitch?
Status: to be confirmed
As always, the series having only just been released, Netflix has not officially renewed or canceled it. They’ll probably wait to see the show’s impact before making that kind of decision. Money talks and viewership sells, after all, so it’ll be worth keeping an eye out if the show manages to make it onto a website like Netflix Top 10.
If we had to speculate, however, I’d say the chances of renewal are slim. While K-dramas are often popular on Netflix, they rarely get renewed. Problem seems to lend itself to a continuation better than most since the Problem end is ambiguous, but creatively it may still be best to keep it as a one-off affair and let the audience fill in the blanks for themselves.
When could Glitch season 2 be released on Netflix?
This is just speculation, of course, but assuming that Problem gets renewed, I wouldn’t expect such a heavy show to be filmed and finished too quickly. If the go-ahead was given before the end of the year and production took place in 2023, I would suspect an early to mid-2024 release at the very least – and that’s assuming the show gets renewed in the first place.
Glitch Season 2 Cast
Both Jeon Yeo-bin and Nana are essential to the narrative of the first season, and the show has also been very obviously marketed around them. I would expect both to return. All the others would be less important and subject to the developments of the first season. (We have recaps of each episode if you want to know what those developments are.)
Since the show has a strong theme on female friendship, you would expect this to continue in the relationship between the two leads.
Glitch Season 2 Synopsis
Of course, nothing is known about the second season yet, but here’s the gist of the first season in case you’re curious, thanks to the official synopsis from AsianWiki:
Hong Ji-Hyo’s (Jeon Yeo-Bin) boyfriend disappears with an unidentified light. Since then, Hong Ji-Hyo has been tracing her boyfriend’s whereabouts. With the help of Heo Bo-Ra (Nana) and other members of a UFO club, she tackles a mysterious secret.
