Australian drama, The Kettering Incident, arrived on Foxtel in 2016. The Aussie audience lapped it up even if they weren’t impressed with unsatisfying Season 1 finale. Here at The Snarking Dead, we jumped on the eerie new series and recapped the hell out of it.

So, will the show be returning for Season 2?

Officially, news is scant. Even though The Kettering Incident scored big at the AACTA Awards in Australia, Foxtel were hesitant to make a Season 2 announcement. They did, however say The Kettering Incident was not on their 2017 line up.This, of course, means nothing. For all we know, Season 2 might air in 2018, kind of like how HBO’s Westworld debuted in 2016 but Season 2 will not air until 2018 thanks to production delays.

However, a Facebook page dedicated to The Kettering Incident has announced Season 2 of the show is currently in production. When sharing an article about Season 1 of the show, they reported that the article was “great but [was] wrong about S2 being unlikely.”

If that isn’t an official announcement of Season 2 of The Kettering Incident, than nothing is.

But, hold up one minute. While the Facebook page looks like an official outlet for the TV series, it doesn’t actually have the official Facebook tick that verifies an account. So that means we are all back at the same place we started: hoping for an official announcement from Foxtel about Season 2 🙁

Even though there has been no official announcement about Season 2 of The Kettering Incident, the show’s co-creator, Vicki Madden, knows where Season 2 will head according to Mercury.

“I have developed a story outline for series two that Foxtel will take a look at … the intention [for Season 2] is always to heighten the tension and further the mystery of The Kettering Incident. For me the deeper and darker I can go, the better.”

The official synopsis for Season 1 of The Kettering Incident is below.

“Anna Macy left Kettering when she was just 14, shortly after her best friend, Gillian Baxter mysteriously disappeared. The two girls had been playing in the forbidden forests outside Kettering when they saw strange lights in the sky. Eight hours later, Anna was found alone, terrified and covered in blood.”

“15 years on, Anna returns to find the town struggling to survive. The forests have been marked for logging and the community is being torn apart by passionate but violent clashes between environmentalists and the local loggers.”

“Time might have passed but Anna’s reappearance causes a stir. Theories and rumors persist about what really happened to the girls that night – from Anna killing Gillian to alien abduction. Then another girl suddenly disappears. Has she run away or has something more sinister happened? If so, by whom or what, and why? Is it linked to Gillian’s disappearance all those years ago?”

 The Kettering Incident is currently airing on Foxtel in Australia, Amazon Prime in the U.S. and Sky Atlantic in the United Kingdom, Ireland and Europe.

  1. Season 2 in not officially confirmed by the network but the showrunner has started plotting the season. Foxtel has confirmed Season 2 is not in the 2017 lineup, so 2018 will be the earliest we’ll see S2.

  2. I imagine they will do nothing…that show has sooooo many things to tie up…just getting it to make sense would take about 8 more episodes.

  3. We need season 2? the ending to season 1 was not an ending but the beginning of the next season. ?Please tell me it will be this year,? I will be very upset and angry with Foxtel if they don’t make the next season ?
