Rising from the dead can be jarring. (BBC3)

People can’t seem to get enough of the undead and with that said, BBC3’s In the Flesh has been renewed for a second season to begin filming later this year, reports Radio Times. The second season will consist of three new episodes.

Well, in this case, using the term “undead” is a bit of an overstatement because teenager Kieran Walker (Luke Newberry) is actually partially dead suffering from PDS (Partially Dead Syndrome).
