GLOW Will Go Another Round at Netflix

GLOW Will Go Another Round at Netflix”

Netflix announced Thursday that the show was renewed for a second season after the success of the first season, which debuted in June. Beyond that, the show really delves into the business of wrestling and the building of "face" (good) and "heel" (bad) characters and how much detail goes into creating a wrestling gimmick.

The series first premiered on Netflix this spring, starring Alison Brie as a struggling actress that can't catch a break until she auditions for the first-ever professional women's wrestling show.

In addition to Brie, the series stars Betty Gilpin, Marc Maron, Sydelle Noel, Britney Young, Kate Nash, and more, all of whom add up to make up one of the larger female ensembles on scripted television right now.

They paired the announcement with a short teaser video featuring a quick shot of a pair of glittery lips, followed by a neon "2", and the official series logo. GLOW is created by Liz Flahive (Homeland, Nurse Jackie) and Carly Mensch (Nurse Jackie, Orange Is The New Black, Weeds). From there, Ruth finds herself working with 12 ladies in a similar position, while simultaneously going head to head with her BFF Debbie (Betty Gilpin), and a washed up director named Sam (Marc Maron), who also happens to be her boss.

The second season of GLOW will span ten episodes, and continue the story of Ruth Wilder (Alison Brie) and a troupe of other performers who help launch an all-women wrestling TV show in 1985. Have you watched the documentary that inspired the show?
