Netflix renews GLOW for season 2
The retro-wrestling comedy will return with 10 more episodes
The GLOW must go on. Netflix has ordered a second season of the scrappy retro-wrestling comedy starring Alison Brie, Betty Gilpin, and Marc Maron.
No release date has been set for season 2, which will consist of 10 episodes.
Premiering in late June to rather glowing reviews, GLOW takes place in 1985 and centers on a struggling, aspiring actress (Brie) who winds up scoring a spot on a women’s wrestling show that is overseen by a fallen-on-hard-times director (Maron).
The series — which was created by Nurse Jackie producers Liz Flahive and Carly Mensch, and executive-produced by Orange is the New Black creator Jenji Kohan and OITNB executive producer Tara Herrmann — is based on the ’80s female wrestling program GLOW (a.k.a. Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling).
Inspired by the real-life 'Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling' series from the 1980s, this Netflix dramedy revolves around a crew of Hollywood misfits turned female wrestlers in L.A. who take their show to Las Vegas in season 3.
