GLOW renewed for a third season!


After successful first and second seasons, GLOW will be back for another helping next year on Netflix.

Fresh off of six Emmy nominations for the first season of GLOW, Netflix decided to renew the lady wrestler comedy series for a third season. The stars from the show, including Alison Brie and Betty Gilpin, got together to announce the renewal through a video.

GLOW is inspired by the 1980s female-counterpoint to WWF called the Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling. Brie stars as Ruth Wilder, a struggling actress with no wrestling experience. Gilpin stars as Ruth’s former best friend and soap actress, Debbie Eagan, who is a newly single mom and looking for a change-of-pace. Rounding out the leading roles is Marc Maron as Sam Sylvia, the director of the show,

The show wouldn’t be what it is if it wasn’t for the cast of hilarious female comedians – Sydelle Noel as Cherry Bang, Britney Young as Carmen Wade, Kate Nash as Rhonda Richardson, Kia Stevens as Tamme Dawson, and Jackie Tohn as Melanie Rosen.

Season 2 of GLOW brought in 1.33 million viewers when it premiered on June 29. And the comedy also has a 98% approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes.

In July, GLOW’s first season was nominated for six Primetime Emmy Awards including Outstanding Comedy Series and Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series for Gilpin. Not for nothing, but I called it in my review of her work during the GLOW Season 2 recap of Episode 4 (fourth paragraph down).

Season 2 left off with the gang taking their show on the road after their show (within a show) gets canceled.

Will they find success in Sin City? With Ruth and Debbie continue to heal from their damaged friendship? With Ruth and Sam FINALLY get together? I know I’m excited to see what happens to the gorgeous ladies next.
