Netflix Greenlights ‘GLOW’ for Second Season

Netflix announced on Thursday that its comedy based on the 80s hit Women’s Wrestling promotion, GLOW, has been greenlit for a second season.

Set in 1985 Los Angeles, GLOW follows Ruth Wilder (Alison Brie), a struggling out-of-work actress as she auditions for, trains and eventually makes the first-ever women’s wrestling TV show. Inspired by the short-lived but beloved show from the 80s, GLOW is a Cinderella story with bodyslams.

Not much is known about the second season and what it will entail, however, it’s safe to say that the story will continue from the end of the first season where Liberty Belle was screwed out of the G.L.O.W championship.

GLOW is created by Liz Flahive (HomelandNurse Jackie) and Carly Mensch (Nurse JackieOrange Is The New BlackWeeds). Orange Is the New Black creator Jenji Kohan and Tara Herrmann are executive producers alongside Flahive and Mensch, who are serving as showrunners.
