Netflix Renews GLOW for Second Season


The online streaming platform announced on Thursday (August 10) that they have officially chose to renew GLOW for a second season.

Inspired by the short-lived, but beloved show from the '80s, GLOW tells the fictional story of Ruth Wilder (Alison Brie), an out-of-work, struggling actress in 1980s Los Angeles who finds one last chance for stardom. "Orange Is the New Black" creator Jenji Kohan and Tara Herrmann executive produce alongside Flahive and Mensch, who are serving as showrunners. "Season 2 is on the way".

Starring Alison Brie, Marc Maron, and Betty Gilpin, the first season of Glow saw a positive response from audiences, garnering a respectable 95% fresh score on Rotten Tomatoes.

Netflix didn't mention anything about when GLOW Season 2 will premiere, but we're hoping we get it right around the start of the summer in 2018. If that's not enough, there's also the fact that Netflix now has another female-centric show that's highly popular (Brie has previously called GLOW very "female forward") with viewers. 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.

All 10 episodes in the first season of Glow were released at the end of June, so the renewal order came pretty quickly.
