Deadline is reporting that Netflix has renewed wrestling comedy series GLOW for a third season.
Inspired by the short-lived show from the 80’s, GLOW is set during in Los Angeles where we follow struggling actress Ruth Wilder searching for a role, any role, that she can sink her teeth into. As she auditions for roles of secretaries, she still has little success until one day a casting director calls her for an unconventional project. She soon learns that the project is auditioning to compete in a professional wrestling promotion called Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling aka GLOW. The second season follows up on the women becoming local celebrities, confronting the good, the bad and the ugly realities of their newfound fame. As Ruth and Debbie settle into the day-to-day of making a season of television together, they confront lingering issues at the heart of their friendship. Sam now has a teenage daughter living with him and twenty episodes to churn out.
A renewal for a third season was always likely, as the second season was just as raved about by critics and viewers as season one was.
GLOW stars Alison Brie, Betty Gilpin, Sydelle Noel, Britney Young, Marc Maron, Jackie Tohn, Kate Nash, Britt Baron, Chris Lowell, Rich Sommer, Kimmy Gatewood, Rebekka Johnson, Sunita Mani, Kia Stevens, Gayle Rankin, Ellen Wong, Marianna Palka, Alex Rich, Shakira Barrera, Wyatt Nash, Annabella Sciorra and Patrick Renna.
