“GLOW” Renewed For Season 2

Exciting news Betty fans! GLOW has been renewed by Netflix for a second season.

‘GLOW’: Netflix Renews Women’s Wrestling Comedy For Season 2
Netflix has another keeper from Jenji Kohan on its hands. The Internet network has renewed new 1980s wrestling comedy GLOW for a 10-episode second season.

Kohan, who is behind one of Netflix’s signature series, Orange Is the New Black, executive produces GLOW, created/executive produced by Liz Flahive and Carly Mensch.

Like Orange Is the New Black, GLOW, inspired by the short-lived but beloved show from the ’80s, has been a critical and pop culture hit. Set in 1985 Los Angeles, it follows Ruth Wilder (Alison Brie), a struggling out-of-work actress as she auditions for, trains and eventually makes TV’s first women’s wrestling show.

Flahive and Mensch, who serve as showrunners, executive produce with Kohan and Tara Herrmann.

GLOW is the fourth Netflix comedy to debut in 2017 and get a second-season renewal. It joins One Day at a Time, Santa Clarita Diet and Dear White People. One 2017 Netflix comedy has been canceled, Girlboss.

How ‘GLOW’ Sets Up a Multi-Season Run

The Netflix series’ co-creators, along with stars Alison Brie and Betty Gilpin, look ahead for THR.

[Warning: This story contains spoilers from the entire first season of Netflix’s GLOW.]

The first season of GLOW was designed to feel like an origin story.

Netflix’s female wrestling series took its time introducing and forming its characters — both in and out of the ring — during its first nine episodes. The story built to a big finale in the tenth and final half-hour: creating the pilot episode for what would go on to become the first-ever female wrestling TV series.

‘G.L.O.W.’: Betty Gilpin To Co-Star In Netflix’s 1980s Wrestling Comedy Series

Nurse Jackie alumna Betty Gilpin is set to co-star opposite Alison Brie in G.L.O.W., Netflix’s 10-episode straight-to-series comedy executive produced by Orange Is The New Black creator Jenji Kohan.

Created by Liz Flahive and Carly Mensch , G.L.O.W. was inspired by the real story of the 1980s female wrestling league. Set in Los Angeles and showcasing big hair and body slams, the series tells the fictionalized story of Ruth (Brie), an out-of-work, struggling  actress who finds one last attempt to live her dreams when she’s thrust into the glitter and spandex world of women’s wrestling via a weekly series about female wrestlers. Gilpin will play Debbie Eagan, a former soap star who left show business to have a baby, only to be sucked back in when her picture-perfect life is not what it seems.

Kohan and Tara Herrmann executive produce, with Flahive and Mensch serving as showrunners.

The Reagan-era female wrestling league G.L.O.W. (Gorgeous Ladies Of Wrestling), a female answer to the male-dominated World Wrestling Federation, was showcased in the eponymous kitschy, Las Vegas-based syndicated TV series, which ran for four seasons, featuring sketches, songs and wrestling.

Gilpin recently did arcs on Showtime’s Masters Of Sex, CBS’ Elementary, PBS’ Mercy Street and the upcoming American Gods on Starz. She is repped by ICM Partners and David Williams Management.
