GLOW SEASON TWO UPDATE

By Mike Johnson on 2017-09-13 15:31:00

Filming will commence on the second season of Netflix series GLOW on 10/16 in California, PWInsider.com has confirmed.  The cast are scheduled to begin training and preparing for the season next week.  The second season, like the first, will be ten episodes.

Loosely based on 1980s female wrestling league The Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling, the first season of GLOW was a critical success, telling the talent of a fictional troupe put together to film a TV pilot, which airs as the first season ends.  The series is headed by Alison Brie playing Ruth Wilder, a down on her luck actress that sees the opportunity as her last chance at success and Marc Maron, who plays the world-weary director of the series, Sam Sylvia, who has to find himself as he attempts to lead these women to stardom.

Kia Stevens, best known as Awesome Kong in professional wrestling, had a tremendous turn as Tamee, stealing a number of scenes.  Chavo Guerrero Jr. oversaw the wrestling sequences for the series.  A number of other performers from professional wrestling, including Alex Riley, John Morrison, Tyrus, Christopher Daniels, Joey Ryan and Kazarian also appeared over the course of the first season.

Created by Liz Flahive (Homeland) and Carly Mensch (Orange is the New Black), GLOW was inspired by the 2012 documentary GLOW: The Story of the Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling, which looked at the original promotion, why it shuttered and where its stars ended up.
