The Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling are Back in the Season 2 Trailer for Netflix’s ‘GLOW’

Ready! Set! Let’s GLOW! Netflix’s Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling are back in a brand-new trailer for the upcoming highly-anticipated second season of GLOW.

GLOW stars Alison Brie as Ruth Wilder/Zoya the Destroyer, a struggling actress who takes a leap of faith on a new project called GLOW which turns out to be exactly where she belongs. Betty Gilpin plays Debbie Eagan/Liberty Bell, a former actress turned first-time mom who gets drawn back into her craft when she learns the dramatics behind the wrestling world and Marc Maron plays Sam Sylvia, the director pulling the whole production together.

In the season two trailer, we see a sneak peek at the ladies struggling with some tough and topical issues including sexism, racism, and possible cancellation! Check out the season two trailer below as well as the full synopsis.

In addition to Brie, Gilpin, and Maron, GLOW also stars Kate Nash, Gayle Rankin, Sydelle Noel, Britney Young, Britt Baron, Kia Stevens, Jackie Tohn, Ellen Wong, Sunita Mani, Chris Lowell, Marianna Palka, Kimmy Gatewood, Rebekka Johnson, Shakira Barrera, Bashir Salahuddin and Rich Sommer.

The second season will feature ten 30-minute episodes from showrunners Liz Flahive and Carly Mensch. The series is set to launch on Netflix on June 29, 2018.


[row]Season 2 follows the women of GLOW as they become 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 TV together, they confront lingering issues at the heart of their friendship. Sam is still Sam, but now he has a teenage daughter living with him and twenty episodes to churn out. The wrestling is harder, the stakes are higher, and the hair is even bigger.

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 when she’s thrust into the glitter and spandex world of women’s wrestling. In addition to working with 12 Hollywood misfits, Ruth also has to compete with Debbie Eagan (Betty Gilpin ) a former soap actress who left the business to have a baby, only to be sucked back into work when her picture perfect life is not what it seems. And at the wheel is Sam Sylvia (Marc Maron), a washed-up, B-movie director who now must lead this group of women on the journey to wrestling stardom.[/row]
