Spoilers for season 2 of GLOW
Good news for fans of 1980s nostalgia and kick-ass ladies, Netflix has renewed its Emmy-nominated comedy/drama GLOW for a third season. The second season of the show, which debuted on the streaming service on June 29, ended with the fictional GLOW television show canceled and the girls heading to Las Vegas. The network made the renewal announcement on Monday, tweeting a quick teaser for what’s to come.

Cast members Marc Maron and Best Supporting Actress Emmy nominee Betty Gilpin shared the good news on their Twitter feeds as well.

Prior to the premiere of season two, show co-creator Liz Flahive told The Hollywood Reporter that she and her fellow executive producers, Carly Mensch and Jenji Kohan, have a long-term plan for the show. It seems like we’ve just begin to learn about the women of GLOW. She said:

“I hope we have the number of seasons we dream of having because I think that we can then equally explore all of the women. With season one, we had the structure of what we needed to accomplish. And I think that is the great freedom of season two and of future seasons; that we can move around more now that you know and love the characters and understand the story of the show and wrestling. We have these 15 amazing women and ideally by the end of the show, you will know them all in a deeper way.”

Carly added, “The more seasons we go on, the further we go from the original [GLOW], and that’s based on the fact that we created very different characters and now we follow our characters.” I for one, can’t wait to find out what happens to Debbie, Ruth and the rest of these awesome ladies (especially Shelia the She-Wolf, because she’s still my favorite).

Netflix has ordered ten episodes for the upcoming season, which will most likely debut next summer. I’m so happy for the cast and crew, and this news almost completely makes up for Netflix canceling The Joel McHale Show with Joel McHale this past weekend. Almost.

    Yes!! I just want Ruth and Sam to happen.

    • MariaTI says:

      I don’t like them together at all – something about the two of them together seemed icky to me. Maybe because she sort of looks like his daughter? I dunno, I kind of liked the cameraman guy.

      • manda says:

        yes! cameraman guy is cute and nice! I think Sam is really a jerk. Like, he’s nice sometimes, but that’s bullshit. Nice all the time. I’m old, I know that nice all the time is better than cool and complicated and not nice all the time

    • Jenns says:

      I think they make good friends. And I hope they stay that way.

    On to Vegas!

  3. NicoleinSavannah says:

    Yay! Thank you for making the day brighter! Baby we can make it if we’re heart to heart!!! We love you, Joel.

  4. Sayrah says:

    Awesome! Season 2 was great.

  5. BlueSky says:

    I’m still upset over the cancellation of The Joel McHale show….

  6. Jenns says:

    I love this show. I’m so glad it’s coming back.

    And remember, don’t kidnap. Kidnapping is wrong to do.

  7. Memurs says:

    The episode within an episode last season gave me life.

  8. Emily says:

    I have never watched a show that is so easy to binge watch, looking forward to the 3rd season!

  9. Case says:

    I adore this show. So glad it’s coming back. But seriously, they cancelled The Joel McHale Show? First The Soup gets cancelled and now this? Awful. I loved both shows so much.

  10. Esmom says:

    I only made it through part of Season One. It’s not that I disliked it, I just got distracted by other things, I guess. I feel like I have to go back to it, I need something uplifting to watch. Love the cast.

    • Harryg says:

      I really tried to like it! I like it enough, but not as much as I thought I would. It’s uneven.

    • AWT says:

      I watched the whole first season and just… didn’t care? I couldn’t muster the energy for Season 2.

  11. lucy2 says:

    Happy news! I love the show, especially Betty and her character, but everyone on it is great. I’m excited to see what they do next.
    I’m a little bummed about Joel’s show, but not surprised. They did an episode dump a few weeks ago and put them all out at once, and it just never had the same zing as the Soup.

  12. Faithmobile says:

    Finally some good news! Love the girls of glow but could someone please explain the appeal of wolf girl? Her wig drives me crazy!

    • Incredulous says:

      As an example of why Sheila is great, she described Cheers as “It’s a show about an invisible woman named Vera.”

      Also “Sir! Unhoof me!”

    My husband and I love GLOW! The cast is great and they have great chemistry. I’m excited for Season 3.
