Netflix announced this afternoon that GLOW has been renewed for Season 2. The good news was posted on the show's official Twitter account with a short 12-second video confirming the pickup.
The series premiered this June for a 10-episode run that received a good amount of critical praise for its fun, yet smart, storytelling.
Based around the 1980s phenomenon "Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling", GLOW stars Alison Brie as Ruth Wilder, an actress in Los Angeles who, in an attempt to keep her dream of stardom alive, takes a gig portraying a female wrestler on a TV show. This thrusts her into the world of wrestling stardom alongside a group of Hollywood misfits, lead by a washed-up B-movie director who joins them on their journey to fame.
The streaming service has ordered another 10 episodes for Season 2 of GLOW, which will return in 2018.
