Netflix announced today that GLOW has been renewed for Season 3. The good news, which was posted on the show's official Twitter account, comes two months after the release of its second season.

Like Season 1, the comedy's sophomore run was again met with critical praise for its smart, but campy, storytelling and its strong ensemble cast. The show is also up for a variety of awards at this year's Emmys, including a nomination for Outstanding Comedy Series.

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 3 of GLOW, which will likely return in the summer of 2019.
