‘GLOW’ Has Been Renewed for Season 3 at Netflix
It’s no secret that we’re obsessed with GLOW. Fortunately for us — and the millions of other fans of the ’80s-set wrestling dramedy — Netflix has renewed the show for a third season.
The streaming service made the announcement on Twitter, posting a compilation of clips of the characters saying “three” in the context of the show. The video also teased a bit of a spoiler to anyone who’s not caught up on the action: “Did you think we’d GLOW to Vegas without you? Let’s do this. #GLOWS3″

The series, which recently earned two 2018 Emmy nominations, for Best Comedy Series and Best Supporting Actress (for Betty Gilpin, AKA Debbie “Liberty Belle” Eagan), also stars Alison Brie as Ruth “Zoya the Destroya” Wilder, Sydelle Noel as Cherry “Junkchain”/”Black Magic” Bang, Britney Young as Carmen “Machu Picchu” Wade, Marc Maron as Sam Sylvia, Britt Baron as Justine “Scab” Biagi, Kate Nash as Rhonda “Britannica” Richardson, Gayle Rankin as Sheila the She-Wolf, Kia Stevens as Tamme “The Welfare Queen” Dawson, and Jackie Tohn as Melanie Rosen.
Series co-creator Liz Flahive spoke with Variety in July about why the show is so popular, saying, “It’s a story of people working together and a story of how hard it is to make something. … I think there’s something also about seeing 14 women in a frame together that is special. It’s not something you see in every show. Maybe people were hungrier for that in this current climate.”
Gilpin, meanwhile, talked with TVLine about her Emmy nomination at the beginning of August, admitting, “I’m so scared. It’s very exciting. I don’t know. It was never in my dream wheelhouse. So I feel like I don’t have any context for reaction about it.”
A premiere date for GLOW season 3 has not yet been announced.
