‘GLOW’ Goes ‘Flashdance’ in First Season 2 Tease
Jonah Hill and Emma Stone aren’t the only maniacs Netflix is putting on display today. The gorgeous ladies of GLOW are psyching themselves up for Season 2 with a little Flashdance, now that Netflix has booked a June premiere.
Per the flashy tease, GLOW Season 2 will officially hit the streaming service on Friday, June 29. There’s no actual footage to be gleamed in the above promo, but re-introducing all the major characters to the tune of Flashdance and Michael Sembello’s “Maniac” is a solid runner-up. Season 2 of the Alison Brie-Betty Gilpin women’s wrestling dramedy also promises even bigger hair in the first synopsis:
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 (Alison Brie) and Debbie (Betty Gilpin) settle into the day-to-day of making a season of TV together, they confront lingering issues at the heart of their friendship. Sam (Marc Maron) 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.
Joining the cast this year are Shakira Barrera as Mexican-American wrestler “Yo-Yo,” Dear White People star Wyatt Nash as new cameraman Phil, The Sandlot star Patrick Renna as a GLOW superfan named “Cupcake,” and The Sopranos alum Annabella Sciorra.
We’ll likely see a full trailer in May or June, so stay tuned and watch the first GLOW season on Netflix.
