‘GLOW’ is an American comedy-drama web television series that airs on Netflix. The show first premiered on June 23, 2017 and has been created by Liz Flahive and Carly Mensch. It is based on the gimmicks of characters who were involved in the 1980s syndicated professional women’s wrestling circuit, called the Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling or GLOW, which was founded by David McLane.
Take every ’80s film and roll them into one, then inject the diverse casting and perspectives that all of those films were sorely missing, sprinkle on some amazing fashion and music, serve with some fearless subject matter (storylines covering miscarriage and abortion, misogyny, anxiety. racism and infidelity) and you get ‘GLOW’! Naturally, fans have taken to the series like a fish to water. Moreover, the critics have lauded the show too, praising its style of writing, its attention to detail, especially considering it is a period piece. They have also been quick to point out how the show adds a layer of drama expertly to the plot, without losing its self-effacing and delightful humor which borders on silliness. The show has had three successful seasons so far. Here’s everything we know about its next season.
