Glow season 2: release date, cast, news, and everything you need to know

The Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling are ready for season two.

GLOW season 2 is on its way. Here’s everything you need to know.

What’s the latest?

  • Glow will return for another 10 episodes, and the release date has been revealed.
  • Co-creators Liz Flahive and Carly Mensch are back.
  • Executive producers Tara Herrmann and Jenji Kohan (Orange Is The New Black) are also back on board.

What should we expect?

Executive producer Jenji Kohan told Deadline that in the first season “we really take our time”, so we can expect the plot to shift up a gear. Fans will be desperate to know whether rivals Ruth and Debbie can overcome their differences – a struggle that looks to take centre stage in season 2. Of course, there will be more wrestling and of a higher quality too. Flahive hinted that with the wrestling “we had to hold as much back as we actually showed” – so keep your eye out for some even more impressive pro moves.

When is Glow season 2 out?

June 29.

Yes there is. Check it out below:

How many episodes are there going to be?

Any new cast members?

No news yet.

Where did season 1 end?

Having bailed on the first episode of GLOW to move back in with Mark, Debbie challenged Ruth to a match, right after the latter wins the GLOW crown. Debbie conquered Ruth with a cross-body to become GLOW Champion. However, under Sam’s guidance, Tammé steals the crown to continue the storyline…

What’s going to happen in season 2?

The main focus looks to be on Ruth and Debbie’s rivalry after season 1’s finale. Betty Gilpin talked of Debbie being “the youngest, prettiest, most successful person in the room” but gave the realisation that “all of those things are starting to fade” as a potential angle for season 2 to follow.

A pilot for the GLOW show within the programme has just been shot – an accomplishment – but success further than that will come clear in the season to come.
