It’s only been a few months since season two of GLOW dropped onto Netflix, but now it’s been confirmed that the Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling will be back, with the show being renewed for a third season. Based on a fictionalised version of the 1980s women’s wrestling circuit, for the past two seasons its followed ex-best pals Ruth (Alison Brie) and Debbie (Betty Gilpin), as well as the rest of their wrestling crew (the Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling, or GLOW), in their attempt to create a television show.
With another season confirmed, here’s everything we know so far:

Who’s going to be returning for the third season?
The full cast list hasn’t been confirmed; but several of the actors have tweeted their excitement about returning for the third season. Betty Gilpin who plays Debbie has tweeted her excitement, seemingly self-confirming her return to the show.
We can also expect that most of the main cast will return, so including Alison Brie as Ruth, Britney Young as Carmen and Marc Maron as Sam.
When will GLOW season 3 be made available to stream on Netflix?
This is currently unconfirmed, with the promotional video just saying it’s “coming soon”; but with both seasons one and two dropping at the end of June, we could potentially expect the next season to drop in June 2019.
Any idea of how many episodes there will be?
Not yet, but both seasons one and two had 10 episodes, so it seems likely the third season will carry on in this fashion.
Any trailers yet?
Not yet. Watch this space – we’ll keep you posted.
Has filming started yet?
With the series only just having been confirmed, work on season three is yet to begin.
So, what’s going to happen?
At the end of season two, we saw Ruth and Debbie boarding a bus with the rest of their GLOW colleagues, as the gang headed to Las Vegas for their new live show in the showbiz city. The caption on the video that Netflix have shared on Twitter also mentions Vegas, so this is bound to be the location of the third season.
However, the move to Vegas isn’t all good news, with one of the show’s creators Carly Mensch telling Digital Spy: “We didn’t think Vegas was a purely optimistic place. It’s a place that, at least for us, makes our hair go up on our arms as in, ‘Oh no, what’s going to happen there?’…it’s a place that makes us deeply, deeply uncomfortable and that was exciting for us to take the story, and the women, there to see what happens.”
