If you watched the first season of Netflix’s ’80s set wrestling comedy, GLOW, you were definitely charmed by its neon glittered glee. If you didn’t watch GLOW yet, well, what the hell are you waiting for? Its 10-episode first season was so easily bingeable, and perfectly walked the line between comedy and drama, with lots of fun 1980s references and some authentic wrestling detail thrown in for good measure. GLOW Season 2 shouldn’t be a surprise.
Then again, Netflix likes to make people wait for their confirmations, and that’s what they did here. Nevertheless, GLOW Season 2 is definitely happening, and while there aren’t any details available, we expect the same incredible cast to return (seriously, could Betty Gilpin, Sydelle Noelle, Marc Maron, or Britney Young have been any more perfect?), and Netflix confirms that showrunners Liz Flahive and Carly Mensch will be back, along with executive producers Jenji Kohan and Tara Herrmann.
GLOW Season 2 News
GLOW Season 2 has finished production, which means it is definitely in line to match its first season’s June release date. Alison Brie confirmed as much on Instagram with this lovely image of the cast having their “last lunch” together.
Annabella Sciorra will join GLOW Season 2 for recurring role, reports Deadline. She is set to play Rosalie Biagi, described as the “mother to the youngest of the GLOW girls.”
Sciorra, a veteran actress, made early onscreen impacts as half of the interracial romance with Wesley Snipes in 1991’s Jungle Fever, a co-starring role in the 1992 horror/suspense film, The Hand That Rocks the Cradle, and is remembered for her powerful 2001-2004 run as Tony Soprano’s tragic mistress Gloria Trillo on HBO’s The Sopranos. Besides a wide array of films and TV guest spots, she’s since fielded TV runs on Mental, The L Word, Law & Order: Criminal Intent and Queens Supreme.
GLOW Season 2 Cast
Wyatt Nash joins GLOW Season 2 for a recurring role, reports Deadline. He will play Phil, a new cameraman for the late-1980s era GLOW wrestling show, whose hunky good looks has potential for disruptive drama (the unscripted kind,) within the women’s wrestling organization. That is the extent of the character details for now.
Nash is coming off run on another Netflix series, Dear White People, as well as Hallmark TV movies Like Cats & Dogs, The Bridge and The Bridge Part 2. He also fielded a brief run on Pretty Little Liars in 2013 and Hollywood Heights in 2012.
Annabella Sciorra will meanwhile join GLOW Season 2 for recurring role, reports Deadline. She is set to play Rosalie Biagi, described as the “mother to the youngest of the GLOW girls.” She is best known for her work on The Sopranos and in films like Jungle Fever and The Hand that Rocks the Cradle.
GLOW Season 2 Images
With production commencing in October, Alison Brie, who stars as actress-turned-wrestler Ruth “Zoya the Destroya” Wilder, started taking to Instagram to provide occasional updates on GLOW Season 2 in the form of a trailer photo, wearing her signature makeup and spiked hair. She is seen alongside her co-star and kayfabe frenemy in Betty Gilpin’s Debbie “Liberty Belle” Eagan, who’s already set to shoot, rocking big ‘80s hair and a luminescent onesie.
Of course, it’s not so much a revelation of details as it is a check-in with fans, letting them know that GLOW Season 2 is rolling cameras as we speak.
