Also returning for the final season are Alison Brie as Ruth Wilder aka Zoya the Destroya; Betty Gilpin as Debbie Egan aka Liberty Belle; and Marc Maron as Sam Sylvia.
The popular drama’s earned 15 Emmy nominations over its first three seasons, winning three. GLOW‘s also picked up seven Screen Actors Guild Award nominations (winning once), two Golden Globe nominations, five Critics’ Choice Award nominations, and three Writers Guild Award nominations.
GLOW Description, Courtesy of Netflix:
“Inspired by the short-lived but beloved show from the 80s, GLOW tells the fictional story of Ruth Wilder (Brie), an out-of-work, struggling actress in 1980s Los Angeles who finds one last chance for stardom when she’s thrust into the glitter and spandex world of women’s wrestling.
In addition to working with 12 Hollywood misfits, Ruth also has to compete with Debbie Eagan (Gilpin) a former soap actress who left the business to have a baby, only to be sucked back into work when her picture-perfect life is not what it seems. And at the wheel is Sam Sylvia (Maron), a washed-up, B-movie director who now must lead this group of women on the journey to wrestling stardom.”
A Look Back at Season 3:
“Season 3 follows the ladies of GLOW as they take the Vegas strip by storm. Now headliners at the Fan-Tan Hotel and Casino, the women quickly realize Sin City is much more grind than glitter. Ever the team cheerleader, Ruth’s passion for the show begins to take a backseat to her growingly complicated personal life.
Debbie is making headway as a producer, but continues to be consumed with guilt over the distance between her and her son. As their residency wears on, the lines blur between performance and reality, and the cast find themselves struggling with their own identities both in and outside of the ring.”
