The behind the scenes “Step Into Your Power Pose” featurette from GLOW shows the level of wrestling has dramatically increased from season one to season two. The short video features interview clips with the cast discussing their wrestling moves and what fans of the critically acclaimed series can expect from the upcoming season.

The second season’s 10 half-hour episodes will premiere on Netflix on June 29, 2018. Liz Flahive and Carly Mensch are the showrunners and executive produce with Tara Hermann and Jenji Kohan.
The Season 2 Plot: Season two follows the women of GLOW as they become local celebrities, confronting the good, the bad, and the ugly realities of their newfound fame. As Ruth and Debbie settle into the day-to-day of making a season of TV together, they confront lingering issues at the heart of their friendship. Sam is still Sam, but now he has a teenage daughter living with him and twenty episodes to churn out. The wrestling is harder, the stakes are higher, and the hair is even bigger.
A Look Back at Season 1: 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 (Marc Maron), a washed-up, B-movie director who now must lead this group of women on the journey to wrestling stardom.
