GLOW's impact on professional wrestling is easy to see even today; the league was the first to place female wrestlers squarely in the spotlight and elevated ringside antics to new heights.

On Twitter, the official page for GLOW posted a teaser showing a hot pink "2", an unambiguous sign that the breakout freshman series will return for its sophomore season. Brie stars as Ruth Wilder, a struggling actress who auditions for GLOW as a last-ditch attempt to break into the industry.

The first season stars Alison Brie, Betty Gilpin, and Marc Maron in a fictionalized representation of the real-life all-women wrestling TV show from the "80s, Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling".

The show dramatised the story of David McLane's campy "Gorgeous Ladies Of Wrestling" promotion from the 1980's, and was created by Kenji Kohan, who also produced the popular Orange Is The New Black series for Netflix.

Like Orange Is the New Black, GLOW, inspired by the short-lived but beloved show from the '80s, has been a critical and pop culture hit.

Netflix has some glowing news. GLOW Season 2 shouldn't be a surprise.

Netflix made the announcement though a rather terse press release, stating only that the series will be renewed for a ten-episode second season.
