The main trailer for season 2 of GLOW is finally here, and the Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling are in for some even bigger hurdles this season.
Last season of GLOW hoisted our favorite wrestlers into the realms of local stardom. While it’s always exciting to get a taste of celebrity, the women soon realize that there are many more complications that come with fame. The new trailer for season 2 gives us a taste of some of the challenges to come.
Season 2 of GLOW will up the stakes by not only adding in mounting personal drama for each of the women, but also bringing in the very real issues of growing fans (and creepy fans), threats of cancellation for GLOW, and the changing dynamic of more men working in the studio. Additionally, the show will also seem to deal with (or at least discuss) the more racist caricatures some of the women portray.
But of course, you can also expect those things that make GLOW fun to watch. Judging by the trailer, we can expect lots of ’80s goodness in the form of fashion, ALL the hairspray, classic ’80s tunes, and, of course, wrestling.
This show has been quite a surprise, off-beat hit for Netflix, but it’s managed to win audiences familiar with the wrestling world and those wholly new to it by creating engaging characters and presenting audiences with engaging stories. It looks like season 2 will be just as engaging, and we can’t wait to see what our faves are up to this season.
GLOW returns to Netflix on June 29, so be sure you’re all caught up and your queues are ready!
