The girls are back in town in the ‘GLOW’ season 2 trailer

The trailer for second season of GLOW, the Netflix hit comedy series is here and packed with suplexes, complexes and some of the best costumes on TV.

Inspired by the short-lived but beloved show from the 80s, GLOW tells the fictional story of Ruth Wilder (Golden Globe and Screen Actors Guild-nominee Alison 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 (Betty 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 (Screen Actors Guild nominee Marc Maron), a washed-up, B-movie director who now must lead this group of women on the journey to wrestling stardom.

Season 2 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.

GLOW also stars Sydelle Noel, Britney Young, Britt Baron, Kate Nash, Jackie Tohn, Gayle Rankin, Kia Stevens, Sunita Mani, Rebekka Johnson, Kimmy Gatewood, Ellen Wong, Marianna Palka, Chris Lowell, Shakira Barrera, Bashir Salahuddin, and Rich Sommer. It is executive produced by Liz Flahive, Carly Mensch, Tara Hermann, & Jenji Kohan.

The show received nominations from the Golden Globes, the Screen Actors Guild (a field-best four) and the Writers Guild of America and is expected to make a killing when Emmy nominations are announced on July 16th.

GLOW returns exclusively to Netflix for a 10-episode 2nd season on July 29th. Here is the official trailer.
