Netflix's adaptation might be able to fare as well, given that Netflix announced today that they will renew their GLOW series for a second season.

The announcement was made on the show's official Twitter account, with a brief message reading: "Here we #GLOW again..." That means more headlocks, dropkicks, and professional tension fueled by the personal drama between its leading stars, Ruth "Zoya the Destroya" Wilder (Alison Brie) and Debbie "Liberty Belle" Eagan (Betty Gilpin). The series 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.

GLOW was created by Liz Flahive (Homeland, Nurse Jackie) and Carly Mensch (Nurse Jackie, Orange Is The New Black), who act as showrunners, and is based on the real-life GLOW series. GLOW, or Gorgeous Ladies Of Wrestling, was inspired by a female wrestling league and accompanying TV show of the same name from the late '80s. Although the promotion was a cult hit, it couldn't evolve into a larger franchise, like Vince McMahon's juggernaut WWE. "For now, GLOW is just a solid concept for what's to come".
