Netflix has released a new full-length trailer for GLOW season 3. As the series enters its third season, the Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling are in for a major shake-up, as they've made it to the big time a fancy new residency in Las Vegas. However, as we can see in this first trailer, that doesn't mean it's going to solve everyone's problems. But it should make for a very entertaining setting for viewers.
The trailer kicks off with a look at the girls' new show at the Fan-Tan Hotel and Casino. It's clear they've all moved up in the world. There is lots of glitz and glamour, the sorts of things one tends to associate with Sin City. However, there are also issues behind the scenes with Ruth, Debbie and others. Despite whatever issues there may be, the show proves to be a success and there is pressure to keep the train on the tracks. We also get a look at Geena Davis' new character, who looks to be the one in control of what goes on at the Fan-Tan. She fits in rather perfectly with this group and looks to be a welcome addition to the cast.
Glow season 3 takes the action to the Vegas strip. The ladies have become headliners at the Fan-Tan. Unfortunately, the reality dawns on them rather quickly that Vegas is more of a grind than it is a city of dreams. Ruth's passion for the show is sidelined a bit, largely thanks to her increasingly messy personal life. Debbie, meanwhile, is making progress as a producer, yet continues to be riddled with guilt over the distance she has put between her and her son. As their residency wears on, the lines between performance and reality will get very blurry.
The cast includes Alison Brie (Ruth), Betty Gilpin (Debbie), Sydelle Noel (Cherry), Britney Young (Carmen), Kate Nash (Rhonda), Jackie Tohn (Melanie), Gayle Rankin (Sheila), Kia Stevens (Tamme), Kimmy Gatewood (Stacey), Rebekka Johnson (Dawn), Sunita Mani (Arthie), Marianna Palka (Reggie), Ellen Wong (Jenny), Shakira Barrera (Yolanda) and Marc Maron (Sam). Britt Baron (Justine), Chris Lowell (Sebastian), Bashir Salahuddin (Keith), Rich Sommer (Mark) and Victor Quinaz (Russell) also star. Liz Flahive and Carly Mensch serve as creators and producers of the series.
Netflix is investing more in premium content than any other studio in Hollywood right now. That has earned them nearly 150 million subscribers worldwide, but it's also come at a cost of billions of dollars. Disney+ and Apple+ are launching later this year, which will serve as potentially huge competition in the streaming game. So it will be interesting to see if those billions pay off in the long run. Netflix also hasn't had many shows last all that long, so it will be interesting to see if Glow gets a season 4 pickup or not. GLOW is back on Netflix on August 9th, 2019.
