VIDEO: Geena Davis Makes the ‘GLOW’ Gals an Offer They Can’t Refuse in Season 3 Trailer
Marc Maron, Alison Brie, and Jackie Tohn star on new batch of episodes, available Aug. 9 on NetflixJune 18, 2019
The gorgeous ladies of wrestling are stepping back into the ring, but this time their show is headed to Sin City.
Netflix has released the Season 3 trailer of “GLOW,” its 1980s-set women’s wrestling dramedy starring Alison Brie, Betty Gilpin, Wrap Up Show guest Jackie Tohn, and past Stern Show guest Marc Maron, among others.
The clip begins where Season 2 left off with Sam Sylvia (Maron) and his roster of performers looking for fame, fortune, and work in Las Vegas. They’re attempting to produce a high-flying wrestling show with some help from Sandy Devereaux St. Clair (series newcomer Geena Davis), a “former showgirl turned entertainment director of the Fan-Tan Hotel and Casino,” according to descriptions.
“I would like to extend GLOW’s contract through the end of the year,” St. Clair tells the group at one point, but nothing’s ever that easy in Las Vegas. In addition to a barrage of opening night disasters—including Zoya the Destroya (Brie) getting stuck high up in the air—the ladies of GLOW must also wrestle with their own demons.
“I’m gonna get us kicked out of every casino here before we leave,” boasts the party-loving wrestler Melrose (Tohn) amid a montage of sex, drugs, and fire-breathing.
As Stern Show fans will remember, Jackie’s talents extend far beyond the ring. The actress and “American Idol” veteran can hit the high notes, too, as evidence by her collaboration with longtime Stern Show contributor Eli Braden on a masterful Robin Quivers parody song to the tune of Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper’s “Shallow.” Take a listen (below).
“GLOW” Season 3 debuts Friday, Aug. 9 on Netflix.
