Netflix has handed out a second season to its 1980s wrestling dramedy Glow.

The show follows the lives of the titular "Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling" and is inspired by the real-life sports show that briefly aired on USA television during the 1980s.

The show dramatised the story of David McLane's campy "Gorgeous Ladies Of Wrestling" promotion from the 1980's, and was created by Kenji Kohan, who also produced the popular Orange Is The New Black series for Netflix.

Netflix made the announcement though a rather terse press release, stating only that the series will be renewed for a ten-episode second season. The show's official Twitter handle posted the news shortly after with a video, as you can see below. 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). 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. And at the wheel is Sam Sylvia (Marc Maron), a washed-up, B-movie director who now must lead this group of women on the journey to wrestling stardom.
