In addition to a slew of news about casting announcements and new show orders, Netflix has also announced the premiere dates for a new season of GLOW and the debut of the new original series THE INNOCENTS.
The ladies of wrestling will return to the ring in season 2 of GLOW on Friday, June 29. According to Netflix, “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 (Alison Brie) and Debbie (Betty Gilpin) settle into the day-to-day of making a season of TV together, they confront lingering issues at the heart of their friendship. Sam (Marc Maron) 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.”
The new Netflix series THE INNOCENTS will debut on August 24. The eight episode series follows teenagers Harry and June who run away from their repressive families to be together. On the run, “they’re derailed by an extraordinary discovery – June’s ability to shape-shift. As the star-crossed lovers struggle to control this strange new power, a mysterious professor reveals that June is not alone: there are more shifters out there like her, and he promises to cure June and reunite her with the mother who deserted her three years ago. But as their journey becomes increasingly fraught with danger, Harry and June’s love for each other is tested to breaking point and they’re faced with a choice: keep their innocent dream alive, or embrace that their lives have changed and risk everything.”
