Tv Season Info

Season 3 follows the ladies of GLOW as they take the Vegas strip by storm. Now headliners at the Fan-Tan Hotel and Casino, the women quickly realize Sin City is much more grind than glitter. Ever the team cheerleader, Ruth's passion for the show begins to take a backseat to her growingly complicated personal life. Debbie is making headway as a producer, but continues to be consumed with guilt over the distance between her and her son. As their residency wears on, the lines blur between performance and reality, and the cast find themselves struggling with their own identities both in and outside of the ring.

Critic Reviews for GLOW Season 3

All Critics (64) | Top Critics (19)

It's still very entertaining, thanks to the perfect timing of its excellent cast, but it feels more disposable than ever.

Nov 27, 2019 | Full Review…

Season 3 is a wrestling match between cause and effect, countering every bit of happiness with a proportionally steep cost.

Aug 15, 2019 | Full Review…

By the end of the first episode, "GLOW" clears the high bar set for itself, and by the end of Season 3, having repeated the same courageous approach to its storytelling nonstop, it soars.

Top Critic

Season 3 is a patchwork of meaningful interludes, rote character check-ins, and errant plot threads that quickly unravel. Even Vegas itself is an afterthought.

Aug 8, 2019 | Full Review…

[GLOW] is a bright, bedazzled Trojan horse, exposing societal injustices one body slam at a time. And its third season is perhaps its best.

Nov 27, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

All in all, GLOW continues to shine (in gaudy '80s garb!).

Jul 31, 2020 | Full Review…

There's a kind of theater-dork fantasy camp thing going on with the GLOW writer's staff. Instead of pile-drivers, we must endure torch songs and glitter-bombs, which just don't make sense in the context of the show.

Jan 30, 2020 | Full Review…

Unlike the beaten and battered bodies of the lady wrestlers, GLOW is just getting better and better as time goes on.

Dec 16, 2019 | Full Review…

[GLOW] is so straightforward about women's complexity that it's thrilling.

Nov 27, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Without a doubt, "GLOW" is one of the most empowering and necessary pieces on television right now.

Nov 27, 2019 | Rating: 4/4 | Full Review…

It might have seemed like a fun idea to play with when they discussed it in the writers' room, but GLOW lost a lot of its charm once Vegas became a reality.

Nov 27, 2019 | Rating: 2.75/5 | Full Review…

[T]here's a lot to like about this season of GLOW, but the botches in storytelling keep me from saying I outright loved it.

Audience Reviews for GLOW: Season 3

  • Jul 19, 2020
    A very good show, I recommended it the storyline and everything is very originals and the characters refreshing.
  • Jun 04, 2020
    A pesar de que sea la temporada más deslucida que se ha ofrecido, aún mantiene su ritmo.
  • May 28, 2020
    It's somewhat different from the previous seasons. While the first 2 seasons focus on getting GLOW to work, this one is more focused on the individual struggles of the characters. I felt like the first episodes could use some improvements, they feel like unnecessary, however it gets better along the way.
  • May 23, 2020
    This season had it's moments - the gay issue for instance was a good angle, but mostly it felt like the writers didn't really know where to take the characters. Hopefully a fourth season will bring back some fun!
  • May 04, 2020
    Hilarious adventures, strong emotions, with new and old essences, are reflected in this Third Season, which is, like its predecessors, the most acclaimed and entertaining series on Netflix, thanks to this beautiful cast led by Alison Brie and Betty Gilpin who they will live new adventures and deliver performances to delight.
  • Apr 28, 2020
    Season 3 deviated from the womens wrestling much more than season 2. It still had solid storylines but it wasn't quite season 2 quality.
  • Apr 10, 2020
    So entertaining. I wish I had written this. Yes, it's one of those T.V. shows where you think, this idea was only a couple of thoughts away in my brain. I mean, it probably wasn't, but indulge me. The characters are great, the setting is great, the premise is unique. These are actresses that find a strange, but oddly entertaining way to continue to chase their dreams. Alison Brie and Betty Gilpin are unstoppable in this, can't take your eyes off of a single scene they are in. And the cast, the secondary characters, are well used and become well developed. The story continues to grow and so do the characters. It's unexpected, but it's realistic. This show continues to push itself. I don't want the series to end. I understand they are probably limited on ideas that continue to make this story and these stories great as well as keeping them all together, but I think these writers are capable of so much. The show just keeps building with blocks of great episodes.
  • Jan 21, 2020
    Just finished season 3 and it really has brought the entire series down. With the wrestling mostly disappearing from the show, there isn't much left. Some of the characters themselves maybe have promise outside of the ring but that development has been botched. Most of what happens feels either completely arbitrary and/or included just to come across as shocking. I honestly can only think of maybe 1 or 2 scenes that actually seemed genuine, the rest is astonishingly contrived. I don't know how they can salvage this for a 4th season but it's going to start off with a perfect first episode or I won't be wasting my time on it.
  • Jan 17, 2020
    While the show slows down just a bit, we get a lot more feeling this season. I don't think it's a bad thing, but the first two seasons definitely out shine this one. There is some great potential for the story though, as it was left. I'm still interested for sure.
  • Jan 02, 2020
    TLDR: As good as the previous seasons. Full Review: This season continues in the same vein as the previous two seasons. If you liked the last two, you will also like this one. However, since this is season 3 the focus of the show and the story progression has changes. Just like 'GLOW the show' the show itself has moved away from building to established. We are no longer introducing new characters or further building our characters. But rather we watch all our established characters change, evolve and even stay stagnant, as 'GLOW the show' goes on. Watch Style: Watched it in 4 days with other shows and movies in the mix.
