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 (48) | Top Critics (14)

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…

The series is more confident in diving into its characters' emotional journeys, rather than constantly feeling the pressure to razzle-dazzle the audience with antics in the wrestling ring.

Top Critic

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.

GLOW has still got just enough shine to hold our interest... but since the change of scene card has already been played just three seasons in, we're not sure if the fun and drama can be sustained for another run.

Aug 9, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

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…

The show is likeable as ever.

Aug 2, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

It's an enjoyable season, filled with deep character moments and moral messages for its 2019 audience, but the stranglehold of the Vegas environment is stifling. It keeps the season from truly being able to (pardon my pun) glow.

Aug 22, 2019 | Full Review…

Plenty of great characters to work with, so the appeal distributing screen time more evenly presents is evident, but there are just so many characters that in execution, not picking favorites leaves a lot of storylines feeling spread pretty thin.

Aug 19, 2019 | Full Review…

GLOW Season 3 delves more into character development than its predecessors, and we fall head over heels for these ladies.

Aug 19, 2019 | Rating: A- | Full Review…

Season 3 ditches the ring to dive deep into the lives of the women while acknowledging the struggles of the working mom and social issues.

Audience Reviews for GLOW: Season 3

    After six really good episodes to start season three, the show makes a sharp nosedive. What started out so strong, building from season one to an even stronger season two, quickly became a dumpster fire fueled by atrocious writing.

    Great season, best of the series so far!

    Really enjoyed the first two seasons of this show. The 2 leads (Alison Brie and Betty Gilpin) are terrific in their roles. Marc Maron & Chris Lowell are perfect supporting actors along with the rest of the cast being made up mostly of the wrestlers. This season however starts off on the wrong foot. So many characters are getting their focused storylines that they never really get a chance to develop enough for you to care. There is no overall plot, scenes just seem to happen. The first couple seasons had long arcs that were paid off. This season it feels as if arcs just aren't happening, none that get me to care at least. Zoya and Libery bell no longer feel like main characters, since every other character has their own focus and separate paths. I'd recommend this season only to those who enjoy just the characters. I'd be surprised to see this show get brought back for a season 4.

    Much more than just women wrestling. This show dives into multiple issues the characters are facing and had my attention from beginning to end. All the characters are relatable and goes through life changes that are realistic.

    I stopped watching after the 1st episode. I can tell this season has taken a terrible turn, become way too politically correct, and it was BORING! No interest anymore. Too bad, season 1 was great and 2 was ok!

    Big fan of the show overall, but this season was ROUGH. Peachy, boring at times, sappy. Yuck.

    I was wondering when it would happen. The show finally sold out to political correctness, when being politically incorrect was what gave the show so much of it's appeal in the first place. For example, Fortune Cookie (for some inexplicable reason) goes full-on SJW out of nowhere, as do other characters. The rest of the time it's gay this, gay that... give me a break. I don't need to be lectured to. The writers seem to have lost the fact that there's humor in stereotypes, which were an integral part of 80's wrestling. It was never meant to be taken seriously. Until now. Just a sad sign of the times. And btw, people did not use the term "hate crime" in the 80's. Just another example of go-woke, go-broke. This show has officially jumped the shark.

    I just finished watching Season 3 and a great season as usual. Great characterizations, a lot of humor mixed with a little bit of sadness here and there. Truly one of the best shows on Netflix, hope to see another or several more seasons of this.

    Love the push on new character development this season. Completely different structure to the previous seasons. No idea what's coming next! Pros and cons to this. The mentioning that the cast IS a bunch of straight girls diving into the drag world Doesn't change the fact that that is a thing. Cultural issues and development of the bash/aids crisis story lines were interesting but wish the season was longer so we could further flesh things out. It's cool that there's a character who's come through the overlooked Cambodian civil war, but let's expand that so the only Asian character has character outside of being Asian. Still love, and connected with the actors' work at so many moments 👌🏻❤️❤️

    Really terrbile first episode. Literally became a politcally correct soap opera. Marc maron lost my respect.
