Find out more about who’s starring in the new season of Glow on Netflix.

Ruth ‘Zoya the Destroya’ Wilder (Alison Brie)

Lead character Ruth is an out-of-work actress who takes her craft super-seriously, and applies that same dedication to her wrestling alter ego.

She’s not exactly popular with the rest of the team, especially former best mate Debbie, whose husband she had an affair with in season one.

Alison Brie is known for playing Trudy in Mad Men, Annie in Community, and for voicing a number of characters in animated sitcom BoJack Horseman.

Debbie ‘Liberty Belle’ Eagan (Betty Gilpin)

Ruth’s nemesis Debbie used to be a soap star, which Ruth considered to be selling out, despite her success.

But a baby and a marriage split later, Debbie has found her best chance of work is playing a wrestling ring heroine acting out her real-life rivalry with Ruth.

Betty Gilpin has starred in TV series Masters of Sex, Nurse Jackie, and Elementary.

Sam Sylvia (Marc Maron)

The mastermind behind the Glow TV show is coach Sam, a grumpy director with a chequered history in the industry.

He clashes often with Ruth, but knows that she and Debbie are key to his success.

Marc Maron is known for his self-titled comedy show Maron.

Rhonda ‘Britannica’ Richardson (Kate Nash)

The troupe’s British star is Rhonda, whose romance with Sam was discovered halfway through season one although she later broke up with him.

Viewers will recognise Kate Nash, the singer who has had hits with Foundations and Pumpkin Soup.

Cherry ‘Junkchain’ Bang (Sydelle Noel)

Cherry is Sam’s right-hand woman. She is in charge of training and is left to run the Glow ship every time Sam isn’t around.

However, her previous relationship with the boss does not sit well with some of the other ladies.

Sydelle Noel has starred in Black Panther and Arrow.

Carmen ‘Machu Picchu’ Wade (Britney Young)

The potential star of the ladies’ show is Carmen, who comes from a long line of wrestlers.

Her father and brothers have been less than impressed by the idea of her fighting in the ring, but can she prove her family wrong?

Britney Young’s previous TV appearances include Crazy Ex-Girlfriend and Those Who Can’t.

Sandy Devereaux St. Clair (Geena Davis)

Chris Lowell plays show producer Sebastian 'Bash' Howard, and Rich Sommer is Debbie’s estranged husband Mark Eagan.

A new actor joining the show for season 3 is Breeda Wool (Mr Mercedes, UnREAL). 

She will play a character called Denise, another former showgirl who’s desperate to stretch out her career on the stage and provide for her young daughter.
