Season 3 of GLOW is about to drop on Netflix.

Alison Brie. Lycra outfits. Outrageous storylines. What's not to love about Netflix's GLOW?

Luckily for fans, a brand new series is about to drop on Netflix. Here's the lowdown...

What is GLOW about?

Comedy drama GLOW starts off with struggling actress Ruth Wilder, who cheats with her best friend's husband .

She then finds herself trying out for a new role - with a difference.

Rather than being a part for a TV show or movie, Ruth realises she's trying out for a new female wrestling troupe.

To make matters worse, her ex-BFF (who is also an actress) rocks up to the auditions.

Over the course of the show, the two women - and the rest of the gang - develop a strong bond and realise wrestling can help them negotiate issues in their personal lives.

At the end of season 2, Ruth had just bagged herself a new boyfriend (despite having a connection to director Sam Sylvia), and things are looking up.

In the trailer for season 3, however, it seems as though Ruth is having doubts about her seemingly perfect set up.

As the girls head to Vegas to perform, only time will tell if Ruth sticks with her new beau or if she and Sam finally work things out.

Watch the trailer for season 3 below:
