Geena Davis

How is Netflix doubling down on the success of the first two seasons of GLOW? By casting no less than Geena Davis in a starring role for season three. 

Reasons to love GLOW, Netflix’s riotously good romp through the world of Eighties glam wrestling?

It’s created, written and directed by a team of women. It stars mostly women, and a diverse group of them at that. It contains plenty of smart, nuanced meditations on the relationships women have with their bodies and with strength. 

Reasons to love GLOW season three: all of the above. And Geena Davis.

The Oscar-winning actor is joining the cast of Netflix’s GLOW as – wait for it – a retired showgirl turned director at Las Vegas’s Fan-Tan Hotel & Casino. She’s got the big hair, she’s got the long nails and she’s got the leopard print looks. She’s our favourite character already. 

Davis will appear in half of the third season and her character’s name is so impossibly perfect we want to repeat it over and over again. Sandy Devereaux St Clair. Sandy Deveraux St Clair! 

Not much else is known about Sandy, except that she will serve as a new entertainment director for the Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling as they try to tackle the bright lights and big city of Las Vegas.

The plot of the third season, per Netflix, will follow Ruth (Alison Brie) as she muddles through her messy personal life while trying to balance out her love of wrestling, while Debbie (Betty Gilpin) moves into a producer role, separating her from her son.

“As their residency [in Vegas] 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,” Netflix’s synopsis reads.

Bring on season three, which will stream on Netflix from 9 August.
