The wrestling women of GLOW have reason for some celebratory moves.

Netflix Thursday announced a 10-episode, second-season renewal of the comedy, which stars Alison Brie (Community, Mad Men) as a member of a team of female wrestlers.

Brie plays Ruth, a stage-trained actress struggling to make it in Hollywood. Betty Gilpin plays Debbie, Ruth’s friend and fellow wrestler, in the show, which is set in Los Angeles in 1985.

It was a busy day at the streaming service as Netflix also announced Dec. 8 as the Season 2 premiere date for its acclaimed drama, The Crown.
