‘WOW – Women of Wrestling’ Renewed for Season 2 by AXS TV

AXS TV has renewed “WOW – Women of Wrestling” for Season 2. The next run gets three times as many episodes — 24 — than Season 1.

The all-female professional wrestling league — and the only one with a weekly TV show — is owned by David McLane and Los Angeles Lakers owner Jeanie Buss.

“WOW” is McLane’s follow-up to the original “GLOW,” which has been adapted into a scripted dramedy on Netflix.

“‘WOW’ is proud to partner with AXS TV to bring this incredible promotion to viewers across the country,” Buss said in a statement Wednesday. “It is an honor to be able to continue this organization’s long tradition of showcasing the absolute best in all-female wrestling. The women of WOW appeal to a wide and diverse audience because of their strength, competitive spirit, and impressive athleticism, and the tremendous viewer response we’ve received is proof of that. This season was just the beginning, and we are all excited to build on our initial success with the delivery of new episodes airing in fall.”

“We listened to the fans as to what they wanted to see in women’s wrestling and are extremely pleased with the overwhelming response we’ve received from the viewers, it has been truly incredible,” McLane added. “Our Superheroes are authentic and real, and that comes across in each episode. People are captivated by their unique personalities, and they truly get invested in their stories — we are so happy they love tuning in to cheer on their favorite wrestlers. We look forward to providing our viewers with even more insights into the back stories of these amazing athletes and their epic battles with WOW’s future episodes on AXS TV.”

The “WOW” Season 1 finale airs Friday, March 8 at 9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. PT on AXS TV. It will include the first tag-team match of the season, as well as a title match between reigning champ Tessa Blanchard and the “Monster of Madness” Jessicka Havok.

In addition to sharing the renewal news, on a Wednesday conference call with media, McLane said he is opening the WOW Training Center in Long Beach, California. It will be the first all-women’s wrestling school in the United States.

Blanchard and fellow WOW “Superhero” — which is the term “Women of Wrestling” uses to brand its competitors — Selina Majors will be trainers.

“I am happy to join Selina Majors in providing women with a fully comprehensive training program designed specifically for them,” Blanchard said. “I was trained by men, and while that worked for me, I know a more supportive community for women wanting to join our profession will increase the participation.”
