The girls are back in town.

Season 2 of Netflix’s ladies wrestling comedy “GLOW” returns on June 29, the streaming service announced Wednesday.

In the second season’s first promo video, Alison Brie, Betty Gilpin and the other Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling “Flashdance” as they prepare for a performance in the locker room by lip-syncing to Michael Sembello’s 1980s hit “Maniac.”

Here’s the famed “Flashdance” sequence:

Season 2 will follow the ladies as they become local celebrities and are forced to deal with the ins and outs of fame. Ruth (Brie) and Debbie (Gilpin) must confront issues in their friendship as they make a season of TV together, and Sam (Marc Maron) now has a teenage daughter living with him as he needs to produce 20 episodes. As the logline says: “The wrestling is harder, the stakes are higher, and the hair is even bigger.”

In the promo video, Maron barges into the locker room in typical grumpy fashion.

“Hey, what’s going on here?” he asks. “We got a show to do. What is this? Come on, let’s go.”

The ladies shrug it off and finish out the song in epic ’80s style.

“GLOW” Season 1 received plenty of critical success. The half-hour comedy was nominated for four Screen Actors Guild Awards, and Alison Brie was nominated for a Golden Globe for her leading role.
