Starring – Meanwhile, we can pretty much expect the entire cast, including Marc Maron as Sam (confirmed), Britt Baron as Justine, Chris Lowell as Bash, Kate Nash as Rhonda (confirmed), and Sydelle Noel as Cherry, to return for a revived season four.
The ensemble series told the story of a group of women and a couple of men who try their hardest to make it in the world by faking it in the ring in the 1980s show “The Beautiful Ladies of Wrestling.” Season 3 of GLOW premiered in August 2019 on Netflix and ended on a cliffhanger, with the women leaving their Las Vegas lifestyle behind and several characters parting ways.
GLOW’s third season confirmed its status as one of Netflix’s best series, with the comedy-drama continuing to be funny and affecting while discussing major issues like workplace discrimination and racism. GLOW’s season three finale set the stage for a complete shift in the show’s dynamics in season four, so viewers were delighted when the show was officially renewed. However, there was some disappointing news when Netflix announced that this will be the final season.
Is GLOW Back in 2021?
Netflix made the unexpected announcement that its Emmy-nominated sitcom “GLOW” will be canceled. The show had already been renewed for a fourth season and was in the process of filming when the COVID-19 pandemic halted production. “Due to COVID, which makes shooting this physically intimate show with its large ensemble cast especially daunting, we’ve made the difficult decision not to do the fourth season of GLOW,” a Netflix spokesperson said in a statement.
In February, production on “GLOW’s” fourth and final season resumed in Los Angeles, but only one episode was completed before L.A. County implemented stay-at-home orders, effectively shutting down production. Liz Flahive and Carly Mensch, co-creators of “GLOW,” explained why the show had to be canceled, saying, “COVID has destroyed real humans.” It’s a national tragedy that needs our attention. Our display was also apparently taken down by COVID. Netflix has decided not to complete shooting on GLOW’s final season.”
After season three ended on a cliffhanger, show producers Liz Flahive and Carly Mensch were (previously) ecstatic to have season four commissioned:
Flahive told The Hollywood Journalist, “We have a whole story to tell, and whether or not we’re fools for not giving ourselves an ending this season remains to be seen.”
“We’ve played it this way every season, where we’ve kind of left it all on the file.”
