Stephen: Netflix cancels Glow due to COVID-19
GLOW, Netflix’s series about the world of female wrestling, has been cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. It had initially been renewed for a fourth and final season back in September 2019, but Netflix reversed that decision due to the pandemic. “Shooting this physically intimate show with its large ensemble cast [is] especially challenging,” Netflix said in a statement.
Creators Liz Flahive and Carly Mensch added in their own statement, “We were handed the creative freedom to make a complicated comedy about women and tell their stories. And wrestle. And now that’s gone,” they wrote. “We’ll miss our cast of weirdo clowns and our heroic crew. It was the best job. Register to vote. And please vote.”
Star Alison Brie added her own take on Instagram, posting a pic from season one with her castmates.
