Last September we announced that Netflix had renewed their comedy series “GLOW” had been renewed for a fourth and final season however this decision has now been reversed. According to Variety the streaming company made the tough decision to cancel the show after production had already begun earlier in the year as Covid-19 has made it practically impossible to film many of the scenes that involve close contact between the cast.
A spokesperson for Netflix said: “We’ve made the difficult decision not to do a fourth season of ‘GLOW’ due to COVID, which makes shooting this physically intimate show with its large ensemble cast especially challenging”.
COVID has killed actual humans. It’s a national tragedy and should be our focus. COVID also apparently took down our show. Netflix has decided not to finish filming the final season of ‘GLOW.’ We were handed the creative freedom to make a complicated comedy about women and tell their stories. And wrestle. And now that’s gone. There’s a lot of shitty things happening in the world that are much bigger than this right now. But it still sucks that we don’t get to see these 15 women in a frame together again. We’ll miss our cast of weirdo clowns and our heroic crew. It was the best job. Register to vote. And please vote.
