GLOW first premiered on Netflix in 2017 and viewers were immediately drawn to its engaging plot and compelling characters. The series stars Alison Brie as Ruth Wilder, an actress struggling to find work in Los Angeles in 1985. Along with several other women, Ruth decides to audition for a wrestling program called the Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling, also known as GLOW.

As told by IMDb, the series also stars Betty Gilpin, Britt Baron, Sydelle Noel, Kate Nash, Britney Young, Gayle Rankin, Marc Maron, Kia Stevens, and Jackie Tohn. The ensemble cast includes Kimmy Gatewood, Sunita Mani, Rebekka Johnson, Ellen Wong, Chris Lowell, Marianna Palka, Shakira Barrera, and Bashir Salahuddin. GLOW chronicles the personal and professional struggles of the women working for the wrestling program in the 1980s in Southern California and Southern Nevada.

GLOW was renewed for a fourth season in August 2019. Sadly, however, it was just announced that Netflix has decided not to finish filming the fourth season of GLOW due to COVID-19 related complications. Fans and the cast of GLOW are equally disappointed by the streaming service’s decision.

Alison Brie was definitely saddened by the news that GLOW will not be returning. She broke silence on the news, posting a great photo featuring her fellow cast members to her Instagram page, expressing gratitude for being a part of the series.

Although I’ve never seen GLOW myself, I have a few friends who are huge fans of the series. I know that I would be so sad if a show I loved was canceled even though it had previously been renewed.
