GLOW's Fourth Season Canceled By Netflix Due To COVID-19

Netflix's GLOW series has been canceled due to COVID-19.

Deadline reported that the show, which was in the midst of filming its fourth and final season before the pandemic forced production to shut down, has been canceled. GLOW series creators Liz Flahive and Carly Mensch wrote a statement to Deadline lamenting the end of the show due to a pandemic.

“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 sh*tty 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," Flahive and Mensch said.

A Netflix spokesperson confirmed the news to Deadline, talking about how difficult a decision it was to not do a fourth season.

“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. We are so grateful to creators Liz Flahive and Carly Mensch, Jenji Kohan and all the writers, cast and crew for sharing this story about the incredible women of GLOW with us and the world," the spokesperson said.

IMPACT Wrestling's Taya posted a tweet, noting she'd been cast in the show prior to the cancelation.

The show's third season was released on Netflix in August 2019 and the streaming service revealed last year that the show had been renewed for a fourth and final season, but now that is no longer happening.
