Glow cancelled by Netflix over coronavirus
It was proving exceptionally difficult to film wrestling scenes under the current safety guidelines.
Netflix has confirmed that its hit female wrestling comedy Glow will not return for a fourth and final season.
The cancellation comes due to the challenge of shooting such a physical, close contact show under social distancing measures, despite it being officially renewed for another season.
The show began production on this fourth season back in February and had already finished filming one of its planned 10 episodes before the coronavirus shutdown.
Set in the 1980s, Glow tells a fictionalized account of the real life Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling with an ensemble cast led by Ruth/Zoya the Destroyer (Alison Brie) and Debbie/Liberty Belle (Betty Gilpin).
Comedian Marc Maron also stars as director Sam Sylvia along with Sydelle Noel as Cherry/Black Magic, Britney Young as Carmen/Machu Picchu, singer Kate Nash as Rhonda/Britannica and Gayle Rankin as Sheila/She Wolf.
It was created by Liz Flahive and Carly Mensch with Orange is the New Black’s Jenji Kohan serving as executive producer.
Glow joins The Society and I’m Not Okay with This as the Netflix originals which have been cancelled because of the coronavirus.
You can stream all three seasons of Glow on Netflix now.
