Netflix is asking fans to 'feel the Glow one last time'. GLOW has been renewed for season 4 on the streaming giant. Though the news is fairly bittersweet, as it was also announced that this will be the wrestling drama's final season. Netflix released a trailer to celebrate the exciting yet somewhat disappointing news.
The Gorgeous Ladies of Wresting are about to head off into the sunset, but they won't do so without one last hurrah. The Glow girls will go for one final round in the ring as Netflix has decided to end the show after just four seasons. Which makes a lot of since. The original syndicated run for Glow went from 1986 to 1990 and only lasted four seasons itself.
Some fans were worried that Netflix might cancel the show after Season 3, which would have been bad news for anyone wholly invested in the drama series. The last batch of episodes ended on a very somber cliffhanger. And now fans will have some closure, as the creators of the hit show will get to end the storyline on their own terms.
Season 3 ended with Debbie revealing to Ruth that Bash was in the midst of buying a TV network. In turn, Ruth admitted that she wanted nothing to do with her friend's new endeavor. In a hard to hear confession, Ruth told Debbie straight up, "I don't want what you want." These words came from Ruth as she boarded a plane to celebrate the holiday season.
While Netflix was gracious enough to inform fans that a fourth season is definitely happening, though it will be the last time we see these ladies, they weren't very forthcoming in terms of when we'll actually see these new episodes. But from the sounds of it, we'll see Glow bring everything to a close sometime in 2020.
Glow is headlined by Alison Brie, Betty Gilpin, and Marc Maron. In Los Angeles in 1985, Ruth Wilder, a struggling actress, auditions along with many other women in a fledgling professional wrestling promotion called the Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling (GLOW). She is at odds with GLOW's director Sam Sylvia due to her tendency to overact. About what to expect in Season 4, co-showrunner explained this to Entertainment Weekly.
"The fun of our show is there is no going backwards. People are in very different places than they were the last time they were in Los Angeles. There's been a really fun Vegas impact. None of our characters are actually where they were, now that I'm doing the math. For such a character-driven show, for us the setting or the location isn't as important to us as where people are in their lives - where Ruth is, where Debbie is, Carmen's headed for a pretty drastically different place, a lot of the women at the end of season 3 don't even know the potential opportunities ahead. As we're heading to some pretty new territory for us, even if maybe the landscape looks familiar, can you go home again, can you never go home again are all things that we're excited to dive into."
Betty Gilpin has been nominated for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a comedy series at this weekend's Emmys. The series already won Outstanding Stunt Coordination for a Comedy Series or Variety Program during last weekend's Creative Arts Emmys. This news came from See What's Next on Twitter.
