GLOW Season 4 – GLOW is an American comedy-drama TV series. It was created by Liz Flahive and Carly Mensch for Netflix. The series shows around a fictionalization of the characters and gimmicks of the 1980s women’s professional wrestling circuit, Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling (or GLOW) founded by David McLane.
The first season has 10 episodes and was released on June 23, 2017. On August 10, 2017, the series was renewed for a second season of 10 episodes, which was released on June 29, 2018. Third season of the series was released on August 9, 2019. On September 20, 2019, the series was renewed for a fourth and last season. However, in October 2020, a decision was taken by Netflix.
What is the series about?
In Los Angeles in 1985, Ruth Wilder, a struggling actress, takes auditions along with many other women in a professional wrestling promotion called the Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling (GLOW). Traditionally minded in her approach to acting and highly idealistic, she clashes with GLOW’s director Sam Sylvia due to his unconventional work style. Ruth discovers that Sylvia has employed her former best friend, retired soap opera actress Debbie Eagan to star in the show. Ruth and Debbie had fallen out with one another after Ruth had an affair with Debbie’s husband, Mark, who Debbie then divorced. The tension between the two women promises either to make or break the developing show.
The series follows the personal and professional lives of the fictional show’s numerous members and crew as they go through the 1980s in Southern California and Southern Nevada.
Is GLOW Season 4 canceled?
The famous Netflix drama series has been canceled even after having been previously renewed for a fourth season. The filming for season 4 was already on-going, but the complications caused by COVID-19 led Netflix to take the decision at the last moment.
Season 4 would not be ready until 2022, nearly three years after season 3. The significant delay would have cost Netflix even more money, and executives were worried that the delay would lead to a decrease in viewership.
