Netflix Axes Plans For Final Season Of Glow Due To Covid-19 – And Fans Are Not Happy


Fans of the cult TV series Glow have been left devastated following the news that Netflix has cut its run short.

The wrestling-based comedy was originally supposed to return to the streaming giant for a fourth and final series, on which production began in February.

However, due to the coronavirus pandemic, filming was halted, with the creators confirming that it has now been scrapped completely.

“Covid has killed actual humans. It’s a national tragedy and should be our focus,” the show’s creators said in a statement to Deadline. “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.”

They ended their statement with a call for fans of Glow to register to vote.

Fans of the show have been voicing their disappointment on social media since the news broke:

A Netflix spokesperson explained the streaming service’s decision to cut the show short, saying: “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.”

Glow launched in 2017, and is based on a group of female wrestlers in the 1980s who dub themselves the Gorgeous Ladies Of Wrestling (hence the name of the series).

The show stars Alison Brie in the lead role of “Zoya The Destroya”, with Betty Gilpin, Sydelle Noel and British singer Kate Nash also among the cast.
