NEWS OF THE WEEK: Alison Brie calls GLOW cancellation 'the great heartbreak of my career'

GLOW was a three-season dramedy series following a female wrestling team in 1985, loosely based on the true story of the Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling. Netflix cancelled a previously-ordered fourth and final season of the show in October 2020 after production had already begun, citing pandemic concerns. At the time, bosses at the streaming giant said in a statement to Deadline that physical distancing “makes shooting this physically intimate show with its large ensemble cast especially challenging”. Almost two years later, series star Alison told Decider that GLOW’s cancellation is “the great heartbreak of my career”.
