Inspired by the real story of the 1980's female wrestling league, the series - set in Los Angeles and showcasing big hair and body slams - will be the fictionalized story of an out of work actress who finds one last attempt to live her dreams in the form of a weekly series about female wrestlers.
It is being reported that Netflix has cancelled GLOW after three seasons, reversing its original decision to renew the acclaimed comedy for a fourth and final season that was supposed to air sometime this year.
The sad news arrives over 14 months after the half-hour series aired its Season 3 finale - which will now serve as its series ender. Over the course of its run, the show garnered critical praise for its smart, but campy, storytelling and its strong ensemble cast.
Today's cancellation is the latest in a growing trend of networks walking back renewals months after handing them out due to changing circumstances - most of which have been attributed to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. GLOW was a few weeks into filming Season 4 when production was shutdown in March.
