Glow Season 4: Release Date & Confirmation On Netflix!

Glow Season 4

GLOW season three saw the Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling take their wrestling performance to Las Vegas.

GLOW’s third season continued to be humorous and touching, covering important subjects like employment injustice and racism.

Season four’s end set up a dramatic shift in the show’s dynamic, so fans were relieved when it was officially renewed. But there was some terrible news when Netflix confirmed it was the final season.

GLOW was officially discontinued in October 2020 due to a global pandemic. Liz Flahive and Carly Mensch put the news in context.

“COVID has killed people.” A national calamity that demands our attention. FLAHIVE and MANNER SAY COVID TOOK DOWN THEIR SH (via Deadline).

“Netflix has cancelled the final season of GLOW. We were given an artistic licence to tell a complex comedy about women. Wrestle. That’s gone now.”

Sad because the showrunners had plans for future seasons — even after the last season – but cancelled.

For season three, Carly Mensch told The Hollywood Reporter that “we have hundreds of ideas for what we want to happen in Vegas and beyond.”

Could Netflix change its mind about the show ending after season three to accommodate Alison Brie’s request?

“We’re so lucky to have this collection of folks doing this show,” says creator Liz Flahive. “With this orchestra, you want to keep playing.” It’s a joy to work with both in front and behind the camera. It’s a lot of fun, healthy, and gratifying. We’re incredibly lucky, and we all enjoy working and want to stay working.”

Sadly, the only hope for GLOW is that another network or streamer picks it up after things settle down.

Series three finished on a cliffhanger, so it’s easy to see why the showrunners are anxious about a fourth season.

« Whether or not we’re morons for not providing ourselves an ending this season remains to be seen (laughs) ». “We’ve done this every season, leaving it all on the field.” Other people won’t limit this show’s heart, cast, and storey. That’s not fair to what we’re attempting to do.”

For season four, co-showrunner Carly Mensch told Entertainment Weekly that “there is no going backwards.” “People are in different areas than when I last visited Los Angeles. It’s had a delightful Vegas effect. Now that I’ve done the arithmetic, none of our characters was there.

As a character-driven show, we care more about where Ruth, Debbie, Carmen, and the other women are in their lives at the end of season three.

“We’re delighted to explore new terrain for us, even if the landscape looks similar. Can you go home again, can you never go home?”

GLOW’s final battle is over, but we’ve seen tougher comebacks. Let’s look at the show’s future if it’s saved before the final bell.

How Does Glow Season 3 Season?

“God, I hope [season four] happens,” Kate Nash told Digital Spy after the third season aired.

“I hope so, I think there’s more to the storey.” I think it’s our greatest season yet, and I’d love to see these characters grow and their storylines unfold.

“They’re all intriguing with so much to say.” This season I think it opened up a lot more details.”

Now that we know season four is coming, let’s look back at how season three introduced several new storey lines.

Let’s start large. Debbie makes a bold step, going against her lover JJ’s wishes, to buy a TV network with Bash.

Debbie tells Ruth her plan when everyone returns for the holidays. In lieu of the GLOW characters, Bash made her president of the new network, and she’ll design a new wrestling show with fresh characters.

Debbie also wants Ruth to direct the “catapult into our future” show. “If you wanted to be an actor, you’d be one now,” Debbie informs Ruth.

“That’s your catapult, not mine,” Ruth tells Debbie after being rejected for a role in Sam’s next film, written by his daughter Justine.

That’s where we left them as Ruth boards her trip home, so will they be separated up for good in season four? Do you think Debbie and Ruth will be on the upcoming show?

Carmen quits GLOW, upset by the lack of innovation in Las Vegas, and joins her brother on his wrestling tour, while Sheila loses her She-Wolf disguise after meeting drag queen Bobby.

Season four may also see additional families, as Keith and Cherry look into adoption so Cherry can keep wrestling. While a threesome with a male gigolo makes Bash question his sexuality, Bash tells Rhonda he wants to start a family.

Could it be that GLOW’s core cast would have broken up for season four? It would be a big move given how little time they’ve spent apart in the three seasons.

Whatever happens, the show’s last season won’t be about the storey. Those will be…

“…and corpses,” Flahive says. “We don’t want the programme to feel like it’s ignoring our women’s bodies.” We want to keep the wrestling fresh while still moving the storey and characters along. We have some strong suspicions. Money and bodies are our main priorities!”

Other big problems arose after the cancellation. Two weeks after Netflix confirmed the show’s (temporary) end with season three, the show’s female stars of colour issued a statement (via Glamour).

Summer letter from Britney Young, Sydelle Noel, Sunita Mani, Ellen Wong, Kia Stevens, and Shakira Barrera to GLOW showrunners Liz Flahive and Carly Mensch; executive producer Jenji Kohan.

“GLOW was billed as a diverse ensemble, but it has never lived up to these goals,” the letter stated. In coping with this conflict, our characters’ tales are either consigned to the margins or leave us feeling like ticked boxes on a list… We are not here to bring down our white castmates or our show, but to uplift us all in a deeper, more substantial way.”

“It’s a tremendous error to write our stories without someone else representing us… We live in a world where actors are forced to perpetuate stereotypes in order to gain opportunities,” they stated. “We feel undervalued in our abilities and solely valued for our diversity.”

The Glow Production Crew Swiftly Fixed the Issues

“Our producers collaborated with us to design a plan for season four that would fix our problems,” Young stated. “This collaboration is unique in this industry, but putting change into action is something this world needs more of.”

If GLOW is reinstated, this is a critical issue that must be addressed.

When Can We Expect Glow Season 4?

Season three came out on August 9, 2019, instead of the normal late June release for seasons one and two.

We expected the fourth season to appear later in 2020, possibly around early August like season three.

Sure, all bets are off now. Filming was set to begin on February 18 and end on May 27. On February 19, Alison Brie shared a photo of a wrestling ring on Instagram.

We don’t know how much they had in the can before they had to stop manufacturing. If there is any video left, it will have to be reshot if the show is saved.

Kate Nash uploaded a video of wrestling practise on February 27th, which shows those early weeks were for rehearsals and training.

In an interview with Forbes in early March, Marc Maron revealed how far into the shoot the GLOW group was when the shutdown occurred.

“I’m clueless about season 4!” Maron remarked. Then I’ll shoot next week. I’m in eight of the ten episodes shot. According to one script I’ve read, this season will be unlike any other season before it.

Not knowing if it’ll be the last season is both sad and good for the writers because they can finally conclude it properly instead of half-ending it every season. “The show’s creators know this is it, so we can go out the way they want,” he continued.

With a cast full of celebrities, rescheduling will be difficult at best, and impossible at worst.

We’re sure the GLOW gang will body-slam mountains to make it work.

Glow Season 4 Cast: Who Returns?

If the programme is saved, Alison Brie and Betty Gilpin as Ruth and Debbie must be among the first to sign. Their friendship is important to the storey, despite Ruth’s decision at the end of season three.

Apart from Marc Maron (confirmed) as Sam, we may expect every one of the ensemble to return for a resurrected season four.

It’s unclear if Britney Young will reprise her role as Carmen, but we wouldn’t be surprised if season four follows her on the road as a professional wrestler.

Unless they both depart Las Vegas – if some of the GLOW group stays for the Vegas show – Geena Davis as Sandy Devereaux St Clair and Kevin Cahoon as Bobby Barnes are unlikely to return for season four.

When Will Glow Season 4 Arrive?

We thought we’d have to wait until June 2020 for the first trailer if Netflix had ordered season four in August as they did with season three. The third season trailer arrived on June 17, 2019.

But now that the show is cancelled, all bets are off.

We’ll keep you posted as news comes in, so keep us bookmarked for updates on GLOW’s future.
