GLOW season 4 began production in February of this year before shutting down due to the coronavirus crisis. At the time, the show had wrapped filming on one episode and had started on an episode.
GLOW followed the fictionalized creation story of a real all-women professional wrestling enterprise called the Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling (GLOW). The show’s large ensemble cast was led by Allison Brie as Ruth “Zoya the Destroya” Wilder, Betty Gilpin as Debbie “Liberty Belle” Eagan, and Marc Maron as director Sam Sylvia. The rest of the show’s cast included Sydelle Noel, Brittany Young, Britt Baron, Kate Nash, Gayle Rankin, Kia Stevens, Jackie Tohn, and Chris Lowell.
The size of the cast proved to be an asset in telling diverse stories about a diverse group of women but unfortunately may have ended up contributing to the show’s early demise as it was too difficult for the show to continue its L.A.-based production.
GLOW joins The Society and I Am Not Okay With This as Netflix shows unable to continue due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The cancellation of Teenage Bounty Hunters does not appear to be COVID-related. Season 1 of the show reportedly performed well in the week after its Aug. 14 release, making this a somewhat curious decision. The show followed two high school-aged fraternal twins Sterling (Maddie Phillips) and Blair (Anjelica Bette Fellini) as they team with bounty hunter Bowser Jenkins (Kadeem Hardison) to start bringing in local criminals.
