The Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling are coming back for the American comedy web series, GLOW last Season. Netflix has confirmed that it is bringing back ‘Glow’ for one last time. This will be the fourth and final season for female wrestling dramedy series.
The series has till now received 15 total Emmy nominations and two Golden Globe nods. Now GLOW is coming to an end with the last season.
Glow creator Liz Flahive and Carly Mensch are back as the showrunners and writers. They will also be executive producers alongside Jenji Kohan, Tara Herrmann, and Mark Burley. The series star cast includes Alison Brie, Betty Gilpin, Marc Maron, Sydelle Noel, Kate Nash, Britney Young, Gayle Rankin, Kia Stevens, Sunita Mani, Jackie Tohn, Kimmy Gatewood, Britt Baron, Rebekka Johnson, Ellen Wong, Chris Lowell, Marianna Palka, Shakira Barrera, and Bashir Salahuddin.
Feel the GLOW one last time
Netflix revealed GLOW last season with a video which they posted on twitter. The video ended with a line saying, “Feel the GLOW one last time.” The tweet captioned, “#Glow has been renewed for a fourth and final season!”
The series is based on a beloved show from the 80s which tells the fictional story of Ruth Wilder (Alison Brie). She is a struggling actress in 1980s Los Angeles who finds one last chance for stardom when she’s thrust into the glitter and spandex world of women’s wrestling. She auditions along with many other women in a fledgling professional wrestling promotion called the Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling (GLOW).
She is working with 12 Hollywood misfits. Along with Ruth, there is Debbie Eagan (Betty Gilpin ), a former soap actress who left the business to have a baby, only to be sucked back into work when her picture-perfect life is not what it seems. The Glow season also shows Sam Sylvia (Marc Maron), a washed-up, B-movie director who now must lead this group of women on the journey to wrestling stardom.
There is no going backward
GLOW co- showrunner Carley Mensch told, “The fun of our show is there is no going backward.”
“People are in very different places from where they were the last time they were in Los Angeles. There’s been a really fun Vegas impact. None of our characters are actually where they were, now that I’m doing the math. For such a character-driven show, for us the setting or the location isn’t as important as where people are in their lives — where Ruth is, where Debbie is, Carmen’s headed for a pretty drastically different place, a lot of the women at the end of season 3 don’t even know the potential opportunities ahead. As we’re heading to some pretty new territory for us, even if maybe the landscape looks familiar, can you go home again, can you never go home again are all things that we’re excited to dive into,” Carley Mensch added.
The first season of GLOW came on June 23, 2017, consisting of 10 episodes. The series was renewed on June 29, 2018, for season 2 and September 20, 2019, for season 3.
What do we know so far?
The series was filmed in several locations in Los Angeles, mainly in the San Fernando Valley. The third season of GLOW took to Las Vegas, but the finale set up a new world for the characters and a return home. Now headliners at the Fan-Tan Hotel and Casino, the women quickly realize that Sin City is much more grinding than glitter. Ruth’s passion for the show begins to take a backseat to her increasingly complicated personal life.
The GLOW last season release date is yet to be revealed. GLOW has won the award for Outstanding Stunt Coordination for a Comedy Series at Creative Arts Emmys, while Betty Gilpin is up for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series at these years Emmys.
