‘GLOW’ Renewed for Fourth and Final Season at Netflix

Alison Brie-led wrestling drama debuted its third season last month

“GLOW” has been renewed for one final round at Netflix, the streamer announced on Friday.

Stars Alison Brie, Betty Gilpin and Marc Maron will return to the ring for the 1980-set wrestling dramedy’s fourth and final season at the streaming service, along with creators and showrunners Liz Flahive and Carly Mensch.

News of the renewal comes a month after “GLOW” debuted its critically acclaimed third season on the streaming service back in August, and just days before Sunday’s Emmy Awards where Gilpin is nominated for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series for her work on Season 2.

Inspired by the short-lived but beloved show from the ’80s, “GLOW” stars Brie as a struggling actress-turned-wrestler in 1980s Los Angeles. Gilpin co-stars as a former soap actress who is sucked into the world of professional wrestling when her picture-perfect life is revealed to be less than it seems. Maron plays a washed-up, B-movie director who now must lead this group of women on the journey to wrestling stardom. Season 3 moved the action to the Vegas strip, where the ragtag crew has set up shop as headliners at the Fan-Tan Hotel and Casino and quickly realize Sin City is much more grind than glitter.

In addition to Flahive and Mensch, “Orange Is the New Black” creator Jenji Kohan, Tara Herrmann and Mark Burley also serve as executive producers on the series.
