Netflix's GLOW has been renewed for a fourth and final season
Netflix's GLOW has been renewed for a fourth and final season.
The news was announced on Friday afternoon, in an emotional video from the series' official Twitter account.
The critically acclaimed series tells the fictional story of Ruth Wilder (Alison Brie), an out-of-work, 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.
In addition to working with 12 Hollywood misfits, Ruth also has to compete with 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.
And at the wheel is Sam Sylvia (Marc Maron), a washed-up, B-movie director who now must lead this group of women on the journey to wrestling stardom.

The third season of GLOW debuted in August, and followed the group as they took the Vegas strip by storm.
Now headliners at the Fan-Tan Hotel and Casino, the women quickly realize Sin City is much more grind than glitter.
Ever the team cheerleader, Ruth's passion for the show begins to take a backseat to her growingly complicated personal life. Debbie is making headway as a producer, but continues to be consumed with guilt over the distance between her and her son.
As their residency wears on, the lines blur between performance and reality, and the cast find themselves struggling with their own identities both in and outside of the ring.
Co-showrunner Carly Mensch hinted to EW about what fans could expect next in season four.
“The fun of our show is there is no going backwards. People are in very different places than 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 to us 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.”
