"GLOW" just got body slammed by COVID-19.
The creators of Netflix's 1980s-set wrestling drama, which had just begun filming its final season when the coronavirus pandemic hit, say the series has been canceled.
"COVID has killed actual humans. It’s a national tragedy and should be our focus. COVID also apparently took down our show," creators Liz Flahive and Carly Mensch said in a statement. "Netflix has decided not to finish filming the final season of ‘GLOW.’ "
The series, which premiered in 2017, explored the business and personal lives of women who made up a professional wrestling organization in Los Angeles. "GLOW" starred Alison Brie, Marc Caron, Betty Gilpin and Oceanside native Jackie Tohn.
