Streaming-giant Netflix will produce its Emmy award-winning series for a fourth and last season. The show which is inspired by a short-lived 1980s wrestling TV show called “Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling,” has had a lot of success since its 2017 series premiere.
Variety describes the series plot:
“It follows the fictional story of Ruth Wilder […] an out-of-work, struggling actress in Los Angeles who finds one last chance for stardom when she’s thrust into world of women’s wrestling. In addition to working with 12 Hollywood misfits, Ruth also has to compete with Debbie Eagan […] Ruth’s best friend and 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 […] a washed-up, B-movie director who now must lead this group of women on the journey to wrestling stardom,” writes Variety’s Joe Otterson.
Season 3 had its premiere in August this year and showed the “GLOW” team relocate to Las Vegas to perform in their own nightly show, with guest stars such as Geena Davis.
Series creators Liz Flahive and Carly Mensch will return as executive producers and showrunners, along with executive producers Jenji Kohan, Tara Herrmann, and Mark Burley. The series stars 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.
