While Netflix started out as the network to head to if you didn’t want your favorite show to get canceled, in recent years, they’ve been fairly brutal with the cancellation hammer, with plenty of fan-favorite shows ending unceremoniously after just two to three seasons. As it stands, many fans are still fearing for their shows, with GLOW fans being a prominent bunch.
Well, it’s time to celebrate (or lament) news coming from THR. Netflix has officially ordered a fourth season for the shonen anime series (looks at notes)…wait, that’s not right? I mean the Emmy-winning wrestling show that stars Alison Brie and Betty Gilpin.
Following the third season cliffhanger, this will come as a relief, but as it turns out, this will be the final season. It will come back for 10 more episodes before ending for good. So, yay, it’s coming back! But, boo, only for one more season. Luckily, it sounds like this was all part of the plan.
“We have a full story to tell and whether or not we’re idiots for not giving ourselves an ending this season remains to be seen,” said co-showrunner Liz Flahive on the risk of ending that third season as they did. “We’ve played it this way every season, where we’ve sort of left it all on the field. This show has a big heart and a big cast and big story to tell, and other people are not going to set that limit for us. We can’t do that, because it wouldn’t be fair to what we’re trying to do. We’d love to have the opportunity to give the show a satisfying ending.”
It looks like that opportunity has presented itself!
