After another rousing bout of wrestling, GLOW season 3 was a smash hit. But will GLOW break the mold and make it through to the fourth season? Or will GLOW fall victim to the dreaded third season curse Netflix has inflicted upon many of their Originals. Let’s find out.
GLOW has been one of the most refreshing shows on Netflix in the past few years, gaining its own fiercely loyal fanbase. There’s a phenomenal blend of great drama and comedic moments that makes GLOW one of the best Originals available on Netflix to date.
The Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling have hit the road and headed to sin city! Vegas holds brand new challenges for the girls as they attempt to reinvigorate the popularity of the all-female wrestling promotion.
GLOW Season 4 Netflix Renewal Status
Official Netflix Renewal Status: Pending (Last Updated: 13/08/2019)
There’s an ongoing perception that Netflix Originals don’t make it past the third season. Hemlock Grove, Santa Clarita Diet and One Day at a Time spring to mind on some of the Originals that have indeed failed to make it to that coveted fourth season.
It’s likely news on the renewal of GLOW won’t arrive until September. Netflix typically waits a month to make their decision on the future of an Original series. The reason for the wait is so Netflix can put together all the data on how many subscribers returned to watch the series, new viewers and how many subscribers watched the series in full.
Unknown to many subscribers, if you pick up a series and don’t watch the season in full, Netflix takes that as you not enjoying the series, adding a strike against renewal. If you’re a fan of the series and want to see it renewed then make sure you get round to watching all of the third season.
Does GLOW need another season?
The ending of the fourth season definitely warrants another round for GLOW.
After Bash and Debbie successfully went behind the back of Tex, they successfully bought a Television network in Los Angeles. Bash pulled all of his money out of Rhapsody and into the deal thus the strip club is closing and GLOW would be without a home. Debbie revealed to Ruth that as the president of the network, she and Bash want to form a new wrestling promotion in Los Angeles with brand new characters.
After all the rejections from her auditions, it looked like Ruth was going to join Debbie and take up her offer of being a director. Deciding against this, Ruth wants to stay the path and is determined to become an actor no matter how long it takes her.
GLOW is still alive but will have a new roster of characters when it goes live on Bash’s new television network. Carmen is leaving GLOW to join her brother Kurt on the road. Ruth’s future is unclear but she may join new GLOW and avoid taking the director’s seat as Debbie wanted. As for the other ladies, they have no idea about the television network and not all of them may make the cut for Bash and Debbie’s wrestling promotion.
Suffice to say there’s still plenty of story left for the Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling.
Did subscribers enjoy the third season?
Season 3 of #GLOW ends in such a way where, were there not a Season 4, it would be a fucking shame. So yes, PLEASE, WATCH THIS SHOW because as we’ve seen this year, Netflix has not been kind to lady-created TV series. https://t.co/Z9tYKN7Fzi
