Alison Brie Says She’s ‘A Little Pessimistic’ About GLOW Movie Chances

There is a push among the fans and creators of GLOW to get a movie wrap-up for the season that never was, but Alison Brie isn’t sure about its chances. As reported in early October, Netflix reversed the wrestling dramedy’s fourth season renewal due to pandemic-related issues. The cast has pushed for a film to close out the series and Brie told The Playlist’s The Fourth Wall podcast that she supports the idea, but warned fans not to get their hopes too high.

“I certainly think a [‘GLOW’] movie could tie everything up,” said Brie. “Our creators, Liz Flahive and Carly Mensch, are incredible writers. And they’re so devoted to these characters that they created. I think a movie would be a great way to wrap it up. I’m a little pessimistic about it actually happening just in light of everything that’s gone on this year and how difficult it is to get anything back into production with COVID, and I’m also part of the ‘Community’ cast, who’s been trying to get a movie going for six years, so what I’m saying is don’t hold your breath because if it does happen, it might take a minute.”

She continued, “It’s definitely a bummer. I’m going to miss playing with those incredible women and Marc Maron and Chris Lowell. But you know, we’re so lucky. We’re lucky that we got to make three, to me, perfect seasons of a show. I love it so much and it will live on Netflix forever. So people can still check it out.”

The show was a critical hit for Netflix and did good numbers, but delays in filming from the pandemic combined with the addition of COVID-19 safety precautions to what was already an expensive show pushed it to an unprofitable level, which led to the streamer deciding not to move ahead.
