GLOW Season 2

In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Alison Brie said the the wait for the fourth and final season of GLOW may be a longer one due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Here are highlights:

On the hiatus for GLOW: “Sadly, I think it’s going to mean a longer hiatus for our show than probably some other shows that might be able to get back to work sooner and maintain a safe environment. I think especially because it’s the final season … there’s a sense of wanting to preserve what the show is. And at its heart, it’s a wrestling show. It’s a really physical show. It’s the main driving force of these characters and how they’ve found themselves is through wrestling and through this close contact with one another — with one another’s bodies, specifically. So, I think if we tried to really change that, it would feel like a different show. I think it’s going to be more about rapid testing and seeing if we can just monitor everybody’s health to make sure that actors can be in close proximity to one another.”

On rumors that she will play She-Hulk: “You know, I’ve been trying to follow it online a little bit, and there don’t seem to be. But it is always funny to me when something kind of takes off on the internet, and I’m getting my updates from fans tagging me in things on Instagram. I’m like, “Oh, interesting. Oh, people are still talking about it. That’s cool.”

On if she anticipates more safety precautions for GLOW, like gloves: “I don’t. Sadly, I think it’s going to mean a longer hiatus for our show than probably some other shows that might be able to get back to work sooner and maintain a safe environment. Especially because it’s the final season and we already know that, there’s a sense of wanting to preserve what the show is. And at its heart, it’s a wrestling show. It’s a really physical show. It’s the main driving force of these characters and how they’ve found themselves is through wrestling and through this close contact with one another — with one another’s bodies, specifically. So, if we tried to really change that, it would feel like a different show.
