A real surprise given that a sequel had been in production since the summer of 2019 and that filming had already started before being paused last March, but a situation also logical. For a series that featured many hand-to-hand moments between its actors / actresses and which required the technical team to work as close as possible to the casting, health safety conditions were obviously impossible to respect on the sets in the midst of an epidemic. .
Importantly, Netflix – which has already lost a lot of money since the virus first emerged, couldn't afford a new financial risk by keeping production at a standstill until a vaccine could be created.
The designers saddened by this decision
However, if this cancellation may therefore make sense, it is nonetheless difficult to digest for Carly Mensch and Liz Flahive. In a statement, the two creators of Glow did not hide their disappointment at the idea of not being able to conclude their story.
“ The Covid obviously killed our series as well. Netflix decided not to finish filming the final season of Glow. We had been granted the creative freedom to bring to life a complex comedy centered on women and their stories. . And it's gone now, “the duo said in particular, before adding sadly,” There are a lot of shitty things going on in the world right now that are way bigger / important than that. But it still does. bitch that we can't see these 15 women together on screen anymore. “
Who knows, maybe the day the Covid-19 is gone, Netflix will organize a meeting in order to complete Glow with dignity … Our fingers are crossed.
