Alison Brie Calls Netflix's unexpected cancellation of 'GLOW' "The Great Heartbreak of My Career"

The actress said she still misses the show, which was picked up for a fourth season until it was cancelled a year later.

GLOW clearly still has a firm grip on Alison Brie.

In an interview published Friday to promote her new film Spin Me Round, the actress was asked about the unexpected turn of events surrounding the end of her Netflix series GLOW. 

The show was picked up for a fourth and final season in September 2019, but the streamer reversed the decision in October 2020 amid the COVID-19 pandemic and announced it was done for good.

Brie told the outlet, "It's the greatest heartbreak of my career." "But it will always be remembered as this great thing." 

I loved working on it — perhaps more than anything else I've done — and I miss it terribly. But I'm grateful for the time I spent on the show."

Brie said, "Yeah, it was surprising! But the shock of everything that was happening globally sort of overshadowed it. (Laughs.) It was almost like it put things into perspective, you know.

GLOW was a fictionalised version of the real-life women's professional wrestling programme Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling, which debuted in the 1980s and received 18 Emmy nominations and three wins during its run.
