Alison Brie on a Possible GLOW Movie: ‘Don’t Hold Your Breath’ | IGN

One of the more recent casualties of Netflix’s new harsh habit of canceling shows unceremoniously is GLOW, which, rather than being canceled, was actually ‘un-renewed.’ Which is to say it had already been picked up for a fourth and final season before Netflix changed its mind and pulled the plug completely, leaving fans in limbo with an unfinished story.

Obviously, in times like these, viewers might clamor for that one extra season, even if it’s a shortened version, just to give some closure. Or, in this case, a GLOW wrap up movie, which fans (and star Marc Maron) have asked for.

While talking to The Playlist’s podcast, The Fourth Wall, Brie opened up about the possibility of a movie – and why she’s not exactly counting on it happening.

“I certainly think a [GLOW] movie could tie everything up,” Brie said. “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,” Brie continued, “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.”
