'GLOW' Cast Virtually Reunites After Cancellation News

The cast of GLOW is getting back together again.

Following the news that the Netflix series was canceled amid the pandemic, the stars reunited for a virtual reunion on Saturday (October 10).

During their discussion, an effort created in partnership with HeadCount and #GoodToVote, the stars also encouraged viewers to vote.

“Our show is among many other things about people who sometimes feel powerless [that] do powerful things. Right now, I think the most powerful thing you can do is vote,” said Betty Gilpin.

The cast previously teased that if 250 of their fans registered to vote or made a voting plan, they would have the live Q&A — and if 1,000 joined in, Marc Maron would join.

Marc revealed that he based Sam off his own experience with coke.

“I had made some decisions about how Sam did cocaine from my own experience from doing cocaine. I walked up to Liz and Carly who were the dorkiest two women in the world, real nerds, and I just said to them, look this guy – he doesn’t carry a vile, there’s no bindle, he just does it out of a folded corner of a magazine that he loaded up with probably a pen top or a key, that’s what this guy does. They just looked at me for a second and Liz goes, ‘we’re so glad you’re here.’”

Alison Brie talked about Ruth and Sam’s first kiss.

“In the script, it was sort of like, ‘Sam turns to kiss her – she breaks away immediately’ and as we were doing it they kept having us do it [more and said], ‘Alison, don’t turn away so quickly’ and I was like, ‘oh, ok’ and finally they came out and were like ‘what if you just fully kiss,’ this was season two, and I was like ‘what, I’m gonna need to speak to Liz and Carly…’ I was more just not prepared for Ruth and Sam to go there yet but Marc took it a little personally.”

Betty discussed scheduling the reunion before the cancellation.

“We scheduled this Zoom when we thought we still had a season 4 so it feels like we invited you to our wedding and then the groom had sex with a cross-eyed cocktail waitress and now we’re all just drunk at the venue together and we’re like ‘enjoy the quiches because it’s over!’ If this wedding is now a funeral, let’s make it one of those fun great ones,” Betty also said.

Glow is unfortunately not the only show that has been cancelled after being renewed by Netflix.

Marc Maron Wants 'Glow' To Get a Movie to Wrap Up The Series

Marc Maron is opening up about the recent cancellation of Glow on Netflix.

The 57-year-old actor, who played Sam Sylvia in the series with Alison Brie and Betty Gilpin, took to his Instagram Story (via) telling the streaming giant to think about a movie to close out the series instead of leaving the open ended storylines hanging.

“Let us wrap it up in a two-hour Netflix movie. Give the showrunners and the cast and the writers the chance to finish the story in a movie, right? Then it’s all fine,” he shared. “That would take the financial pressure off and the writers could play it out, we could shoot it out.”

Marc went on, “The thing about shooting a movie is that when you have the whole shooting script you can be economical about your shooting. I think they could do it in less time than it would take to shoot the show.”

He also spoke about the reasons behind the cancellation of the hit show, which Netflix said was due to the pandemic.

“The reason I was given from the showrunners was basically a financial one in that they didn’t want to pay to keep the sets alive anymore,” he shared. “We’ve got two offices and soundstages being leased. They were two and a half episodes in on the day they went into lockdown.”

Marc added, “I was told that they didn’t want to eat the cost of maintaining the sets for another six or seven months to begin production. So that’s what we heard. Honestly, who knows? The protocols they have in place now, I know there are a lot of things being shot, but we have a big cast and crew. Who knows where we’re going to be in January?”

This other Netflix series was also just cancelled after only one season.

'Glow' Cancelled By Netflix After Previously Being Renewed, 'Teenage Bounty Hunters' Also Axed

Netflix has cancelled Glow after three seasons on the streaming service, after previously renewing the show over a year ago for a fourth and final season.

The reason why? The COVID-19 pandemic.

“COVID has killed actual humans. It’s a national tragedy and should be our focus. COVID also apparently took down our show. Netflix has decided not to finish filming the final season of GLOW,” series creators Liz Flahive and Carly Mensch said in a statement to Deadline. “We were handed the creative freedom to make a complicated comedy about women and tell their stories. And wrestle. And now that’s gone. There’s a lot of sh*tty things happening in the world that are much bigger than this right now. But it still sucks that we don’t get to see these 15 women in a frame together again.”

“We’ll miss our cast of weirdo clowns and our heroic crew. It was the best job,” they continued, adding, “Register to vote. And please vote.”

The fourth season of Glow was filming when production was shut down in March due to the pandemic.

In addition, Teenage Bounty Hunters was also cancelled after only one season.

Glow is unfortunately not the only show that has been cancelled after being renewed by Netflix.

Director Lynn Shelton's Boyfriend Marc Maron Mourns Her Death in Heartbreaking Statement

Marc Maron, the partner of late director Lynn Shelton, is speaking out with a heartbreaking statement following her untimely death.

Lynn passed away on Friday night (May 15) due to a previously unidentified blood disorder.

“I have some awful news. Lynn passed away last night. She collapsed yesterday morning after having been ill for a week,” Marc said in a statement to IndieWire. “There was a previously unknown, underlying condition. It was not COVID-19. The doctors could not save her. They tried. Hard.”

“I loved her very much as I know many of you did as well. It’s devastating. I am leveled, heartbroken and in complete shock and don’t really know how to move forward in this moment. I needed you all to know. I don’t know some of you. Some I do. I’m just trying to let the people who were important to her know,” Marc continued.

“She was a beautiful, kind, loving, charismatic artist. Her spirit was pure joy. She made me happy. I made her happy. We were happy. I made her laugh all the time. We laughed a lot. We were starting a life together. I really can’t believe what is happening. This is a horrendous, sad loss,” he concluded.

Marc is one of the stars of the Netflix series GLOW and Lynn directed five episodes of the show across its three seasons.
