While the GLOW family agreed that they’d all like to wrap up the series with a movie, star Alison Brie tells fans not to set their hopes too high.
The actress spoke to The Playlist for an upcoming The Fourth Wall podcast talking about the Netflix cancellation and more. Netflix canceled the wrestling drama in October, baffling fans and actors. In response to the announcement, star Marc Maron said a follow-up film could be the way to tie loose ends. However, on the upcoming podcast, Brie says she isn’t sure about the possibility of a movie.
“I’m a little pessimistic that it is actually happening, just given all that has happened this year and how difficult it is to get something back into production with COVID,” she said.
The coronavirus has continued to cause problems for the industry since the pandemic began. The infectious disease has led large tent poles like Wonder Woman 1984 and Mulan to opt for digital and streaming releases and continues to urge various television productions to shut down for safety reasons. Although two vaccines in the works may look promising, the recent COVID-19 infection and deaths still don’t see a certain end, leaving the future industry in the air.
Brie added that fans have also requested a community movie for years, but noted that such a movie has not yet materialized.
“So I say don’t hold your breath because if it happens it may take a minute,” she said.
