Alison Brie’s debut came with the role of Trudy Campbell in the drama series Mad Men. She rose to prominence after portraying Diane Nguyen in the animated comedy series BoJack Horseman. Alison recently expressed her heartbreak at Netflix’s surprise cancellation of ‘GLOW.’
The actress spoke with Decider to promote her new film, Spin Me Round. She was questioned about the unexpected turn of events surrounding the end of her Netflix series ‘GLOW.’ The show was renewed for a fourth and final season in September 2019.
During the COVID-19 pandemic in October 2020, the streaming giant reversed their decision and announced that GLOW was done for good. The actress went on to say how much she still misses the series.
“It’s the great heartbreak of my career. But it will forever live on as, like, this great thing. I loved working on it — maybe more than anything I’ve worked on — and I miss it a lot. But I feel very grateful for the time I had on the show.”
When asked about Netflix’s decision, Brie said, “Yeah, it was surprising! But it was sort of eclipsed by the shock of everything that was happening globally. (Laughs.) You know, so in a way, it was almost like it put things in perspective.”
GLOW earned 18 Emmy nominations and three wins throughout its run. It was a fictionalized telling of the real-life women’s professional wrestling program called Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling, which launched in the 1980s.
Betty Gilpin, Sydelle Noel, Britney Young, and Marc Maron also starred in the Netflix series. To get the latest updates, keep an eye on Thirsty.
