GLOW's reign at Netflix is coming to an end. 

The Emmy-winning comedy series has been renewed for a fourth and final season. 

The hit series stars Alison Brie, Betty Gilpin, and Marc Maron -- all of whom are expected to be part of the last hurrah. 

Staring at the Lights - GLOW

Creators Liz Flahive and Carly Mensch will return as showrunners, writers, and executive producers, alongside executive producers Jenji Kohan, Tara Herrmann, and Mark Burley.

The series is inspired by the short-lived but beloved show from the 80s.

GLOW in Lights

It tells the fictional story of Ruth Wilder (Alison Brie), an out-of-work, struggling actress in 1980s Los Angeles who finds one last chance for stardom when she’s thrust into the glitter and spandex world of women's wrestling.

In addition to working with 12 Hollywood misfits, Ruth also has to compete with Debbie Eagan (Betty Gilpin ), a former soap actress who left the business to have a baby, only to be sucked back into work when her picture-perfect life is not what it seems.

And at the wheel is Sam Sylvia (Marc Maron), a washed-up, B-movie director who now must lead this group of women on the journey to wrestling stardom.

The show has been a critical success from its inception, as well as an awards magnet for Netflix. 

To date, the series has earned 15 Emmy® nominations, and three wins, 7 Screen Actors Guild Award nominations and one win, 2 Golden Globe Nominations, 3 WGA Award Nominations, and 2 Art Directors Guild Award wins.

The decision to renew the series will be a welcome one for fans, but it's sad that it will be the last-ever one. 

Business or Pleasure? - GLOW

The series was on the bubble for a third season renewal, and given that Netflix has canceled a string of popular shows over the last year, fans have been waiting on tenterhooks for a decision.
