Don’t ever stop believin’ Glee Fans! FOX has just announced that Glee has been awarded with not one — but two additional seasons. The network announced Friday morning that the hit musical-comedy has been renewed for a Season 5 and Season 6.
Kevin Reilly, Chairman of Entertainment, Fox Broadcasting Company, revealed how pleased the network is to have Glee for another two years. “Glee debuted as the first and only successful musical comedy series on television, and more than four years later, it continues to defy genres, break new ground and have a significant impact on popular culture,” said Reilly.
“Week in and week out, Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk, Ian Brennan, Dante DiLoreto and the entire Glee team deliver a series that not only delights and surprises fans, but also inspires them to talk about, share, debate and engage with the show – and I’m absolutely thrilled to have them on board for another two seasons,” Reilly concluded.
Glee creator Ryan Murphy added, “I am very grateful to Kevin, Dana and Gary for their incredible support of this series from the beginning. But I also want to thank our loyal audience, whose passion and enthusiasm continue to amaze and inspire us.”
