It was much discussed, and somewhat of a surprise, as the negotiations seemed like they would take longer, and even some put this show on the bubble, specially since Ryan Murphy, show´s creator has sold another show and makes him one of the busiest men on television, but finally, Fox made it happen: Fox renewed Glee for two more seasons, extending the show towards seasons five and six.
The show is syndicated on Oxygen and has a huge following internationally, making it more attractive to be renewed, even though slipping in the ratings.
This also opens the negotiations for The Glee Project to be brought back by Oxygen too, as the satellite show showcases the casting process for Glee and has already found several castmembers to be added to the musical.
“GLEE has been a signature series for the studio since its launch four years ago and we couldn’t be happier that FOX has ordered two more seasons,” commented Twentieth Century Fox Television Chairmen Dana Walden and Gary Newman. “Ryan, Brad, Ian and Dante have created something that is far larger than a television show; it’s a global entertainment brand which continues to touch millions around the world. From its chart-topping musical numbers to its inventive storytelling and rich, complex characters, GLEE rewrote the rules of what network television could be, and we are enormously proud to be the studio behind it.”
