January is midway already, and a lot of announcements made, so my work to complete the lists for cancelled shows on 2012 and renewed shows on 2012 is also starting to pile up.
In this case, Oxygen renews The Glee Project for season two.
In the official announcement, it reads: Oxygen has picked up a second season of the critically acclaimed competition series “The Glee Project” for a summer 2012 debut. The spinoff competition series, which awards one winner a seven episode arc on “Glee,” will return with Ryan Murphy and Dante Di Loreto continuing as executive producers along with series executive producers Michael Davies and Shauna Minoprio of Embassy Row. “The Glee Project” will air on Oxygen this summer with 14 contenders — two more than season one — additional themes and all new music. Second season casting recently wrapped up, with thousands of hopefuls auditioning online and in a multi-city casting tour. Murphy will once again join casting director Robert Ulrich, choreographer and “Glee” co-producer Zach Woodlee and vocal coach Nikki Anders in the final deliberations of each installment of the series.
The show had already been unofficially renewed, since a casting call for second season was issued in September, but it´s always nice to have it confirmed. This should also mean Glee renewal announcement is coming soon too.
