The writing was on the wall since the late renewal for Glee made it difficult to work on an ideal schedule for the show, making Oxygen to cancel The Glee Project after two seasons and a handful of characters added to the show via reality TV casting process.
A spokesman for the NBCUniversal-owned cable network stated the decision has nothing to do with the death of Glee star Cory Monteith. But it surely does not help the case for the show.
“The Glee Project will not be returning to Oxygen but we are extremely proud of this series, which launched the careers of several talented individuals. The show had so much heart, and we thank Ryan Murphy and all of the creative talent who helped make the series a critical darling,” Oxygen said in a statement.
“The Glee Project” contenders were narrowed down through intensive rounds of workshops, singing, dancing and acting-based assignments as the creative forces of “Glee” carefully assess who has what it takes to be one of the next new faces of the award-winning show.
