Well, that’s somewhat surprising. Not that I mind Glee, but ordering up two more seasons to avoid pesky contract negotiations next year is pretty ballsy. Fans who found themselves anxious regarding the fate of Glee can now rest at ease. Fox has picked up not one but two more seasons of the musical comedy.
According to Deadline, Fox Chairman Kevin Reilly had this to say:
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.
Such great news! Glee will be back for season 5 and 6! I’m so happy!!! Can’t wait to see what Rachel will be up to next year! #gleeseason5
