Despite middling ratings and buzz that died down a long time ago, Fox made the surprising decision today to renew Glee for Season 5… and Season 6!
Kevin Reilly – Chairman of Entertainment for Fox Broadcasting Company – spoke glowingly of the series upon making the announcement:
“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,” he said, adding:
“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.”
