Fans of Fox’s “Glee” came out in droves to see members of the cast and crew talk about the upcoming season of last year’s surprise phenom. After an extended highlight reel of last season’s best moments, Ryan Murphy & Co. talked candidly about the skein tuner and what to expect in the second season.
How was shooting the Madonna episode?
Ryan Murphy: Most shoots are eight or nine days, but this was twelve, and it went over budget in the first few days. It was hard, but I told the kids “Do it for Madonna.”
The “Vogue” video was the funniest day because we were so exact. We even used props from the video found in the warehouse. The whole episode was done with a lot of love and care.
Can you give us a preview of the next season?
RM: I think people think we are going to get bigger, but we are going to go in a different direction. The characters pop so much, so the second season will be more intimate, based on the feedback of fans. We’ll have more tribute episodes but do five musical numbers per episode rather than eight.
