‘Glee’ Renewed for Two More Seasons

'Glee' Renewed Two More Seasons

Series extended through 2015

Fox has extended musical dramedy “Glee” for two seasons, extending the series through at least 2015.

“Glee,” which wraps its fourth season May 9, had a 2.2 rating and 6 share among viewers 18-49 in its most recent airing Thursday and averaged 6.2 million viewers overall. The show has dipped from its previous season but has strong DVR viewership and has survived the transition of many of its characters out of its initial high school setting.

“ ‘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,” said Fox entertainment chairman Kevin Reilly.

Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk, Ian Brennan and Dante DiLoreto exec produce “Glee.”

“Ryan, Brad, Ian and Dante have created something that is far larger than a television show; it’s a global entertainment brand which continues to touch millions around the world,” said Twentieth Century Fox Television chairmen Dana Walden and Gary Newman.  “We are enormously proud to be the studio behind it.”

The show continues to attract high-profile guests, including Sarah Jessica Parker, who will guest in next week’s episode.

    Okay, I have a gay son. He hates this show. My wife and I enjoyed it, she now more than I. Why? the story lines are a joke; having the big black tranny is NOT right and I don’t believe would ever happen in our schools today. Frankly, every time he comes prancing onto the screen in his push-up bra and wig, my stomach turns. There are some limits to what is proper and what isn’t. Right now it is not. If the producers and creator of this show think for a minute that America is going to embrace transgenders on TV, I don’t think so. For this reason and many others you have lost a viewer. I didn’t care for the last episode of the ‘school’ shooting. Wasn’t even believable.

      Each to their own. I’ve loved Glee since day one (when the pilot aired before the show was on the FOX schedule), and feel it gets even better with each passing season. I was hoping it would make it at least ONE for season, I’m soooo happy it got a to year renewal.
