The Show Must Go On - Fox Renews Musical Series Glee For Two More Seasons


Lea Michele Cory Monteith

Fox’s musical dramedy series Glee has been renewed and will join returning shows like Bones and The Following on the network’s roster. Not only that, but Glee has been renewed for a fifth and sixth season, meaning we can expect the Lea Michele starrer back in 2014 as well. "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,” Fox entertainment chairman Kevin Reilly said in a statement announcing the news on Friday. “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.”

Back in January, Reilly dropped a hint that the network might be renewing Glee for more than one season, by saying: "We're going to negotiate now for the fifth season and beyond."

The decision makes sense for Fox, since Glee – as loved and hated by audiences as it may be – is one of the network’s top performers in terms of ratings. It has performed especially well in its new Thursday 9PM slot and the writers have covered topics oriented toward a more mature audience, like in last week’s school shooting themed episode. It will be interesting what direction the writing team decide to take now, with the possibility of developing story arcs over the next two seasons.

Cory Monteith Glee

The Glee actor Cory Monteith has checked into rehab, according to a story from People. Apparently, the 30 year-old admitted himself into rehab voluntarily, to deal with substance addictions. He’s been known to have suffered from issues relating to addiction in the past and his rep told People that he has “voluntarily admitted himself to a treatment facility for substance addiction.”

His rep added “he graciously asks for your respect and privacy as he takes the necessary steps towards recovery.” Back in 2011, Monteith spoke about past issues that he had had with substance abuse and revealed that he had been in rehab before, when was aged just 19. During the interview, he explained that he hoped that being public and honest about his rehab would help other people going through similar struggles. “I don't want kids to think it's okay to drop out of school and get high, and they'll be famous actors, too," he said, back in 2011. "But for those people who might give up: Get real about what you want and go after it.”

In another report, from Deadline, a spokesperson from the Fox network revealed that the show has two more episodes to shoot in the current series. “Cory is a beloved member of the Glee family and we fully support his decision to seek treatment,” said the show’s producers 20th Century Fox. ““Everyone at the show wishes him well and looks forward to his return.”

Lea Michelle And Cory Monteith Officially An Item


Cory Monteith

It’s official! An early Christmas present for gleeks everywhere – Glee’s Lea Michelle has confirmed that she is dating co-star Cory Monteith. The pair have been an on-again-off-again item on screen ever since the show’s first season and finally, on last week’s episode of Ellen, Monteith confirmed that life does indeed imitate art. Well, it imitates Glee, at least.

Unlike Rachel and Finn, their on-screen counterparts, the real-life pair seem very happy and stable. “No one knows me better than Cory. No one knows what it's been like to go through this more than he does … He makes me feel like I can do anything,” Lea Michelle comments in a Marie Claire interview.

Good for them, we say. A stable relationship like Mochelle’s (the newest abomination of a couple’s nickname) is a rare thing in Hollywood, so it seems only natural to root for the happy couple. However, those who were hoping that their real-life romance might add some plausibility to the Glee plotlines probably shouldn’t hold their breath. It’s unknown how long the couple has been together, but rumors about them first started surfacing this spring, and so far, the off-screen romance doesn’t seem to have impacted the show in any way.

Glee's Lea Michele And Cory Monteith Open Up About Their Relationship


Lea Michele Cory Monteith Glee Ellen Degeneres

Rachel and Finn have had a very tumultuous relationship in Glee, to say the least. But in real life the actors who play both those characters have a dream-like relationship. 

Lea Michele (Rachel) and Cora Monteith (Finn) have been dating for months but they only unveiled the news publicly on Ellen, to its host Ellen Degeneres. Ellen asked him about 'Monchele' and what it means. He replied "Well, of course I know what Monchele is... it's Monteith and Michele... Yeah [we are a couple]." The news of which inspired the audience to scream their approval. 

Despite both looking as though they're in high school, like their famous Glee characters, Michele is in fact 26 while Cory is 30, and it's right about time for a grown-up relationship. Michele is gracing the cover of Marie Claire this month in which she has spoken about her relationship with Cory. "I don't even remember a time when he wasn't my boyfriend. No one knows me better than Cory," quotes NY Daily News. "No one knows what it's been like to go through this more than he does. Feeling like you have that net underneath you allows you to jump higher and go farther... He makes me feel like I can do anything. For the first time in my life, I feel really, really settled and happy. I feel like the luckiest girl in the world."

Glee: The 3D Concert Movie Review


Good
The Glee phenomenon hits the big screen with this oddly conceived movie, which documents the social phenomenon but reveals nothing about the series or actors beyond the songs they sing.

Made primarily for fans who couldn't attend the summer 2011 tour, this is mainly a concert movie featuring some 20 songs from the TV show. Each main character gets his or her moment in the spotlight as they stir the arena crowd into a frenzy of adoration. Between numbers, we meet fans who have felt the show's impact: sparky high-school cheerleader Janae, who's only incidentally a dwarf; the soulful Trenton, who was forced out as gay in eighth grade; and the reclusive Josie, who has emerged from her shell as a Gleek.
