Glee For Glee Fans As Show is Renewed for Seasons Five AND Six

Most shows are lucky to head into a second season, and when most shows are renewed, it’s one season at a time. So it speaks volumes that Glee has been renewed for seasons five and six in one go.

Fox announced that the all-singing, all-dancing comedy/drama will be on our screens for at least another few years. The all-important ratings give us some indication as to why. Season four has averaged 8.7 million viewers and a 3.6 rating in the adults 18-49 demographic. "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 president Kevin Reilly said in a statement. "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." May 9th will see season four come to a close, and will feature debuts for new character Oscar winner Patty Duke and Family Ties' Meredith Baxter as a long-term lesbian couple on the show.

Twentieth Century Fox Television Chairmen Dana Walden and Gary Newman added, "Glee has been a signature series for the studio since its launch four years ago and we couldn't be happier that Fox has ordered two more seasons. 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.”
