Gleeks go crazy! Everyone’s favorite musical/show, Glee, has already been picked up for a third season. Its first season wraps up on June 8. Peter Rice, who is the Fox Networks Group Entertainment Chairman (the channel on which the show airs), said, “In just one year, Glee has transcended the television landscape and emerged as a global pop culture phenomenon,” so it figures that they’d want to keep the motor running.
The creator of the series, Ryan Murphy, seems rather happy. He added, “It’s been a whirlwind year — from shooting the pilot to performing at the White House to the concert tour that began last week — and yet we all feel like we’ve just begun this amazing musical journey. We think our Gleeks worldwide are going to love what we’ll have in store for them in seasons two and three.”
There’s also high praise from the Queen herself, Madonna! Her episode won such smashing reviews that another Madonna-centric piece is being planned. She commented, “I thought the Madonna episode of Glee was brilliant on every level. The dialogue and the entire script was genius. The entire cast was amazing. They’re all so talented. I especially loved Sue Sylvester [Jane Lynch] and Kurt Hummel’s [Chris Colfer] characters. Ryan Murphy did a great job bringing all these elements together.” Well, if Madge has given her blessings, then they’re onto something!
