<i>Glee</i> Goes For Three

Love it or hate it, Glee is one of those shows that burst out of nowhere and suddenly existed everywhere — and it's going to stay everywhere through its third season at least. Not even finished with its first season, Glee has been renewed for a third year, states a FOX press release.

“In just one year, Glee has transcended the television landscape and emerged as a global pop culture phenomenon,” said Peter Rice, Chairman, Entertainment of FOX Networks Group. “We are incredibly proud to have talent like Ryan Murphy and the Glee cast in our FOX family, and we can’t wait to see where Ryan takes the show in Seasons Two and Three.”

“Brad, Ian, Dante, the cast and I are all thrilled and honored by the overwhelming support of Glee from FOX, the studio and our amazing fans,” said Murphy, co-creator and executive producer of Glee. “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. Having time to plan ahead is wonderful, and we think our GLEEks worldwide are going to love what we’ll have in store for them in Seasons Two and Three.”
