“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 Reilly. “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.”
“I am very grateful to Kevin [Reilly], Dana [Walden] and Gary [Newman] for their incredible support of this series from the beginning,” co-creator and executive producer Ryan Murphy added. “But I also want to thank our loyal audience, whose passion and enthusiasm continue to amaze and inspire us.”
Glee averaged 8.7 million viewers and a 3.6 rating in the adults 18-49 demo in its fourth season. The series will close out its fourth season on May 9 with a big proposal set to go down!
