The 'Glee' franchise faces some unique circumstances going forward into a potential fifth season, as FOX continues to negotiate with cast and crew to re-sign -- though a fifth season could abandon the dual-city format and present a very different series next fall. News broke recently that Oxygen's tie-in reality competition 'The Glee Project' wouldn't return for a third season, perhaps fallen to FOX's prolonged negotiations, but might the show live on after all? Hear what Oxygen says inside!
Late last summer at Comic-Con 2012, 'Glee' series regular Kevin McHale (Artie Abrams) jokingly proposed that he'd like to see 'Sons of Anarchy' star and 'Married With Children' icon Katey Sagal take the role of his oft-mentioned, never seen mother. Who knew wishful thinking was all Ryan Murphy needed to make it happen? The actress/singer, and wife to 'Sons of Anarchy' creator Kurt Sutter will indeed make an appearance this season on 'Glee,' but will she be everything McHale hoped?
Despite the fact that 'Glee' creator Ryan Murphy's flagship series has yet to secure an official season 5 pickup, while NBC's 'The New Normal' remains on the bubble, Murphy has already begun the search for his post 'American Horror Story: Coven' success story. New reports claim the prolific producer will next shop a racy new sexuality drama to premium cable, but will Murphy's 'Open' live up to its namesake?
'Glee' fans well know that the series' season 4 set out to be one of change and transition, moving several characters into the New York setting while introducing a number of additional characters back in the primary setting of Lima, Ohio. Now, as the series prepares for its endgame, with no official season 5 renewal announced, 'Glee' has made a change it did not intend. Series star Cory Monteith has entered rehab for substance abuse, but how will it affect the end of the current season?
Near of a year ago, reporters and 'Glee' fans alike were shocked to learn that the Ryan Murphy musical drama would follow through on its promise of graduation, splitting the narrative between Rachel Berry and Kurt Hummel's New York adventures, and both new and returning players back in Lima, Ohio. Now, even as the experiment has proven largely successful, is 'Glee' plotting to abandon Lima and move to a single location once more? Get the scoop on 'Glee' season 5 from creator Ryan Murphy inside!
FOX's 'Glee' has found itself embroiled in criticism and controversy now and again, though the latest might be a bit hard to ignore. Musician Jonathan Coulton recently made public his belief that 'Glee' had not only ripped off his unique cover of Sir Mix-A-Lot's infamous "Baby Got Back," but potentially even sampled the track as well. FOX made no public response or acknowledgement of the controversy, but apparently responded to Coulton's claims denying any legal culpability, and potentially encouraging him to be grateful for the exposure. Hear the new 'Glee' controversy for yourself inside!
Appearing in everything from 'Yes, Dear' to recurring as 'Glee's' patron saint of TV dads Burt Hummel, Mike O'Malley is altogether known for his blue-collar characters, frequently with hearts of gold. The actor's fans may be in for a bit of a shock in the next few weeks, however, as we've learned that O'Malley will appear in an upcoming episode of 'Justified' season 4 acting none-too-friendly! The 'Glee' star will portray a member of the Dixie mafia at odds with Raylan Givens, but how long will he stick around? Get the latest 'Justified' scoop inside!
Despite the fact that 'Glee's somewhat awkward scheduling has left another hiatus from December 13's "Glee, Actually" all the way to January 24 premiere "Sadie Hawkins," FOX couldn't be more pleased with the series. And while last year's graduation plotlines led to a crossroads that saw the fourth season divided between New York and Ohio, is FOX already about to cue up additional seasons? New reports suggest 'Glee' might be granted a return ahead of schedule, but for how many new seasons?
Over the last few years, we've seen 'Glee' take on a number of various styles and themes, everything form Madonna to the more recent 'Grease,' but superheroes are not something we ever expected to see bounding up and down the halls of McKinley high, let alone bursting into song. Such will be the case with 'Glee's' next effort "Dynamic Duets" (we see what you did there!), so what better way to announce the arrival of the super-Gleeks than with a cinematic superhero trailer?
Yup! Ms. Lana Kane herself, or rather Aisha Tyler, actress and co-host of 'The View' will soon be bringing her golden pipes to an upcoming episode of 'Glee,' though whether or not she'll put them to use in song is anyone's guess. It remains to be seen if Tyler's role will prove a recurring appearance or even just a one-off, but who will the 'Archer' angel play?
