The Glee Project will return for a second season, Oxygen announced Tuesday.

"The Glee Project is a special show that has tapped into a desire in our culture to watch people go for and achieve their dreams," Oxygen President Jason Klarman said.

The show averaged some 1.19 million viewers last summer and gained attention for its social/multiplatform success.

Executive producer Ryan Murphy will return to join casting director Robert Ulrich, choreographer and Glee co-producer Zach Woodlee and vocal coach Nikki Anders as judges. It's slated to premiere sometime in the summer.
