Fox Orders Two More Seasons of Glee
Fox has ordered a fifth and sixth season of Glee, the network announced Friday.
"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 Fox Chairman of Entertainment Kevin 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, Dana and Gary for their incredible support of this series from the beginning," added creator Ryan Murphy. "But I also want to thank our loyal audience, whose passion and enthusiasm continue to amaze and inspire us."
In its current season, Glee expanded its scope beyond Lima, Ohio's McKinley High School, following original characters Rachel and Kurt to New York City where they attend performing arts school. In the next episode (airing Thursday, April 25 at 9/8c), Sarah Jessica Parker will reprise her role as Isabelle Wright, Kurt's boss at Vogue.com, who asks him to volunteer at a charity event along with Rachel and Santana.
