Glee will hold its tune for a full season, Fox announced Monday.
Based off the strong ratings of the first three episodes, the network is adding nine episodes to the 13 that the cast has already finished shooting.
"It's fantastic to be the first show picked up and that this underdog series, like its characters, will get the chance to keep singing," said executive producer Ryan Murphy in a statement. "There are so many more stories to tell. We're grateful for the incredible passion shown by everyone involved — the unbelievable fans, the cast, crew, our partners at the network and studio and even music artists and labels."

Glee technically premiered back in May, when a preview episode following the penultimate episode of American Idol also scored impressive ratings.
