Oxygen has canceled The Glee Project after two seasons, The Hollywood Reporter reports.
"The Glee Project will not be returning to Oxygen, but we are extremely proud of this series, which launched the careers of several talented individuals. The show had so much heart and we thank Ryan Murphy and all of the creative talent who helped make the series a critical darling," Oxygen said in a statement.

Glee may never be able to recapture its initial glow and buzz, but if this is an indication of its future, I like where it's heading.
