If you're paying attention (like we most certainly are), you've noticed that there is a lot of talk in the media about Lea Michele and Chris Colfer coming back for a fourth season of Glee, but not a lot of talk about Glee actually getting renewed for a fourth season.
That's because it hasn't yet … and we're not sure if we should be worried.
But a glimmer of hope came today in the shape of a little reality show that could. The Oxygen Network has just announced that The Glee Project has been picked up for a second season officially and should start production soon. The show had already started casting for the competition series back in September, but without official word that Glee was coming back for another season, it seemed pointless to forge ahead. You know, since the winner is supposed to get a guest spot on Glee.
Now, why would the reality show, whose prize is based on the network show being on the air, go ahead and start production if they weren't confident Glee would be back for season four? Or perhaps … they are too confident?
Hopefully, the upcoming big episodes with big names - Michael Jackson, Ricky Martin and Gloria Estefan - will pull up the ratings enough to prove to FOX that the show MUST go on!
It just … must!
P.S. - And where the hell is Samuel Larsen? Didn't he also come out on top of this show last season? Where are his 7 episodes?
