As if you weren't already aware, Lea Michele and Chris Colfer's wins at last night's People's Choice Awards were pretty big indicators that the exciting new direction (see what we did just there? LOLz!) Glee has taken with their characters this season have gone over with viewers and critics alike VERY WELL!

So it's no surprise - BUT STILL VERY EXCITING - that during the Television Critics Association's winter press tour, Fox Entertainment chairman Kevin Reilly spilled some pretty exciting details about what will be coming for the smash series…because he's VERY CONFIDENT that Glee - and by default, the Oxygen reality competition The Glee Project - will be BACK for more than just another year, regardless of what that means for graduating characters!

As he explained, what was originally conceived as a New York-set spin-off for Kurt and Rachel has managed to be a "seamless" fit for the actual series, so in later years, as other members of New Directions grow up, it could actually become much more prominent part of the storyline:

"We're going to negotiate now for the fifth season and beyond, so we're talking about those things now. I have to talk to Ryan and see where he's at right now. I don't know. I wonder — could it and should it naturally move there [to New York]? But we have to talk. This was ultimately what became of the spinoff talk: 'Let's do it within the franchise.' I do think if we can continue to follow a broad array of characters, it's like life: You have relationships, you have friends — they go off, their lives go on, and you get together and maybe you maintain a friendship, maybe you lose distance. I think we can do that within this world of people you followed. Some of them [castmembers like Dianna Agron, Mark Salling, Amber Riley and Naya Rivera] have moved on to other things or wanted to move on to other things, but they love the show, and this gives them a chance to come back and do an arc. It would be fun to continue that morphing."

YES! We VERY MUCH agree!

We admit to having reservations at first, but ultimately, the dual storylines have been an incredible way to maintain stories for old and fresh faces alike, and we'd LOVE to see that expand and continue as new generations of Gleeks join the fun!

Especially if it will keep our beloved Darren Criss from being killed off or becoming the McKinley janitor! LOLz!

What do U think? Are U excited with what's to come in the fifth season (and beyond!) of Glee?!

    I loved Glee, now not so much….. There was chemistry with the original cast, this cast just looks thrown together.

    With steadily declining ratings since season two this is surprising

    Rachel and Kurt are the heart of the show, but it's not the same without the original cast members there. I miss Dianna, Amber, Naya and Mark, there's something missing without them. I wish they would just move the whole show to New York and allow all of the originals to somehow make it there.

    I personally think the Kurt and Rachel arc in NYC are the worst part of this season of glee. Episodes that don't involve NY are the best. Judging by the sound of upcoming plans though, i don't see things changing for the better.

    I like Glee and its characters and performers. The erratic viewing availability has been an issue this season, with two LONG breaks. I think it's got an excellent production staff & I'm very hopeful about a 5th season.

    There have been very good individual episodes this season, but the overall storyline and character development has suffered very badly in this split set up. I would prefer the current set-up rather than have no Lima or no NYC, though. There are many characters in the Lima group that I would miss (too many to list).

    The best-of-all-worlds possibility would be a spin-off, for better character and storyline development. This is a business and money talks, but it would allow crossover, even on the same night. Done PROPERLY, it would benefit the show and perhaps even pick up ratings. Life (and business) is a gamble…depends on whether you want to play.

    NYC is what I wait for, not only for Kurt/Rachel (I'm not on any ship; just like talented youngsters and music) but for the more adult situations and broader storyline possibility. I'd VERY much like Santana, Mike & Mercedes to wend their way over to NYC. Mike trying for Broadway, with his wonderful twinkeltoes? Britt might escape Purdue's chicken plucking by dancing…

    I'm not so engaged by the newbies, but they have their moments. Marley & WUnique have a good chemistry, as do others. I'm willing to be patient to see if they grow on me.

    We want to see more of Joe (Samuel Larsen). We actually like most of the new people at Mckinley HS, but Samuel Larsen needs more screen time and more songs.

    Re: Stephanie – Totally agree! LOVE the NY scenes with Kurt and Rachel, and miss the old cast members, but now that Santana's in NY, and hopefully Blaine will move there, it could be an awesome spinoff, especially, if, as you said, they get other alumni to move there. Plus, I do like many of the new cast and feel they've been sort of given a raw deal from Gleeks (including myself) who have been in love with the original cast members and haven't given them enough of a chance to shine.
    I feel like the writing has suffered MAJORLY this season, like it's an afterthought, and I've only been watching for the acting and the musical numbers. If they were able to find enough talented behind-the-scenes people to do two shows, I think it would allow all the characters to shine.

    So a season who has gotten between 4 and 6 million views for each episode gets another season? This show has gone from decent to terrible in 3 years. Also dont know which critics your reading but most say this show is taking hard

    This season has been kind of a slap in the face for Samuel Larsen/Joe Hart fans. And fans of Sugar/Vanessa Lengies as well.

    I'm in the first camp. I'm a bit tired of Marley and Jake, and too much time is devoted to their storylines. Love Ryder and Kitty's plots though! I just wish we could see more Joe.
